Married in September 2018

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

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
Take care

Matea & Ines,
Thank you will never suffice for helping Ruben and I have such a perfect wedding day. I was honestly really concerned that I had scoured over so many images of Dubrovnik and the wedding location that it could live up to the expectation, but it exceeded every one. Thank you for being flexible answering every question I had and making sure that I was comfortable with every decision that was made. You were always so prompt and never left me wondering even with the large time difference.
Matea, THANK YOU! Ruben and I especially would like to thank you for helping us charter a boat two days before the wedding. Second to the wedding it was probably our favorite part of the trip. Thank you for being so accommodating and sharing with us your love for your job but also your love for Dubrovnik. You were always so responsive once we were in town and helped calm all my nerves the day of. The wedding table was BEAUTIFUL and you helped with any and every detail! I could not imagine having to face the day without your help and guidance!

If you could share this with Veronica that would be wonderful!
Veronica,
Ruben told me that when you came over to take pictures, he was so nervous he could barely talk but your laughter and spirit helped make everything a little easier. I would have to say that I agree as well. Your energy was perfect, and we had so much fun taking our photos in Old Town afterward. Thank you again!!!
Again, Matea and Ines we could never say thank you enough!
Much love!
Katie

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.
Kind regards,
Lauren

Margret & Mehdi
Married in August 2018

Dear Ines,
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.
Sincerely,
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

Hi Ines,
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.
With love,
Sabina & Sachin

Karell and Fadi wedding by Dubrovnik Event

Karell & Fadi
Married in July 2018

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.
Sincerely yours,
Karell and Fadi

Simmy and Arun wedding by Dubrovnik Event

Simmy & Arun
Married in July 2018

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:
Ladies,
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

Hi!
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.

Married in June 2018

Dear Ines and Matea,
Wow! We can’t believe it has been a week since our wedding day already! We had the most lovely day, thank you both so much for ensuring that it all went smoothly for us. Special thank you to you Matea, for guiding us through the process at the registry office and for looking after us on the wedding day itself. We were both nervous and you helped to put us at ease.
We were so impressed by the suppliers that you chose, the flowers were exactly as in the photographs that I sent and I loved the hair and makeup, Matea makeup-artist, her daughter and Ana are lovely and they did such an amazing job. The boat was a highlight of the day, we all really enjoyed this and we are glad we decided to take the short boat tour to help us cool off. We are really looking forward to seeing the official photos too.
The food in both restaurants was lovely, unfortunately we were too hot to eat much of the meal on Lokrum, which was a bit of a shame. Trattoria Capriccio was by far my favourite, the food was amazing!
Some of the most memorable moments we’re things that no one could have planned. Dubrovnik is full of surprises – we weren’t expecting crowds of cheering tourists and the pianist playing the Wedding March as we walked through Dubrovnik, we were even treated to a free firework display at the end of the night over the harbour!
Thanks again for everything,
Lisa and Owain x

Woweee. We are still slowly coming down from such an AMAZING day! Two years ago we started planning our wedding with Ines and the team and my oh my it paid off! Everything we asked for she organised the other end and we did it all over email! Despite weather issues we risked it and still had the outdoor wedding we hoped for!! And like you said your guests arent here for the weather, they are here to see you marry in a beautiful part of the world. And you were so so right! They and we literally had the best day (and few days before and after) of our lives!! Thank you to you, your husband, Matea and Iva. From start to finish (even till our day after wedding meal) you were there supporting us and checking in with us to see if we were ok. This meant alot. And can i just say the florist absolutely blew us away, for someone who is a flower lover….she got EXACTLY what we asked for! Just beautiful. Well, I could go on and on…but really from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. You’re amazing xxxxxxx

Hello Ines, Marin and Matea,
We are still on such a high from Saturday, we really can’t thank you enough for the absolutely amazing job you did for us and your ability to completely change plans at the last minute to put on something we would never have imagined but which was perfect. We can’t speak highly enough of you (a sentiment which is echoed by all of guests!) and will definitely put on a good Facebook review.
Thank you and again we are so overwhelmed with what you managed to do for us.
Love,
Rachael and Rob

Hello Ines,
I just want to say thank you for arranging such a wonderful day for Rachael and Rob last Saturday. Even though the weather was not the best, it was a beautiful day, and I know everyone enjoyed themselves greatly.
Mljet is a beautiful island, and I can totally understand why Rachael wanted to get married there. She always did like to be a bit different, and think “outside the box”!!
Again many thanks for all your hard work in making the day go off so well.

Hi Ines, Marin & Matea,
Where do we start?…We have just arrived home from the best week of our lives! We can’t thank you enough for your help and support towards our wedding day.
The entire day was absolutely amazing and all of our friends and family have said how much they loved it and fell in love with Dubrovnik themselves! You made me feel so at ease as soon as I saw you in the hotel and Barry told me Marin did a great job removing the Scouts in front of St. Blaise at the last minute! Matea was also so helpful on the day keeping us on time for each part of the reception and checking we were ok!
For all of your organisation leading up to the day and attention to detail in the planning process, you have all been fantastic!
We will of course be writing a brilliant review just trying to pull together the words to describe it!
Thank you also so much for arranging an amazing dinner at 360 on Saturday night. We had a fantastic time and really appreciate it.
Thanks Again,
Helen & Barry
Mr & Mrs Walsh

Hello Ines

Thank you!

