Dear Matea and Ines
It’s been over a week now since the wedding and I think I’ve finally come back down to earth. I’ve written a Facebook review, but in all honesty I don’t believe I will ever be able to find the words to truly explain how thankful we are, and how fantastic you are. It was wonderful; from start to finish. The decorations were perfect, the venues looked stunning and the boat trip, well how you managed to get the sun to set at that particular location is a triumph and a half ;-). Every single guest said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to and a few said it was better than their own, which made me smile. We received constant thanks and well wishes for days afterwards, it was simply perfect.
Please could you pass on our thanks to Barbara and Anna for hair and make up, and Katija and her husband for the photography. They were amazing; I am so excited about the pictures, literally cannot wait!!!!
And a particular thank you from my husband (I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to saying that) for keeping the video a secret and making it possible for him to play it at the reception. If you’d still like to see it, I can send via dropbox if you have an account? The file is too large for email so if you’ve got in mind an alternative way of sharing it with you, let me know.
Look forward to hearing from you
Dearest Ines, Matea, Dean, Jasna, Barbara & The Taliri Band,
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for our amazing wedding.
Dean – How on earth are your photos coming through this quickly!? You have done an incredible job and we are thrilled with them. Thanks for getting a few through straight away so friends and family who weren’t at the wedding could see how amazing it turned out! You know exactly what you are doing and are so efficient and this is not only from me but many guests at the wedding to. Can’t wait to see all the final photos! Thank you.
Jasna – We spent such a lovely afternoon with you! It was so lovely meeting you and all your emails up to the big day made me feel so excited and I knew myself and my bridal party were in such good hands. Thank you.
Barbara – I was blown away by your skills. You knew exactly what you were doing and breezed through the morning getting everyone’s hair and make up done not only quickly, but to exactly how I wanted. Also thank you for understanding when Mum was a bit late! Thank you.
Taliri Band – You guys are absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!! The way the music flowed throughout the evening – even our fathers who NEVER dance were up dancing! That was so cool! Thank you for learning Mardy Bum. The beautiful music whilst eating dinner was perfect (love Norah Jones!!!) And then as it amped up – everything was spot on. Thank you.
Ines & Matea – You guys are one and a million. I can’t believe a simple google search over 2 years ago led me to you. It is so daunting trying to organise an overseas wedding where the language isn’t out first language. I had no preconceived ideas of what to expect but you blew us out of the water. Your contact is always professional but relaxed and personal, nothing too difficult, your flexible, so friendly and so organsied. The decoration and flowers turned out perfect – just as I envisioned, venue and food was INSANE, even to the nightclub at the end, night at the hotel and your gorgeous gift I can’t wait to use in New Zealand – it was all AMAZING. I honestly think everyone at the wedding also commented on how amazing everything flowed and the atmosphere they were a part of.
I really can’t thank you all enough for being so amazing. We had the best day and so did all our guests.
Love Marie & Mike
Hi Matea, Ines,
I am back from my honeymoon now and first day back in the office today 😞
First of all I just wanted to thank you both so much for all of your hard work and dedication to our wedding day. Everything was perfect and we are over the moon with how smooth the whole day went, not to mention the decoration which was on point!
So glad we have professionals such as you to help pull it off.
Thank you also for your kind gifts, so generous.
I will be sending a thank you card and gift to your address Ines for the both of you.
This message is long overdue and we truly are apologetic for not sending it sooner as today makes our 4 month anniversary to the day! We would like to thank again the entire Dubrovnik Event team and it’s vendors for a phenomenal job in ensuring that all of our requests, no matter how complicated, were addressed with superior customer service standards.
We would be lying to you if we didn’t mention that at times during the planning process, we would look at each other and think that we are utterly crazy to plan a wedding on the other side of the world, in a country neither of us has visited before, and putting our trust in the hands of a person we never met. Well, the saying “the greater the risk the greater the reward” couldn’t hold more true in this case. Our wedding has absolutely exceeded all expectations and we have you and Matea to thank for that. From the DJ, the food, the venues, to the charismatic Dean; everything that you have put together was a smashing success.
