Besides a party mecca and an island that impresses with its intense night scene, Mykonos island is also a magical wedding destination among those that have dreamed of a fairytale-like setting for their big day. If you decide to tie the knot in this insanely beautiful Cycladic spot, expect the fulfilment of everything you have always considered to comprise a dream Mykonos wedding.
From a stunning ceremony location overlooking the endless blue of the Aegean, under the heart-warming Mediterranean sun or the star-lit sky to a gorgeous wedding reception that exudes grandeur, chicness, and elegance, you can have it all exactly as you have envisioned it.
Superb Mykonos Wedding Locations
Whether you wish for a wedding with all-out glamour or quiet elegance, there is always a place to make the dream into reality.
Yes, it is true. Mykonos is an utterly romantic place to exchange vows of eternal love that has a wedding-perfect location for every type of wedding. For example, Little Venice is one of the most elegant neighbourhoods of the island and a fantastic little corner for those deeply and madly in love. With whitewashed houses built right on the edge of the sea and bougainvillaea-filled balconies literally hanging above the water, you have all the means for a one-of-a-kind outdoor affair.
If you have always wanted a more laid-back wedding ceremony, there are more than enough pristine Mykonos beaches that can house a casual or more sophisticated wedding ceremony, offering stupendous views and a sense of serenity while the gentle waves lap the shore. Among the most popular wedding-perfect beaches is Ornos Beach followed by Agios Sostis and Agios Ioannis beaches (ideal if you seek more peaceful spots).
Church or chapel
Then, there is the option of having your wedding at a traditional blue-domed chapel or church, with the most-photographed one being the idyllic Paraportiani church. In this case, you may find some local wedding traditions (i.e. the bride goes to the ceremony escorted by local musicians playing festive wedding songs while passing through the town, so everybody becomes part of the celebration) quite fascinating.
The windmills provide another fab wedding backdrop in the Island of the Winds. We can say the same about the picturesque Castle Panigirakis that is also home to numerous VIP weddings every summer. Now, if you also manage to get a shot next to or near Petros the Pelican (the island’s mascot), then you will definitely take a unique signature-piece of Mykonos with you back home!
Your Exclusive Villa
Your private villa can turn into a breathtaking wedding pavilion for your wedding ceremony. Have the ceremony next to the wedding-special decorated infinity pool, while enjoying unobstructed views of the shimmering turquoise waters of the Aegean when you say the I Dos. Then, enjoy traditional Greek dishes or tastes from international cuisine prepared by the hands of awarded chefs cooking in your kitchen, and music played by selected DJs or a live band.
There is no doubt that Mykonos combines all the essential elements of a dream wedding. Authentic Cycladic appearance, heart-stopping scenery, a top-notch wedding venue to please every preference and style, and the option to celebrate your special day in the comfort of your exclusive Mykonos villa. Simply perfect!