Elaine and Dave wedding by Dubrovnik Event

Married in June 2018

Hi Ines,
Greetings from our Honeymoon here in sunny Naxos!
I hope you’ve all recovered from the excitement of the match on Wednesday. I had my Croatian jersey on here in Greece cheering you all on! Best of luck tomorrow – I don’t think anyone will sleep if you win!
Seriously though, we just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us.
I knew we were in safe hands the first time I spoke to you over a year ago.
The time between our first call and first meeting in Dubrovnik went so fast. You helped us organise so much in the days we were there, with menu tasting, hair and make up trials. In particular though, the highlight was booking our ceremony venue for us about 20 minutes after we told you we wanted to get married in Sponza Palace!
I’ll never forget our first meeting with yourself, Marin and Vero. You were all so nice and funny and put us right at ease. We felt more like close friends then clients.
The year between our first meeting and our wedding flew in and the excitement that built waiting for our big day was only magnified by our hundreds of emails back and forth, always starting with a warm greeting.
Finally we were back in Dubrovnik for our big day with our family and friends and we couldn’t wait to see you all again.
Our pre-wedding photo shoot with Vero was hilarious, from climbing trees to jumping in the sea!
Then we had our final meeting with Marin, who as always was full of life and jokes, and telling Dave not to worry about the day!
On our wedding day I couldn’t have asked for more. You were there to make sure everything was running smoothly (which it did) and that I had eaten (which I had because I always take your advice! 😉 )
Sponza was incredible and you and your team did a fantastic job with the flowers and petals, every detail was perfect! The music was also incredible and really added to the atmosphere.
I can’t quite believe we managed to keep the boat a suprise but I’m delighted that we did because everyone loved it!!
Our reception was so much fun, I danced to nearly every song and had the best time ever!
The only time I wasn’t dancing was when I was eating our meal or when Vero took us down for our sunset photos! (which I am really looking forward to see)
Matea was amazing and made sure everyone was looked after, lit all the sparklers for the first dance and even managed to catch the bouquet!! 🙂
She is a credit to your team, full of smiles the whole night.
We wish we could replay the whole day again because we wouldn’t change a single thing. It was the most amazing day of our lives and that was due in no small part to all the work you and your team put in to it.
The BBQ in Copacabana was perfect the day after. Everyone commented on how great the food was and the staff went above and beyond with my sister’s birthday cake and decoration.
We will definitely be back to see you again, when we celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary like you and Marin.
Goodbye for now but please know you will always be in our hearts and thoughts and thank you for everything.
Lots of love
Elaine and Dave
Mr and Mrs Walsh!
(Going to take a while to get used to that 😉 )

Katy and Jonny wedding by Dubrovnik Event

Katy & Jonny
Married in June 2018

Ines! Matea!
I can’t believe it’s Tuesday and we haven’t been in touch. Sorry for slow reply. Between the million what’s apps, sharing photos, football, tears, joy, more parties (what is wrong with us?!) and so many mixed emotions, the time has flown by.
Wow wow wow wow wow. What a wedding. I even asked someone ‘was it too much fun?’ – is that even possible? It exceeded my expectations and there wasn’t a single moment or thing I would change. I’m glad the boat and heat gave me a windswept look that stopped me from over-caring and made me relax, I’m glad there was a thunderstorm that added even more drama, I’m glad we changed to Lenga Restaurant, I’m glad we had drinks inside, it gave it a formality that I think it needed and the olds could hear the speeches better. Plus we were closer to the club. It was just sensational in every way.
Kate, Miso, Dino and sadly didn’t catch the last gentleman’s name (even though I’m sure I would have tried) were just so great and felt part of the group. I was as pleased to see them and to wave and chat to them as I was the rest of the group. They were so spontaneous and nimble springing up everywhere -felt like they captured things we wouldn’t think ok. And in the end we couldn’t resist doing the ‘love story’ kissing photo 😂
The hotel staff and chefs were utterly delightful and helpful and didn’t tell me off for for dancing on the chair for the last song of the night! The buffet was exceptional, the wine was just right. I could go on and on and on and on.
I’ve messaged Barbara personally to say thanks and apologise for the windswept hair! But it still looked great and make up was still immaculate in the evening.
But mostly, you two sweet dears. Your patience and understanding and presence on the day, and personal recommendations and advice and commitment was brilliant. Everyone said you were the best in the game and I can see why. The way you respond to ‘crisis’ is excellent and you really have the best black book of contacts and ability to think on your feet.
They say the bigger the wedding the bigger the divorce, but despite what we thought was the wedding of the decade and an impossible act for our friends to follow, the romance and absolute love and adoration Jonny and I have for each other still shone through. Despite the non stop party, just look at the love in the picture below.
We nailed it. You nailed it. Thank you thank thank you from the bottom of hearts.
Katy and Jonny

