My big, fat, gay, Greek wedding in Rhodes
With the nights drawing in so much earlier now and the temperature starting to drop, you could do worse than snuggle down together under the duvet and start making plans for your sun-kissed wedding in Rhodes!
There’s even more reason for same-sex couples to celebrate in 2014 because you will (at last) be able to have a legal marriage registration in the UK (woo-hoo!), and we’re sure that many of you happy couples who have already registered a civil partnership will be wanting to ‘convert’ that to marriage!
So why not celebrate with a great big fat Greek wedding?!
Well, it doesn’t have to be that big, but whether you choose to have an intimate ceremony with just the two of you or the party of a lifetime with all your family and friends, Rhodes can most certainly give you the wedding ceremony venue in the sun that you’ve always dreamed of.
We’d like to share a few ideas with you over the coming months just to get you fired up into making the absolute most of your wedding in Rhodes.
If you’re inviting some of your closest family and friends to share in your joy, why not organize a full programme of events centred around your wedding ceremony? Send them all a programme with your wedding invitations so they have some time to prepare and know what is expected of them.
And since they are going to travel all the way to Rhodes to be with you on the happiest day of your lives, why not get them really involved?
When you have a celebrant to perform your wedding ceremony in Rhodes, she will always hold a rehearsal with you and everyone else involved in the ceremony before the big day.
The rehearsal doesn’t have to be a serious affair, in fact it’s a great time to start the party rolling, so why not hold the rehearsal on the afternoon before your wedding day and then ask all your guests to a pre-wedding party that involves everyone giving a ‘speech’ about you in which they relate some fond memories of you in the past?
You could give the party a theme, such as “all white on the night” inviting everyone to dress in white, or get everyone to go retro and then have music and dancing from your favourite era after the speeches. You get the gist – have some fun with your ‘besties’ before the serious stuff kicks off and the tissues come out!
Stay tuned – more ideas to come!