We will always think of you whenever we look at our wedding pictures and reminisce about our big day. Thank you for being a part of it, we were truly blessed to have you as our wedding planner.
In conclusion, we would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas with all the success, health, and happiness in the world.
Margret and Mehdi
Thank you Matea and Ines for making our day so perfect! After 2 years of planning, I wouldn’t have changed anything. You both did a great job making our vision a reality and were so helpful throughout the entire process. The wedding day was stress free as Matea was there to solve any issues and keep the day on track. I honestly can’t imagine the day going so smoothly without you! Thank you so much for all the memories you help created 🙂 xx
We can’t thank you enough for all you did to organise the most perfect wedding for us. Everyday surpassed our expectations. So many of our guests have said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and that no other wedding will top it.
We honestly can’t get over how fantastic it was. Thank you for all your hard work, and to Marin, Matea and the rest of your team. (I’ve forgotten the name of the lovely blonde lady helping at the events – she was great!).
We will leave you the most wonderful review on Facebook.
Please keep in touch! And if you and the family are ever in London, please let us know.
Sabina & Sachin
I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Ines & Matea for planning the most spectacular day! Every single detail was excellent. Flowers beautiful, entertainment great, photographers professional. Matea ensured everything ran smoothly and seamlessly whilst my husband and I had the time of our lives with ZERO stress! The entire experience exceeded my every expectation.
Matea & Ines are superb at their jobs and extremely passionate ladies who are efficient and organised. I would recommend Dubrovnik Event to anyone considering getting married in this beautiful city/country.
Once again thank you, we are forever greatful and will treasure our special day forever. I can’t wait for the photos!!

Hi Ines, Matea & Marin!
It’s hard to know where to start so I’m going to totally freestyle. Obviously, the two most fitting words I can think of are ‘thank you’ – words you must hear many times a day but we really and truly mean it. Arun and I are so grateful to have had you plan our wedding (and the day before and after) and ensure each day played out seamlessly. After our first contact with you, we knew immediately that we trusted you and of course you did it, you went beyond our expectations and created the perfect setting for memories that will live in our hearts for ever. It’s slightly weird starting a day and not wedding planning with you anymore – missing your incredible energy already and really looking forward to staying in touch.
Plus, we can’t wait to share all the professional photos with you. And speaking of professional, all of the people you put us in touch with were the perfect fit for a naturally fun and uplifting experience – Jasna, Dube, Barbara, Mihoci team, Sebastian and the wonderful staff at the Palace, La Bodega and Copacabana. Even the driver who took us to Old Town for our photo shoot was great!
Saying thank you just doesn’t seem like enough! I should say hvala!
So much love,
Simmy and Arun x
Suky, Arun’s mum:
Today is my first day back at work after Arun and Sim’s wedding in Dubrovnik,
Can I just say that both of you are absolutely amazing and this was the most unforgettable experience … our family enjoyed every minute of the wedding and I cannot thankyou enough and thanks for putting up with me and my numerous annoying emails,
Thanks again and I will be sad not to email you anymore x
My dearest dearest Ines and Matea.
Where do I begin?
First of all, let me apologize for sending this email a few days later than the wedding.
I just got some free and quiet time after the wedding, and after getting back from the honeymoon.
On behalf of myself, Fadi, our families and loved ones I would like to first of all congratulate you and Matea and every Dubrovnikevent member on your professionalism and your miraculous approach towards our wedding. Fadi and I cannot describe you how much we enjoyed our wedding weekend. And this is all thanks to you guys. Everything from A to Z was super organized, super well managed and thought of. We were so happy that it turned out to be a great success, even better than we have imagined and more than we were expecting. Everyone congratulated us on this beautiful wedding and on choosing DubrovnikEvent as our planner.
Let me start from the pre-wedding white night. Please thank Klarisa for their amazing service. I got a lot of positive remarks on the food that it was incredible. And Katija our photographer, she was super cute and we can’t wait for her photos.
