All of the months of planning finally gets to turn into a night of fun and relaxation. Everybody deserves to have a great reception after all of the stress of planning the wedding, paying for the wedding, and getting everything and everybody organized.

A Greek wedding reception is one of the biggest and wildest parties you will ever experience. Even if it is only a small after party, with not a lot of people, it is still surely going to be one of the biggest parties of the year. A Greek wedding reception will be full of good times including tons and tons of food, dancing, many drinks, and a lot of music. These parties will last into the early morning hours so be sure to where your dancing shoes!
Weddings in Greece are very rarely a boring event. Most people feel that weddings can sometimes be long and drawn out, but a Greek wedding and reception is anything but that. Starting with the actual ceremony you can tell that the scene is much less informal than those that you have come to expect. And that can definitely be a good thing. An informal, or less formal, ceremony can help to calm everyone's nerves and make the reception go much more smoothly. And like I mentioned above a Greek wedding reception is never boring, regardless of how many people are there, or what kind of activities are involved.
But all of this does come at a cost. There are months and months of planning that go into a Greek wedding. Everything needs to be set out and detailed from the very beginning. It may not seem like a lot, but just like all weddings, the planning is the hardest part. Both the bride and the groom are an integral part of the wedding planning experience. They both are in charge of setting up the date, and booking reservations for everything from the church to the reception hall. And don't forget about ordering the food and the music. It is essential that for a Greek wedding that everything gets planned early and in advance. If everything is done early enough you can always go back and add things if you have forgotten them. So always remember to plan ahead, then you know what you need. Don't just write everything down and forget about it later. Get a good long list of everything that you will need for your wedding. This will ensure that you do not lose anything in the planning process.
In short, do not ever pass up the chance at attending a good old fashion Greek wedding. It will be a great time for everyone involved. And remember to put on your dancing shoes, it is going to be a long night. Lot of dancing and good times. This all adds up to a night that you won't forget.
