If you’ve decided to head to Dubrovnik for your wedding, you couldn’t have picked a more picturesque location. The range of backdrops, from the architectural city walls to the wide expanse of ocean, provide the perfect setting for a wedding to remember.
Dubrovnik is the number 1 tourist destination in Croatia, climbing in popularity since Game of Thrones began its filming there. The old town is small and peaceful, particularly outside of prime tourist season (May-June, September-October), though you’ll find May to October offer the warmest climates. Dubrovnik has a number of beautiful ornate churches dotted between its medieval walls, and you’ll find that 95% of the wedding venues have incredible views of the Adriatic Sea, which they make the most of with their dining experiences and photo opportunities.
Many couples choose to host a civil ceremony, opting for an outdoor celebration with panoramic views – and who can blame them! You can wed on a magnificent hilltop overlooking the town, have a romantic and relaxed wedding on the small island of Lokrum, or have a rooftop reception in a luxury hotel with all your needs catered for. Sun Gardens Dubrovnik is the perfect example – they have a selection of areas around the hotel for couples to choose from, all with stunning views not to be missed.
We would highly recommend hiring a wedding planner for your wedding in Dubrovnik, particularly a local one. They have the knowledge and expertise of the area, plus can help with organising all the necessary paperwork to ensure you can enjoy your time leading up to the wedding as well as during your stay.
