Many brides dream of getting married in front of the gorgeous blue waters of Santorini, Greece. What can we say? It’s amazingly beautiful! This highly sought-after location is often associated with tones of vibrant blue and shades of white. Crisp, clean, and incredibly romantic. But what about taking it up a notch?
The planners behind Tie the Knot Santorini imagined something new and fresh. We’re talking bursting florals by Betty Flowers Santorini, mirrored aisles, and big color! Photographer Kimon Kaketsis channeled all of the classic beauty and appeal of El Viento Santorini into epic photos with a dreamy blue tint. Sound like something you’re interested in? Let’s get into it!
Love in the Off-Season
While often flocked to in the summer months, Greece is just as beautiful and far less crowded in the wintertime. If you’re thinking about hosting your wedding in Santorini, let this be your sign to consider traveling in the off-season!
Baby’s breath is one of many emerging wedding trends for 2022 and we have to admit, we’re huge fans. While you’re at it, why not blend this trend with a colorful ombré moment as well?
Since we’re in Santorini, can the stunning water count as “something blue”? We think so! If you’re looking to amp up your heel game, try red instead! It’ll be totally unexpected, and totally chic.
Okay – THIS is the main event, people! Your wedding ceremony is already so special. It’s the part of your wedding that you finally get married to the love of your life! So when you’re deciding on your decor, going big should always be on the table.
Santorini is one of the best locations in the world to have this mirrored aisle to walk towards your future spouse. That reflection of the sea on your wedding day is simply unbeatable.
Flowers, flowers, and more flowers. One of our favorite aspects of these arrangements is the drastically different styles between the arch and the aisle. While both are bursting with baby’s breath, each has its own distinct characteristics and color scheme!
When you’re standing in front of the love of your life surrounded by blue water, gorgeous flowers, and your favorite people in the world, all of your worries and fears leading up to this moment will melt away.
Something we always preach about is being consistent in your theme all throughout your wedding. That includes the attire! This glimmering gown from Made Bride by Antonea is a Santorini dream. Between the sheer sleeves to the glittery details and the flow of the body – it’s simply perfect. For the groom, something casual and cool is the perfect counterpart to the glammed-up bride.
Grecian sunsets are a sight to behold, but so are the evenings themselves! Your wedding ceremony space can easily be transformed into a dreamy reception dinner for two.
Tiny details are the backbone of an elevated elopement. Sheer fabric with sparkling details leaves you with a well-established canvas for painting the reception table of your dreams. You can almost never go wrong with gold flatware, and crystal plates leave even more room for personalized expression.
Top off your integration of red details with an epic ombré wedding cake!
And wait until you see this stunning film by Kimon!
We hope you’re feeling extra inspired by this destination elopement. As always, happy wedding planning!
