Dont know where to start!

Hi all i have joined this wedding forum for hopfully help and advice off you lovely lot!my self and my husband to be are wanting to get get married in Cyprus 2020 (June hopfully)we have spoken to a few travel agents regarding booking it,but as most of you know you cant book that early due to price changes from year to year. One of my questions is do you book your hoilday and wedding as a package?or do you have to book your wedding then the hoilday separately???The travel agents are much help to be honest 😕and should we book through a travel agent or the hotel directly?

Helppppppp!dont know where to start☹


  • How exciting! We’re getting married close to home so I don’t know all the answers, but is it worth narrowing down to a couple of hotels you like the look of and contacting their wedding coordinator? I’m sure they can advise the best way to approach and put you in touch with any travel agents/planners they work with. Good luck!

  • Thank you Ruth for your help,we was going to get married closer to home but decided it would be much easy to combine the wedding with a big family holiday!i will definitely take your advice and hopully have a wedding booked soon!Good look with all your wedding planning ect..

    Kind regards Kellie 👍

  • Hey Kellie firstly congratulations.  We're getting married next year in Greece, Rhodes, lindos, so think I may be able to help you. Firstly we decided to go direct with a wedding planner out there, main reasons for this is u can contact her directly, she's so quick and good at getting back to me :) I just trip advised best wedding planners in Greece and read a lot of reviews. My wedding planner was £1245 that a for the following.

    Booking of the beach wedding ceremony location of Lindos Memories

    White gazebo dressed with white curtains

    Dressed registrar’s table and unlimited wedding chairs

    Full wedding coordination on your wedding day

    Wedding reception venue coordination & simple decoration

    Wedding photography coordination

    A complimentary bottle of champagne for the bride & groom

    Bottled water at ceremony venue for all guests

    Special, discounted, rates for the hire of our wedding celebration boat

    Bridal transport to the wedding ceremony location with our VW Beetle, as featured on our website

    The organization of any other bespoke services you may require

    All local taxes

    We're getting married on the beach then having a boat trip to our reception....
    Ontop of this you then have to pay flowers, cake, more decorations at reception if you want added things, food package for reception, photographer, dj etc etc.

    The reason I've done it separately away from a hotel package is so my guests aren't reliant to stay at that particular hotel they can stay where ever they like. As long as there for my wedding day. The travel Agents also tell you that you need to be on the island for at least 5/6 prior to getting married, my direct wedding planner said it was 3.

    Ovs it is cheaper doing a whole package in a hotel but it's all about how you want your day to go , so it's entirely up to you.

    We booked our holiday separately. Luckily for me most of my guests have booked the same hotel but some haven't, which is still fine.

    Hope I've helped you a bit and not ran on too much xxxxx Lauren xxxx