Laura and Barry wedding by Dubrovnik Event

Laura & Barry
Married in May 2018

Hi Ines,
Hope you’re enjoying the wedding season and it’s not too hot in Dubrovnik.
I would just like to say a big big thank you for helping us organise such a brilliant wedding day.
When Barry and I took part in organising of the wedding day and came over for trials I had to tell myself when meeting the hairdresser and florist and showing a series of pictures of what looks I was going for. Throughout the wedding day, I had a series of lovely surprises – the flowers and buttonholes and especially the corsages were an extra special surprise. Dube did a fantastic job with my hair and Boris and Dean really did a fabulous job of capturing our special day.
We enjoyed the visits to Croatia to meet you and the team and felt as if you were always involved and available throughout the process, with emails discussing and organising details with both yourself and Matea made us realise that you listened attentively to our needs.
Matea did a super job of the tables when she used all our wedding favours and table decorations to arrange the tables how we wanted them to look. It was also lovely that Matea came and visited myself twice throughout the day to see how I was feeling something which was a lovely gesture. I was really touched that Iva had made an effort to make an appearance on the day, after finding out that she asked to work on the day of our wedding, having met her for the initial visit.
When arriving at Dubrovnik Palace hotel for guests it was lovely that the guests could arrive by the cliffs and they could see the location to give them such an impression. Our guests said throughout the evening and ever since getting home that they have never been to such a truly wonderful wedding and superbly organised. It is a true accolade to yourself, Matea and Iva and the rest of the team at Dubrovnik Events.
When looking at the recent pictures from Dean and Boris and reliving the day my mum keeps saying it and I also believe it that couldn’t have honestly gone any better. So, thank you very much indeed for all your hard work and making our special day so memorable.
Thanks again Laura and Barry

Andra and Gabriel wedding by Dubrovnik Event

Andra & Gabriel
Married in May 2018

Dearest Ines,
We got back in San Francisco very late last night after a series of delayed flights and lost connections that made us feel like Europe didn’t want to let us go 🙂 and then woke up in the morning to find your email, which put a smile on my face (like I said, I will dearly miss our frequent email exchanges!). You are right, in October last year we were excited to start the collaboration with you although back then we couldn’t even begin to imagine how awesome it would actually be! You helped us build our dream step by step and we will never forget this!
There truly are NO WORDS to express how grateful we are for the way you and your team made us feel during our wedding day on May 26th. We had a LOT of fun and time literally just flew by!!! We actually have a bit of post-wedding blues these days as we realize that we will never live that day again… especially since everything turned out absolutely PERFECT, beyond our most ambitious expectations! Our guests were blown away by the attention to detail and some of them still cannot grasp how we managed to organize such a fabulous series of events all the way from California! 🙂
Looking back to our nine months of email exchanges and late-night Skype calls, we realize how incredibly lucky we were to be able to collaborate with you for our special day! We couldn’t have asked for a more professional, reliable and warm team than Dubrovnik Event. Always prompt to reply our emails with great suggestions and kind words of advice, you really made us enjoy every step of the way! You always addressed even our silliest questions and concerns with tact and consideration. All your recommendations were spot on and you were always one-step ahead of the game (experience speaks!). From the very beginning, you knew how to put us at ease and we could feel that you had our best interest at heart.
We arrived in Dubrovnik for the first time the day before our wedding and we were so warmly welcomed by an entire group of professionals: from the Palace hotel staff to the amazing photographers, videographers, beauticians, music band – they all spoiled us! Not to mention that we were truly impressed with the amount of love and respect that everyone carries for you, Ines, and this really says more than a thousand words! All of you act like a family and this translates into the highest degree of quality and professionalism.
We would like to say special thanks to Matea for being so nice and approachable, always around and ready to help!
We absolutely loved Vero and Miran, we had a great time with them during our photoshoot and for the rest of the day everyone noticed their dedication, doing crazy things for the perfect shot 🙂
Teatar band were true superstars, our guests couldn’t get enough of singing along and dancing their feet off!
Last but not least, Gabriel would like to thank the fireworks team for putting up a stunning show (and the perfect surprise for me), a lot of our guests said they had never seen anything quite like that before!
Life has a great way of presenting you with fantastic experiences when you least expect it. We are not very religious people but we do believe in karma; over the years it has been proven many times that our positive and cheerful attitude attracts the same type of people around us. We are extremely happy to have found such special people like you, and we will forever cherish the journey that we shared for the past few months and, of course, the most memorable day of all.
A million THANKS to all of you!!!! Ines, Matea, Marin, Vero, Miran, Teatar band, Barbara, Jasna – you will always have a special place in our hearts!!! ♥️
Lots of love,
Andra & Gabriel
P.S: we are so terribly sorry that we didn’t take pictures with all of you during our wedding, if we could do it all over again we’d know better…

