Hi to all you future and past brides of Santorini, I am looking for a little advice. Myself and my partner have been looking at Santorini as a wedding destination for so long, and after many months of googling we have decided on Santo Winery for the ceremony and Pygros Restaurant for the reception. There will be 40 there altogether, including 8 kids aged between 2 and 10. My questions are:
Which wedding planner did you go with? i'v been in contact with a few local santorini planners, ionian weddings and perfect weddings abroad. They all differ so much in price that i can't understand it. Do you pay less and get cheap service or do you pay the most and get what you pay for?
Would i need to book transport for guests from the ceremony to the reception? They say its about a 15 min walk, i can't imagine 40 people wandering down the road for 15 mins in wedding outfits, but planners have said not many people book transport??
Where is good to stay for kids? Im thinking the seaside town of Kamari would be best?? Do hotels in Santorini do evening entertainment?
Did you have a DJ or what entertainment would be good? Cant decide whether to have a DJ or have Greek musicians and then just use iPod for music afterwards.
How much did you pay for everything, including hair make up food drinks etc?
What time did you get married? I like the idea of 3pm but would this be too hot?
Thanks in advance for reading my post and hopefully being able to share your stories. xxxx
