Best wines for your wedding in Santorini

How to Pick the Best Wines for Your Wedding in Santorini without Being an Expert

Choosing the wine for the wedding is just as important as choosing the menu for it, especially so when your wedding takes place in a world known wine region such as Santorini. The question is obvious: How to choose the best wine without being an oenology expert, especially when you want to satisfy a large number of guests?

If you’re getting married in Santorini then you’ll most likely be receiving help by Marry Me in Greece with the planning and setup. Marry Me in Greece is one of the best services in the country when it comes to marriage packages and Santorini is the island where they’ve done the most incredible weddings! However, despite arranging almost everything for you, it’s still in your hand to select the wines that will best suit the occasion.
When the bride and groom pick a package that includes a menu and wines for the wedding, it has always given me the feeling that the least attention is usually paid to wines.
The first thing to remember is that you cannot become an expert, but can make the least amount of mistakes possible when choosing a wine. Not even among the greatest lovers of Santorini’s wines is the choice of wine easy. When you have to combine it with a menu that works for a large number of guests it’s not an easy task. As you want everything to be perfect, just like your dress, you wish your selection of wine to be the right one.
Among all the choices there are some amazing wines so called classics that have been used in weddings for decades, marriage after marriage and rarely fail to impress. The most important thing is to avoid the risk and focus on winning wines that come from well-known wineries and brands. The perfect pairing, the combination of food and wine, is essential but it's important to not get too complicated. Succeeding with the dishes served can be more difficult so perhaps the most important thing is to first pick the most convenient menu that works with your tastes and once you are sure of what dishes you are going to serve, to choose the wine pairing.
When it comes to quantity level, it is best to count at least half a bottle per person, never less. The wine cannot be missed or finished in the middle of celebration. As for the types of wines the red I would prefer a Santorini local red wine, not too potent or light. It would also be a good idea to not go for something too fruity.
Sometimes it’s true that if the couple who is getting married lives in a wine producing region, there is usually more desire to offer wines from that region and this is especially true in Santorini. However, this should only be done if there are well known wines from the region. Luckily Santorini has several well-known wines across the world such as Vin Santo which is a Tuscan sweet wine.

When it comes to choosing the bulk of drinks, it is also worth noting some kind of wine or non-alcoholic beverage is in line as some people do not drink wine.  Equally, it’s best to always keep in mind to try the selection and ensure that above all, the two members of the pair love it. The wine chosen should not by liked just by him or her. You have to find a meeting point being happy with your choice together.

The Civil wedding ceremony took place in the idyllic Venetsanos winery in Santorini, with 50 guests, overlooking the caldera, seeing everyone there, saying I DO in front of our closest family and friends. We continued with the reception and the wedding party at the same place and we used a catering facility to cover our food needs. All the wine and drinks were from the winery and the quality was excellent. Also the day before we had a wine tasting in the same place with all our family and friends and we enjoyed the sunset
Our wedding theme was  off white, romantic including some Santorini elements
Olympia was our wedding planner from Marryme in Greece and we had long discussion about how we would like to be our wedding . Olympia  designed the  wedding according to my dreams. She helped us organize everything, she put time frames for certain things, that need it to be done and finalized. She suggested the wedding ceremony and  location, all vendors such as florist, photographer, dj, catering  and she ensured that the  wedding day everything went according to the plan, which was sent to us nearly a month ago to be finalized and approved .
I had  two bridesmaids and their dresses were Grecian style in bright light blue  . One of the bride maids wore strapless and the other one shoulder design of the same dress. I picked the colour to go with the blue of Santorini and it’s my favorite color. We also had two groomsmen Charles brother and the best man in dark blue suits.
My wedding dress: . I tried on over 100 dresses. I found it hard to choose, the one I chose was by Pronovias – Barcelona designer. My mum and 2 sisters came shopping with me. Everyone cried when I went for the final fitting. The style of my wedding dress was romantic and I was wearing a simple diamond set of earrings the day of the wedding
The best parts of the wedding were at the time I was walking with my dad towards to my husband now Charles, my father’s  speech and the fireworks
Certain things made our wedding unique, the location which was amazing, our wedding cake, the saxophonist and the fireworks Our wedding cake was Santorini inspired with a small church on top of this .
I wanted my wedding flowers to be simple,  elegant , yet romantic and neutral. For this reason my bouquet was of white roses , the same for the brides maids and lace ribbon. The rest of the flowers were off white and peach color.
Our first dance song was  All of me’ by John Legend
I would advise the future brides to hire a wedding planner as it takes a lot of pressure off you and helps you to have a free hassle wedding day

