With countless couples from around Europe choosing to tie the knot in Cyprus, the idyllic and romantic Mediterranean island provides the perfect backdrop for a wedding that dreams are made of. Kanika Hotels and Resorts offer a plethora of stunning venues to celebrate in style, while our expert wedding coordinators lead you every step of the way with meticulous care and attention. From civil ceremony logistics and banqueting options, to décor, music and photography, romantic perfection awaits. But there are certain choices that the bride and groom simply must make themselves, and we are here to ensure that you get it right!
1. Pick the ideal season for you
If you love the sizzling summer, you’ll no doubt want to plan your wedding when the heat is high, with plenty of sunbathing either before or after your special day. But the hot Mediterranean summers aren’t for everyone, and some couples prefer the months of April and May for a spring affair when the weather is milder. After all, you can still enjoy the gorgeous sunshine, dips in the pool, and blissfully warm weather – that’s the beauty of Cyprus.
2. Decide on an approximate budget
This may seem obvious but deciding on what you would like to spend on your dream day will help your wedding coordinator guide you on the very best options for you. Do remember that you want to feel comfortable with the choices you are making and don’t want to stress about exceeding what you are able to spend.
3. Plan a site visit beforehand
Nothing beats checking out the wedding location before the big day. Not only will you feel more relaxed once you meet your coordinator, but you’ll also have the chance to explore the grounds of your chosen hotel, get a real feel of where the ceremony will take place, and how you’d love to decorate it. Suffice to point out you’ll also get the chance to relax under blue skies and top up on much-needed vitamin D before the big day!
4. Keep the guest list in check
The moment that couples plan a wedding abroad, they usually start to panic about who to invite, who might not be able to make the trip overseas, and who may need help with the logistics of it all. But this shouldn’t really stress you out, as you can easily host a party for your wider circle once you get back home, and stick to a select circle of friends and family who you feel most comfortable with to accompany you on your overseas adventure.
5. Remember to have fun!
This is your big day and your time to shine as you create unforgettable moments. Always wanted purple flowers at your wedding? Go for it. Have your heart set on some swinging rock and roll music? Ask for it! This once in a lifetime special day is all about you and your partner, so be sure to revel in the splendour and ask for anything you wish for when you’re planning the special day. Key message: do it your way and enjoy every single moment!
