Lefkas Weddings Planning Tips: Add some Greek Traditions to your day

Having chosen to get married in Greece we thought you might like to add some Greek traditions to your special day!

Pomegranate – This fruit is cherished in Greece as a symbol of joyous times and good fortune, as well as of fertility and prosperity. You will find the fruit prominent at weddings and christenings. Decorate your favour ribbons with a charm version or give a tiny pomegranate to your guests as a good luck gift.

Evil Eye Good Luck Charms – You will see these charms all over Greece on key rings, jewellery and hanging over door ways. It stares back at the world to ward off the evil spirits and keep you safe from the ‘bad eye’ known as ‘mati’ in Greek. These days you can find them in more colours as well as the traditional blue. Add them to your favours or give as gifts.
