Mariliza Grammenou founded the event & wedding planning company Stefanotis Events in 2014, after a successful 10-year career in the business and finance field. She is a graduate of the American College with a BA in Economics from the University of Athens and a MA in Finance from the University of Piraeus. She has worked as a business consultant, specialized in the application of corporate, commercial and labor law. She succeeded her father in a well-known office of business consultants in Athens, which she maintains until today.
The change of her professional activities occurred in 2010 after a long trip in USA, where she had the chance to observe closely the wedding events industry, specifically in New York, Los Angeles and Hawaii. There, her artistic skills and her passion for visual arts, a legacy from her painter mother, were expressed. Her professionalism, aesthetics and attention to detail were the key elements that made one wedding leading to another. Today, the company undertakes events in Greece and abroad, which stand out for their impeccable organization and execution and for their creativity.
Stefanotis is a boutique event and wedding planning company, based in Athens, Greece. Our philosophy revolves around a very exclusive and highly specialized approach.

Our name “Stefanotis” is a combination of the Greek word “stefana” which means wedding wreaths and the flower stephanotis, which is the traditional, now and forever, bridal flower. Stephanotis is a little cluster of flower in the shape of star. It is the ultimate symbol of marital happiness and is considered good luck for the newlyweds. That is why it is chosen for the bridal bouquet, by royals, ever since the Victorian Age.
