How far in advance should I book?
It’s not unusual for us to receive inquiries up to 2 or even 3 years ahead, but we tend to open our diary around Springtime for bookings the following year.
Most Destination Weddings will involve reserving a minimum of 3 to 4 diary days depending on your location, to ensure that we arrive safely and on time and are also well rested after traveling. We would advise that you book around a year in advance. Booking early can often be beneficial in terms of securing the best prices on flights and accommodation.
We love weddings and are always happy to hear from you, so please do message us at any time with your inquiry.
What costs am I responsible for?
For International Bookings and Destination Weddings, the client is responsible for paying all of the costs associated with us traveling to and staying at your location, in addition to the charge for the provision of your makeup and/or hair styling services.
We are mindful of the costs associated with getting married abroad and strive to keep charges fair and to a minimum.
This will include:
Return flights, Airport Taxes and any subsequent surcharges made by the airline after booking. Flight details and times, must be confirmed and agreed prior to reservation.
One cabin item and one item of checked in baggage with a minimum allowance of 23kg each way.
Tourist Cards or Visas, if applicable.
Taxi transfers to and from the airport, in Greece and at your destination.
Taxi transfers to and from the hotel to your wedding venue (if the two are different) or to other hotels for pre-wedding trials, if requested.
Sole occupancy room accommodation at your location. Where an assistant is also in attendance, accommodation on a shared basis is acceptable, so only one room will be required.
If the accommodation meal basis is not all-inclusive or full board (including soft drinks) a daily meal allowance for meals and soft drinks. This will be dependent on the costs at your location.
Vaccination costs, if necessary for your destination.
A flat rate charge of 100€ per day will be made for the traveling days either side of your wedding, during which time we will be unable to take any bookings.
An additional 50€ fee is applicable for any dates over the duration which fall on a National Holiday, including travel days.
Written confirmation of all arrangements and evidence of prepayment of these fees will need to be provided to us a minimum of 2 calendar months before traveling.
Full details of charges, or services that you will need to arrange or settle will be clearly provided in your Booking Confirmation. The Booking Deposit required will be dependent on the number of diary days required for your reservation and is non-refundable in the event of cancellation.
When should I book my wedding trial?
Trials are arranged at the bride’s convenience, but we recommend that the ideal time is 2-3 months before your wedding.
Bridal Makeup trials are held in Greece at our Studio in Thessaloniki.
It’s advisable to book your trial date as soon as you can so that we can offer you as much flexibility as possible. It’s not unusual that at peak times of year our diary can be booked out several weeks in advance.
If there you and other members of your bridal party who would also like trials, but are unable to attend in Greece, we can fly out to your destination a couple of days earlier by prior arrangement, subject to our diary availability. Trials for other members of your bridal party are chargeable and should be included in your initial booking request.
