1. Create Destination-Specific Invitations for your Guests

 

To begin with, one marvelous idea is to create destination-specific invitations for your guests. Since you are having a summer destination wedding in a different wedding location than your hometown, you can easily enhance this fact by choosing wedding invitations that have Greek elements on them.

 

You can use the evil eye on your invitations, or opt for an oily theme on your wedding in general and, of course, your invitations. This will create a stunning result and will help your guests come in touch with the Greek culture early on.
