Hi everyone, 

Just thought I'd make a new thread for any other santorini 2019 brides 😊

im hoping to get married at Le Ciel and we're going out in April to see venues etc 

just been quoted for hair and make up:

€220 for me

€120 per bridesmaid 

does that seem about right? 

 

very excited!!

Hi Ambam19

You choose one of the best venues in Santorini, LeCiel has great background view, the service is excellent and it's the only closed venue with view which is really important at the night. 

I am professional wedding photographer based in Santorini and my wife is make up artist.

Her prices are better that those you told me:

Bridal make up:150

Bridesmaids:80 per person

You can check some of her work in her facebook page here:

If you still looking for a photographer and videographer my teams name is Wedding Stories Photography, we work more than 8 years in Santorini with all the best wedding planners.

You can check some of my work in our website, vimeo and facebook page here:

Thank you Ben, the price I was quoted was for hair as well as make up?

 

we haven't decided on photography or videography yet so I shall take a look, thank you. 

 

Hi Gemma, congrats to you too! I'm worried we're leaving it a bit late to book as we want end of June but we don't want to book without going there first. 

Does the sound limit bother you at all? 

I have looked at some flowers, chosen the invites and decided on rough colour scheme. I've been in contact with a few photographers for pricing and arranging Skype calls in the new year. I think we are going to ask guests to stay in Kamari if possible for transport and meeting up etc 

New bride

I am considering changing venue to Rocabella and going for May so it is classed as "low season" as they have a deal where you can then have seven rooms for three nights which would cover the bridal party. This is only a rough idea for now, I still have the date for Le Ciel held.

Are you sending out save the dates?I'm finding figuring rough numbers out difficult - people say they will come but not knowing if they will pull out nearer the time!

Have you started looking at any dresses yet? I have a rough idea of colour schemes and flowers but no doubt I will change my mind,

Where are you thinking of staying, Kamari also? Or just the guests?

Bridezilla

That's a good deal at Rocabella, are you going to go out and see the venues? 

Yes we're going to send out save the dates as soon as we've been out there in April and decided definitely. I agree it's really hard trying to work out numbers. We're inviting 70ish but think maybe 30/35 will come. 

ive started a Pinterest board for dresses and stuff for me and a sepstate wedding one but I won't try any dresses on until Jan 18 at very earliest. 

Im not sure about us yet, I'd like to stay in kamari so that we can meet up with our guests. We're going to have our honeymoon later in the year and go to Thailand I think so it won't bother us seieing our friends   and family 

one thing is going to be hard is not boring everyone with wedding talk as it's so far away!!

Hi Ambam19,

 

Yes this price is for both hair and makeup.

Also if you check my photography work and you like the style I can make you better prices for the full package of 10 hours. This package is the best because we can capture both preparations (bride and groom) we will make a lot of photos with bridesmaids too, after will follow the ceremony, than we can make 1 or 1,30 hour shooting on the best spots of Santorini and some shoots in blue domes, and finally the reception with dance party. To include all those you will need 8 or 10 hours. Also we will make you as a gift the drone and the next day shooting. All those in final price of 1500 euros the best offer.

With kind regards,

Ben from Wedding Stories Photography

Hi Ben,

Your prices do sound good. I do not seem to be able to find any reviews or recommendations online from anyone other than Julianna?

Apologies if I seem abrupt, I was brought up to think that if something seems too good to be true the it probably is, and 1500 for 10 hours photography and videography seems like a very good deal!

New bride

We decided to switch to Rocabella but it means we now will be having it at the start of May! Just seemed quite a good deal so we are happy enough to do that.

We haven't been out but plan to go in the summer although I have had friends that have had meals at the rocabella that rave about it so pretty happy with the choice.

It's so hard not to bore everyone with wedding chat - everyone will be sick of me by the time 2019 comes!! Have you decided on bridesmaids/groomsmen? 

I'm planning on sending on save the dates in may I think.

Hi Ambam19,

I have some reviews in our official wedding wire page, I am working more than 8 years in Santorini in top level with the most of the wedding planners who know me, my full name is Ben Rigas and if you ask anyone they will know me for sure. The reason that I have half prices is because last year I was owner of another company in Santorini and know we separate so I believe those moneys are good enough if you are full booked. My believe is always to help people and to be happy with my work and to not pay a fortune.

Here are some of my new weddingwire reviews:

Gemma249 Rocabella is one of the TOP venues in Santorini, your choice is great, and May is a hot month in Santorini even on the start, maybe is more beautiful because to make your wedding on July or August is too hot and very difficult for the couple especially in shooting with such a white reflection of Santorini.

 

Bridezilla

Thank you for the clarification Ben.

 

Yes Gemma we have chosen bridesmaids and groomsmen and have asked all but 1 bridesmaid so far and they are all excited even with it being miles off!

Are you going to choose everything via the wedding planner or look for alternative prices? It's hard to know that the best way is. I, too, am concerned about the negative impact that Brexit may have on the £. Even from when i started looking it has dropped from £1.18 to £1.12 which is a big difference. Nothing we can do about it though so there's no point in stressing over it. I think I'm going to plan for the worst and if it's better then great!

 

Bridezilla

ps I booked our trip there last night so we go end of April, just in time for our normal anniversary, although that will be changing :)  and i have booked a tasting at Le Ciel which i'm really looking forward to.....we've also requested to hear the volume of the music so we can decide if it's the right venue.

it's scary how the costs spiral though!

Hi. 

 

Although i I am not a bride I would like to know if 5 thousand is a reasonable budget to get married in santorini le ciel. For 40+ guest buffet not sit down meal. holiday  ceremony and reception. 

Bridezilla

Hi James, short answer is afraid not. We're looking at 9k for sit down meal 30 guests - buffet is more expensive. Only food, drink, venue hire and dj is included in this. Decorations, celebrant, cake etc all on top as well as your accommodation and travel etc x

New bride

Hi

 

I have my wedding booked for sept 2018 for Le Ciel and have just been told that their license might be getting suspended due to noise complaints - if you have paid deposits you need to check as the venue may be closed

New bride

Xxxx

New bride

Hiya chloe! Im looking to get married around summer 2019 at danas villas. I have the booking form filled in ready to give back to confirm. The wedding planner has saved the 3rd August for us. When do you plan to go? 

New bride

How much has everyone budgeted for accommodation and flights? And does anybody know of any nice accommodation for the wedding party? I budgeted around £8000 but the costs are going up and up! I only got engaged Christmas day but have chosen wedding planner and venue! Dont like to mess about haha

New bride
