10 Reasons why you should hire a Kefalonian Planner – And make it Mythos Weddings

From the moment you or your partner popped the question – or maybe even before you got engaged – you’ve been dreaming of exchanging your vows on the stunning island of Kefalonia. On a gorgeous beach or in a traditional chapel, it does not matter. While there’s no denying the appeal of your Greek island wedding, the thought of planning such an important event far from home can be quite daunting. After all, you’ll have to hire vendors in the area (and negotiate their contracts), stay in budget and get the inside info on the best activities to do and sights to see. That’s why hiring a destination planner, and Mythos weddings to be exact, is key: These professionals can help you save time, money and a whole lot of stress.

Here are nine reasons our experts are a must-have for your planning process.

  1. We are here to answer every question and relieve your stress

We get it. Planning a wedding can be stressful and we are there to make the experience more enjoyable for you, your partner and your guests. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, seek our advice and remain in close contact from start to finish. The peace of mind that comes with using a trusted adviser can make your wedding that much more memorable and meaningful for years to come.

2. We will save you time

From the endless online research and countless phone calls to the scheduling and booking process, we are here to help. If you’re working full time or/and you’re a full time mum, while trying to plan your wedding, finding a spare hour to try and get in touch with a potential vendor can be a challenge, not to mention when they’re in a different time zone. From the start, share your vision with us and use our open line of communication to make sure everything lines up to match your expectations.

3. We can do the heavy research

The less back end work you have to do, the better. If you have zero connections to Kefalonia, you may find yourself overwhelmed by too many options and unsure of where to even begin. We can do the heavy behind-the-scenes work and narrow each category of vendor down to the ones worth paying attention to. From there, you can decide what best fits your style.

4. We can help you set a budget (and stick to it)

Since prices vary so much based on location, setting a budget without any guidance can be tricky. We can tell you if your proposed budget is realistic for the type of wedding you’re hoping to pull off, or steer you toward some options that will work better for your financial situation. To avoid over-splurging, follow our lead taking care of the necessities to cost before you start dreaming up extravagant décor and extras.

5. We can end up saving you money

Wedding truth: almost every bride falls in love with an image they saw online and unfortunately cannot afford. We are here to take your vision and make it fit your individual needs, making it look even more unique along the way. We may also be able to set you up with exclusive deals and savings. Furthermore, we always work with your budget in mind, creating specific plans to stir you away from unnecessary splurges and make sure there are no surprises.

6. Things Go Wrong at the Last Minute

We may have been planning your Big Day for months, years even. However,  there are always things that can go wrong on the day. We have heard about grooms rushing around picking up last minute items on their wedding day due to unforeseen circumstances! The couple should be relaxed and filled with love on their wedding day rather than attending to these little details. We are trained for these situations and have years of experience, to handle it with grace and a stress free mind to blast that disaster into dust.


7. We know the locale

Mythos Weddings can serve as your personal directory of recommendations. We are local. That means we know all the secret little spots with the most amazing views or ambiance for your ceremony. Is it a beach? A cliff? A chapel? We know it and we can get you there. As for the reception, we know all the best taverns, fields, monasteries… you name it!

8. We have connections with local vendors

We know people. More importantly: We know the right people. As a non-local, your connections with vendors at your dream destination may not be as strong as they would be back home. Mythos Weddings has its own tightly-knit network of florists, DJs, photographers and more. After all, our goal is to make your wedding as successful as possible, so our recommendations are likely to be the best of the best.

9. We know what works and what doesn’t

Trying to squeeze 100 guests into a venue that will only hold 50? Not on our watch. It’s always a good idea to make an in-person visit to your location before the wedding (maybe even two), but we will be able to say “yea” or “nay” to a lot of questions you may have about Kefalonia. From the seating arrangement and the position of the photographer during your vows to how guests should reach the venue, we have been there, done that and can advise you on what works and what simply doesn’t in a location you may be unfamiliar with.

10. We are fun!

Being the closely knit group of Greeks that we are, we are all about creating new relationships with our couples and why not their guests! We will be there for you not only during but after your wedding as well! As for the event, you can count on us enjoying every single moment, getting all sentimental during your ceremony, or doing the Zorba dance with you, while braking plates!
