Planet Weddings welcomes Greece's Landmark Decision to Legalise Same-Sex Weddings

16 February 2024- Planet Weddings, leading AITO specialist in destination weddings to The Algarve, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta & Gozo, celebrates the recent decision by the Greek government to legalise same-sex marriages. This significant milestone marks a pivotal moment for equality and inclusivity in Greece's wedding and travel industry.

The Planet Weddings Greece programme features 13 destinations in Greece with 63 venues, and more are added each year. The operator is taking bookings from agents for 2024, 2025 and some venues for 2026.

As Greece emerges as a top destination for couples seeking a romantic and picturesque backdrop for their special day, the legalisation of same-sex weddings opens up new possibilities for LGBTQ+ couples from around the world. With its stunning landscapes, rich history, and vibrant culture, Greece has long been a sought-after location for weddings abroad.

"We are thrilled to see Greece taking this important step," said Mathilde Robert, Managing Director of Planet Weddings. "At Planet Weddings, we believe that every couple deserves the opportunity to celebrate their love and commitment in a meaningful and memorable way. With Greece's legalisation of same-sex marriages, we are excited to welcome LGBTQ+ couples to experience the beauty and charm of this enchanting destination."

“Greece continues to be a top choice for short-haul weddings abroad, a trend that will continue into 2025, thanks to this decision, the choice of wedding venue options, plus the pre and post wedding events that can also be organised to enhance the wedding day.” 

With over two decades of experience in organizing destination weddings to Greece, Planet Weddings specialises in creating bespoke and unforgettable experiences for couples from all walks of life. From idyllic beach ceremonies to romantic vineyard weddings, Planet Weddings offers a diverse range of venues and locations across Greece to suit every couple's preferences. 

"We are committed to providing all travel agents with the support and guidance they may need to help their clients plan their dream wedding abroad," added Mathilde Robert. "With Greece now offering legal recognition for same-sex marriages, we look forward to helping LGBTQ+ couples create memories that will last a lifetime."

Planet Weddings is dedicated to ensuring that every aspect of the wedding planning process is seamless and stress-free, from venue selection and legal documentation to travel arrangements and on-site coordination. With a team of experienced wedding specialists and local experts, Planet Weddings is poised to assist LGBTQ+ couples in bringing their dream wedding to life in Greece.