Austin and Chris wedding by Dubrovnik Event

Austin & Chris
Married in May 2018

Hello Ines, Marin & Matea!
My apologies for a late response…we just got to Santorini and I can finally sit and really take everything in. I am overflowing with joy and happiness after the last previous days. I too feel there’s not enough words to fully describe our gratitude to you all. Ines, I knew on our first meeting in raining December that I was in good hands. People kept asking, what kind of a wedding planner did you find…my response was “the absolute perfect one!” You knew what I wanted before I could put my dream into words. And that is what you provided…a dream come true. Nothing was unnoticed or spared (I’m pretty sure those macaroons jumped off the boat at some point! HaHa). And the details, the setting, the staff, the flowers, the music, the boat, the gifts, the food, the drinks (we had a few!), absolutely everything was divine. 
Thank you Marin for your time and effort in keeping us on track. On making Chris feel comfortable and making the order of ceremony seamless. You are a kind smart man and it was a pleasure. 
Matea, your time with our back and forth emails was so great. But your guidance during the reception was exceptional. Your warm way of dealing with a wedding couple, their parents and rowdy crew was handled graciously! Thank you. 
I am sorry I was late to the brunch (too much dancing at the club!) but that too was incredible. We never really knew how it felt to desire to go back in time, BUT we do now. All of our guest and family feel the same. 
We hope to return to your beautiful home soon. The very best of luck to you all during your summer. Hope there are no more broken ankles! We will cheers again one day. 
Our love and gratitude 
Mrs. Austin and Mr. Chris Flynn 💕🤗👰🏻🤵🏼

Austin’s mum, Sande:
Hello Ines,
I am sitting here in our Colorado home as the days darken , and the snow falls, and thinking of you.
A year ago, Austin found you.
What a gift!
Sometimes, there are not enough words….thank you for your guidance for every venue and the amazing photography that captivated this memorable experience.
Please know that your role in Austin and Chris’ celebration could never be duplicated.
I never took the opportunity the say a proper farewell and thank you in person for the love and effort that you brought to my daughter’s wedding.
Bless you and your family this Holiday season.
May you be surrounded with miracles.
With love, Sande

Megan and Shane wedding by dubrovnik event

Megan & Shane
Married in September 2017

Ines,
I am still trying to find the words to express how wonderful the past days have been, and my gratefulness to you, Marin and Matea for all
you have given over the past nine months. I don’t think you know this, but I reached out to inquire about a wedding before Shane even proposed. I knew I wanted to get married in Dubrovnik, and I knew I wanted you as my wedding planner. Shane was just dragging his feet on the proposal part : ).
Even though we had never met, and I had never even been to Croatia, I felt completely at ease working with you to plan this event. Your love for weddings, but more importantly, your love for helping people have the most magical days of their lives, shines through. Your recommendations were always spot on, and the team you assembled to help with hair, make up, flowers, photography, etc., are the best in Dubrovnik.
You truly have created a world class wedding planning business here in Dubrovnik. Every bump we hit in the process- the guests numbers, the weather, Shane’s suit- had an immediate back up plan and solution that made our event even better. Our guests cannot stop raving about our three days, and you are directly responsible for that!
I want to extend to you the worlds biggest HVALA!! I sincerely hope Shane and I are able to cross paths with you and Marin again, here in Dubrovnik, in Washington DC or some other place in the world.
Love, Megan

Hi guys!
Sorry I have not been in contact,it’s been a great but hectic few days,the bride and groom made it to bed at 7.30am on the wedding night!
Ines,I hope you are feeling better and that Marin’s leg is ok,it looked in a bad way on Saturday.
Myself and Padraig just want to thank you all so much for everything you done for us on Saturday, I know it must of been a highly stressful time for you all with the change in weather, thank you for trying your best. Especially Matea,you were amazing and so accomadating. Despite the change of plans we had the best day ever and wouldn’t change a thing if we were to have it all again! You made the restaurant look fab and thank you Ines for all the extra flowers,they were beautiful. I especially want to thank you for getting us back to the villa after the meal…this made the night for me,was so delighted are guests got to see it and celebrate with us there. Also Matea,thanks so much for organising the mini van from the bus,I’m not sure our guests would have made the walk down! All our guests had such a great time and said it was so different to any other wedding they were ever at,so fun and enjoyable…’a mystery wedding not knowing where the bus was going to bring them next’!!!
Pero was so amazing playing the guitar/singing and we really appreciated him learning specific songs for us -he sang them so beautifully!
Oh and also thank you so much for your beautiful gift…the book is amazing and we will treasure it forever. We sent out invitations to our after party at home with ‘eat,drink & be married’ written on them which is a lovely coinsidance.
Thank you all again so much for everything and I hope you all are back on your feet and in flying form soon.
Best wishes, Lauri & Padraig

