Our new Exclusive Interviews section is launching with Victoria KyriaKides, one of the top wedding fashion designers in the world. She has been established for her unique wedding gowns.

Victoria KyriaKides

Victoria KyriaKides has been creating haute couture collections since the early 2000s using her individual “sur mesure” authentic French technique. Every dress is created by hand in the master atelier to the precise measurements of each individual bride.  Every thoughtful detail is meticulously regarded.  An international trendsetter, Victoria is a favorite in Europe among her discerning clientele.

Victoria is able to reveal the beauty of the female body through her distinguished body-conscious feminine cuts, minimalism, the use of the highest quality materials available and timeless ideas.  Exceptional service and individual attention to each client by the designer are part of the brand’s essence and of utmost importance.

Victoria Kyriakides’ (VKK’s) master atelier is located in Athens, Greece, and an additional showroom is located in New York.  She presents her collections twice a year in New York.​​​​​​​​​​ Her Collections are available in numerous exclusive boutiques around the USA, Europe and Asia.

What made you want to start making wedding dresses?

My vision was to bring a fashion aesthetic with red carpet glamour to traditional bridal wear. I wanted to see women in clean-cut designs, rearrange traditional bridal forms, and design wedding dresses with the most luxurious fabrics available and edgy details.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What’s the most significant moment of your career?

There are so many great things that have happened which make me feel so grateful. Recognition from major international publications and media platforms, establishing my NYC showroom, the collaboration with Saks 5th Avenue NYC and Beverly Hills, among other collaborations with top boutiques internationally. I am enjoying every moment of this journey!

Where do you find inspiration to design your bridal collections?

It just comes with a tune, with a glance, with a feeling.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What are the latest wedding trends which you find amazing?

I just presented my SS 2020 Collection at the NYBW this April with a range fashion statement. The dresses distinguish themselves with the intricate handwork that goes into each piece. Sheer lightness,  embroidery and appliqués, Victorian sleeves and yes — sparkle, party mini dresses under skirts.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What does the perfect bride look like to you?

The bride that possesses a strong balance between dynamic and romantic qualities.

My bride mostly is a fashion conscious, often fashion-forward girl who appreciates a high level of service, a large and tasteful selection of gowns that are highly original, timeless and technically sharp. VKK brides are diverse and unique in nature, but they all possess qualities of being strong, confident and dynamic women. I have dressed all different types of public personalities. Most of my brides are lovely women who want to look and feel truly beautiful, appropriate and comfortable.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What advice do you have for future brides?

Dress for yourself and look like yourself! Don’t overdo your hair and makeup. Enhance your natural features to be the most beautiful version of yourself.

Do you have a favorite wedding gown type?

I adore the one of a kind pieces.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What is the one mistake that a bride should never make on their wedding day?

Never pick a dress just because wearing it will make someone else happy. It’s your day!

Meet Our VKK Brides

It was still hot summer in Greece when we joined forces with Stephanie Brauer and Ushna Khan photography during their short visit in Greece, to create this unique styled shoot. Our initial mood board had tropical vibes but we wanted to infuse extra spicy and modern elements like a pancake cake –instead of a traditional wedding cake – as well as the mobile beer bar we created to serve as welcome drinks during guests’ entrance.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKidesWe created an organic ceremony by the beach and with a serious contradiction of our super stylish bride with a unique Victoria Kyriakides dress and yet a truly laid back groom in Be Spoke Athens suit and windy hair look.

From idyllic beaches to wild precipitous mountains, Crete is a place of contrasts. An island which is rich in tradition and gifted with so many breath-taking sceneries, you cannot do anything else than immediately fall in love with it. The setting completes with extraordinary delicious food, enchanting folklore music, but most of all with people with huge honest smiles, ready and willing to make you never forget Crete.

Abaton Island Resort & Spa is the ideal venue for an elegant, yet effortless event. The brand new 5-star hotel at Chersonissos, except for its impeccable classy decor and a plethora of luxurious amenities, deeply respects the natural landscape mindfully preserving its original character. Minimal, yet luxurious details embellish this upscale hotel, making it the ultimate choice for the couple who looks for a classy, modern and effortlessly luxurious venue for their special day.

The ceremony gown is the “Vivienne” dress from the VKK Haute Couture collection. The net-lacy bodice with V-heart neckline compliments the bust. The rich A-line feather skirt moves with the body in motion and you will be able to enjoy more of it in our short video trailer. A gorgeous pair of baby pink patent Jimmy Choo’s beautifully complete this contemporary, yet elegant look.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

The tradition was infused with local musicians from Crete, escorting our bride to be in the ceremony area and rhyming traditional “mantinades”/ wishes in forms of short poems, to our couple after their ceremony. See more photos from this Elegant Beach Wedding in Crete and get inspired.

Wedding Photographers Advice

Top wedding photographers share their secrets & advice on how to get the best photos on your wedding day. What couples should avoid and how to get the best results from your photographer. Let’s hear them out!

