Before the bride arrives to the chosen venue of the beach wedding we have a lot to do. There are official and obligatory tasks and there are more pleasant decisions to make. We are there for our brides to ensure the wedding will be an unforgettable experience.
1.One of the most important tasks is to choose the venue: which Croatian city, beach or old town is the closest to your ideas? Once we know the location we will find you the right accommodation and venue that best fits both your budget and ideas. If needed, we can also organize the travel to the location.
2.The Croatian municipalities have their own regulations regarding which official documents they require for the wedding. We take care of all the preliminary legal matters and check if all the documents needed are acquired so that our brides don’t have to travel to Croatia for this before the wedding. We also take care of the official translation of these documents if required so. These translated documents have to be presented to the municipality usually one day prior to the ceremony.
3.The official ceremony is either held in the city hall in the presence of an interpreter, or if needed the notary goes to the site; either to the beach or to the spectacular sea view terrace. The documents received after the wedding will be acknowledged by the authorities of your country of origin too.
4.the further tasks depend on the wishes of the bride. From the bouquet, the decoration to the makeup and hairstyle everything is available. Our photographers make wonderful images of the unforgettable event. The costs of the services are usually the same as in any other Eastern European countries, sometimes even lower, since wedding organization in Croatia is not a defined industry yet, therefore the services are still more special and people- oriented.
The documents needed for the wedding may vary from region to region, but the followings are the must-haves:
• birth certificate
• ID card
• address card
• declaration of marriage intent
• marital status certificate
The documents provided for a Croatian wedding must not be older than 3 months and must be translated and certified by an official translator office or official translator. Regulations may differ from country to country even within the European Union. Please, contact us for more information!
If the couple doesn’t speak Croatian, an interpreter must be present at the ceremony.
If necessary, we help you to translate every document, and we can also recommend interpreters all around Croatia.
LAWS AND NATURALIZATION
After the ceremony the Croatian Registry Office issues the certificates of the marriage, which must be naturalised to be acknowledged by your home country. The received document must be translated and verified by an official translator office or official translator and must be handed in to the municipality of your country. As emphasized above this may vary from country to country even inside the EU. Please, contact us for more information!

The Traditional Croatian wedding
These days in Croatia it’ the couple who decide about the proposal and after making the decision, they announce it to the family. However, there’s still a living tradition about asking permission from the woman’s father before proposing to her, paying respect to the bride’s family and the ancient traditions. The dinner after the proposal is almost like a wedding. The dowry nowadays is usually furniture, a car or a house.
After the proposal party, the couple starts to plan their wedding immediately. The invitation of the guests must be done personally, the engaged couple visit them even if they’re living in distant locations. During these visits, the groom carries a bottle of rakija in a holder attached to a thick leather strap. According to the tradition he had to drink with every guest.
