A bride’s story #2: It will be the biggest party of the year, hands down!

· Destination Weddings, RockPaperScissors, RPS Team, Wedding Planning, Weddings · , , , ,

Our couples are our protagonists and our absolute heroes. During these struggling times, having to face the dilemma of postponing your wedding or not can be, well, a lot. While being in constant touch with our brides and helping them navigate through the Covid-19 noise, we decided to bring them all together, even if miles apart.

This idea began after various calls and emails with all of you. We are all in this together and your voice and thoughts can be helpful to each other. So, we thought that by sharing them we could give everyone some hope, guidance and, of course, lift your spirits!

Each one of you is unique to us and so is your wedding. Since you come from different countries, different parameters apply to your decision about holding or postponing your initial date, making it unique as well.

We are here to help you go all the way, and so are our other couples with their stories.

This is our second #helpabride story. Let’s keep on planning and take courage one from another. #keepworkingforlove

Jessica & Pierre-Loic’s Story

Tell us your names

Jessica Djeziri & Pierre-Loic Jacquemin

Where do you live and why did you choose Greece for your wedding?

Originally in Paris, France, and during our engagement we decided that planning a wedding abroad wasn’t difficult enough and we moved further south to Lyon, France. We absolutely love Greece and its islands, the history, the landscapes, and of course the food!

What is/was the original date of your wedding?

May 23 2020

How many guests? And where are they coming from?

We have 70 guests, coming from France, Belgium, the UK, and Brazil.

What made you decide to hold your original date as is at the moment?

For now we’ve decided to stick to our initial plan, depending on the situation in France we might even be able to have our wedding on Pierre-Loic’s birthday as we planned!

What do your guests think about all this?

They are being very supportive, and they are anxious to be able to travel to Greece and celebrate to what will be the biggest party of the year, hands down!

What is your advice to other future 2020 couples struggling to make a decision?

Keep the faith, rely on your wedding planner to help you navigate these difficult times, and be grateful for having found the best life partner!

Heather & Nick’ s story

Tell us your names 

Heather Kobus & Nick Scures

Where do you live and why did you choose Greece for your wedding?

We live in Palm Beach, Florida. My fiancé and I wanted to do a destination wedding because we love to travel and Greece holds a very special place in our hearts since it was one of our first trips abroad together. On top of that, Nick’s family is originally from Greece! Plus, it’s an absolutely stunning country!

How many guests?

100

What’s the new date, after rescheduling?

September 18 2020

Which were the steps you followed initially?

Initially, I was really on edge and very anxious. There aren’t any clear answers to the question “should I postpone my wedding due to a pandemic?”. I reached out to fellow brides-to-be, my mom, and of course Helena to see where their heads were at during the first half of March. We initially decided we will not postpone unless we are forced to!

What helped you more into taking this decision?

As the Covid-19 pandemic spread and more travel bans were put in place, more quarantine rules were set once travelers crossed borders and flights were cancelled through the month of April, we had more and more wedding guests (that had already RSVP’d “yes” and bought flights for our wedding) reaching out asking if the wedding is still happening May 25th. Around the same time, we received an email from Rock Paper Scissors suggesting weddings through the month of May should consider postponing. At this point we felt the writing was on the wall- we must postpone our special day!

How long did it take you to change the date?

Thanks to Helena, her team, and our vendors (all suggested by Rock Paper Scissors), we had a new date within 24 hours of making the decision to postpone our wedding.

What was your wedding planner’s role in all of this?

The best way for me to describe Helena’s role is: we absolutely, without a doubt, could not have handled this without her! The reason the transition happened so quickly is because Helena was proactively reaching out to our vendors informing them, asking their availability and rescheduling everything we had originally planned! We made the decision on a Tuesday evening and by Friday we had everything rescheduled plus a “Change Our Date” postcard designed to send out to our guests informing them of our date change. It felt like a rock had been lifted- I was no longer anxious or worried! And all of our guests were very receptive and supportive of the date change.

