GREECE While getting married in the Greek Isles might seem like an impossible dream, a Mykonos celebration in May to early June (or late September to early October) can be yours, thanks to the U.S. dollar’s recent gain against the euro. If you’re hosting 40 to 60 guests, Ostraco Suites is ideal. Perched on a hilltop, this 21-room boutique has a chapel and a pool terrace for the reception.
Bonus: The event fee of about $1,325 is waived if you book 20 rooms for at least three nights. A local Greek buff et reception starts at $66 per person. Rooms from $215. Alternately, invite up to 30 friends and family to join you on a weeklong Mediterranean cruise, and get married during a port call on Santorini with the Tie the Knot Ashore package from Princess Cruises.
One of its newest ships, Royal Princess, has itineraries that call on the island, where you’ll wed on a sea-view terrace or courtyard in the village of Oia (package from $5,000), then return to the ship to enjoy a two-hour luncheon or dinner reception with an open bar (from $46 to $55 per person). Seven-night cruises from $1,449 per person.