Dream Hindu destination wedding in Santorini

Nov 2, 2016

Dream Hindu wedding in Santorini

I think every bride will agree with me that this is a dream destination wedding . It had it all, beautiful flowers, amazing wedding cake,boat trip in the caldera, beach party with fireplaces, music, dances and a lot of fun and above all a wonderful couple and a sister in law, which was amazing.

Rita and Ajay is an Indian couple which lives, in the Canary islands. They met through friends. Ajay proposed to Rita in a very traditional way and the length of the engagement was 6 months and their romantic affair ended and at the same time started at the caldera by ending the engagement time and starting a new life.
The ceremony took place in Santorini, at Santo winery with a traditional religious Sikh wedding ceremony. The priest was a woman member of  groom’s  family. Previously a civil ceremony has taken place in Zurich, where,  the bride was staying with family members. The Santorini wedding  ceremony and reception  attended  around 85 guests and took place at Santo winery, which is an mazing location overlooking the caldera. After the Santorini Sikh wedding  ceremony , a traditional , homemade sweet was served and some refreshment  as alcohol is not allowed after the religious ceremony.  Santo,  It was just the scenery the couple was dreaming of bright blue colours, nice weather was to add a special touch to the wedding, as well as the colourful flower decoration design.
The Santorini wedding reception took place the same evening at Santo winery, starting
with cocktail hour, by serving champagne and strawberries under saxophone music. Then everybody welcomed Rita and Ajay and they had the first dance under the sounds of ´All of Me´By John Legend
All were dressed in beautiful dresses and the bride in a traditional Indian dress.Then they moved to the reception area and under the sound of Indian music, they start enjoying Mediterranean food. During the reception, there was a lot of fun  and there was also some Bollywood dance as well as belly dance.

Here are some of the bride’s comments
We have chosen Nikos Gogas as our Santorini wedding photographer and he was a recommendation from our Santorini  wedding planner Olympia from Marryme in Greece. We liked his work and we have seen previous work online, and really liked it; very nice, attentive, and creative.
The theme of  our wedding was off white and baby pink and  Olympia Giannopoulou from Marryme in Greece  was involved in all planning in absolutely everything from location choosing and managing suppliers, to arranging transfers and being available on the days to help !
In regards of my wedding dress,  I knew the designer when I saw her wear a beautiful dress of her own creation at a party we both attended, there fore she  created on for me , and the design was Indian princess with matching earrings, necklace, bangles. My hair and make up was done from Helen Savva, she was , our wedding planner suggestion. Helen d she absolutely created the perfect image that I wanted to have.
My favourite part of the whole wedding was to be with Ajay and our wedding was unique as it took place in a private , idyllic, scenic place , overlooking the caldera, and the colours of the sunset, under the music of the saxophone first and then our music.
We have chosen Nikos Gogas as our Santorini wedding photographer and he was a recommendation from our Santorini  wedding planner Olympia from Marryme in Greece.
Our wedding cake was the same colors as our theme, and it was a 3 tier cake  and part of it was vegetarian for religious purposes.
My advise to other brides is to enjoy the date and hire a wedding planner to do the job for you
In addition to our wedding ceremony and reception we had an amazing  a boat trip on Friday morning  at the caldera with some drinks. Then the evening we had our  Santorini beach party ad a lovely decoration at the beach with fireplaces , romantic lights and wonderful music. My florist Betty has designed a flower dress for my entrance and after taking some photos then I changed into my Greek style blue dress

Overall my wedding was like a dream and I want to thank Olympia , that made my dream wedding to become true in Santorini and also all people participating in this wedding.
