Paphos 2010 Brides To Be!

Hello!



I was just wondering how many other people are planning to get married in Paphos next year?



What date are you getting married and where?



How many bridesmaids are you having?



Colour scheme?



How many guests are you having?



Have you done this through a travel agent or a planner in Cyprus?



We are getting married on 1st September 2010 at Atlantida Beach, we decide on having the ceremony at 4pm as it will be a little bit cooler. We are having the reception at Atlantida Beach Restaurant. I'm having 2 bridesmaids, who are my best friends that I have known for several years.



Out colour scheme is lilac and ivory, as lilac is my favour colour.



We have wroughly about 15 guests coming (when some of then get round to booking!), mainly close family and friends.



We have used Ruth at Prestiage Paphos Weddings, she has been brilliant and very quick at replying since the minute I first enquired.



I cant wait for it to happen, shame I've got over a year to wait, but really need that about of time to save. The only think that is worrying me about this whole wedding is getting my dress there, we are flying with Cypria Air who are based in Cyprus. My dress is quite heavy and would sooner know wroughly what it would cost me to get it there than finding out when I get to the airport. I've tried emailing them but I'm not having any luck. I might ask Ruth if she knows of them or how I can contact them, but feel abit cheeky as it is separate to the wedding if you know what I mean.



I wish all 2010 brides the best of luck and keep in touch!

    Hi Wendy

    Im all booked to get married in the Athena Beach Paphos on the 2nd June 2010.



    We have approx 30 guests coming with most of them staying at the AB.......but a few have opted to stay elsewhere due to individual budgets etc.



    You sound sorted with receptions etc...we havn;t even got that far yet. Can't decide what to do......to be honest not really sure whats availalbe as our wedding package thingy hasn't arrived yet. Ideally we are looking at the hotel but we will see.



    Any recommendations??

    Hi Wendy.



    Im getting married in Paphos in June 2010 at the Athena Beach Hotel.

    We have our son as page boy and our colour scheme is quite neutral. H2b is wearing silver/grey waistcoats. My dress is ivory and we will have nutral colours.



    We have everything booked - wedding, reception, honeymoon and a party back in the uk. I've booked with Olympic weddings through Thomas Cook as we have a friend that works there. Wedding and reception all within the hotel. All our flowers and cake are included in our package.

    So far everything has been good.

    There are 20 of us including 3 of us, everyone has booked into the same hotel which is great.



    I have worries over my dress as its fairly 'fluffy'! But sure it will be fine. Im checking the dimensions of hand luggage with our friend at thomas cook.

    Im looking on ebay for some basic shoes to jazz up with sequins all over, have seen it on here already.

    Want ot make my own cake toppers for a bit of character.



    What things have you done so far?

    Hiya ECShaw



    When we first started looking at receptions there were so many to to choose from it took us ages to decide, the options we had were beachside tavern/restaurant, yacht reception, harbourside tavern, hotel garden reception, hotel reception. We just got prices for the ones we liked the sound of, we really liked the idea of having reception at a harbourside taverna but as we wanted a beach wedding and the area where the ceremony is being held is own by the beach restaurant. So in order for us to have the ceremony there we had to have our reception at the beach restaurant.



    I hope this helps!

    Hi Wendy,



    I'm also a Paphos 2010 bride :\) Getting married on the 2nd July at 3.30pm in Zucchini's gazebo & then having our reception in their restuarant. I'm having 3 bridesmaids & 1 flowergirl, colour scheme is coral (althought turned out more like a pink shade)! & silver. We have invited 40 guests but think that there will be around 30 coming (if they ever get around to booking)!



    We have booked 2 weeks at the Coral Beach Hotel with Olympic but are organising the wedding through Zucchini.

  • Hello everyone,

    We are also staying at the Athena!!



    Our wedding is on the 4th june 2010 at 5pm on the sea star yacht in paphos harbour.

    we are having the wedding and reception on the yacht.

    Think there'll be about 20 coming out but only 2 have booked up to now.

    I am having my 2 sisters as bridesmaids and my niece who'll be 7 as a flower girl.

    Not too sure yet about colours but i did see some fab purple dresses in debenhams the other day.



    I have already got my dress and peter's even got his suit!



    Its funny that lots of us will be at the athena at the same time!

    Hi ladies! Can I join in too, I booked my wedding this week for the 26th of August at Peyia Town hall then on to Vasilias for the reception, I'm soooo excited! LOL, just need to book the holiday part of it now, booked the wedding through Ruth at Paphos prestige and agree that she is god send, she's been faultless so far and so quick to respond. We're hoping for are 25 guests, I've got my niece and sister as adult bridesmaids and my two little nieces as flower girls although one is very little so will probably stay with her mum but wear a matching dress for the photos. I've changed my colour scheme so many times now but made the save the dates today so have to stick to them, I'm having a lovely lagoon blue with a deep pink for flowers. There is lovely terrace covered in bougainvillea where we will be eating so I thought it would work well. I'm aiming for a mama mia style reception with loads of candles and a bit of a relaxed laid back feeling. Lovely hearing what everyone else is doing! x
