7 things to consider when choosing your Croatia wedding venue

Here are all the tips you need to consider to choose a wedding venue you will love.

– Talk to your wedding planner

Try to get as much input from your wedding planner. Local planners’ inputs can save you time and money so make sure to get as much information as possible.

– Decide on a general location/destination

Picking your wedding location is necessary before selecting your wedding venue. Consider all other elements, such as; distance, flight schedule, leisure activities in a destination, and accommodation options….

– Define your style and vision

Defining your wedding vision is one of the most important steps in wedding planning. Do you have it confirmed? Choose a venue that fits your vision and theme – everything gets easier after that part!

– Know your budget 

Explore different options. Get pricing and other relevant info. Take a few venues into consideration and compare. Furthermore, take your time and re-evaluate the process.

– Discuss the venue’s capacity and other relevant info

Every wedding venue has a capacity for a different setting – make sure you have information on how many guests can be seated for your preferred seating style. Also, is there a backup secured in case of a bad weather scenario? Is there a curfew? Are there any other limitations you should be aware of? Make sure you get answers to all your questions as you do not want any surprises near the wedding date.

– Discuss catering options 

Who is the site’s preferred caterer? Are there any limitations? Can you bring a caterer of your choice? Ask questions. 

– Plan a site inspection 

Images and videos from past weddings at your preferred wedding venue can help you visualize your special day, however, we always recommend planning a site inspection. You will be able to get a feel for the venue, which cannot be done online. A live site inspection can make a big difference – if circumstances allow you, try to plan your visit to the destination.

Chic Croatia tips and recommendations

– Keep in mind that venue selection is an integral part of wedding planning. Your Croatia wedding venue plays a crucial role in setting your overall wedding vibe. It can make a big difference. Next, besides the mentioned Croatia wedding venues, there are many other breathtaking venues that we have within our portfolio. Contact us today for a full list of venues available.

– Make sure to have a backup plan secured. Besides the fact that May to September is usually sunny and warm, the weather is the only thing that cannot be controlled on your wedding day. Have a backup secured and avoid stress.

– Have a meeting with the property’s sales or operational manager. A venue’s manager is usually in charge of communicating all the details to the staff and oversees everything so establishing a strong contact is highly recommended.

– If you do not have time to do a site inspection, ask your planner to do a live tour of the venue. This way, you’ll be able to feel the venue’s atmosphere.

– Ask for the time it takes you from your ceremony venue to your reception venue. No surprises allowed!

– Take your planner’s advice but also, but do not forget to trust your gut as well.
