WEDDING GUIDE

The Eden Roc team is waiting to help customize your wedding day with a level of attention you simply won't find anywhere else.

Our wedding team knows just how to help you transform your dream wedding into reality; from organisation and paperwork to cuisine and décor, no detail is overlooked.

GETTING STARTED

The following guideline provides valuable information for both your wedding ceremony and reception.

Our coordinator will guide your every step and answer all your thoughts and questions. Please contact us for any further details you may require or simply follow the “request a proposal” link filling in some basic information.

FLOWERS
Our wedding coordinator will help you choose your bouquet, corsages and boutonnieres, church decorations, and table centerpieces or arrange for you to meet directly with a wide selection of local vendors. In any case, you may feel confident that all your floral needs can and will be met.
DECORATIONS
Balloons, lanterns, candles, fireworks and many more unique decorations can be organised depending on where your budget and imagination end…
FAVORS & GIFTS
A small traditional gift or wedding souvenir is always appreciated by guests. Often kept for many years, wedding gifts may keep the memories alive for a lifetime and should be though through carefully.
A common option is a traditional sugared almond in a tulle bag, though you may go for something more original like a hand made rope charm bracelet reflecting on your wedding theme or an elegant key ring for men. Our wedding planer is full of ideas and is looking forward to meet you and suggest the most appropriate options for your family and guests.
PHOTO & VIDEO SHOOTING
The photos and video of your wedding & reception will always remind you of your special day. We cooperate with a selection of photographers with whom we will get you in touch in order for them to demonstrate previous work and suggest idyllic settings for your photographs.
TRANSPORTATION
As we also maintain a sister company, called Traveland (www.traveland.gr) we are able to offer you special prices if you wish for buses to transfer your guests to the ceremony, as well as organize a wedding car, horse-carriage or even a boat to take you to the church or town hall.
ENTERTAINMENT – MUSIC
Depending on the style you prefer we can organise a live Greek band with folklore ballet, live piano or guitar music, a Disk Jockey, or an I-pod / mp3 player with your favourite music pre-selected.
The Hotels Animation Team may entertain your younger guests during the reception, should you wish.
INVITATIONS, ANNOUNCEMENTS, THANK YOU CARDS
Deciding how large you would like your wedding to be, who you would like to invite, how you would like to seat your guests at the reception, how the invitations & announcements will look like are often stressful and time-consuming issues which are always good to get out the way as early as possible. Our experience in these questions will be a valuable asset to you and will make your decisions much easier.
BEAUTY TREATMENTS
On such a special day it is certain that you will want to look and feel at your very best. To help remove stress and ensure you look beautiful and relaxed, we co-operate with beauticians who may offer the following services in your hotel room:
  • • Make-up
  • • Hair
  • • Manicure-pedicure
  • • Waxing
  • • Massage
WEDDING CAKE
The wedding cake is always the centerpiece of a wedding reception and you can carry your wedding day style all the way through to the dessert. Picture, for example, a floral cake when having the reception in the garden, or sea shell & starfish decorated wedding cake while having the reception on one of our sea front venues.
DOCUMENTATION

For a Religious Ceremony:

Certain paper work is needed prior to the church ceremony for an Orthodox wedding by a Greek priest. Essential documents include Proof of religion of the couple, Birth Certificates, Decree Absolute and Deed Poll Certificate, as well as an interpreter or witnesses. Our coordinator is able to assist you with all necessary paperwork.

Ceremony takes place in an Orthodox church by a priest. There are many beautiful churches on the island to choose from. Popular choices are:

  • • Medieval City, st Fanourios

  • • Church of ‘’Profitis Ilias’’, overlooking the sea and at a very short distance from the Eden Roc