As a Wedding & Event Planning Agency for more than 8 years, we had the opportunity to organize countless luxury weddings. As a result of that, we have interacted with many vendors and professionals in order to organize all these weddings. Who will disagree that wedding photographers are part of the top 3 professionals that are really close to the couple? Next to the wedding planner and to the bridal gown’s designer, they see the couple under the stressful process of the wedding preparation.

Like everything in life, all great achievements are based on communication. To have magnificent wedding photographs it’s important that you and your photographer have communicated all the details. To avoid any disappointments take the time and explain to your wedding photographer what do you want and how you have imagined your big day photos. Also is important to hear wedding photographers advise on the matter and trust their experience.

However, if you’ve never had the chance to talk with a professional wedding photographer before, then these golden tips from them will shed light on what is important in a wedding photography session. Also, you will discover what drives crazy the wedding photographers on a wedding day. Enjoy their words of wisdom and keep notes if you want to ask your wedding photographer the right questions.

Choosing the right photographer to document such a special day naturally builds up anxiety for couples as they understand that when the wedding is over photographs will be their memories of the day. The advice I would give to the couples choosing their wedding photographer would include the following:

If a couple feels uncertain where to begin I would suggest that they look for the style of wedding photographs they’re most attracted to, asking themselves what they wish to see in their wedding images, what colours or tones make their hearts skip, and how they would like their event to be captured. There’s is literally a sea of choices and inspiration from numerous wedding blogs which makes it so much easier for brides to get an idea on different styles in wedding photography.

On a practical basis, it does help a lot to Pin one’s favourite photographs and to create an inspiration board of one’s own. Using these as guides the bride will understand what exactly she’s looking for. A pivotal moment I guess is when – in the process of choosing between wedding photographers- you start envisioning yourself as having already been photographed by this specific creative. This is the moment when your first connection with a photographer begins.

Do pay notice on that personal connection you feel because that means you will be feeling comfortable and at ease with this person. Scheduling a Skype call and seeing how your first meeting flows is key. Some couples are reserved and would require some guidance, others have a strong vision and others are in search of that “click” thing. Personality goes a long way and you always know it in your heart when you’ve found the “one”. It’s like with an engagement ring, it goes way beyond simply the investment, you pick it because it speaks of who you are. It’s so….you!

Let me give one more advice to the couples getting ready for their wedding photo shoot.

After planning your wedding day for several months, meeting your photographer and discussing all the necessary details with them in advance is essential.

On your wedding day, you have to try your best to relax and enjoy every bit of what’s happening around you, absorb it, memorize it, and live it. Leave all the concerns to the professionals who are there for you: your wedding planner, your photographer, the whole team that is working to make this day happen the way you have envisioned.

Standing before the camera might feel awkward at first, so act naturally. Trust your photographer and allow them to guide you. Personally, I require no specific preparation for a photo shooting from my brides, it is my job to make them feel comfortable around me and in front of my camera. They don’t have to prepare or stress about it. The only thing I ask – is trust and time to be able to access my creativity and produce some beautiful images.

I always have in mind that this is the couple’s wedding day and this means you must be flexible enough to fit your photography style, aesthetics and vision in their plan and expectations. Nevertheless, it makes my life so much easier and the photos so much better when photography is an important factor while planning their wedding day.

Portraits of the bride and groom individually, right after their preparations, are often the prettiest since everyone looks perfect! Most of the times though, we must make them under time pressure. The same thing happens with family and couple’s portraits either because there is not much time for them in the wedding plan or because we don’t have much time with daylight.

One more thing often overlooked is the time we need to create images that describe the venue and the decoration at the reception. Most of the couples invest a big part of their wedding budget in them but don’t realise the time required for making beautiful images that showcase the concept and style of their wedding.

Especially when the photographer is working alone, it is of crucial importance to include in the wedding plan 30-40 min of the photographer’s time to capture the decoration and styling images when the reception venue is still with no guests. Of course, our life can be much easier when the couple books a second photographer that will fill in the wedding schedule gaps and make the plan of the day smoother.

In my experience, I have found, the key to a successful wedding event is that there must be positive and open communication between the couple to be and the photographer.

This Ancient Greece inspired wedding was full of unexpected surprises for the newlyweds. The ceremony took place at the church of Agios Spyridon at Pagkrati, where then the couple and their guests walked to their venue. As they entered the park, a surprise awaited our bride from her groom and her bridesmaids and a lovely bridal parade with traditional musicians and a bridal “she said yes” banner awaited her. ✨ ✨ The photographer @pahountisg captured perfectly the vibes of the wedding day.

A major factor is having a realistic timeline to take into account, as far as designing a wedding event. The ideal time to have the wedding ceremony is two-and-a-half hours before sunset. At this time photographs of the closest family, friends and couple are complimented when taken at the best light of the day. Τhis way we also get to have enough time with the couple as I personally feel the need to have images that show their true connection.

