Useful information for a perfect wedding in Santorini
Here’s what you need to know about weddings in Santorini. Divine Weddings in Santorini is here to answer your questions and help you to choose the best wedding package in Santorini for you.
▶ Do you organize vow renewals in Santorini?
Yes, you can see our packages here: Vow Renewals in Santorini
Please contact us for further information and we will be more than happy to help!
We would like to let you know that for a vow renewal, no documents need to be prepared so the process is easier, just a copy of your passports. The ceremony is the same as the civil ceremony but you will not receive an official marriage certificate.
▶ How long do we have to be on the island prior to the wedding?
We recommend to our couples to be in the island at least two days prior to the wedding, as we like to have a pre wedding meeting to discuss all the wedding details. Also it is necessary for a civil wedding in Santorini
, to have the couples one working day after the wedding so we can arrange the final signature in the Town Hall.
▶ Does the wedding package price includes the coordination fee for our guests and the required services?
Most of the pre-defined wedding packages
on our website (unless otherwise indicated) are customized for the couple only so do not include services for guests. If you have guests please inform us so we can be sure to send you our offer including the coordination fee based on the number of guests that will attend.
▶ Can I rent a Wedding Dress in Santorini?
No, unfortunately the market in Santorini is very limited and we do not cooperate with anyone in the island that provides this service. We advise our couples to bring their own wedding dress and wedding suite for their wedding in Santorini
▶ Can we get married on the same day of our arrival in Santorini?
We only provide this service for the couples that arrive in the island via a cruise boat (see our Santorini wedding packages
section). Otherwise we recommend our couples to be in the island two days prior to the wedding date.
▶ Do you arrange weddings in other parts of Greece?
No, for the moment we can only arrange for your wedding here in beautiful Santorini, as this is where our office and expertise is based.
▶ What is the cancellation policy if we cancel the reservation, will we get our money back?
Please see below our standard cancellation fees:
400 euro (non refundable) to secure your wedding date and time and start planning your wedding. The deposit can be paid by credit card through our secure server.
For more information please contact us.
▶ What is the best time to perform the wedding ceremony in Santorini?
Usually we advise our couples to book their wedding one hour before the sunset, so they will enjoy a beautiful sunset photo shooting after the ceremony. Sometimes, this will depend on the availability of the venue and the available time slots of the registrar. Moreover, we also recommended our couples not to have the ceremony in the middle of the day, as the weather in Santorini during June, July and August comes too hot.
▶ We don’t have two witnesses for the ceremony.
We will be more than happy to be your witnesses on the day, so don’t worry!
▶ When do we receive our photos?
This is based on the delivery policy of your chosen photographer.
▶ Where can we have our wedding reception in Santorini?
Santorini has unique wedding reception venues. Depending on the number of guests we will propose several wedding venues in Santorini
to choose from.
▶ Do you arrange religious weddings in Santorini?
▶ Is our civil marriage in Santorini legal worldwide?
Yes, the marriage certificate is a legal document issued by the Greek Government and accepted internationally. You will use the certificate to register your marriage back home when you have received it.
▶ How do we obtain the marriage certificate?
After the ceremony, we will arrange a meeting at the Town Hall so we can proceed with the final signatures.
The procedure of getting your marriage certificate with the Apostille Stamp usually takes 3-4 weeks. As soon as we receive it back from the Town Hall we will send it to you by post.