What is your advice to other future brides struggling to make a decision?

This is a really emotional time. You have envisioned and dreamed of your wedding for days or months or most likely years! So when something comes up that is completely unforeseen, such as a global pandemic, it can feel like the end of the world. But it’s only the end of the world if you make it that way. In reality, you will marry your Prince Charming. It may not be the exact date you had originally planned but whether you take your vows on your original date or a future date, it will happen. And it will be just as amazing as you originally anticipated! Remember, you are not alone! My fiancé and I were very worried and obviously struggled at first to make this final decision to postpone, but after all is said and done I know that we made the right choice. We feel so very fortunate to have Rock Paper Scissors on our side at a time like this. Take their advice and let them take the wheel – they truly do have your best interest on top of mind!

Wedding planning in the COVID-19 era

Dear friends, couples and colleagues,

As COVID-19 has clearly invaded our lives changing our life style and behaviour – hopefully for only the next few months – we wish to share with you a few thoughts.

In these challenging times, we, at Rock Paper Scissors Events, are leaning on our core values, Commitment, Professionalism, Teamwork and Respect, which have been our beacon since our inception almost ten years ago and have been the key ingredients in helping you building lifetime memories.

Undoubtedly, everyone’s utmost concern must be the personal health and safety of our families, employees, friends and ourselves. However, we are committed to continue guiding you to one of the best days of your life along with our esteemed partners and associates.

There is no single formula for doing this; however, we have already aligned our methodology to the new conditions.

Two things we know about crisis from our experience, they are all different, and they all end.

 We are firm believers that love prevails and we will do everything in our power to keep working for love. #keepworkingforlove #keepworkingforlife

And remember: We are all in this together.

Love and virtual hugs,
Helena, Paraskevi and the Rock Paper Scissors Team

Valentine’s Day

We are enjoying seeing so many love stories living their dream wedding in Greece. That’s the beauty of destination wedding planners, we meet the best love stories on earth.

We love our job, great coffee, desserts and everything in the between. Meaning? We love celebrations and parties!

This week we are excited for preparing our new weddings in the Greek Islands. So we decided to have a girl’s coffee break in one of the most beautiful spots in Athens, Ellyz Cafe. It so Valentine’s and we adore it. Can we keep these flower wall forever?

We love pretty cocktails and garnishes! We love strawberries, kisses and everything that reminds us of a good party filled with LOVE! ?

We are so blessed to live and work in Greece. It’s not only one of the top wedding destinations in the world but it has also amazing people and excellent places to enjoy life.

It’s All About Love

Believe in the power of love because it makes the world go round! Love is to be celebrated every day!

When we first met Annie and Ben in our offices, our feelings became clear that we should design an unconventional wedding. Annie is a surgeon and Ben is an owner of a tour agency in the French Alps, so they are both busy with their professions and they entrusted us to create for them something unique, traditionally Greek that reflected both personalities.

Annie and Ben had an orthodox ceremony at the venue’s chapel, and since this, a well known picturesque chapel we went overboard by creating a big asymmetrical garland. After the guests enjoyed their fresh lemonade and welcome drinks and the long olive oil station we have prepared.

The dinner that followed consisted of mercury vases and nude colored roses and greenery such as eucalyptus. The wind was our ally so the grey candles managed to be lit and created a unique ambiance during dinner along with the hanging string lights. A traditional candy bar with the wish book was also on the dance floor with Greek traditional sweets and dragees.

 

Words from our Bride

We met at Ben’s brother’s wedding. Ben was the Bestman and I was the best friend of the bride. Our wedding was held in the amazing Island Art & Taste, in the Athenian Riviera.

We knew it was the perfect location for our big day the moment we set our foot there. It was the best location in Athens with views of the sea and beautiful gardens. We wanted a relatively peaceful area, where our guests who were coming from the UK could also enjoy the beaches and have quick and easy access to the sights of Athens.