The best experience for the photographer and lovely couple are met inevitably with this simple rule of thumb!

As a professional photographer, I believe that all professionals involved in a wedding have some golden pieces of advice for the couple. And in some cases, we all need a reminder of them! But the good thing is that experience is empowering us with a lot of skills. I am a fan of good communication prior to the wedding day and I believe that not only it can solve potentially negative situations, but it can also act proactively.

This is the reason I make sure to get to know the bride and groom to be months before their beautiful wedding day. Plus, I always get in touch with the wedding planner, to make sure I am in the information loop and discuss schedule, and other colleagues that I know I will be closely working with on that day, i.e. the film-maker. My motto is that we are all working toward the same goal: to give the happy couple one of the best experiences they can have. Communication is the key!

What drives us a little crazy -but at the same time makes us very creative – on the wedding day is the couple’s anxiety. However, this “madness” provides us the most spontaneous, strong and emotional clicks. Our advice would be to just act as you feel, trust your professional photographers and finally, this special day will take value over the years.

What drives my creativity at weddings are the people. Is the reason that I am working as a portrait and people’s photographer. It’s the magical unique moment during the photo session that I am losing the world around me and feel like everything happens only in the picture that I can see through my camera. My advice would be for the couple to enjoy this unique experience with all their heart.

Wedding Planning Assistant’s 1st year

Our wedding planning assistant’s 1st year had been more than amazing. It was a year full of big smiles and great achievements! Nefeli, Happy 1st year!

A year ago a new wedding planning assistant walked into our Agency. Nefeli has the magical power to make you love her with her warm smile. No one can resist her kind and sweet character. A few days ago was her 1st year anniversary and as a Team, we surprised her with an out of the blue celebration. Between sweets and happy dances, we asked her how was her first year at Rock Paper Scissors Events Agency.

Nefeli’s words made us shed a tear of joy:

Last summer my life changed completely! I was standing in front of a white desk with a beautiful white orchid on top of it. Helena told me “take care of the plant and water it up to grow up.” And our journey began on that day…

I was so excited about my new job. All I could think of it was how much I wanted it all of these, to stay in this Agency, work and learn the ropes of the job. The creative vibes made me lose track of time and to my surprise, the summer passed faster than any other.

My calendar was full of express trips that never felt like business obligations. Everything was magical and looked like a joyful adventure. Hoping from one Greek island to the next one, learning how to organize luxury destination weddings next to Helena & Paraskevi was an amazing experience.  Although I had to meet so many people and see so many places in such a short period of time, I wouldn’t change a single thing and would do it again from the beginning!

I wish I could revive our first summer together. These 2 ladies have taught everything I know as a wedding planning assistant. My first summer in the RPS Events Agency made me appreciate the work behind all the luxury events and showed me that spectacular results are founded in a well-structured team.  I was trying with all my heart to cope with the demands of everyday tasks and the challenges of event planning coordination. Day by day, week by week, month by month…

And then it happened… everything fell into place when Paraskevi asked me if I wanted to join them for launch after office. That was my Aha! moment. It was then when I felt like part of the team. I will never forget this warm feeling of gratification!

During my first year, both ladies helped me to improve and guided me like true mentors. They did everything in their power to teach me how to become a capable wedding planning assistant. In the same time, they both provide me the space to express my personality and my ideas. Having the opportunity to open up and show all your potentials is a gift from heaven.  I am so thankful for having them by my side as mentors, helping me to improve at all levels.

Next to Helena and Paraskevi, I learned that a team with good communication is never influenced by external factors.

Wedding in Antiparos

This couple decided to get married in Antiparos, surrounded by friends and family. They also wanted to make a holiday out of it for their guests traveling all the way and what can be better than the Greek islands in the summer?  Natural, elegant with elements of naivety and a little bit influenced by the Greek folk tradition were some of the characteristics that made this wedding so unique. See more from this elegant wedding in Antiparos here.

 The wedding flowers were selected according to the wedding theme. White was the main color with different shades of greens. It’s an elegant and classical combination that permits the rest of the decorations to stand out.

Lexi being half Greek always wanted to get married in Greece. So getting married in Antiparos at her brother’s island house, surrounded by friends and family, felt the right thing to do. As you can see the wedding was unforgettable and this bridal bouquet is breathtaking… even the light seems to agree with us!

Fairytale Wedding

This luxurious and fairytale wedding has stolen our hearts from the very first moment! A majestic wedding in Athenian Riviera surrounded by an idyllic landscape, breathtaking decoration and your closest people – doesn’t that just sound like the most wonderful wedding day?

Different shades of greenery & gold combined with white floating gardens, under the starry Greek sky, was the ultimate wedding decoration. Starting with the reception area, the aristocratic and warm setting made the wedding look like a dream that became real. Both the bride and groom were incredibly stylish and elegant.

