Great news! My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 is being filmed

This was first posted on Nia Vardalos' instagram! I'm so excited to see the third movie and what the writers and actors have come up with. Of course, nothing is going to beat the original, which I absolutely love. But, it is nice to see Greeks on the big screen. What do you think? Are you excited?

Make sure you bring a dessert or small gift if youre invited to a Greek household

This is a very popular custom in Greece and you might come off as strange if you don't parcticiate. If you're invited to someones house, it is customary to bring dessert or a small gift to show your toes of appreciation for the fact that they're hosting you. It is likely that they will also offer you food, dessert or coffee as well. So don't be surprised if they do!

Why Greeks add -akis to everything

So many people have asked me why everything ends in "akis" and the truth is that it doesn't really! Akis is a suffix that is added to the end of greek words to make them "little" or more cute. It's also the ending of many Cretan last names. For example, dolma (grape leaves) is the official name but we just call them dolmadakia (akia is the plural of akis). You can add this to pretty much everything!

Here is some insight about Greek etiquette and body language

Etiquette and body language is extremely important in any culture, especially in Greek Culture. This doesn't meant that you need to follow everything and try to act "Greek" but I think its helpful to be aware of the expectations of others, especially so that you don't offend others. Let me know if you like this video and think its helpful in understanding some of the main components of Greek etiquette.

How to save money at your Greek wedding

Greek weddings can get pretty pricey, especially if you have a lot of guests and you're planning on getting married in the peak summer season. The best thing you can do is start planning your wedding early, so that you have time to shop around and see which vendors and venues will be the cheapest. Your wedding dress and suit will definitely be much cheaper if you buy it from Greece, so I do suggest that you get it there if you're able to get it done in time for the wedding. Outdoor venues also tend to be a lot cheaper indoor ballrooms. My last tip of advice, it's going to the destination that isn't so popular. If you want to get married in Santorini or Mykonos, your budget is definitely going to be much bigger in comparison to the mainland or Crete for example. Let me know if you have any more tips and if this helps!
