I don’t quite understand why this is the only option? If you want to get married on the villa like your last picture, why can’t you? That looks so much more beautiful than the very very small church imo. 

that said, I would leave the meet and greet until afterwards (if you decide to go with this church). You’ll have plenty of mingling and dress-showing-off at the party!

I’m a bit confused. You’re talking about a grand entrance? Shouldn’t all your family be in the church when you arrive, seated and ready for the wedding? Typically your grand entrance is you walking down the aisle, not sure why you would have a meet and greet when you arrive. Weddings I’ve been to or in the bride hides out until they are ready to walk down the aisle. Can you do a receiving line afterwards or come back to dismiss everyone pew by pew and greet them/hug then?  There will be plenty of time to mingle after the ceremony! But I’m not entirely sure I understand your questions. Your dress and veil will still look gorgeous, whatever venue you get married in

You said you’re getting married in Mykonos, but the outdoor photo is of Le Ciel in Santorini. So you’re doing an outdoor ceremony and then getting married at the church? I’m confused. 

But to the part about your grand entrance. I know in Greece, the groom and all the guests wait outside the church for the bride to come. Then the bride and groom enter first and the guests follow them inside and take their seats. Is this what you’re referring to?

Oh I didn’t know greece was so specific with that! Interesting to know. 

*personally* I feel like the arch at the villa would be trying to re-create the ceremony. What about a different kind of “photo piece” like a floral wall or something? At the end of the day if you want to re-create the arch and take ceremony-esque pictures in front of it, its not going to kill anyone lol. 

The view from that villa is TDF though!

Honestly, with that narrow of an aisle I’d walk down alone. Two people clearly will not fit and your dad will likely end up stepping on your veil. 


ETA: whoops just realized you were asking for suggestions to doing something outside the church. No ideas there, sorry!