This fairytale wedding organized with so much love for Vicky and George. Two Greeks born and raised in Canada, that wanted their wedding to take place in their home country in the most traditional way. So if you ask yourselves how a Greek traditional wedding looks like (including plate smashing, live bouzoukia and a warm dinner feast) here is your chance to see it with your own eyes. Get lost in this wedding flower inspiration!

The event design was focused on the hanging flowers & lights concept. We choose the white as the main color and added rich shades of gold and natural greens, with plenty of wooden details. The couple opted for a romantic & luxury wedding with traditional values, but was open to the idea of creating something spectacular. The floral design had a major influence on the final outcome. Being in a location next to the sea, flowers had to be majestic. Although it took for hours to put together this wedding table decor, we appreciate the opportunity of organizing this wedding event. The wedding decor highlighted the couple’s happiest day of their life. 

Unique Wedding Flowers Decoration

Modern Wedding

The couple asked for a minimal wedding so we came up with the mix of copper and marble. We started out with the minimal design of invitations by Atelier invitations and then also took it to our tables with the creation of a unique personalized favor made out of marble that also served as a seating card.

Then we softened our minimalistic tablescape by adding the abstract floral napkins wrapped with copper napkin rings, and the unique flower mix with King proteas, orchids, perla roses, eucalyptus, eustoma. The ceremony took place in the same venue under a unique arch where king protea flowers gave a lovely contrast to Greece’s blue skies. Decoration of the cake was prepared from our team’s florist and it was another of her wild creations of the day. It was a unique day followed by a great party! What more can a planner ask for?

Island Dreams

Lexi and Olly’s elegant boho greek folk wedding

As seen in Festival Brides:

Good morning babes, and welcome to another beautiful real wedding treat here on the blog today. This wedding is for all you free-spirited Goddesses that picture a wedding with blue skies, bursting sunshine and a Mediterranean view to die for! Lexi and Olly held their wedding on the island of Antiparos in Greece, at her brother’s family home. The pair worked closely with Greek wedding planners Rock Paper Scissors to achieve their elegant, traditional folk-inspired island wedding last summer.

Traditional Greek features and colour schemes (think nautical shades of blues and white) formed the basis of the decor, complimented by hanging fruits, foliage, olive branches and herbs….

We wanted to keep the decor very elegant and natural with elements of naivety and Greek folk tradition. The flowers were all white and green with island herbs and foliage mixed in, and the dinnerware was blue and white.

Dressed in the most gorgeous fabrics and bohemian lace, the bridal party took the day by storm in the most dreamy gowns. Lexi took inspiration from her Greek roots (she’s half Greek!) to accessorise her Inbal Dror dress – she wore ancient Greek-inspired jewelry and a bespoke gold leaf crown whilst her maids followed her, draped in traditional Greek Goddess style dresses.

We are totally in love with the photography style of this collection, mastered by Yann from Life Stories….

Yann Audic was fantastic! Both Olly and I hate really staged photos and love the natural look – Yann is a master at this!

We’ve included some of the pre-wedding beach disco shots too. We wish we were there for this epic pool party – it looks SO much fun! Here’s pretty bride Lexi to fill you in on all the details. Read more

Traditional Greek Wedding at Family Home

Bride: I’m half Greek, so I always wanted to get married in Greece. We were married in Antiparos at my brother’s house. We wanted to make a holiday out of it for our guests travelling a long way! Also, Antiparos is only one of two islands which you can legally get married in your own home.

We had many Greek elements including the traditional Greek folk band procession playing for my bridal entrance and Tamata favours (a religious votive offering, depicting hearts and Greek wedding crowns). I also had Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love, symbols of love and fertility (doves, myrtle flowers, shells, pomegranates and wheat sheafs) hand embroidered on to my veil by the incredibly talented Daisy Sheldon.

Beautiful Arched Ceremony

The ceremony on the roof was conducted under a beautiful flower arch overlooking the sea. We had a mix of readings, sage smudging blessings and the official legal signings. It is traditional on the islands for the bride to be accompanied to the church by a traditional Greek band.

Elegant Greek Destination Wedding Featured in Festival BridesAll food was designed to encapsulate Greek island tradition with strong greek flavors and modern elegance. Barbarossa Paros (the best fish restaurant on the island) catered all the food and it was amazing! Greek mezze, lots of fresh fish and seafood with herbs and big bowls of fresh salads. We really wanted to keep the feeling of our own big family dinners – the waiters served everything French style on big platters which allowed people to pick and choose what they wanted to eat at the table.  Read more…

Kids Events

Happy kids have happy memories! Give your children the joy of having unforgettable celebrations during all childhood important days. Although no child can actually remember the day of his/her baptism, still it comes a point where they open their photo album and treasure the moments. They ask questions and want to hear the story of their christening, again and again.

Give your children the best possible memories of their childhood. Throw the best parties for their birthdays and all the significant days that gradually will become loving & bonding family events. Nothing can compare with funny stories in family gatherings, where all your loved ones can shed light from their side of the stories.

