Planning traditional weddings in Greece
Greek wedding traditions are so widely-known that there have been entire movies dedicated to them. Though Snapdragon can plan all kinds of weddings in Greece, some couples enjoy partaking in the traditional customs of the destination. One of the most famous is the stefana—-or wedding crowns—-which the bride and groom wear during the ceremony. Attached by a thread, the stefana overtly symbolise the union between the happy couple. Then, of course, there is the hugely popular tradition of plate smashing, which dates back to the days of Ancient Greece.
After the ceremony, Greek wedding parties traditionally perform a dance known as the kalamatiano, in which the bridal party holds hands and skips together in a circle. It’s been compared to the horah of Jewish tradition, only without a chair.
Greek cuisine is some of the most delicious in the world. The wide variety of dishes, from mouth-watering dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) to rich feta cheese and delicate filo pastries, offer something for everyone.meet the team
