I’m getting married in Greece as well and I definitely get the impression that it’s very informal but people do keep their word!  And they are very kind and pleased that foreigners want to get married there.  

We found a local wedding coordinator to help with translating paperwork and organising stuff, but we are going out there soon to plan stuff for next year so we are fortunate to do that. you’ll need to make sure you have the relevant documentation sorted out well in advance and translated, etc.  That’s the most important thing I think, to make sure it’s legal!  I have been in touch with another couple who got married in Greece and other than the paperwork and booking the town hall ceremony, they literally didn’t sort anything out until the week before when they arrived there!  

I would say, just arrive a week beforehand, then use that time to go around in person and see what has been arranged. If there’s anything you don’t like, I think that will be enough time to rearrange things.  good luck!!!