Despite the fact, we are into Luxury Destination Weddings & Corporate Events Planning for more than 8 years, we have a soft spot for kids events. Our collaboration with We Can Do It For Kids Only, has given us the chance to party like kids! We are thrilled for this blessing!

A Greek baptism is a very important event for families. Apart from religious reasons, it’s also the first official presentation of the baby in front of the extended family circle and friends. The parents will have to choose the child’s name, decide on Godparents, do all the planning, send the invitations, prepare the favors and all the details of the christening celebrations, ahead of the big day.

Summer is only days away and the kid’s party season is ready to rock your evenings! These unforgettable events will give you a clue of what to expect from the upcoming events.

Dare to Add Vivid Colors in Christenings

Rock your child’s christening by forgetting all rules. Add vivid colors and go to the extreme for decorations. Children love strong combinations and are attracted by unique toys.

This colorful christening in Lamia stole all the impressions and kids didn’t stop to play for hours. The original idea was based in Frida Karlo but in a more kid’s friendly version. Parents cared for everything with so much care! Especially the mother of our little Malena was full of amazing ideas. She had a clear vision of her little one’s day and guided us with all her inspiration. The venue was the best background for this contemporary themed christening.

Pompons, colorful ribbons, and linens played a truly important role in the decoration enabling us for this fiesta. Huge thanks to all vendors involved:

Colorful Christenings in Greece

Handmade painted details are adding a stylish tone to a baptism. For people that have an eye for details, art & eco-friendly decorations leave the best impressions. Also, kids feel more comfortable next to objects that don’t have the invisible sign of “be-careful-not-to-break” them.

All parents are aware that curiosity drives children eyes and want to play with everything around them. It’s wise to create a kid’s friendly environment, full of enjoyable activities without worrying for any playground accidents.

We Can Do It For Kids Only, pays attention to decoration and the quality of food & sweets. Everything is well-taken care off, with respect to any special food allergies. Even the toys are selected with great attention to children’s safety.

Windsurfing Inspired Christening

This family’s love for windsurfing was the inspiration for the christening’s theme. We let our minds get blown away by Thissea’s mom creativity. Therefore, we created this happy and cheerful day for this cute baby’s guests. His dad hobby impressed the guests and the kids!

Deciding to have a celebration after your child christening is the best reason to try the wildest ideas! Because the main guests are children! Forget formalities and boring themes… try the most extreme ideas and your little guests will adore you. All family members and friends can gather and have a festive dinner but kids want to play.

Knowing that the family had a soft spot for windsurfing the idea lead us to this jaw-dropping theme. Sharks, windsurfing mood, summer colors, sea games and activities. The theme included a lot of paper sharks, lambs, exotic fruits, balloons, blue and gold colors, and summer toys. Get ready to be inspired!

Wedding Planning Consultation

The Winner’s Words

On Monday 4 April 2019, I had the pleasure to attend a private full-service wedding planning consultation by Rock Paper Scissors for 2-hours. When I won the RPS Events Giveaway at Instagram, I didn’t know what to expect.

On the way to the appointment, I was thinking about my upcoming wedding and what questions should I ask, regarding the planning of my wedding. There were so many topics in my mind but couldn’t pick up a starting point.

As soon as I entered their offices, everything has fallen into place… The girls, dear Elena and the adorable Paraskevi, made me feel so warm and within seconds their professionalism brought peace into my anxious mind. I realized that in front of me I had two wedding professionals. Rock Paper Scissors office is a space particularly well-cared for, with the elements of event planning in harmony with the decoration. You feel cozy and relaxed from hello!

Elena and Paraskevi, welcomed me warmly and after having a delicious coffee, we started talking about my wedding. At that particular moment, it became clear to me, that my agony to gather a list of questions for my wedding planning was totally unnecessary!

All they needed was just a short description of the theme for my wedding. Elena and Paraskevi, unfold an astonishing set of top-notch ideas for my wedding day and put in place details that I didn’t even know how important could be for an unforgettable wedding experience. They fill in the gaps in issues that definitely every bride-to-be should know before the big day. The mist of ignorance disappeared in 120 minutes! The best 2 hours of my life!

I am really thankful for their time and attention. Their valuable pieces of advice lift a huge burden from my shoulders. Working with professionals like RPS Events is priceless, literally & metaphorically.

Why we support Brides-to-be?

Part of our values in our company is focused on the empowerment of women. Being a Wedding Planning Agency for more than 8 years, we interact mainly with women. It is in our understanding women do so many things for their closed ones and wear plenty of hats in their life. They are mothers, wives, sisters, businesswomen, daughters, best friends, care providers, lovers, entrepreneurs and so much more…  We want to support and honor our own gender.