And although we had the usual bride & groom challenges to handle, the overall wedding experience was spectacular. Our wedding theme had all the design elements we wished for our Greek Summer Wedding.

The highlight of our big day was the free bar! Well, and the Olive Bar. The foreigners absolutely loved it. The DJ was also amazing. We still talk about the fireworks. It was a surprise from my father and it was the cherry on the cake of a beautiful evening. It helped that they were timed perfectly.

The only thing I would change would be the wedding video. We both regretted our decision to skip the videographer. I wish we had a video of our wedding day!

Love Makes The World Go Round

Love is to be celebrated!

Our agency strongly feels that love should know no boundaries and that needs to be celebrated in every form. Hence, when Karen and Isabel asked us if we would feel comfortable to organized their wedding there were no second thoughts! It was an absolute yes!

And even though this was our first time having to deal with the requests and vision of two brides in a wedding, this was a wedding we absolutely adored. And the reason is that we had this amazing opportunity to witness a deep love, with a rough enthusiasm, surrounded by their loved ones in a unique and raw place like Crete island where the feelings and surroundings are still authentic. Exactly as love should always be, authentic.

 

Words from our brides

We met in 2003 when we were 15 at an acting summer program and started dating when we were 27 in 2015! A meet up brunch between old friends became a wedding in Crete a few years later. In 2016, Isabel took Karen back to Princeton (where the summer program had taken place) and proposed in front of their old dorm room.

We got married in Agreco Farms in Crete. We decided after a few other ideas fell through and Agreco was suggested to us by RPS. Once we saw it everything fell into place as the perfect venue!

The only challenge we faced, being two brides with two opinionated moms made for extra input than usual, probably. But it all ended up fine. The biggest challenge was the time difference for planning, but even that ended up fine in the end.

We wanted something dreamy but of the earth and with many elemental touches for our wedding’s style. We wanted the natural beauty of an old farm in the hills overlooking the Aegean Sea to speak for itself. The décor and details embodied and embellished that beautiful space, with a few touches to anchor it stylistically and keep it slightly modern (ie; slate grey chargers and gold silverware).

Best decision: to get married to each other in Greece! Second best: working with RPS! Most memorable moment: when Isabel cut off the officiant to say her I Do’s early by mistake because she was so excited to say them!

Advice: be thorough, communicate often, stay organized! No regrets. “

Love Makes the World Go Round

It’s only love that you are feeling!

Pick Athens if you want to have an unforgettable Garden Inspired Wedding in Greece. After you see this wedding you will agree with us. Athens is one of the best wedding destinations in the world!

When the couple decided to get married, Athens was their first choice for their wedding day. They both love open garden weddings and Greece, so it was only natural to tie the knot in the most beautiful venue in Athens, Island Art & Taste.

We were thrilled to bits with their vision for their wedding. Having the opportunity to design and plan an elegant wedding for such a stylish bride was a blessing. With many personal touches, every single detail was carefully picked to agree with the couple’s vibes and personality. From the wedding invitation suite, wedding cake, flower arrangement, wedding reception styling, up to all the little details that transformed their wedding ceremony into an exceptional celebration of love!

The fireworks at the wedding party were spectacular. Beyond the delicious menu and plenty of drinks, the stunning Island Art & Taste views were more than amazing. Guests couldn’t get enough of the landscape and the warm Aegean Sea view. Lots of inspiration came from the love for blooming flowers that were part of the wedding decorations.

The ceremony took place at Island Art & Taste overlooking the Aegean Sea, and the couple exchanged personal vows in front of their friends & families.

Can you think of a more magical wedding? We definitely loved every single moment!

Love Makes the World Go Round

We Believe in Love!

We love weddings and we are devoted to creating unforgettable moments!