Hi Ines, Matea and all of the team at Dubrovnik Events!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you from Stephen and I!
We had a really wonderful and magical day! The team that you work with are amazing and everyone did such a great job.
The set up was absolutely beautiful on Lokrum and for the reception! All of our friends and family had the best time they were blown away by the whole experience.
The DJ was amazing – he really made our night!!! We danced the entire night! Katija was lovely and so much fun to work with! I cannot wait to see all of the photos! Everybody that we met as part of your team was a pleasure to work with!
It was great working with you and I have to say I felt so calm throughout the process and that’s because you made everything so easy.
We are finally home now and back to our lives in Dublin. We are so happy that we found you and had the chance to work with you to create the most memorable experience our lives! We have magical memories with our closest loved ones now and you helped to make this happen!
Wishing you lots of love, happiness and success in your life and business! You all work so hard and it is well deserved!

Jay-and-Tulsi-wedding-by-Dubrovnik-event

Tulsi & Jay
Married in August 2017

Dear Ines 🙂
First and foremost can I just say thank you from me, Tulsi and both of our families for sorting everything out and helping everything go so smoothly!
We honestly couldn’t have done it without your help and you’ve helped us do everything we wanted for an affordable price (which we didn’t think was possible), so again, thank you, Marin and everybody else who helped you and us.
Yay, we’re not clients anymore, we’re friends. We’ll remember you guys forever and you’ll always hold a special place in our hearts. When we come to Dubrovnik again (which we will, 100% – can you believe I’ve been croatia 4 times and I’ve never been Dubrovnik city? The port was the closest I’ve been lol), we will 100% have to meet up and see if you are free for a drink. One thing I wanted to do was have shots with you but unfortunately the whole event at reception went so quickly, it was amazing!!!
I am so glad you enjoyed helping us, and we are all still trying to get over how amazing it was. It’s all over instagram, whatsapp, Facebook and hundreds of people who couldn’t make it are super jealous that they missed out of the wedding of not the year, but rather the decade. And that boils down to not only our guests, but you special friends
We can’t wait to see pictures and videos!
Thank you and loads of love from us both.
With bottomless love,
Jay & Tulsi TRIVEDI 🙂

Toni and Neil wedding by Dubrovnik event

Toni & Neil
Married in August 2017

Ines,
So we received our wedding certificate today… its official! Mr and Mrs Whiffin!! 😊
Thank you also for the amazing book, which features the beautiful Villa Ruza and their recipe for our favourite starter – shrimp Tempura – although I am certain we will never make them as good!
What a truly incredible time we had, it blew our guests away and by far exceeded even our own expectations and we knew what was planned! Every time we watch the video from our wedding it brings huge smiles to our faces and really reminds us of all the hard work and precision planning that went into it from your team to make it happen…. so….
Thank you Ines, Marin, Matea and Iva for all you help along the way.
The sunset galleon trip the night before, Marin’s idea 2 years ago, simply breathtaking and really appreciated by all of our guests who called it magical. Zac the Sax was amazing!
Thank you to Barbara for the hair, for her patience with me as I had struggled with the trials but on the day it was perfect! My niece the flower girl felt like a princess, and kept her plait in for the whole next day! And thanks for the last minute hair style for my friend who did our makeup.
The after ceremony cocktails were a real hit, with guests commenting on how tasty they were and appreciated in the heat!
Villa Sheherezade – Well! an absolutely stunning venue that wasn’t in our original plan and all thanks to you Ines, persistant with negotiations following the cancellation of the original Terrace bar. It couldn’t have worked out better! and what a backdrop for our photos.
Thank you Vero for making the photos as relaxing as possible for us, neither Neil or I are that comfortable with poses but she was great fun and kept us laughing. We can’t wait to see the pics!
The logistics on the day… bus to boat to island. Guests commented when they saw the buses they expected a 30min wait to get on but were impressed how quickly and efficiently people were moved from place to place.
Villa Ruza…. our favourite place. wow wow wow… a simply beautiful setting.
The band!! Thank you to the amazing Teatar band! We hadn’t expected our entrance song to be played live and they were incredible, the mood lifted right from the start… I was totally over excited walking to our table (as you will see in the film!). It is my most favourite and most overwhelming part of the day, to see all our guests around us, everyone so happy. I will never forget that moment!
Everyone commented on how fantastic the band were – the dance floor was full before the starters were served!! and that was how it was to continue all night, we could not have hoped for more. And to think we wondered if the dance floor would fill haha! Neil’s little nephew was taken with the lead singer! Please thank the band for letting our guests have their moments too, getting up and singing with the band, the musicians all took it all in their stride and were very accommodating!
A huge thank you to Matea and Iva who were there for the duration both days, always there but always discreet. Our guests complimented them both time and time again, thanks for keeping us all in line!
So once again a truly heartfelt thank you to you all for organising the most amazing 2 days, all of our guests fell in love with Dubrovnik and want to visit Croatia again. The venues were all stunning and our guests are saying it is the best wedding they have ever been to!
We would love to do it all again, we hope you enjoy our video!
All our love
Toni & Neil Whiffin! 😎