Brides-to-be are superheroes dressed in wedding gowns. Only if you have planned your own wedding you can comprehend the tremendous pressure a woman has to endure in order to have the wedding of her dreams. Has to satisfy two completely different families, while she keeps so many balls in the air! We wish to provide a break from this challenging process with our Giveaway: 2 hours of free consultation.

Minimal, yet luxurious details embellish this upscale wedding in Crete at the Abaton Island Resort & Spa. It was a privilege for us to design this outstanding wedding photo shoot in Greece.

An island which is rich in tradition and gifted with so many breath-taking sceneries, you cannot do anything else than immediately fall in love with it. The setting completes with extraordinary delicious food, enchanting folklore music, but most of all with people with huge honest smiles, ready and willing to make you never forget Crete.

Luxury Destination Wedding in Crete by Rock Paper Scissors Events in Greece

Crete is definitely a romantic destination

Elaina was definitely one of our most delicate and fancy brides. So elegant in her manners though completely aware of the style she was going for, she didn’t settle for anything but the best for her wedding day. She wanted an organic and elegant feeling and we tried to embrace the magnificent Cretan surroundings and incorporate the absolutely stunning views to our concept. Elaina and Anis are a couple truly in love and along with their families and friends they got one great night of celebration and many more afterward in the Greek islands.


Bride’s words reveal the magic of true love:

“Living in New York City you meet a lot of people, but chances are those people never seem to quite catch your eye – with Anis things were different. From our first meeting, things went fast, there was an instant attraction. It wasn’t about going out to a bar, or fancy dinners, it was about adventure, excursions and getting to know each other. I took a chance and decided to join him on a work trip to LA. I thought if we get along traveling so soon in our relationship it was something worth investing in. I was right. From then on out we spent every minute together. After we got engaged we knew we didn’t want to wait to get married. So six months to the day of our engagement we said I do.”

A Jackie Kennedy Mood Wedding in Greece

The island of Meganisi is located just between Lefkada and the western mainland coasts of Greece. Right opposite from the well-known island of Skorpios, the idyllic Greek island where Aristotle Onassis married Jackie Kennedy. Meganisi is an island with few population and limited tourist development but with lush greenery and blue-green waters. Some beaches can be reached on foot and others are accessible only by boat. There is no bus on this small island of the Ionian Sea and all transport has to be done by foot or private means, like boat or motorbike.

This lovely island is where the parents of the groom are originated and the location our couple chose for their chic minimalist yet boho island wedding. Certainly, for a wedding planner, organizing a big wedding on a tiny island was a challenge in and of itself.

Our most difficult moment was figuring out how a small, typical Greek taverna could accommodate properly so many people and keep an authentic character yet elegant and unique: By taking things back to the basics, or more precisely by sophisticated simplicity. We wanted to create a simple and soft look so we used classic color combinations like brown, gold and green. We added wildflowers, mixed textures and traditionally inspired elements for a shameless boho vibe that this location would never forgive us if we didn’t.

Words from our couple: “We met during our master’s studies at Harvard Business School. We didn’t date there but friends and life moved us both to the same city we began dating while working in San Francisco in 2013. We chose to get married on the island of Meganisi. Meganisi is important to both of us because we’ve spent every summer of our relationship there. Peter’s Maternal grandparents were born on Meganisi and he’s spent every summer of his upbringing visiting the island and specifically the village of Spartochori.”

Destination Wedding in Andros

Words from our bride: “Rock Paper Scissors Events made our dream come true! Our wedding was magical, spectacular and unique. The team’s professionalism and passion created a night to remember. All our guests were quite amazed by the wedding’s setting, decoration, food/bar catering & music/lighting. For that we are grateful and we truly thank Rock Paper Scissors’ girls for their passion and enthusiasm in assisting us and making our wedding day unforgettable!!”

This destination wedding on the island of Andros will steal your heart and make you want to explore more of this island’s unique beauty and history. Bride’s origin from the island called for a ceremony on the monastery of Agia Eirini and then the dinner party at their house in the picturesque village of Stenies.

We immediately fell in love with the breathtaking view both to the sea and to green covered mountains. This is why we went for a modern rustic theme full of vibrant colors matching the surroundings and the stone built house. We created custom made wooden pergolas with olive branches and kumquat, green charger plates and ceramic pots hosted our vibrant and colorful blooms with a mix of coral peonies, spray and garden roses, dahlias, zinnia, stock and waxflower. 2.000 candles and lots and lots of fairy and bulb lights lit this stunning mansion and surrounded guests with an ambient feeling. Our dessert table was filled with traditional Andrean desserts and mouthful savories from The cakers.

Wedding Planning Tips

When planning your wedding, it’s good to have some guidance in order to avoid headaches and stressful situations. For more than 8 years we have planned and organized countless weddings, therefore you can rely on our experience. Here we have gathered our top tips & tricks to make a bride’s life easier. Brides gather around and check out our indispensable wedding planning tips below.