Greece is the perfect choice to organize your wedding and have the time of your life. Athens and all the Greek Islands are magical wedding locations all year long. When you find yourself next to the Aegean Sea, everything seems like a fairy tale. Even if we start to count our blessings here in Greece, we will need 10 lives to include all… Shall we start with the romantic whitewashed chapels surrounded by gorgeous sandy beaches? Popup the question and Rock Paper Scissors team will plan your dream destination wedding in Greece.

We are the creative agency that will design and produce the wedding of your dreams right from scratch. Say “Yes I do” and we’ll do all the rest… and that’s a promise! Feel free to send us a message at our contact page.

Bridal Beauty Tips

Katerina Theocharis shared her golden list of Bridal Beauty Dos and Don’ts for all the brides to be. We are thrilled for having her valuable words of wisdom on our blog. We love our brides & grooms and we care for their wedding look, too!

Katerina said: “You have picked the dress of your dreams, you have arranged every little but significant detail of your wedding… You want everything to be perfect! Today, I am going to elaborate on some important do’s and don’ts of your bridal beauty, so you avoid wedding beauty disasters and rock that iconic look you were dreaming of!”

Top Bridal Beauty Tips Every Bride Should Know

Bridal Beauty DOs

Visit your beautician so she/he can customize the perfect face treatments and skincare products tailored for your own special needs. A few months before the wedding is the right time for facials and chemical peels. If – worse case scenario – something goes wrong, you have time to restore it!

Don’t change your beauty regime completely 3 month before the wedding. It’s not the right time for experimenting! You don’t want to have a risk of breaking out before the big day, do you?

Grow your eyebrows and get in touch with a brow specialist to create the ideal brow shape for you. You should try for a new shape at least 4 months before the wedding.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle, drink plenty of water, consume more fruits and vegetables so you stay hydrated and healthy. Bridal beauty needs that!

Exfoliate your skin and do regularly face masks, so you maintain a hydrated and healthy looking skin. But, don’t overdo it. You don’t want to risk a break out!

If you suffer from dark circles and puffy eyes, you can try cold slices of cucumber for 15’ every night. Cucumber hydrates the area and the cool temperature increases blood microcirculation and helps the eyes look more relaxed.

Apply sunscreen every day to avoid any discoloration or hyper-pigmentation on your skin. There are many non-comedogenic sunscreens in the market to stay out of the way of any unneeded break-outs!

Bridal Beauty DON’Ts

If you and your make-up artist have agreed to put artificial eyelashes on the wedding, avoid doing permanent lash lift or putting semi-permanent lash extensions. Lash lift creates a shape on your lashes that makes the artificial lashes look odd and it is recommended not to use artificial lashes on lash extensions.

Don’t stress too much. Try to rest, do things that help you feel relaxed and happy. Stress is not a good advisor and affects your bridal beauty!

Don’t overdo it with suntanning or solarium. UV rays dehydrate the skin and too-much tanning won’t result to that classy bride you where dreaming of!

Don’t eat too much salt the week before the wedding. Since sodium holds 50 times its weight in water, cutting back can help you feel way less bloated the week of your wedding.

Christmas Spirit

Athens is one of the top European choices to get into the Christmas Spirit from the middle of November. The festive vibes are all over the city and most people are attending countless Christmas celebrations, family events and corporate parties. Even now that we are counting days before Christmas Eve there are so many galas, winter weddings and social events to attend that is quite difficult to squezze everything into the calendar.  Are you ready for the holidays? Ho Ho Ho!

Raise your glasses, cheers for being so much into the Christmas Spirit. We are ready for all the Christmas carols, desserts and parties. Wishing you Merry & Bright Christmas!

 

Edgy Xmas Party  Downtown Athens

Organizing the Xmas party for one of the leading companies in our country was definitely a huge challenge. Management’s anthropocentric attitude gave us the idea for the “OPAP’s bright and shiny stars” concept. Employees had the chance to put their own star on their wall of fame, meet and greet on the photobooth and of course have some fun listening to the music of the Greek singer Stelios Rokkos and enjoy the drum show. It was definately a night to remember.

