Did anything funny or unusual happen at your wedding? I had Greek dancers as a surprise for my guests and when the music started and the dancers came in, my uncle came out to the middle of the dance floor and performed an excellent Greek dance. I was definitely surprised, we’ve never seen him dancing.

Our first dance was… Titanium by David Guetta, the Bachata version to make it more interesting.  Since I know Latin dance I tried to teach my fiancée a bachata dance.

Our wedding was unique and special because… We had our closest friends and family overseas with us.

What is your advice for other brides? Don’t stress, the best way to deal with this is to delegate a lot of tasks to a professional wedding planner like Olympia Giannopoulou from Marryme in Greece.
