Make Croatia Your Perfect Place for Your Wedding Day

Many couples decide as soon as they get engaged that a destination wedding is the right choice for them.

There are many reasons why a destination wedding is desirable. For one it is a lot simpler to plan your wedding – especially if you choose to hire a wedding planner to do everything for you! Two, it is also a lot more convenient to have a destination wedding than to plan your wedding at home for 400 to 500 guests just to please your parents and not to offend anybody.

Three, the great thing about a destination wedding is that those that accept your destination wedding invitation are people who are most closest to you and people who you really WANT to attend your wedding.

Finally, having a destination wedding is a lot more relaxing and your guests will love you for choosing a fun destination they will want to explore before and/or after your wedding.

Croatia was just named as one of top 3 destinations to honeymoon in 2016 by Harper Bazaar.

Why you should choose Croatia as your wedding destination!

Not only does Croatia have a vast number of natural beauties, it is surrounded by breathtaking scenery and historical monuments. It has a very mild Mediterranean climate and a long Adriatic coastline that you and your guests will love to explore. Every year it is growing in popularity and ever since Croatia became a member of the European Union it has become a more accessible destination by plane, car, train and boat.

Croatia is a very romantic destination.  It has so many beautiful cities and islands that have been attracting young people and couples all over the world.

It has some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world! Zadar, for example, is famous for its beautiful sunsets. Alfred Hitchcock has once said “Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world, more beautiful than the one in Key West, in Florida”.
