~Our Renewals~ After a crazy month and things have slowed down a bit, hubby and I are gettin...
We're having our wedding reception at one of our favourite tavernas in Corfu. The taverna is a traditional Greek Taverna called Taverna Agni in Agni Bay on the North East Coast of Corfu.
We will be having traditional Greek mezes for our wedding meal and some of our favourite dishes off the menu at the Taverna, washed down with champagne and unlimited beers, wines and soft drinks.
I didn't want too much blue going on at the wedding so have introduced some gold for the wedding reception. I think gold and white/cream is quite traditional Greek and ties in nicely with the rustic open taverna which is situated just a few metres from the shore. We're having gold chair sashes tied around the rustic wooden & rattan chairs (no white chair covers) and gold organza favor bags with 5 white sugared almonds in each representing health, wealth, happiness, fertility & long life as favors. We are also offering miniture bottles of Ouzo as favors.
The place settings will be large pebbles found on the beach with each guests name written on. They will cost us nothing and we will have fun collecting the pebbles on the beach in the days leading up to the wedding.
We will be using flowers such as hydrangeas and peonies in small square vases and goldfish bowl type vases to decorate the tables.
We are not hiring a band or DJ for our wedding music as we don't think it fits in with the traditional laid back theme so we'll be making lots of cds with all kinds of music to play all day in the background. We'll be having traditional Greek music, Greek wedding/love songs, our favourite love songs, and favourite pop songs etc as the evening goes on. We have asked that our guests request a song to be played at the wedding on their RSVP cards so I'm sure we will end up with a whole mixture of music from different eras.
Our wedding song is "Wherever you Will Go" by The Calling.
