Getting married is a remarkable experience in anyone’s life, regardless of that person’s nationality. It is a day of utmost importance to any couple, and that is why the celebration must be regarded and approached in the same way.
In the past, couples found it more difficult to understand and appreciate the amount of work wedding planners had to undertake, as they did not know how difficult this profession is and all the issues we have to deal with. Nowadays, given the social importance of a wedding and the extensive information posted on the internet and social networks about these celebrations, the bride and groom respect and value the scheduling and development of a wedding, as they are aware that the planning (though it may seem a simple, beautiful and even glamorous job) is actually a very complex task.
Planning a wedding requires training, a comprehensive knowledge of the industry and tremendous dedication so that everything turns out perfectly; only a professional with years of experience in this field can ensure the best result. Relying on a person who knows how to plan, coordinate and manage every aspect and detail of a wedding, but also is in charge of designing and styling it to your needs, advising you at all times, is priceless!
Every couple is different – they have their own taste, preferences and values; that is an indisputable fact. And that’s the reason why there all sorts of wedding styles, and consequently, different types of wedding planners. Meeting the right professional for you will smooth the process and grant you a perfect wedding day, leaving you just this task, the most important one: be happy and enjoy your day to the full.
An increase of non-professional wedding planners along with a lack of understanding by some clients regarding the meticulous work wedding planners face, still make people unsure whether it is necessary to hire these professionals. If you belong to the group of people who still question the benefits of hiring a wedding planner, I urge you to go through all the reasons why you should do so.

1)First of all, wedding planners are problem solvers
Planning a wedding is a continuous process of managing and solving all sorts of problems. But your wedding planner will not only sort out all issues, but also foresee and prevent them.

First of all, the wedding planner should help you find out the kind of wedding you want and then will create it and bring it to life. How? Getting to know you, capturing your vision, providing inspirational ideas, making sure everything is in perfect harmony and beautifully styled, creating a theme, to put together every piece to create a consistent and evocative decor.

Why a Destination Wedding-Why Crete

Why a Destination Wedding? Why Crete?
A destination wedding in Crete can involve just the two of you; a select handful of family and friends; or enough guests to constitute a bona fide week-end-long family reunion or vacation. Here some practical and personal reasons why to Wed away.

1. They’re Virtually Stress-Free
Watch any classic wedding movie and you’ll soon understand why destination weddings are so popular. They’re almost guaranteed to be simpler (and faster!) to plan than a traditional wedding and reception for this main reason:
Most registered wedding planning companies in Crete have full-time coordinators and staff who are familiar with legal requirements for a civil wedding and offer wedding packages that take care of all your ceremony essentials (photographer, cake, officiant and so on.). You basically step off the plane, stand, smile, sign the papers; and they’ll take care of the rest.

2. No Family Drama
The second reason destination weddings rule? No scene-stealing family drama. For Chelsea & JB the initial family strategy session began to foreshadow a very large get-together of extended family and business associates. Predictably, each set of parents had their own ideas. One set thought the wedding should be held in Washington because most guests were from the area. Another set had a problem with the expense of a big-city wedding. Chelsea says that she and JB never stopped feeling that the event is, first and foremost, about the two people getting married and decided on having a destination wedding in Crete and curbing the drama.

3. They’re Cost Effective
The affordability of a destination wedding has many couples speeding off to the airport faster than you can say “I do.” For instance, a couple can fly to an all-inclusive resort in Crete, get married, and stay for a deluxe week long honeymoon for a few thousand Euro’s, including lodging, meals, drinks and airfare. Compare that with a 150-guest wedding costing about $50,000—which can easily skyrocket to more than $130,000 in big cities. (Not to mention a few extra thousand for a honeymoon.)

4. You Call The Shots
While traditional weddings hold meaning for many couples, linking them to the traditions of their ancestors and culture, others want the experience to be more unique, with a ceremony and location that reflect their true colours. Crete has to offer exactly that!
Οur island, being rich in natural beauties can offer the perfect backdrop. Either it being a sandy beach over looking crystal blue waters, the beauty of natural olive groves venue, a rustic winery, a traditional farm house or a modern estate. Your choices are endless and. It’s completely up to you.

5. They’re Simply Perfect for Second Marriages
Been-there-done-that couples who are getting married for the second or third time choose destination weddings because they’re simple and private. If either person or both have done the large-scale wedding before and want something quieter or less expensive this time around, it’s a great way to go. Hint: If you have kids, get married at a family-friendly, all-inclusive resort or large villa to help your new families do some solid bonding.

6. They’re a Once-in-a-Lifetime Reunion Opportunity
At a traditional wedding, you’re on the run, meeting and greeting. Destination weddings are on vacation time. Your wedding planner has taken responsibility of all the details so by the time your wedding rolls around, you’ve had two to three days of fun with family and friends. How often do you have the opportunity to spend no-rush quality playtime with dear, far-flung friends? This is your chance!
