Getting married in Athens: the best spots

Athens ● 23 August 2017
 

Santorini is not the only place to get married in Greece. Of course, Santorini is a very romantic island, ideal for a lovely ceremony and reception as well as a dreamy honeymoon. However, Athens can also be an amazing destination for your wedding for it offers numerous options. Actually, Athens can give you more possibilities than any other place in Greece, and it is not an exaggeration to say that in Athens, you can have any type of wedding you want.


The most popular wedding in Athens is the wedding by the sea. In the coastline of Athens, Athens Riviera, there are many hotels by the sea where you can organise your reception. Small chapels on the top of the hill, where you will have an amazing view of Saroni Gulf, as well as by the sea are a perfect choice for your religious ceremony. If you prefer a civil ceremony, there is the possibility to organise it in the courtyard of the hotel in Athens you have chosen. After your ceremony, a romantic reception with the sounds of the sea or a beach party for you and your friends can make your wedding unforgettable.

In Athens Center, you can combine culture and history with your wedding day. There, you can find not only Orthodox but also Catholic and Evangelic churches for a religious ceremony, and then, your options for the reception or the party are endless. Hotels with view of Acropolis are ideal for an open-air ceremony under the stars with a magnificent view of the sacred hill, but there are also many hotels in Athens on the top of a hill, such as Lycabetttus hill. From their roof garden, the view of Athens, Acropolis and sea is impressive. If you want something less luxury and strict than a hotel, in Athens Center, you can find bars and restaurants with large courtyards where you can organise your party. The urban atmosphere inside the narrow streets of Thiseio, Plaka, Psirri and Gkazi is perfect for a stroll and alternative wedding photos.


Outside Athens Center, there are many manors with huge, beautiful gardens and small, romantic chapels. There, you can organise your ceremony and reception in a romantic place where everything is set up for weddings. Some of these properties have also pools, and their staff is experienced in the organisation of weddings. Thus, you don't have to worry about anything. Just choose your favourite place, and all your guests will be there to see you get married and then have an unforgettable party until the dawn.
