If you are planning a wedding in Greece, then surely one of the first questions to come in your mind is the following: How much would a wedding in Greece cost?
Of course, you should not expect to hear from us an exact cost because, as you understand, every wedding is different and its cost depends on what the couple wishes for this special moment.
However, we are going to give you some rough cost estimations so that you are aware of the average costs of wedding services in Greece.
There are various kind of wedding venues in Greece. Some are independent, while other venues are found within the premises of a hotel or villa complex. Some accommodations charge a venue fee for the wedding, which may depend on the number of guests. In Heliades Villas, there is no charge for the wedding venue and we charge only the villa rentals for the couple’s and the guests’ accommodation.
The wedding dinner cost also depends on the number of guests and usually there is a cost per person. Most frequently, this cost may include house wine, beers and soft drinks, however this should be clarified with the wedding planner or coordinator. The cost for wedding dinners usually start from 50€ per person. If you wish for an open bar, the cost is extra and may start from 30€ per person. If you also wish for a welcome drink or late night food, there is also extra cost.
The cost for the flower and venue decoration depends on the kind of flowers that you wish for the ceremony and the wedding dinner. Expensive flowers, such as tulips, orchids or peonies, will raise the cost of the wedding decoration in Greece. If you choose local flowers and herbs, such as roses, lavender, olive branches or sage, the flower decoration cost will be kept in lower levels. In any case, flower decoration cost may start from 500€ and increase depending on flowers and decoration items.
