Your aisle style is the perfect way to channel your inner goddess. Opt for a flowing, ethereal gown with subtle embellishments. Not only will it look effortlessly romantic, it will help to keep you cool in the hotter weather. A destination wedding is the perfect opportunity to don a pair of sandals and you’ll save any chance of having sore feet! Alternatively, you could ramp up the glamour factor by rocking a pair of golden heels for a luxe look. Gilded accessories are also a must-have for any bride who wants to add a Grecian vibe to their wedding day look. Our ‘Garland of Eden’ or 'Gold Leaf' side tiaras will look beautiful with fishtail plaits or a twisted up-do. When it comes to your bridesmaids, we love the thought of pale green gowns teamed with foliage-based bouquets. They will certainly have achieved Greek style perfection!

A colour palette of white, gold and soft green is a divine choice. We suggest using a lot of foliage and greenery to decorate your wedding venue. It’ll look on-trend and chic, as well as fitting in with the natural beauty of your surroundings. You can use a combination of olive leaves and greenery to decorate your centrepieces by creating a garland along the length of a wooden trestle table. Work in gilded candlesticks and tea lights as they’ll create a warm glow as the evening draws in. We also adore the idea of golden vases overflowing with blousy white roses and foliage. If you’re having round tables, why not use olive plant pots as rustic centrepieces? Tie olive branches to the back of your chairs with white ribbon as a modern alternative to traditional chair covers. Maintain the luxurious vibe throughout your décor by using gilded cutlery and charger plates teamed with high quality napkins. A few twinkling fairy lights will also look lovely draped from the trees at your wedding venue.
It’s all in the details. Spoil your guests with a variety of olive oil wedding favours. Simply write the name of each guest on a luggage tag and tie it around the jar with silk or twine ribbon. You can put them in each guest’s place setting and they’ll be reminded of your celebration each time they use it! If you’re struggling to think of table names, why not name them after the Greek gods? There are so many ways to give your wedding day that gorgeous Greek vibe…