Christmas Candyland

Christmas are about desserts too, and we could not help it but prepare a kids corporate party at Athenaeum InterContinental Athens, full of candies and small treats! Kids made cupcakes, prepared their xmas ornaments and had a lot of fun climbing up our candy tower and going around Candyland’ s places with the little train. Of course everyone got to enjoy the candy floss and chocolate fountain and the huge dessert table prepared for all. It was definitely a Sweet & Merry Christmas for everyone!

Anybody can launch an event… or so they say.

Because only our level of expertise, experience and excellent project management can ensure that your dream scenario has exactly the “look and feel” that you wanted, saving you precious time and money.

We are here for those who have limited time, who are not willing to stress over finding a fresh and creative idea for their event. We are here for those who wish to have the party of their dreams and enjoy it to the full!

Let us iron out all the little details, let us take care of business!

We will be there from the start – the creative process behind selecting the right concept, the time planning and the correct combination from our portfolio of partners – until the very day, when we will ensure that everything goes according to plan. Our services are not a luxury, especially considering a social event like your marriage or the baptism of your child.

From our very first meeting, rest assured that the value of our services will be obvious.

See for yourselves!

Luxury Wedding Planners in Greece

Why Us?

Especially on the subject of a wedding, a commonly expressed doubt is: “why do I really need a wedding planner?” It is a simple question and it can be answered with a simple…question. Each wedding is a once in a lifetime event and therefore an extremely important occasion, so why distract yourself from enjoying it, by trying to do it all by yourself?

Yes, you can hire professionals to take care of the photos and the flowers, the invitations and the decorations, the catering and so on, but what about a professional who will help you with the organization and coordination of all those together?

 

The Truth about Wedding Planning

Wedding planning is a full-time 8 hour job and it has been calculated that at least 200 to 250 man-hours go into each one in total. This means a lot of weekends and free time off your weekday’s personal time! A bride-to-be will have to spend at least 11 hours a week just to try and organize everything for the big day! That is half a day, each week, for weeks on end! Trusting us, allows you to cut out the hard work and just enjoy the process!

We will be there not only as a helping hand with the organization and coordination but will relieve you from this time-chase to get right even the minimal detail.

Many believe that the cost of a wedding planner can be prohibitory. Far from it, contacting an experienced professional is the only surefire way to remain on budget, for whichever kind of business. A wedding is no different. We will use our portfolio of contacts, our wealth of experience and advise you, help you negotiate better deals and treat your budget as if our own, to ensure that you not only enjoy a beautiful occasion, but also avoid overspending. We ensure you will get full value for each one of your euro!

Fact: 80% of our customers do not live in Greece.

So we can understand the stress and anxiety for you of organizing a destination wedding. We are there for you through all means (Fb, viber, whatsapp, skype,  you name it) so to ensure that you can reach us within 24 hours and always feel of course that you are in the experts’ hands.

You have spent months putting it all together and we will be the watchful eye to ensure all goes smoothly when you will be busy at the altar.

Unique Design is Everything

As you can see in this Elegant Greek Folk Wedding in Antiparos, design and style go hand by hand, into all small details of your special day. The bride 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. They also wanted to make a holiday out of it for their guests travelling all the way and what can be better than a Greek-centered theme? They had a handful of surprises for their guests and wanted to give them a hint of what lays ahead for their wedding celebrations.

Fresh fruits and herbs, Greek traditional favors and a wedding reception full of Greek colors & tastes was waiting all friends and family members. And everyone had allready got into the mood thanks to all the design of the printed stationary of the wedding. Don’t you agree?

