6 Reasons Why A Destination Wedding Planner Is Essential For Your Wedding In Croatia


Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting times in a persons’ life. You want it to be a day to remember, surrounded by your nearest and dearest. If you love to travel and want to make your wedding day even more special, you might consider having a destination wedding. Croatia is one of those hidden gems in Europe that has some of the most beautiful locales, ideal for wedding celebrations. A great variety of wedding venues can be found here, but Croatia is still not as popular as Italy or France. It is small, charming and unique – perfect for your dream destination wedding.

Don’t let the idea of planning your destination wedding in Croatia be overwhelming. It is a long and sometimes complicated process, but with the right wedding planner by your side, you will enjoy every minute of it. There are many reasons why a wedding planner is essential for the success of your wedding abroad and we would like to explain some of the main ones:



The majority of couples planning their wedding are doing so for the first time in their lives. This is a completely new experience, one that requires the skills and connections that you probably do not have. If it also happens to be a destination wedding, in a country that you have never visited, or you’re unable to visit during the planning process, things might get even more complicated. Here is where a local wedding planner comes in.

They are professionals in their field who know how the planning process is handled. It is important to know in which order the vendors need to be booked as well as setting up the budget, planning the timeline, coordinating on the day and all of those little things in between you as a couple might not think of. The wedding planner is there to you all of the necessary tools to plan the many aspects of your destination wedding. The planner will guide you through the planning process and make it a memorable experience.



There are many things to consider when choosing a wedding venue. If the ceremony is due to take place on a different location (a church perhaps), then there are two and sometimes even three venues that need to be considered. A seasoned wedding planner will have a list of recommended venues that they have previously worked with or have vetted and can guarantee for their quality and level of service. Furthermore, they can much more quickly and easily research new locations according to the couple’s requirements.

Conducting site inspections with the couple or on behalf of the couple is something that every wedding planner has included as part of their services. All of this helps make the venue search faster, more efficient and even fun.



There are many vendors included in putting together a wedding and every couple wants the peace of mind of having the best and most reliable vendors working on their wedding day. There are many categories of vendors that participate in a wedding and in each category; there are many vendors to choose from. To put things into perspective, there are more than 200 wedding photographers in Croatia alone. Having to navigate through all what is on offer can be time-consuming and sometimes even frustrating.

A wedding planner saves time and helps with putting together a great team of vendors to execute the wedding day flawlessly. They would usually have a vendor base with reliable partners they worked with or can vouch for. Having vendor relationships is one of the greatest advantages of having a wedding planner on board for the wedding planning.



Having a wedding planner is like having a best friend to plan the wedding with. The friends and family of the couple might not be in the mood to listen to wedding talk 24/7, but a wedding planner will always be ready to listen. Since this is a very private and intimate moment in your lives, it is very important to choose a wedding planner that feels like the right fit and you can connect with. Wedding planners are great listeners and problem solving is one of their main skills, hence customer service is something you will never have any issues with when working with a wedding planner.



Planning a destination wedding has many challenges. The planning process often includes making many phone calls, combing through websites and reading reviews online to find the best vendors for the big day. A destination wedding planner can save you so much time, money, and effort. Taking advantage of the years of experience in the wedding industry as well as venue/vendor preferred lists, a wedding planner saves the time and helps you plan every aspect of the day. Good connections between the wedding planner and the local vendors can help greatly with cutting down costs as well as making sure you get the best possible service for their money.



A wedding planner confirms the final details of the wedding 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. This way, everyone due to participate in the wedding, from the venue, vendors, coordinators through the planner and the couple, are all on the same page with the timeline of the day. On the day of the wedding, the wedding planner would coordinate the setup, ensuring everything is according to the agreed-upon design, greet the vendors and the guests, and ensure that the entire timeline is followed through. Having the wedding planner run the events of the day gives you the peace of mind to enjoy your day with your guests.
