FAQ

Why do you organize weddings?

A couple’s wedding is one of the happiest days of their life together. It should be full of joyous celebration and free of stress. I take joy in helping to make people happy, taking care of details large and small so that they can relax from the moment they set foot on the island until they depart for their shared life together.

Whom do you plan weddings for?

I will work with anyone in need of my services. I particularly love to work with creative couples looking to design a unique and extraordinary wedding.

What is your specialty?

I’ve done most of my work organizing three-day wedding celebrations, which include pre- and post-wedding events, including the ceremony itself. Hydra offers a wealth of options to provide an unforgettable series of activities, celebratory breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and other events for guests and bridal party alike.

What do your services cost?

My fee structure reflects the services you would like me to provide. Generally I offer premium services, working with the area’s best suppliers (having thoroughly researched the range of services available over the years). I aim to help you hold your dream wedding, based on a budget realistic both to your vision and the island. We typically plan weddings for couples with an overall budget of at least 8.000€ for an average of XXX guests. However that does not mean we do not work with people hoping to arrange a smaller event. Please bear in mind, however, that professionals don’t work for free. If you are on an extremely tight budget that doesn’t allow you to afford a wedding planner’s services, there is information widely available on the Internet.

I can find free info on the Internet. Why pay you?

The Internet can provide you with just about everything, except the following: (a) confirmation that the information you have found is accurate, and (b) feet on the ground. It’s not so easy to coordinate the various service providers you’ll be working with via e-mail or Skype/phone. And when you arrive for your big day, do you want to be dealing with the last-minute details or hanging out with your guests and enjoying all the island has to offer?

We recommend you to avoid July and August. These months are the peak of season and the hottest!  The island usually is busy and therefore you might have a difficulty to find accommodation for your guests or book other services.Not mentioning you will have to pay full prices.

Can we get married any day of the week?

Yes,but we advise you to avoid weekends if possible. Hydra is a very popular weekend destination and therefore (as we mentioned above) busy. In case you have to, because our insight connections we will be able to help you.

We recommend you to be at least 2-3 days prior to the wedding as we would like to have a pre-wedding meeting with you and discuss everything and at least one working day after the ceremony in order to visit Registrar’s office and sign the marriage certificate.
