So, if you are looking for alternative wedding destinations in Greece, and avoid the tourist crowd of the islands of Santorini and Mykonos, you should keep reading this article.
Spetses is the definition of romance! Its whole aesthetic, with the combination of nature’s beauty, creates a breathtaking view for your ceremony. Spetses is an upscale affluent island in Attica, Greece it is included as one of the Saronic Islands and is an ideal destination for the most beautiful day of your life…

Milos island is a very special destination. Milos is an island in the Cyclades, shaped by its volcanic past to offer its visitors incredible beaches and exotic beauty, unlike any other island in Greece.
If you are considering alternative wedding destinations in Greece, Milos is THE ultimate destination. This island will help you experience the overall greek lifestyle to the full! So, it provides you with a plethora of activities that involve seeing and feeling the island like the locals do!
Antiparos island is located in the middle of the Aegean sea, right next to Paros island, and belongs to the Cyclades island group.
Despite being so close to Paros island, Antiparos is not so crowded but has a cosmopolitan character. It is an ideal greek island for laid-back holidays away from the hustle and the bustle!
Crete is the largest island in Greece and the fifth largest one in the Mediterranean Sea. Here, you can admire the remnants of brilliant civilizations, explore glorious beaches, impressive mountainscapes, fertile valleys, and steep gorges, and become part of the island’s rich gastronomic culture. Crete is, after all, a small universe teeming with beauties and treasures that you will probably need a lifetime to uncover! For that reason, I believe that it would set the most breathtaking scenery for your wedding video, and is one of the most alternative wedding destinations in Greece!
5. Porto Heli
If you prefer quiet and unique alternative wedding destinations in Greece, then Porto Heli is the one! It is located on the eastern side of the Peloponnese, and it is a small seaside town with a large port. Even though they aren’t a lot of activities to do there, the location is ideal to combine it with other destinations such as Spetses!
Moreover in Porto Heli, you can find one of the most breathtaking venues in Greece, the Amanzoe. So as far as I am concerned, this destination will be the ideal option for couples that prefer to spend this day without a crowdy background, but with the beauty of Peloponesse.
