Looking for help regarding a wedding.
Me and my partner are looking to get married abroad, and have been looking at the Greek Islands. (Ionioan islands)
For the wedding itself we like the idea of an area which is beautiful, scenic island which is lush with green, flowers, trees, rural, traditional, beautiful views etc. Nothing spoilt, full of tourists, tourist shops etc. We do not mind staying in a resort somewhere more popular etc but again we want it to be nice and special but cater for our guests holiday needs and then we can travel to the wedding area. something off the beaten track for the wedding.
We want an island that won’t be too expensive as we are aware our guests will need to pay money to come but we don’t want them to begrudge the cost of everything. A lot of our guests will be brining children too.
Neither of us has been to any Greek island :/ but we will pick an island and visit it before we book anything. We looked at a chapel in Assos in Kefalonia but I am unsure about this because some people have said it is expensive and very touristy.
We will need to travel during the summer half term most probably as their is a teacher in our family.
Other islands mentioned have been Kos (but I am not sure if this is too ‘burnt’ looking scenery and rocky, and Skiathos but some have said this is small and not a high variety of things to do)
So… I am asking you guys for your personal thoughts and opinions on any Ionian islands and areas, what they are like, what they look like and cost to fly there/eat etc.
The ionioan islands have been mentioned as being 'greener' than other islands.
Id prefer an island which can be flown to direct from UK mainland, something not too expensive for the flights so our guests can come.