Wendy and Micah wedding by Dubrovnik event

Wendy & Micah
Married in August 2017

Hi Ines and Marin,
I hope all is well with you! We are back from our honeymoon and are just now starting to get settled again. We have also started to feel the post-vacation slump and are sad that our magical wedding is now over and it’s back to the real world again.
We wanted to give a heartfelt thanks to you and your team for your hard work in making our wedding week run so smoothly and turn out so beautifully. We were initially a bit nervous to plan everything from abroad, but you guys made it easy, and we appreciated your responsiveness and enthusiasm throughout the whole process. We also appreciate your flexibility, especially when some crazy friends brought a slushy machine to the venue :). I don’t exactly know, or want to know, what they did to get that slushy machine, but I loved it!
Please give our gratitude and compliments to the other vendors as well for doing a great job:
– Please thank Dube and Barbara for the lovely hair and makeup. The moms and bridesmaids all looked beautiful and they were very patient with us even when we were being indecisive! The makeup also magically stayed on all day and night which was awesome.
– The flowers were really fantastic. I LOVED the arch- honestly I wish I got to spend more time with it haha. The table settings and bouquets were also great- and the succulents were amazing! I wish I could have taken the bouquets with me to dry or something but unfortunately they don’t travel well. Thanks Patrea!
– Everyone really enjoyed the food and beverage. Ana Marija and team did a great job of incorporating our feedback from the tasting so everything came out wonderful. They also did a great job of making sure all the weird diet people got what they wanted, and they even let one of our friends change his menu 🙂 We appreciated how seamless the service was.
– Thanks to Ivan for pacing out the dancing and meals and everything so well, and for playing one last song for us upon request! We got lots of compliments on the music from our friends.
– Welcome dinner at Poklisar was great, even our gluten-free friend was impressed. I think we blew through the initial wine budget in like 5 minutes. Maybe next time do the forecast on “to what degree are your friends alcoholics?” 🙂 Thanks to Matea for keeping us informed throughout the evening.
– Mihoci was wonderful as well- I’m sure we will continue to be in touch with them as they put our photos and videos together. Our friends called them “ninjas” because they seemed to be in many places at once haha.
I hope you get some time off once this wedding season is over. We are super impressed that you guys do this everyday, because it is exhausting!  Again, we really appreciate everything you’ve done for us and please let us know if you are ever in New York!
Best, Wendy & Micah

Liz & Lawry
Married in August 2017

Dear Ines,
Firstly – please accept my apologies for disappearing and not emailing J after the wedding I lost my voice and then the honeymoon was just wonderful and I was able to escape life for a couple of weeks!!
Secondly, we didn’t get a proper opportunity to thank you for all your amazing efforts, hard work, ideas, commitment and passion. You delivered a wedding for us that was beyond all expectations and was literally the best day of our lives. I didn’t know it was possible to experience such happiness ! I still feel bliss when I think of that day.
I was very anxious about the wedding, I think you probably gathered from all my frantic emails (over 18 months!!!!). I was so worried that GVA wouldn’t care to look after us or something wouldn’t go according to plan… I think that is my issue with worrying about these things too much and also in the BVI things always seem to go wrong/timelines don’t exist/service isn’t really existent! I am trying to say I expect the worst J But you and the team have restored my faith & exceeded all expectations!! I had been told by forums  / previous clients that you were the best in Croatia and I actually think you are the best on the planet! I have not seen or been to a wedding as wonderful as ours –  everyone else agrees. It was beyond perfect.
I have to thank everyone involved from the start too – Iva was always calm, observant, detailed, and thorough and Matea was so warm and helpful – you of course were impeccably organized and a formidable force in delivering brilliance for us. Jasna and her sister were exceptional ! my nails have only just started to come off !!! I loved my hair and makeup, Barbara & Dube are AMAZING ! I think Veronica and her team were super. She showed us just one picture she had taken and it looked like something from a magazine. I cannot wait to see the rest J
Also, the staff at GVA were really, really good and the food and drinks were delicious. Much better than the tasting. For me, I thought Matteo (the waiter with the spectacles) was a star – everyone had everything / anything they wanted. Also, I loved the honey grappa and need to find somewhere that sells that here.
I really hope the rest of the wedding season is going well and I hope you all manage to get some time to relax and soak up all the gratitude.
We cannot wait to return to Croatia J
With Love and eternal thanks – Mr & Mrs Kearns

