If you are planning your wedding, you surely felt an urge to sit on the plane and run away – some to avoid the stress, and others to make their perfect destination wedding.
With more and more couples planning their wedding abroad, a great number of websites publish useful lists to make it easier for them to choose their wedding destination. One of them is Ryanair, which published a list of 10 amazing wedding destinations in Europe.
Surprised or not, one of them is Croatia! They use a recommendation by Helen Pye from Hitched.co.uk to explain why you should have your perfect wedding in our country.
-Crammed with beaches and enchanting seaside towns, wild mountains and towering pine forests, and with hundreds of islands waiting to be explored just a hop away, Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is one of Europe’s hidden gems for destination weddings.
Any couple torn between a beach or city destination to say ‘I do’ will find their answer here. Hugging the entire coastline are ancient walled towns, rich in romance and good wine. The hub of this is the trendy city of Split, nestled at the foot of the Marjan Hill, which offers as many secluded spots to tie the knot as nearby islands to hop.
Each island has its own special charm: Brac is best known for its postcard-perfect white beaches and hidden coves, while couples looking for glitz and ritz can do no better than the A-list favourite Hvar, where you’ll find a great party at every turn.
But the crowning jewel is the Medieval city of Dubrovnik at the southern tip of Dalmatia. From your first glimpse of the town’s terracotta rooftops (instantly recognisable as the real-life location of King’s Landing in Game of Thrones) to the quaint cobbled alleyways leading to the port, this breathtaking city is unrivalled as a wedding destination and an unforgettable one for wedding photos. Few places offer such atmosphere, beauty and romance just a 2.5-hour flight from the UK – Pye writes.
Some of the other destinations are the Amalfi Coast, Santorini, the Algarve… To see the full list click here.