10 Wedding Planning Tips by Rock Paper Scissors Events

1 – Prepare an accurate guest list

Your guest list is the first step you need to follow for your wedding planning, right after setting the date! It’s truly important since this will define the budget to be spent onwards. It may sound impossible to draft and edit your guest list but is more than essential. Having a clean list from the very beginning, it will make easier to keep track on last-minute additions, follow-ups including RSVPs, menu arrangements, table setting and thank you notes.

Set your feet on the ground and be realistic with the numbers. We know, this isn’t the most pleasant part of any wedding preparations but budgets have limits. Your original budget will define your guest list count. Planning a wedding for 50 guests is totally different from organizing a wedding for 200 guests. Take under consideration that for each guest you add,  certain changes follow at:

  • the number of plates your caterer will prepare,
  • the number of favors,
  • the number of chair rentals & table set up,
  • the quantity of food and cake,
  • (in some cases) accommodation & transportation means
  • the venue capacity

Write down your guest list by placing at the top, your family members and your best friends. Leave some room for coworkers, neighbors or even your parent’s friends and some people that may have invited you to their wedding. In case you have to limit your guest list, then you will start from the bottom. If you are planning a destination wedding, these numbers will affect the final expenses.


2 – Find a venue that speaks to your heart

It is important to have a clear idea of the venue you’re looking for. Like if you wanted in a vineyard, on olive orchards, Cliffside, by the beach, in a castle or a hotel. This will, later on, define your wedding’s theme and decoration concept and design. Bear in mind, that location is relevant to local weather conditions. For example, an open wedding in a forest may hold some chilly surprises or even rain.

Before you book a wedding venue, consider speaking with a wedding planner. Wedding experts can provide solutions that will respect your vision and your budget. If you have your guest list ready (or almost ready), a wedding planner will suggest the best available options for your wedding day. Professionals know how to smooth the stress and permit to soon to be married couples to stay true to their themselves without compromising in quality.


3 – Think of your guests

It’s a fact that you won’t be able to please everyone but at least try to be thoughtful while choosing your venue or ceremony location by ticking off boxes like nearby hotels, transportation, venue proximity. Also, your guests are the ones you’re honoring by creating this party, thus you need to take care of them with respect to choosing your menu and drinks. If you’re inviting out-of-town guests or having a destination wedding, consider looking for a venue close to a hotel.

10 Wedding Planning Tips and Tricks by Rock Paper Scissors Events in Greece

4 – Do not negotiate on small things

Ok, it’s always a good idea to negotiate and try to make savings for more but think twice of the amount you’re negotiating for. It’s different to negotiate a few euros for your invitation and a few thousand on drinks and menu. Prioritize on what’s really important.  Make clever choices if you want to have the wedding of your dreams. It’s essential to be prepared for any surprise expenses like additional tailoring needs or a new pair of bridal shoes.

A wedding needs an enormous amount of tiny details to become unforgettable. To keep a balance between things that must-have and those that can be skipped, you will need a checklist. For example, there is no wedding without a wedding gown or a groom’s attire, right? But you can have a wedding with fewer guests or different kind of wedding invitations or without a live music band or even with seasonal flowers. Have a heart to heart discussion with your better half and your wedding planner, in order to set some limits on what is negotiable.


5 – Know how to read between the lines on Pinterest photos

It’s only normal that Pinterest is every bride’s go to. On the other hand, this can be truly overwhelming since it can really mix you up if you can’t really know what is it truly that you like in a photo. Also, bear in mind that many photos are not an outcome of a real wedding but perhaps of a styled shoot so the details you see could also be distorted also with the photographer’s touch.

It’s a good idea to Pin what you like on your special wedding board. If you add little notes for specific details on each pin, this will guide you on what you really love at each image. Maybe you are attracted to soft shades of coral or you love blue shades.  Pinterest can help you build a mood board for your personal style. This will guide you as you move forward to pick up the best combinations for your dream wedding.

After some time, you should better delete Pins that no longer suit you. When you will have a clear picture of your final vision, then start looking for the vendors behind each wedding. Most importantly, discover which wedding planner is closer to your wedding style. As soon as you find the ideal wedding designer & planner, then everything will come in place. Pinterest is perfect to set a general mood and define what works best for you. And it works as a starting point for the creation of your unique wedding theme.



Rock Paper Scissors Events in Greece Pinterest

6 – Plan ahead and use a time plan

Take your time. Don’t start last minute so you don’t get stressed. Prepare a to-do list that you can fill in with every detail that comes to mind. Set dates on when you should add to do what.

7 – Write down your “Cant’ live without’s”

Remind yourself what’s truly important. Let your creativity flow but on the other hand, we bet your budget is not endless. So remind yourself during the process what are your “can’t live withouts? Great food? Amazing view? Unique wedding dress?

8 – Eliminate ideas

Don’t get caught up in perfection. Prioritize! And keep it simple. As we said already since your budget is not endless, in your initial mood board scrap out ideas that perhaps were not meant to be for your venue or if you’re not going for this rustic theme, after all.

