    Hi evveryone, I have just joined this site to get ideas for my wedding that I am not sure of the date yet (winter 2008??) and I am unsure of the location yet (Europe?? Down South?) So I guess I have lots of research and thinking to do. I would love to get married in Italy, Spain, Greece.... but cost could be a factor for my guests. I estimate that between 20-30 will try and come if they can. So we will see. Hope to get lots of info off this site and hear other peoples experiences, advice and tricks to make it smooth. Thanks for listening (or reading Sara

    Welcome, I think we have one other newbie getting married in Greece, but let us know what ever you decide. How fun and make sure you post your engagement story when you get a chance.

      Congrats and welcome! Everyone here is great at helping out, so ask away. Europe would be amazing, but could be very expensive. You may also lose a day each way of vacation for your guests with the flight and jet lag. All depends on your guests and money...I would LOVE to get married over there. How romantic and a great adventure!! Good luck!

            Welcome! FOTINI is the other member who is getting married in Santorini greece which is stunning. I think most of us would love to get married in Europe but it is very costly for your guests. But if your guests will go then you should def do it! Let us know how we can help.

                  Thanks for all the support. I have started researching online about renting villas (one is beautiful and cost per guest per week is about $650 CDN) which isn't tooo bad. I have also looked into booking out of London. You would not believe how cheap AI's are from London. I realize you need to get to London but if the week is only going to cost $400- $600 for the flight (from London), accomindations and food then the flight to Londodn can't be that (from here you can get flights for $500 CDN and up). Does anyone know of anyone who has gone the route of booking the AI out of London?? Sara
