BRIEF HISTORY OF MYKONOS
Let’s take a quick look at the past and present-day history of Mykonos!
Historians and archaeologists believe that Mykonos was first established by the Ionians in the 11th century. Mykonos was a member of the Delian Alliance, as it had a very close relationship with its neighbor Delos. This alliance marked the beginning of a prosperous time for Mykonos, which would end with the fall of Delos.
Moving forward in time, the island had consistently low agricultural yields. As a result, the island became relatively poor and faded into anonymity.
The Roman Empire would eventually find its way in Mykonos, followed by the Byzantines and Venetians. In fact, the island was occupied by several groups, from pirate forces to Russians.
Mykonos would only return to Greek hands at the beginning of the Greek revolution in 1821. Despite the ongoing war efforts that drained resources, the island managed to prosper. Its strategic location would make it an important trade hub and foreshadow future riches.
How then did Mykonos manage to transform from a trade hub into a world- known cosmopolitan location? How did it become a destination wedding location resulting in various beautiful Mykonos wedding types?
The contemporary history and characteristics of Mykonos are world-known. It is an island in Greece with intense nightlife, lifestyle and huge parties.
Following the anonymity that befell the island once again after the war, the archaeological findings of Mykonos would once again bring it to the forefront. These findings would attract artists, politicians, and others from around the world. The influx of celebrity artists, politicians, and high-income individuals would quickly register Mykonos as a “high-class” location.
The island residents, sensing a great opportunity for transformation, would go on to establish the appropriate venues and businesses to account for more premium tastes.
In conclusion, this Mykonos to its state today. A high-class destination, where every Mykonos wedding is a luxurious jewel.
HIRING A GREEK WEDDING PLANNER FOR A MYKONOS WEDDING
An important question you should ask is the following: Do I really need a wedding planner for a destination wedding?
Well, the answer comes down to you. For instance, do you value having great control over every wedding detail for your Mykonos wedding? Making sure everything gets done in time? Reducing unexpected surprises to a minimum?
Do you want to have your budget under control?
First, wedding planning is a huge time commitment with immense responsibility. Having work and family obligations places great stress on the wedding planning process. The pressure furthermore increases when a lack of experience comes into play. For example, your budget spikes because you underestimated the cost of a venue. Or the venue quote given to you did not contain the sound & lighting company.
All in all, the reality of the situation is that couples often decide to forego the wedding planner’s fee. They take it upon themselves to plan a magnificent wedding. More often than not this backfire.
TRAVELING TO MYKONOS
Mykonos has an airport conveniently located just a few kilometres away from the island’s capital.
During peak season, the International Airport of Athens schedules several daily flights to Mykonos. In recent times, several EU countries have added direct flights to Mykonos Airport.
This is by far the easiest way to reach the island.
If you prefer to avoid heavy travel and don’t mind the extra cost, then you can organize flights for you and your guests. Better yet, you can instruct your Greek wedding planner to initiate some preliminary research on available flights close to your wedding date.
This is the second, and most common way to travel to Mykonos. Additionally, this is the least expensive way to reach the island for your Mykonos wedding. During peak seasons there will be several ferries that transport visitors to the island.
On average, this is an approximately 4.5-hour trip so plan accordingly. Make sure that you organize the relevant vehicle transportation to your hotel. Additionally, if you’ve organized meetings with your wedding professionals, make sure to include potential delays.
All in all, this is the least expensive way to travel to Mykonos and the only way if you plan to bring a vehicle with you. If you have excessive luggage, it is good to travel by ship to avoid paying extra plane luggage costs.
If you prefer extra privacy, consult your wedding planner regarding the rental of a private plane or yacht charter. This way you can combine your luxurious Mykonos wedding with a mini-trip around the Aegean.
EXPLORING THE ISLAND
Now that you’ve reached the island, its time to explore it.
You’ve already planned (hopefully) for in-island transportation vehicles for you and your guests. Available transportation options include shuttles, taxis, car & bike rentals as well as bicycles for shorter distances.
After you and your guests deposit your luggage in one of the many accommodation options available in Mykonos its time to explore a few areas.
Note that there are several “water” taxis that you can take. These are boats that travel between beaches, most notably Platis Gialos and Ornos.

Little Venice has kept its unique Venetian influence, transforming many of the buildings into bars and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy the excellent modern service and great view in older structures. In fact, there are even several rooftops and terraces where visitors can observe the sunset and take memorable photographs.
All in all, it is an excellent area to immerse yourself in the past. If you find yourself thirsty for more ancient Greek immersion, there are plenty of museums nearby. After all, why not experience Greece as much as possible since you’re here for a destination wedding?
A look into ancient history for a Mykonos wedding
Visiting a museum is probably not the first thing in your mind when it comes to a destination wedding. However, it’s a shame not to experience the traditional/cultural side of Greece since you’re here.
After all a Mykonos wedding, like all weddings, is one of the most ancient practices in human history.
Conveniently located in the Old Port within Chora, the museum was founded in 1902. The layout of the museum contains a courtyard and six distinct exhibition rooms.