Phillipha and Chris wedding by Dubrovnik event

Philippa & Chris
Married in August 2017

Hi Ines and Marin,
Well the dust has finally settled on the wedding, both in Croatia and the UK.  So it is time to write to say, what a wonderful time we had celebrating Philippa and Chris’s marriage.
The day will be remembered for years to come and one of the main reasons it was so amazingly beautiful was down to you both and your fantastic team.  We couldn’t fault a thing.
When organising such an important event, especially from a distance, it is a little nerve racking.  But having met you both previously and had lots of communication, you did put our minds at ease.  Every single thing ran like clockwork.  Every single member of your team were so professional, helpful and friendly.
Hair and Beauty – Fantastic and so quick which was such a help when getting so many ‘little people’ ready.
Transport – Precision timing!  Everything was on time, the Pimms was enjoyed by everyone and what a treat to watch our beautiful daughter arrive in such style.
Emily – her 1st wedding for you and you would have thought she had been doing it years.  She made us all feel very special and privileged, especially as we convinced her to sing!!
The venue – Wow and double wow!!  It was truly breath taking and the tables and décor looked perfect – thank you.  Everyone was saying it was a modern day Mamma Mia only more beautiful
Catering – Wow, what a feast!!  Everyone was talking about the fantastic food.
Wine – very good and thankyou Marin for sourcing an excellent red especially for us.
DJ – He was brilliant!!  A DJ can make or break a wedding and he was just fantastic.  We were never off the dance floor!!
The babysitters – they were so lovely and we felt so confident leaving the 3 little ones in their care.  That is an excellent service you offer as we were all able to relax
The Photographer – was also brilliant and we can’t wait to see her photos
Our videographer – Leanne is a close friend of ours and is a destination videographer and she said, Villa Ruza was one of the most beautiful places she has had the privilege to video.
I hope I haven’t left anyone out.  I truly can’t thank you both enough for such wonderful memories.  A special thank you must go to whoever was in charge of the weather!!
Croatia has stolen our hearts so we will be back to make more memories.
Best Wishes,
Janine and Eric Pert

Alaa and Nour wedding by Dubrovnik event

Alaa & Nour
Married in July 2017

Planing a wedding from Dubai in a country that we never visited would have been impossible without the amazing team of Dubrovnik event.
We contacted almost all the agencies and from the first time we spoke with Ines we felt comfortable to work with her.
The planning process went smoothly without problems and the wedding was above our expectations.
We were the first lebanese couple that DE organises a civil ceremony for and everything was perfect “these guys will do everything to make it happen”
A huge thank you to Barbara Kolundija for hair and make up.
The venue decoration was beautiful, exactly as we expected. The music during the ceremony was great.
The photagraphers were friendly and delivered a short movie for us to broadcast in our party in Beirut in a very short period of time 🙂
Villa Rose was amazing, food, dessert, music…
The DJ was great despite the fact that we booked him a day before the wedding.
Our guests loved the wedding and we had an amazing night 🙂
Ines, Marin, Matea & Emily you really are the best at what you do; everything was incredible.
We can not thank you enough.
PS: it was our first time in Dubrovnik, we haven’t seen anything before the wedding day, and everything was perfect and amazing! You guys are great and trustworthy.
A lot of love.
NOUR & ALAA.

Clara and Leith wedding by Dubrovnik event

Clara & Leith
Married in July 2017

After completing some extensive research, we came across Dubrovnik Event. All the reviews we had read seemed extremely positive so we decided to make some enquiries as Dubrovnik was somewhere we had always wanted to go and the photos we had seen on the Dubrovnik Event page looked simply stunning.
From the first email we sent, Ines and her team were extremely helpful. The quick replies to our emails were great and we were never left waiting for answers.
People would often ask me how the wedding planning was going and I’d reply “Fantastic” because it was so straight forward and so organised due to Ines and her team.
We trusted Ines and her team that much we didn’t even come out to Dubrovnik in advance to the wedding. All arrangements were made via email, it was that simple!
When we arrived in Dubrovnik on the week of our wedding, we met Ines two days before the big day. She showed us the venues (Sponza Palace and the Grand Villa Argentina) and we were blown away. I would definitely recommend both of these venues.
On the day of the wedding, everything ran so smoothly. I literally can’t think of one minor hiccup. Our day was perfect. It was the best day of our lives. And all our guests said the same. They said it was like a fairy tale. Everybody was speechless, the views from the Grand Villa Argentina were to die for and the food was simply delicious! We chose the Lilly BBQ option to cater for all people and everybody loved it! The DJ was also amazing and played all the songs we had sent him in a playlist we created.
But, all of these amazing things could not have happened without Dubrovnik Events. I literally can’t sing their praises any louder. If you are reading my review then please hire Ines and her team, you won’t regret it. Our wedding day was perfect from start to end and this is all down to Dubrovnik Events. Thank you for everything.

