If you’re thinking of having your wedding in Santorini, then physically and mentally prepare yourself. Sure, there’s plenty of wedding planners on the island that could take a chunk of the hard work from you, but there’s still so much left to do. A wedding on the island is going to be memorable, for sure. But don’t expect it to be easy.

Planning a wedding in Santorini

If you think that the stress of a real wedding is too much for you, then try going for a more symbolic ceremony on the island. Get married in your home country and take care of all the legalities there, then have a symbolic wedding and reception in Santorini. This is far easier to put together than a legally binding wedding. 

Remember that hotels in Santorini fill up fast. If you’re planning to have a large number of people over, book as early as you can. Save your rooms a year in advance just to be sure. 

What legal papers should you prepare for your wedding in Santorini?

All legal papers required for the wedding should be submitted in Greek. Visit the Greek embassy in your country and have your documents certified before you submit them. Ask which documents need an apostille stamp and make sure to get it for them. 

You will need: 

  • Both, yours and your other half’s birth certificates
  • Non-impediment certificates for the bride and groom
  • A Legal document stating that both groom and bride can legally be married.
