When it comes to wedding destinations, the island of Mykonos in Greece is one of the most popular in the world. The reason why this island manages to stand out from the hundreds of other islands in Greece and the Mediterranean Sea, is the fact that it manages to combine natural beauty and a traditional atmosphere with extreme luxury. Mykonos is the favorite vacation of many a celebrity and millionaire because it is famous for its many unique and very luxurious villas. Those villas are the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable wedding in Mykonos and this is why hundreds if not thousands of couples get married there each year.
The good thing about Mykonos villas is the fact that they are all located in large properties and thus they come with large outdoor spaces and lush gardens. This means that the couple can get married AND have the wedding ceremony on the villa’s property. It goes without saying that the island’s many picturesque churches and chapels are also ideal places for a gorgeous wedding ceremony that people will remember forever. So, here’s what you need to know before booking a Mykonos villa for your wedding.
Like we said earlier, Mykonos villas are very popular which means that they are in very high demand each year. Although there are many properties on the island not all of them are ideal for weddings. The number of suitable villas is definitely finite and during the moths of summer, it can seem like there’s not enough of them to go around! If you decide on having your wedding in a Mykonos villa, you need to book one as soon as possible and preferably quite a few months before the summer starts. That way you will have more options, the chances of finding a good property will be rather big and you might even land a good deal since demand won’t have driven the prices up yet. It’s a win – win situation!
Work with a property management agency
Property management agencies are essentially middle-men or fixers. They are companies that act as liaisons between the guests and the owners of the properties. A property management agency manages a lot of villas and as such, they know the villa rental market better than anyone. A good manager will listen to your needs and your dreams, will study your budget and will help you pick the perfect property for you. Going through all Mykonos villas looking for the ones that are suitable for weddings is a long and tedious process, leave it to the professionals and focus on your wedding.
Some villas can be quite secluded because their main “selling point” is the fact that they offer peace and privacy to their guests. Those villas are usually suitable for weddings but they can be far from “civilization” which can prove troublesome for you and your guests. Also, if you decide to get married in a church, you should pick a property that’s as close as possible to said church. Pay close attention to the location of each villa to avoid bad surprises.
