When couples ask us if they should have a pre/post wedding event we always encourage them to do so. I can’t stress enough the importance of having such an event. It is not only a fantastic way to greet and welcome your guests to your weeding but it also extends the feel of your wedding celebrations spreading over many days which makes it more enjoyable for both the couple and their family and friends.
A pre or post wedding event has other benefits too. It is a wonderful way to show your guests your gratitude for traveling from afar (usually!) to be with you on your special day, it takes the edge off from the couple by giving them a window of relaxation and fun away from the sometimes hectic, wedding planning and an opportunity for guests to experience other local flavors and see different locations outside the wedding day.
In the wedding we planned in Corfu, the coupe hosted a day trip to the beautiful islands of Paxos and Antipaxos. The day was filled with exploring the caves and swimming in the turquoise waters of Antipaxos as well as a traditional lunch at the picturesque, fjord-shaped Gaios port of Paxos.
