FAQ

1. Can you design wedding crowns and wedding sets just for us?

Absolutely! Our workshop can make almost anything. Send us pictures or describe it, however you have imagined it, and we will tell you the cost and it’s delivery date. Before sending anything, we always take pictures.

2. How much does the wedding decoration cost?

Prices vary. It mainly depends on the quality and the quantity of the materials. There are simple laces and embroided ones, tulle and gauze or even silk and velvet, simple and handmade lanterns, roses and orchids. There Is the girl working from her home with no experience and the specialized florist with a lot of projects under his belt. It would help if you had a budget in mind so that what the florist proposes is within that price range. It would save time! And most of all… Don’t cut corners on the wedding decorations. Pick the best wedding photographer. Pictures last forever.

3. How do I stay on budget for my wedding?

Save money on from our services. An evening coif costs 30 € while a wedding once costs 150€. Evening make-up costs 30-40€ and a wedding one 180€. Music coverage from a professional 500-1000€ without a receipt. Videos and photographs costs 1500€ each with no receipt. And renting a wedding dress… don’t even go there! No one makes that much money in a single money. Don’t throw them around!!!

4. What should I be careful in my arrangement with the florist?

His offer should be analytical. Instead of “wedding decoration 250€”, it should be something like “For the wedding decoration we will use 20m of gauze, 5m of lace, 8 handmade lanterns with candles and 6 floral arrangements, each coming with 3 dendrobium or vanda orchids and 5 Ecuador or Kenyan or Greek roses”. In actuality you might need 4 or 6 roses but that’s not the issue. And the offer should come with pictures. Flowers are living organisms. There are changes according to the season. You should be flexible with small changes.

In the offer, there should be a mention on whether VAT is included or not. You should always get a receipt and pay VAT. It is usually one of the “tricks” used making honest florists lose projects.

5. How do I choose a wedding planner?

Check his personal portfolio, not pictures downloaded from Pinterest. Experience is key. Everyone has to start from somewhere obviously but if your wedding organizer does have the necessary knowledge and experience, excellent results won’t be a guarantee. Your wedding day is too important to risk anything going wrong. Whoever you may choose the price will vary according to their experience.

And of course, always prefer a local wedding planner! There is no point using a wedding planner from Athens to organize your wedding in Monemvasia or Crete. Who knows Crete better than a local? The cost of using a local wedding planner is also a lot lower. You want have to pay travelling expenses or even accommodation and food for him and his team. No one knows the right person to help out should the need arise better than a local wedding planner!!!
