We recommend you be here at least two days prior to the wedding in Santorini, as we like to sit down with couples beforehand to ensure that everything planned for the day itself is correct, and at least one working date after the wedding in order to make your final signature in the Town Hall.

Does the wedding package price include our guests?

Most of the pre defined 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 that we can be sure to send you our offer based on the number of guests that will attend.

Can I rent a Wedding Dress in Santorini?

Yes, it is possible to rent a wedding dress from the island for your wedding, however it is very good for you to know that this is a very expensive option and so if you can it is better to bring your dress with you to the island. Also it is good for you to know that you may need to have the rented dress altered to fit you, so you would need to be on the island for a few days before the wedding.