During the wedding day. I will start with Dubra and Barbara. Those two! What a great combination! Very friendly and very talented. Everyone was so happy with their looks, especially me. My hair and makeup, I couldn’t possibly dream of a better way to look on my wedding day.
David Mihoci and his team! They master everything. They are so zen and calm that it made us so assured. We loved it! They know exactly what they’re doing and we can’t wait for their photos and video to come out. I hope that won’t be very late though!
When I was leaving Villa Sheherezade heading to the Church. I saw Ivana setting up the tables in the garden. I noticed directly the top table decoration before its final look, and let me tell you how happy I was at that exact moment. Ivana did a great great job!! From the elegant bouquets, to the church decoration that was breath taking and to the table centerpieces that were super charming. Her input made our night more magical and sparkling. So please thank her so much for me and all of Le Salon staff who helped her.
The string quartet in the church made us so emotional and even made some guests cry. We were so happy they played in harmony with our priest’s mass in Arabic. They gave our wedding mass a more spiritual meaning and they turned our wedding ceremony into a sacred celebration full of depth and feelings. Thank you Ani so much!!
Zeljko! We love this guy! Super cool and talented. We’re so happy we had him at our welcome drink. We saw him again in Hvar in our honeymoon, it was so funny. We hugged him and thanked him.
Teatar!! Waw!! What a great band!! Their voices, the way they played. Super uplifting and made us all move and get up from our chairs. They changed the whole atmosphere of the dinner. I can’t believe we wanted to cancel them last minute. I am so glad we didn’t. We would highly recommend them to any couple who are looking to having a band at their big day.
The popcorn man and his machine! He played a big big role at our wedding, making it super fun and entertaining to everyone. There was a moment when I turned around and saw all our guests with popcorn bags including myself.
And oh the lighting at Villa Sheherezade. we can’t tell you how much our guests enjoyed moving from the dinner garden to the dancing area especially when they saw all the colorful vibrant lights. It was like they moved to another party. Also the dark red lights inside the villa was a great touch to our after party.
Please give my thanks to all the GVA staff, they did an amazing job. Everyone enjoyed the canapes, the food, the buffet, the drinks, the cake, the shots, the service. Everything turned out to be a great success. The GVA staff were very professional and amiable. We didn’t get any negative remark or complaint on anything. The were all high standard.
We hope we didn’t forget anyone!
I am trying to think of a negative comment to give you. But i can’t think of any!! We wished the balloons did not fly away at the Spanish steps. But I guess these things happen. We got some comments about the table numbers that were not very visible and our guests could not clearly see. And during the cake cutting we did not get our bottle of champagne Fadi and I. But please consider this as our constructive criticism. I’m sure you would find it very useful for your future events. But apart from those three little minor things, I have nothing else bad to say.
And finally Ines, we would like to thank you! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner for our big day! We are so happy we chose DubrovnikEvent, the ‘dream team’. You were on top of everything! Very focused, following up on every detail and attentive to everything that was happening. We even got remarkable comments from our families about you! Saying what a great woman she is. It’s thanks to you that Fadi, myself and our loved ones had the most heart warming weekend of our lives and a wedding that we will never ever forget. We couldn’t possibly thank you, Marin and Matea enough for what you did.
I apologize for the long email. But I had to give my feedback to you as a satisfied client but most importantly as a very happy married friend. We wish you and DubrovnikEvent all the success that you deserve in the coming future.
Until we meet again someday, who knows maybe in Beirut, maybe in Dubai or maybe even in Dubrovnik.
Karell and Fadi
We just wanted to say the biggest thank you in the world for all your help in us throwing the best wedding party ever!
We had an absolute blast and you guys were amazing.
Thanks for putting up with me being a bridezilla on occasion and for even sorting me out from being a sweaty mess!!
You really were all fantastic and we appreciate all your hard work and help and suggestions.
Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to – from the boat party to finishing up in the club – it was everything I wanted from start to finish.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Send me any links for me to add reviews – I am happy to put them on wherever you would like me to!
Lots and lots of love and thanks.
Jem & Ged (aka MR & Mrs Carter!!)