Natural, elegant with elements of naivety and a little bit influenced of the Greek folk tradition were some of the characteristics that made this wedding styling so unique. The flowers were all white and green with island herbs and foliage mixed in and the dinnerware was blue and white. Greek elements included the traditional Greek folk band procession as the bridal entrance and Tamata favors (a religious votive offering depicting hearts and Greek wedding crowns which can be used to pray for the happy couple or as pray for yourself for luck in love). You can see that once you feel sure about your wedding suite then you can have all sorts of adaptations afterwards in menus, seating cards, welcome signs and so on and so forth…

Flowers are a safe bet!

If you’re are having a Spring wedding, let flowers inspire you! If you have a preferred flower or a deep love for foliage, then go with this as your theme. Have a look at this Colorful Spring Wedding  and get a fresh idea for your wedding invitations & printables. As you can see in this blooming wedding at Island art and Taste in the Athenian Riviera, the flowers guided us throughout the wedding invitations suite and we even created a small guide with explanations of different flowers and their meanings.

Of course you can always send invitation via webmail but we suggest you leave this only for your save the date. After all, a well-designed invitation is always a keepsake to those who truly love you and a loving memory of one of the most important day of your lives, your wedding day.

Allow your wedding planner and graphic designer to work on a unique wedding theme for you and give your guests the surprise of something out of the ordinary with your personalized wedding printables & invitations.

Dare to be bold!

Just say yes to that idea you can not get out of your head. Dare to be bold! It’s your wedding and you can try anything you want. We encourage our couples to trust their dreams. Together we go beyond classic and dare to try edgy concepts. It’s in our nature to fall in love immediately with wedding themes that creativity faces no limitations.

This Wedding in Andros had a rustic & elegant theme that left everyone speechless. Starting from the breathtaking view both to the sea and to green covered mountains. The wedding theme followed the natural colors of the stone built house and greenery that surrounded it. Tones of orange and touch of wood along with ceramics kept the rustic feeling but with a very modern touch due to the vellum we used to wrap the invitations.

Decoration of course later matched the invitation design and most of the times if done the right way, it can inspire the decoration and design of your wedding. As flowers were natural in the background, we also used wooden signs, since it was needless to repeat the flower pattern, for road and welcome signs, as well as table numbers.

Why Wedding Invitations are a must-have

The short answer is that the wedding invitations make it official and set the tone for the entire event.

The day your guests receive your invitation in the mail, they start to envision the wedding day. They start to make plans and prepare – from their side – for your big day. So make it as personal and special as your wedding. A rock wedding should have a rock invitation suite but a romantic wedding should go for a classic invitation.

If you are planning a destination wedding with a weekend filled with activities, brunches, or cocktail parties with your guests, the invitation will be their map & guide for the entire weekend. That envelop should include all the important information about: guidelines to book travels, how to pack accordingly, what activities are in the schedule,  or/and any kind of sensitive information regarding the wedding etiquette. In some cases, the couple may wish to exclude social media sharing from their event or may want to stress out which #hashtags to use in your posts.

With simple words, invitations reflect the values & vibes of the couple!

The wedding invitation should reflect who you are as a new soon-to-be-married-couple. In my professional opinion, digital invitations lack of character and look less official. On the other hand, printed wedding invitations declare the significance of the event.  That been said, working with a professional stationery designer it’s a must-do process for a successful wedding experience.

Pros know how to spread your message the right way. They can assist you pick the perfect design, style, words, colors and even make all ends meet just in the right price. Only pros will help you get the best result without breaking the bank.

And at the end of the day, invitations are kept as a loving memoir from your wedding. For many this is a big thing! Especially for family members or dear friends that can not attend your wedding ceremony. Invitations are an essential part of wedding planning because they gather everything written on paper and keep the event’s flow running smoothly.

To wrap it up, when planning costs are on the table, wedding invitations should be part of the original budget. A wedding starts when guests get your invitation. There is nothing like that moment where the big news is announced, printed, professionally designed, and beautifully packed into a fine envelope with a calligraphy address bar.
