I'm a Zante bride - September 2012.
We did anticipate arranging the wedding ourselves with the help of the family that run the accomadation that we will be staying in but don't feel like we are getting anywhere.
We have told the family that we want to get married on the 5th September and they have said this is ok and they will speak to the registrar but are we suppose to get some official cofirmation that our wedding is booked? They haven't asked us about a time, surely they would need ths to book our wedding?
I emailed them over a week ago asking for prices for various extras and also details of the photographer/hair/make up people that they recommend as surely these will need to be secured in advance and I would really like to speak with them before hand so we know what we will be getting and feel happy with it. I haven't yet had a response to my email.
I am also finding it difficult to find someone to translate our documents into Greek as they have said this need to be done before they are sent over. I have emailed 4 or 5 people in the UK that I found through the Greek Consulate but haven't heard anything back, this is at least 3 weeks ago.
I know the Greeks are very laid back but at the minute I feel as if i have a holiday booked and not a wedding and am starting to wish that we had used a wedding planner or chosen somewhere else entirely different
Do you ladies have things like your photographer, hair, make-up arranged already? I may be worrying unneccesarily but we are only there 3 days before we get married and a week in total so it seems an awful lot to arrange in such a short time.
