There must be a huge excitement the moment you realise you are getting married. First things first, you have chosen the destination – Croatia. And then goes the funny part, you need to organise and plan your intimate wedding in Croatia. You can hire a wedding planner, which is something we advise when planning an event with 10-50 guests in a foreign country. Even with your planner, you still have to decide between many options.
While you can choose another wedding gown in the last minute or ditch the flowers to something else, some things need to be selected carefully, in advance, and can not be skipped: for example, your intimate wedding venue.
Finding the perfect venue in Croatia is not easy, we know it. There are many beautiful places and it is hard to make the final choice. That is why you might find useful insider tips. So here they are, our selected wedding venues in Croatia. (note: all of them are equally dear to us, so if something is on the last place does not mean it is less beautiful)
