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.

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.

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.

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.
