Traditional Cretan Wedding

The decision of marriage is the most serious in the life of two people. To keep your marriage memorable must give great attention to details.

The treat present in every Greek wedding is ‘koufeta’: whole almonds, coated with sugar or chocolate. Usually they come wrapped in a piece of fabric along with a little souvenir (the whole gift is called ‘boboniera’) and we offer them right after the wedding ceremony, when the guests express their best wishes for the couple.

Every place has some kind of a traditional sweet for the wedding. Sweets from almonds, much like biscuits are offered in Irakleio. In Chania, the traditional treat is ‘kserotigana’. They have a round shape, resemble a flower and are made of flour dough, water and raki. We fry them in olive oil and serve after pouring honey over.

Crete is a wonderful wedding destination, all year round. If you like quiet beaches, avoid the period from the 10th of June to the 10th of September. There is more heat and the beaches are more crowded. There is an option, instead, to conduct a ceremony on the mountain, in Samaria gorge, a shepherd’s pen or a picturesque village on the mountains. We can send you our showcase, containing 300 photos of about 30 locations for you to pick from!