10 Wedding Planning Tips and Tricks by Rock Paper Scissors Events in Greece

9 – Don’t make this all about you

Be present. Be a team with everyone in the process and enjoy time with everyone involved. It’s one of those rare moments to enjoy with your party girls while trying on several bridal gowns. Your rare moments to involve your mom and trust her taste and those organizational skills. To hug your dad as often as you can since soon you won’t be his little girl anymore. Last but not least, enjoy those creative mornings with your hubby to be and see for once again how much you are aligned but also feel free to quarrel on little things. Your skills to manage these small “hiccups” will be needed in your married life.


10 – Get yourself a wedding planner!

Why? To make your wedding more fun, stress-free and get to enjoy all the fun appointments such as Food tasting, venue tours, cake tasting, flower sampling and the like so it does not have to be all business. Also for you to be able to be relaxed and focused when your big day arrives and be present and enjoy every little moment.

It is no secret, that a wedding planner, will keep everything on track and deal with all the tiring tasks behind the scenes. Will stand by your side and protect you from any unnecessary expenses. Also, they can coordinate the wedding preparation, the wedding day and the wedding celebrations while you enjoy a full body beauty spa week.

One Bonus Tip

Never forget that you will need time. With the help of your wedding planner, create a wedding planning schedule and do things one by one. This will save you time, money and energy. It would be wise not to book any vendors before you find your own wedding designer & planner.

How to Set a Copper & Marble Table Decor for Your Event

How to Set a Copper & Marble Table Decor for your Event

Copper & Marble Table Decor

If copper and marble accents speak to you, why not use them for a festive Easter set up? Can you imagine mastering a unique art de la table for your family and friends, a glass of wine and sampling your favorite Easter delights? Ok, it’s not the common concept, but we are here to keep things modern and crisp even on this time of the year!

Are you wondering how a copper & marble table decor would look like? Just marvelous! Trust us, we are wedding planners for more than 8 years and we’ve got this.

You see, sometimes the unexpected table styling could make a huge difference for your guests. Balance and complementary colors & materials tend to transform an edgy table decor into an elegant and stylish concept. Experienced professionals in event planning dare to try controversial decor ideas in order to create unique events for their clients.

This is what we do!

Before we start, we have to confess that marble is one of our favorite elements in table decor. Marble is a timeless design element that will never get dated or out of style. There is a sense of serenity and calmness in it and, when is mixed up with copper and wood, can be one of the supportive stars.

Set the Copper & Marble Table

Today we will see how to try this stylish copper & marble table decor for a festive dinner table and wow your guests. Let’s see how:

For starters, the color base of the main linen tablecloth should be white or off white or in soft grey-white. We recommend using a palette of white and grey tones on the plates for a clean and sophisticated look.

Sandy hues, turquoise pops and peachy pinks is a good idea for the napkins if you want to have a softer outcome. Feel comfortable to pair it with fine rose gold flatware and copper napkin rings. They complement the tablescape and create even more pattern with the, out of the ordinary, scene.

Devil is in the details! Try to forget what mothers used to advice us for table setup. Dare to use modern glassware and combine different sizes or even different styles. There is nothing more astonishing than having different crystals on the table but within the same color palette. By keeping the art de la table objects under the same tones it makes it easier to look luxurious. Sous verres, sous plats and even platters for your Easter eggs are just a few ideas to incorporate it into your tabletop’s pieces.

In case you are expecting some new members for your dinner table, it’s a good idea to add a printed menu of what is about to be served. Some people are quite sensitive to specific tastes & flavors. Avoid awkward moments and keep some neutral recipes as a must-haves in your menu. Mix & max traditional plates with some new age vegetarian-friendly suggestions. Take our word for this one, everyone will adore your menu!

How to Set a Copper & Marble Table Decor by Rock Paper Scissors Events

Hey! Remember, some family and friends need a drink or two before the food starts. Be ready and organize a corner for spirit lovers. Prefer to be near the porch door, for those friends that can’t live without a smoke. Sinners, sin and smokers, smoke… what to do? We love them, both!

Last but not least are flowers. Add flowers everywhere around the house. An event should satisfy all the senses. Flowers are destinated to beautify our lives and are the hostess’s best friend.  The geometric and modern centerpieces mixing up with springtime flowers, will transfuse the playful touch and help tie the whole look together.

Imagine having white porcelain on top of a dark grey tablecloth. It’s too strong for the eye and extremely difficult to balance it with the copper elements. If you already have a dark grey tablecloth, you can add a white layer of a seethrough tablecloth and soften the general impression. Keep in mind the tablecloths are the most distinguished element on the table, due to its dimensions/size. It covers the whole table!

Can I add traditional Easter red eggs?

Off course you can! You can add any color of eggs. After all, it’s Easter, right? Have you ever tried to offer Easter eggs into a copper basket, filled with flowers? Have a look at this idea:
