Athens Ledra Marriott Hotel :-
With a spectacular view overlooking the Acropolis, the Athens Ledra Marriott is minutes from the Parthenon and the Port of Piraeus for a quick getaway to the Greek islands. From our central Athens Greece hotel, you can stroll to cafes, shops and winding streets of the famous Plaka. We're the only city hotel that offers double-double rooms with spacious accommodations that include mini-bar, safe, individual climate control, high-speed Internet and luxurious bedding. Enjoy great amenities at our hotel - take a dip and enjoy the view from our seasonal rooftop pool, stay fit at our 24-hour health club, and relax with a cocktail or espresso while listening to live music in our lounge. After meetings or sightseeing, enjoy a Mediterranean/Greek dinner and Sunday brunch at Zephyros Restaurant and Polynesian cuisine at Kona Kai, which is popular with the locals and also features a sushi bar. When planning a business or social event, the Marriott hotel in Greece creates magical moments indoors or on the rooftop terrace


Wedding Trivia:
VEIL
Brightly colored veils were worn in ancient times in many parts of the world and were considered a protection against evil spirits Greek and Roman brides for yellow or red veils (representing fire) to ward off evil spirits and demons. At one time, Roman brides were completely covered with a red veil for protection. In early European history, with the advent of arranged marriages veils served another purpose - to prevent the groom from seeing the brides' face till after the ceremony was over. Brides began to wear opaque yellow veils. Not only could the groom not see in, the bride could not see out! Therefore, the father of the bride had to escort her down the aisle and literally give the bride to the groom. Nellie Custis, the daughter of Martha Washington, is credited with wearing the first lace veil.
