Having been inspired a little by Mamma Mia and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, I decided to pull together a Greek Inspired Wedding Theme
I would like to share a Moodboard with some styling ideas of how you can recreate your own Greek Wedding Day even though the sun may not shine so brightly here.
The colour palette I would suggest for this theme is blue and white.
I have taken these colours from the Greek Flag with the two colours representing the blueness of the sea, and the white of the restless waves.
For an accent colour , the inclusion of gold would represent the sun, and the opulence of the Greek Gods.
When choosing a venue for this theme, one that comes with pillars and marble would be a great choice, or consider choosing a Greek restaurant.
As a prelude to your event, an invitation with the greek key design or an olive branch design or just using signature colour would give your guests an insight into your event.
To create ambience for the theme, the use of greek style urns and lots of flowers around the reception room with the use of white florals and olive branches and leaves being popular.
For your reception tables, a plain white tablecloth, perhaps with blue accents such as table napkins and a small olive branch tied with gold ribbon.
To bring in the gold, charger plates could be incorporated in the table settings.
For the brides gown, consider a dress patterned and designed to reflect ancient style in a reflection of the sculptures of Greek Goddesses
For the boy’s keep it simple and classic with a Tuxedo.
For the Bridesmaids, a 1 shoulder or toga style gown in blue would compliment well.
For an idea of what style you could have your cake , consider a design that simply incorporates the colour pallette or the inclusion of olive branches, laurels.
For your favours consider little botttles of greek olive oil that you could personalise yourself, or to be really creative, you could make special greek wedding cookies called Kourambiedes.
For your entertainment, a greek band or dancers could play or dance.
