Great thread! So glad I have finally found an up to date blog on Skiathos weddings :)
We have booked our wedding through Ionian Weddings for August 2016. We are getting married at the Bourtzi (outside) at 6pm, then having our reception at the Atrium hotel. We had hoped to have a boat transfer from the ceremony to the reception but we have just found out that from the beach where the boat will drop us it's a fifteen minute walk uphill to the hotel! We're a bit gutted because we really like the idea of a boat but think the uphill walk in the heat will be a bit much for some of our guests. Just wondered if anyone else has done a boat transfer from the Bourtzi to The Atrium and if they had any tips or ways around it??
Also, we'd really like a band or some form of entertainment in the evening, I quite like the idea of some traditional greek plate smashing :) but Ionian Weddings have quoted a price for 3 hours for a greek band and we're not sure we'd want it for that long. Again, any tips would be appreciated. I will have a look at the Groom Therapy band that has been mentioned here.
Ionian Weddings have been fab so far for anyone who is thinking of booking with them. We have sent loads of emails asking questions and they always reply very promptly. They are sorting all the legal paper work too at a very reasonable price (I'm not quite brave enough to do it myself, although it can be done).
Any advice from brides past, present or future would be much appreciated :) We have 52 guests.
