It's gonna be pretty hot, so it's best to wear a shirt, preferable short-sleeved and a nice pair of pants. Don't forget your sunglasses. Since it's a wedding your clothes should preferaly be light coloured. A white shirt and black pants, or beige would be great. About the gift, an electric appliance is always useful. Have a great time!

No need to boast, I'm sure you think you're HOT - no need for us to know that. :rolleyes:

I'm joking. :p

Well, you can dump the tie and jacket and still look appropriate I guess. :)

That's so sweet! You're making me feel even more proud of my country! Don't forget your bathing suit and your sun block! And a heat wave is about to come to Greece, so bring your lightest clothes with you, but also a jacket or two for the chilly nights! Eat souvlaki, drink ouzo or tsipouro, if you're into strong, clean alcohol and have a great time!

I'm in Crete at the moment, although I go home to the UK tomorrow which is the most depressing thing I have experienced this year... if I could I would not go back home ever, love it here so much!:(

Am hoping to move over here soon... Once I learn how to drive I will be looking for a job and an apartment... any Cretians on here, you're help would be truly appreciated!;)

The temperature is 35 degrees at the mo, so is a bit too hot for me and I'm in my bikini, so I could not imagine how hot it would be to attend a wedding in this weather... I spose it would have to be airy light clothing and just make sure you stay in the shade!

Hope you have a great time!:)

No I just come here alot... been coming to Crete twice a year for the last 4 years, and I never get sick of it, hence looking for a job and a place out here... thinking tour guide is the way to go work wise for me as I know most of the sites and museums now like the back of my hand; plus my archaeology degree and my "know-it-all" attitude about Greek archaeology would make me good at the job, lol!:p

I do actually get mistaken for Greek as I'm quite dark (my dad's the same) but I have Anglo Saxon origins... although there might be some Italian on my dad's side somewhere down the line...:rolleyes:
