Mykonos is known all over the world for being one of the most popular holiday destinations. It is the island where many of the world’s celebrities choose to spend their summer vacation and as such, its name is synonymous with fun, partying and of course extravagant luxury. However, every year millions of people who aren’t of course all millionaires and celebrities chose to visit Mykonos for their summer vacation. This is happening for one very simple reason: Mykonos is an island where all of your dreams can come true. It’s the place where you will have the most unforgettable summer vacation.
What makes Mykonos stand out is the fact that not only it offers amazingly beautiful scenery and some of the world’s clearest beaches, it is also home to hundreds of very luxurious villas. Those villas are there to “host” the rich and the famous that visit the island each and every year but that doesn’t mean that one must be a millionaire in order to stay in one. In fact, as long as someone is able to afford the rate, they can stay in one of the many luxurious villas on the island.
It goes without saying that most visitors to Mykonos choose to stay in a villa in order to experience the life of the world’s elite, even if it is just for a few days or weeks. There are however people that choose to stay in those villas for a totally different reason: their wedding. Mykonos is one of the world’s most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations.
The first reason why couples choose to get married in this small island in the Aegean Sea is its natural beauty and picturesque landscapes. The second, and most important one, are the aforementioned villas. Why are Mykonos weddings ideal to be held in villas though? Let’s find out!
They are located on huge properties
When one rents a villa in Mykonos, they also rent the property that its located on. Those properties tend to be a bit on the big side and many of them also feature lush gardens and large swimming pools and gazebos. As you can probably tell, a well maintained and beautiful property with a gorgeous villa in the background is the perfect backdrop for a fairy tale wedding that everyone will remember. Since villa owners and property management agencies actually expect that the people that rent their properties will want to organize an event there, they will help couples organize their wedding.
They are really spacious
If you are not from Mykonos or Greece for that matter, asking your friends and family to travel to another country for your wedding can be quite the demand. You can show your appreciation for their presence by letting them stay in your villa for a couple of days. Most villas in Mykonos are pretty big and they can accommodate comfortably a lot of people. You can even arrange for a cook or catering service to be present while you’ll be hosting your guests in order to make their stay even more pleasant.
Getting to Mykonos is very easy
Although there are other islands that are very popular when it comes to weddings, most of them tend to be away from Piraeus, Greece’s main port and they can only be reached by a rather long boat ride. This is not the case with Mykonos. It is located rather close to Athens which means that it’s just a couple of hours away by boat. What really makes it stand out however is the fact that it has an international airport! During the summer, there are flights to Mykonos from most major European cities every day!
