How We Work
Transparency, communication and commitment are all part of our work ethic at Make Happy Memories and every event matters.
If you have a special request, we will make it happen. If you have a small budget, we can work with it and if you have a range of requirements, we will accommodate them. We’re always happy to build a personalised selection of services around your event needs, and we’re proud to cater for budgets big and small.
We understand that special events and weddings are rare and momentous occasions and making it as smooth and stress-free as possible for you, is our absolute priority.
We ensure we are available to discuss your requirements and plans in whichever way suits you – from FaceTime to Skype to email or WhatsApp, we believe projects run more smoothly when you have direct access to us. Got a question? Ask us. Need something changed? Tell us and it shall be done.
Wedding and event planning can be very stressful, which takes away from the beauty of this special period of your life. That’s why we make it our priority to have absolute clarity with you so you can feel in control, and more relaxed.
How this works in practice? You’ll have access to a shared time plan so you can see all priorities, and don’t have to worry about whether or not something is in hand – at a glance you’ll be able to see.
We provide a budget frame and allocate it in a way that maximises the value of what matters most to you, without reducing the quality of the overall event.
Making your fantasies a reality is important to us, which is why we invest a lot of time getting to know you as a couple or a client, so we can understand your individual style and the things which matter to you most.
You are unique, so your event should feel unequivocally ‘you’.
We have a host of questionnaires and in-house visual quizzes that we’ll use to build your taste profile.
You can count on us to come up with propositions for a theme or design concept that will exceed your expectations and make you even more excited for the big day to arrive.
The Perfect Venue
We can also arrange virtual tours via video calls and Skype so you can make a decision with all the information you need.
Amazing events are made up of hundreds of elements which all have to work together perfectly. We have extensive contacts in various industries, and know trusted suppliers to suit any occasion.
We’ll take care of helping you choose the right suppliers, and organising the part they play.

We make sure all the moving parts work together in harmony and on schedule. What’s more, we’ll help you achieve the very best competitive quotes and stay on budget.
We offer a seamless guest list management service, send invitations, track confirmations, assist with seating arrangements and extend our services to booking hotels and transport for guests. We’re happy to inform guests of local attractions and for destination weddings, we’ll make sure your invitees experience the famous Greek warmth and hospitality.
When the day of your wedding or event arrives, it truly is your time to relax and enjoy. We will be there on site, at every step of the way so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
We take care of Production and Event-Flow, and our experienced coordinator team will be the invisible presence in the background, during the ceremony, reception and the party, making sure that everything stays on track. And should anything unexpected happen, we’ll be there to smooth things over immediately. In a nutshell, you can concentrate on having an amazing time and leave everything else to us.
Most weddings or parties in Greece keep going until dawn, and after the event, we want you to be able to enjoy your honeymoon or holiday as much as possible.
That’s why you can expect us to take care of everything post-event related. From thank you cards to photo-albums to organising collections and deliveries with vendors, we have it covered.
Throughout the whole process, we make use of the latest technology to make sure communication and planning is as easy and efficient as possible.
Inspiration Gallery Boards are used to share our ideas and communicate with visual materials, while time-planning tools with shared calendars, gantt-diagrams and other capabilities mean project-management is smooth as silk.
We have the latest budgeting software to track accounting and payments and use visual questionnaires to help us outline your style and taste to help us with the creative concepts for your event.
We will share 3D views of the floor plan and seating arrangements and we will even create an event website so you can share your story and enable your guests to upload and share their own photos and messages about the event.
What’s more, we have some very exciting new tech launching in 2018 that will take your destination wedding planning experience to the next level. Watch this space!
