Can anyone give some advice for what food is best for weddings? I’m getting married in Greece this summer and I want the wedding to pretty traditional in some senses. I’m not Greek, but I love the food and culture and want to make it a part of my wedding.

Some of the best authentic Greek foods that I have eaten at a Greek wedding have been (in no particular order!):
Tiropita, Spanakopita, Greek style steak, Greek salad (many different types) and of course Greek style roasted Lamb!

Congrats! If you want the environment to be elegant but traditional, I would suggest lots of traditional meze as appetizers and a plated dinner for the main course. It's a perfect balance! Some meze favorites: Spanakopita, tiropitakia, meatballs, dolmades, marinated olives, grilled octopus & calamari!

If you want to make the wedding traditional and fun :), I would recommend spit roasted lamb or chicken. It’s always so fun when people go all out and roast meat! If you’re not Greek, then some of your guests might not be used to seeing whole animals roasted outside, but it would be a great moment to try something new and get involved in the culture.

I vote for serving kourabedies - the ultimate celebratory dessert!

I would suggest serving some traditional Greek wines, your guests will appreciate it and it's a great way to buy local when you're there.

Congrats! I got married to a Belgian guy in 2019 (I’m Greek) in Greece and the food that he (we) chose was mostly Greek. Eggplant with meat, dolmadakia, pork and chicken skewers, Greek salad, tzatziki amongst other delicious dishes that I didn’t try (since the hubby decided to eat my food as well as his 😝 .!). Still though it was great! I would also add different types of pitas (feta cheese pie, spinach pie etc). As far as the wine goes, our Belgian and British friends loved it (one of them drunk 6 bottles..!).
enjoy the special day!

I am a non-Greek and I don’t know how to choose Godparents

I am six months pregnant and I'm married to a Greek guy and we've been having lots of discussion about Godparents. I'm not Greek so I don't know too much about Godparents and I've never had any. Could anyone give me some advice on how to choose Godparents? I’m so lost!!

How are you celebrating Greek Independence Day this year?

There won't be any parades :( so I'm looking for fun ways to keep the Greek spirit alive, any tips?

What are some old Easter traditions?

I'm curious...are there any older Easter traditions that we don't practice anymore? Has Easter always been celebrated with the lamb, Anastasi and egg cracking?
