WHERE DO WE BEGIN?
Your wedding is one of the most important occasions in your life, but knowing where and how to start planning your special day can be daunting. How do you find the perfect venue? What should you look for in a supplier? Who will ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day? Where do we begin??? Planning a wedding takes a huge amount of time and effort, especially a wedding abroad with all the potential problems that a foreign language and culture can present. Many couples have such busy lives these days that they simply cannot devote sufficient time to their wedding preparations. Others start their planning full of enthusiasm but become overwhelmed with the level of organisation that is required, whilst for some the arrangements can feel like a logistical nightmare when the added complications of time, distance and language are also taken into account. However, this doesn’t mean that a wedding here in Rhodes is an unachievable dream. There is a solution to hand.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
If you’re planning a wedding in Rhodes, Lindos Weddings are here to alleviate the stresses and time pressures associated with planning such a special event. We work on your behalf to provide help and advice regarding the legal side of things, make the necessary ceremony arrangements, help you to choose and book your reception venue, locate exceptional suppliers and manage your preparations, ensuring that your wedding day is planned to perfection. We are also able to help with advice regarding your required legal paperwork and offer assistance to help you ensure that this side of your preparation is adequately taken care of.

HOW WE WORK
The fundamental philosophy of Lindos Weddings is to provide you with a personal and professional planning service that will culminate in a truly perfect wedding day. We are passionate about helping to plan and manage weddings that are as unique as our clients, and we will work closely with you to incorporate your dreams, ideas and personalities into your own special day. Based in Lindos, we work throughout the island to help our clients create personal and unique wedding celebrations. If you are planning your event anywhere at all on Rhodes, please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
We understand that you may be worried that hiring a wedding planner means you will lose control over your wedding arrangements. We aim to allay these concerns by ensuring you are kept up-to-date with your preparations at all times through our remarkably successful face-to-face meetings and regular telephone and e-mail contact. We work WITH you and FOR you in order to help produce a wedding day that will live on in your memories forever.
One of the primary advantages of booking with us is that we are able to confirm your ceremony date, time and location even before you pay a deposit. We are in almost constant contact with the Authorities here in Rhodes and can check availability of potential ceremony dates and get back to with the very latest information, normally within 24 hours. Only once you have made your decision regarding your ceremony and your booking has been accepted by the relevant Town Hall will you then be asked to pay a deposit in order to confirm and secure your arrangements. No longer do couples have to wait until they have actually arrived in Rhodes before learning of their final arrangements, which is how it should be. We didn't want to face so many months of uncertainty before our wedding, and don’t see why our clients should either. Professional Wedding Planners, offering a Professional service!
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Our focus is on providing our clients with a wedding day that will live on in their memories forever, one in which they have been actively involved in orchestrating and planning and one that will finally exceed their initial expectations. Being able to provide this, whilst staying within budget, is at the heart of our business. It’s what we do best!
Since opening for business in late 2004, we have grown to become the largest, truly independent Wedding Planner on Rhodes. We have done this by being proactive and imaginative, making wedding arrangements for couples who desire a little more than a standardised service for their wedding day. We are as a couple still actively involved in arranging all of our Clients wedding days, ensuring that their requirements and wishes are met and that they enjoy a wonderful wedding day. Although our business has grown, we haven’t lost sight of the basic principles behind ‘Lindos Weddings’ - quality, service and value all drawn together with experienced, independent, expert guidance.
PROFESSIONAL, ESTABLISHED AND RESPONSIBLE
Also, it’s important to point out that we are one of the only Wedding Planning companies on Rhodes to have a registered office on the island. Many Wedding Planners do not have a physical address, which makes it impossible for you to drop in to see them at your convenience. Being based in the very heart of Lindos, our office also serves as a consultation venue and is there for you to stop by and see us at any time that suits you.
Rhodes has seen tremendous growth in the number of companies offering wedding planning and other wedding related services over the years. Unfortunately not all of these new arrivals have taken the time or trouble to ensure that their businesses are running legally and meeting their obligations with regard to Tax and other mandatory procedures as required by Law. It is simply not enough for a business operating here to be registered in the UK, it is also required to be a fully formed business in Greece. You can rest assured that Lindos Weddings is a legally registered company, both in the UK & Greece, and operates in a fully professional manner. We were actually the very first company in Greece to be categorised by the Greek company purely as professional Wedding Planners. Although many Wedding Planners may on the face of it seem to offer a good service, are friendly in their emails and early contact and may be able to provide glowing references, its important that you check that anyone you deal with is completely trustworthy and working legally. Past clients may not be aware that the company they used for their own wedding day was perhaps working outside of the Law. Any business offering services in Rhodes needs to be able to supply its clients with a full FPA (VAT) receipt for all fees and payments made and ensure that the necessary Taxes are passed on to the Greek Government, which we of course are more than happy to do.
DROP BY AND SAY ‘HELLO’…..
If you are visiting Lindos and have already booked your wedding day with us, or are on Rhodes researching your wedding for a future date, please do take the time to drop by for a coffee and an informal, no obligation chat. If you would like to arrange to see one of our Head Coordinators whilst visiting Rhodes in order to discuss your exciting plans, then we would be happy to make the arrangements. We’d love to see you here. We are very easy to find, our office is on the main street running through the village, next door to ‘Antika Bar and only 5 meters from ‘Yannis Bar’. The picture at the bottom of this page will give you a good idea of what to look for.
AND FINALLY…. OUR WONDERFUL ‘LINDOS LADIES’.
All our staff in Rhodes, both full-time and seasonal, are legally employed, work exclusively for us and and have been with us for a number of years.
Our UK based Consultants are all either former wedding coordinators who have worked for us here in Rhodes or ex-' Lindos Weddings’ Brides. Each and every one has a wide ranging experience in providing a comprehensive and customer focused personal service, ensuring you have the very best help and assistance available to you at each and every stage of your wedding planning and subsequently on your wedding day. They have all been through the entire planning process themselves and understand exactly how to approach the initial planning of your wedding day from the clients perspective.
As we now head into our tenth year of operation we are delighted to say that we have never parted company with a member of our Coordinating staff, and it is this level of consistency and experience that helps keep us at the very pinnacle of the wedding planning industry here on Rhodes. The importance of having friendly, experienced professionals to hand on your wedding day should never be underestimated. Whereas some Wedding Planning companies in Rhodes have a very high turn over of staff, we have always felt that it has always been in our clients interests, as well as our own as the company owners, to have the right people on board, and all our ‘Lindos Ladies’ certainly fit the bill. Our staff are our greatest asset, their friendly enthusiasm and excellent local knowledge means that they are invaluable to us as a company. Having all been specifically recruited and personally trained in our own methods and procedures over the years, they all carry with them the same high levels of commitment and professionalism that we ourselves strive for. Building upon their already extensive experience as the years go by, you can rest assured that you have the best of the best available to you at every stage of both the planning and realisation of your most special day as a couple. We firmly believe that you really could not be in better hands.
