A wedding in Kalymnos

by Christina & George

After planning and organizing our own wedding in Kalymnos, we wanted to pass on our knowledge and inspiration. We hope that you find the information needed in the blog posts below, and if not – then don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our own wedding planning process

Planning a wedding is a big thing and it requires a lot of time and research. We (mostly Christina) spent many hours looking at Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration. Inspiration about the dress, the shoes, the suit, the decoration of the church and venue, the hair and makeup, Greek wedding traditions, the color theme of the wedding and so much more. The list was long, and it was quite a time-consuming hobby for a long time.

One of the hard things was researching and finding the right people, business and locations for all these things. We didn’t know who to talk to and where to go, but we received a lot of help from our Greek family living in Kalymnos. Despite receiving a helping hand, we still had to travel to Kalymnos the year before the wedding to sort a lot of things out ourselves. It was crucial to talk to people face to face and see the churches and party venues with our own eyes. That was the only way, our big fat Kalymnian wedding could be just how we imagined it to be!
