Help....wedding venue suggestions in Croatia please?????

Hi

I am helping my friend investigate a wedding abroad and she has her heart set on Croatia. Neither of us have ever been to Croatia so I am looking for some advice on potential venues in the region. She is keen to find somewhere that is not a party resort but has plenty of nice restaurants, bars and is reasonably busy with plenty of accomodation options for her wedding guests and suitable for families and couples. She is open to ideas such as private island wedding, private villa wedding, beachfront weddings etc as long as it is beautiful and the perfect setting for her big day'. She 50 guaranteed guests that may rise up to 80 once invites are sent out. The maximum budget will be £7000..... Please help with any ideas or suggestions!

Kind regards

What time of year? In July or August would be madness.

Out of main season, everything is possible.

She can have wedding in 4000 years old city in Osor (nearby are numerous hotels in Mali Losinj and Cres

or in the city on the cliff - Lubenice with population of just a few people...

July and August are really crowded, especially in most popular destinations like Hvar and Dubrovnik. Think about something special, out of the center.

That is nowhere close to a decent budget and it can only be something improvised on a beach or on some location away from most popular destinations. Catering for that period will hardly be bellow 80 - 100 E per person alone as it is peak season and no one wants to bother with such a big order for small money...

hi, I am getting married in June in Dubrovnik, I am using a lady called Ivana at Dubrovnik design who was recommended to me via completely croatia.... I work in the travel industry and they too where recommended to me.

I am getting married at the Palm terrace at the excelsior (would be lovely if 50/80 guests there for dinner!) and then we are having dinner at the villa Ruza as there are only 10 of us going!

hope that helps

I am looking to get married in Croatia. Any ideas on venues? We have considered the villa Argentina and excelsior. They look nice but don't have the wow factor...

Your right the hotel excelsior doesn't if your looking at the one venue for the whole day but its palm terrace for just the ceremony or the dinner would be lovely because of the location with Dubrovnik in the background. What about one of the churches in city Center or one of the islands? 86 days to go till mine and I'm super excited !!!
