A wedding party is definitely one of if not the most important party in one’s lifetime and the reason is very simple: it takes place in order to celebrate one of the most important days in one’s life: their wedding. If there is one party that should be as fun and as memorable as possible, that’s the wedding party, which is why people tend to hold said parties in unique venues. It’s not uncommon nowadays for couples to have their party abroad in an exotic destination such as Greece.
Greece is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and as such, it is also very popular with couples on their honeymoon and wedding parties. There a lot of people who search for anywhere from family vacations to couple honeymoon packages and excursions with their loved ones. In fact, thousands of couples choose to get married there, have their wedding party there and even stay in one of the many Greek islands for their honeymoon! With that being said, there are some islands that are more popular than others as far as wedding parties are concerned and those are the islands of Mykonos and Santorini. Which one is the best though? Let’s compare and find out!
Round 1: Venues
Mykonos: The island of Mykonos is the favorite destination of the rich and the famous in Europe because some of the most luxurious hotels in the continent can be found there. Also, some of the most exclusive and famous clubs and restaurants in Europe can be found there. If you are all about luxury and if you want to have a truly glamorous wedding party, then Mykonos is the right choice. If it’s good for the Kardashians, it should be good enough for you and your friends!
Santorini: Santorini is also a very famous island and it is also home to some very luxurious hotels and resorts, however, it’s the hotel rooms and suites that steal the show there. You can still have a unique wedding party in Santorini, it’s just won’t be as glamorous as that in Mykonos. It will definitely be more picturesque though, but more on that later.
Round one winner: It has to be Mykonos, although it’s a close call!
Round 2: The landscape / scenery
Mykonos: Although Mykonos is a typical Cycladean island with white-washed houses and small churches, it’s not famous for its beautiful scenery! That’s not to say that your pictures won’t be beautiful or special, but there is nothing unique about Mykonos other than its windmills. Mykonos’ strongest suite is its night-life.
Santorini: Here’s where Santorini REALLY shines! The island is known all over the world for its scenic caldera and amazing sunsets. It is one of the most photographed places in the world every year and its beauty needs to be experienced to be believed. If you want your photos to be as unique and amazing as possible, then Santorini is definitely the perfect choice.
Round two winner: Santorini, it’s not even close!
Round three: Honeymoon potential
Mykonos: Like we said earlier, Mykonos is one of the most popular tourist and holiday destinations in the world and the reason is very simple: it’s due to its amazing night-life. If you are into clubbing or if you would like to taste some gourmet meals prepared by world-class chefs, then Mykonos is a perfect choice for your honeymoon. It’s also home to some pretty amazing beaches and you can board ships for many other Aegean islands from there.
Santorini: Santorini is a very well-rounded destination as far as honeymoons are concerned. Its scenery makes it one of the most romantic summer destinations in the world. Furthermore, it is also home to some amazing hotels with rooms perched on the Caldera and some amazing restaurants. It is also really close to other islands, making it perfect for island hopping.
Round three winner: It’s a draw! It all comes down to what YOU would like to do during your honeymoon!
