HOW TO STYLE A COLORFUL AEGEAN WEDDING IN MYKONOS
Are you looking for ways to organize a chic and elegant destination wedding in Mykonos? If so, this colorful yet unadorned style shoot created by wedding planning company Eclectic Events Greecewill definitely provide you with some great ideas.
Living coral, which is the Pantone color of the year 2019, is an excellent color choice to embrace every detail of your wedding, from the flower decoration to the wedding table, if you want to follow the hottest trend in your wedding. You can also use a stylish wooden arch like this one, which matches so smoothly with the various wooden elements that cradle the setting.
If you wish your wedding to stand out, you can choose a minimal decoration with modern characteristics, and create a wedding table that combines tastefully a variety of flowers in different colors, and rarely seen arabesque candlesticks.

Well, if there are a few “tips” I can share with the brides to be, when planning a destination wedding in an island, you should follow me here:
Plan the wedding early enough (12 or 18 months in advance), pick your favorite place/island and make the Save the Date! Everything starts from there…
We all agree that Guests come first, don’t we? So, get a grip on the approximate number of guests you'll invite before settling on a venue. Then, decrease this number by 10-20% and you will have your actual number of guests attending (due to distance or other last minute obligations).
Invest in getting to know your Wedding Planner and built a mutual trust together, so that she can get to know more about you! This is the most important investment you will need to make for having the best wedding ever!
Budget the whole wedding so that you won’t get disappointed later! Make provision for all the “hidden” costs as we say, or consult your wedding planner to guide you through!
Paying for guests Accommodation is not a prerequisite. You can show your hospitality and appreciation only for your closed family and friends. Everyone else will experience a weekend off the city!
Pay & Book everything in advance: book everything in advance, to get better prices, so that you can spend later in last minute extravagances, like a pre wedding party, impressive fireworks, a famous live band or a next day brunch!
Transportation is a major issue for your guests, so check itineraries or let a travel agent deal with it.
Give a special character to the Decoration and Art de la Table of the venue. It is the first and last impression of your wedding and needs to be impressive, well lit and with the important elements standing out!
