At Fanari Villas in Oia Santorini, your wedding reception will be organized with the utmost care, professionalism and style, ensuring a most enjoyable and memorable event for both the nuptial couple and their guests.
Fanari Villas Santorini wedding reception planners can arrange a seated dinner for up to 60 persons in one terrace or up to 100 – 120 persons on several terraces. If you prefer a standing reception with a buffet menu, a larger number of persons can be accommodated. On the other hand, if you want to spend a romantic evening for two, we offer a wedding dinner for just the bride and the groom either in Fanari Restaurant or at the terrace of your suite.
Our Santorini wedding planners can handle all the details of your reception and arrange every aspect according to your specifications, from the decoration of the reception area (floral arrangements, candles, torches, balloons, special lighting, printed menu, fine linen, china place settings, crystal glasses, and covered chairs), to the photographer and videographer, who are available to record the reception, if desired.
One of the best parts of a Santorini wedding reception is your transfer to the reception area. We recommend the traditional means of transport: a donkey. The couple can choose either to ride the same donkey or different donkeys. Otherwise, you can travel to the reception area by luxury rental car. Both the donkey and the car can be decorated with the flowers of your choice. A traditional two-piece band is available to accompany you to the reception area.
Music is an important part of any Santorini wedding reception. You have your choice of a traditional two-piece band comprised of a mandolinist and a violinist; a four-piece band that consists of a bouzouki player, a guitarist, an accordion player and a singer; or a DJ, who will play a selection of music according to your taste and style. Musical entertainment is provided until 23:00 am. For additional wedding reception entertainment, we suggest traditional dancers, a belly dancer, or fireworks.
You can request an open-bar that serves beverages, such as non-alcoholic refreshments, water, wine, beer, ouzo, and spirits (whiskey, vodka, gin, tequila, and rum). The open-bar list is selected by the nuptial couple and the hotel management, and consumption is unlimited until the beginning of the reception dinner. During the dinner, wine is served. The price of the open-bar is calculated by person and depends on the drinks selected, while the price of wine at dinner is calculated according to consumption.
We recommend planning your Santorini wedding reception as far in advance as possible, due to the popularity of the island as a wedding and honeymoon vacation.