Dear Ines,
Sorry this email is coming two weeks after our wonderful wedding, better late than never 😀
On behalf of myself and Paul we just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself, Marin and Matea.
You did more for us than we ever could have imagined. From answering ALL of our emails, questions and queries, to taking all the stress out of planning a wedding, to being there with us until the end of the night. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and our day couldn’t have gone any better!!
We placed so much trust in you as a wedding planner and you didn’t disappoint. All the attention to detail was amazing. Your recommendations for our venue, hair, makeup, menu choices, flowers and everything else was just spot on.
We can’t wait to get our photos and see the video of our day. Dubrovnik will always be a special place to us and we can’t wait to come back and visit again.
All the best,
Katrina and Paul

Morning Ines
WOW. There are no words!!! What an amazing day it was yesterday. In fact, the word amazing doesn’t even describe it well enough. It was truly the most perfect day and it far exceeded our expectations. Our guests were completely blown away by it.
You, Marin, Matea and all the team at Dubrovnik Event are unbelievable- we couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to support, inspire and guide us.
You guys really are true professionals but at the same time you’ve made us feel like we have been friends for a long time.
The wedding planning over the past 15 months was so so easy- we had no stress, no panic and no worry, and that proves just how brilliant you are. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done.
We will be back to this special place and we know that a lot of our guests will be too!
Please could you pass on our thanks to Emily, she ensured yesterday was flawless and she is such a lovely girl.
All our love,

Dubrovnik Event are amazing and you could not wish for better wedding planners!!
I was a bit nervous getting married abroad and putting all my trust in people I had never met. I am so glad I did as I don’t think our day would have been anywhere near as special without them! They respond to emails quickly, give you ideas and are so helpful and kind.
The day went perfectly and I didn’t have to worry about a single thing. Everyone in the team was so organised and professional. The work they do is to the highest standard and it helps that they are lovely people who really want to make your wedding day amazing.
We really appreciate the effort you went to and our guests couldn’t believe how brilliant the day was. (Trust me some of them are hard to please!) If you are thinking of getting a wedding planner definitely choose Dubrovnik Event.
Thank you again for all your help and making our day perfect.
Love,

Married in May 2017

On the 28th May this year, I married my soul mate in the venue of our dreams, with the help of Dubrovnik Event.
Ines, Marin and their team are absolutely fantastic and we couldn’t have wished for anything more.
Ines was on standby to answer all my emails and hundreds of questions whenever I needed her and I’m so glad we chose Dubrovnik Event after meeting with her and Marin, and another company we were considering to help us.
They made us feel incredibly comfortable and confident that they were the right choice from day 1!
I’d also like to say a personal thank you to Matea, who was fab at getting back to me quickly, and Emily who was there to help out on the day…a fantastically efficient team that took care of our every need. Hair and Make up, flowers, photographers…all absolutely amazing!
Our guests were all totally impressed with the day even though they had to sit and wait for us in the sweltering heat while we were running a tad late.
A day we and our guests will never forget!

Hi Ines
Hope your well, it seems your now in full swing with wedding season.
We hope you got our card,I don’t think there are any words to describe how much fun we had on the day, but also to thank you.
It was incredible more than we could have ever wished for.
I remember when you said we should see Vala I thought what does she know we didn’t choose that venue to see, but my god what a space!!! It was perfect!!
What you do is amazing bringing so much happiness to the people you meet!
You are truly amazing at what you do and you will always be remembered fondly!
We are off to Italy today for our mini moon, but can’t wait to come back to Dubrovnik and remember the most incredible day of our life.

Hi Ines,
Thank you so much for your lovely email this morning… we woke up so happy and excited to be husband and wife.
We owe you great thanks… between you and Marin, you made our dream wedding a reality and every single detail was perfect. We could not be happier!
You went far beyond what either of us would have expected from a wedding planner, and that is the reason for the gifts we gave to you. We feel like we have gained real friends on our wedding planning journey, and now we have an excuse to return to your beautiful country again and again!
Special thanks to Barbara for making me feel like a princess, and to Veronica and Katija for  taking our photos. And to Petra also… Michael had fun with her, and she was so kind to him.
Thank you again for making our dreams and wishes come true…
Love and best wishes, Mr and Mrs Bell xxx

Elaine and Paul wedding by Dubrovnik event

Elaine & Paul
Married in October 2016

I used Dubrovnik Event for my wedding and I am so glad I did. I have never been to Dubrovnik nor planned a wedding before so I was a total novice. After much internet searching I noticed that one name kept popping up, Ines from DE. I decided to contact her and the rest was plain sailing.
I had no idea what I was doing but Ines, Marin, Iva and all the team were there with any query big or small, relevant or irrelevant.
My wedding day was perfection and EXACTLY what I wanted and more, which is fantastic seeing as I organised it totally via email. I’m so grateful I chose DE. I put my trust in them and it paid off. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
You guys are the BEST XXX

Jon and Safa wedding by Dubrovnik event

Safa & Jon
Married in September 2016

Hi Ines and Marin!
Jon and I have been resettling back into life here in Washington after our honeymoon. We finally got through unpacking everything and are now even embarking on a cleanse throughout the house of unwanted things. It appears that when you go from planning a wedding in all of your free time to having lots of free time, you want to do something productive!
After all of our madness, I was finally able to take a look at the book you got us and read the inscription – which I didn’t even know was there! Thank you for the AMAZING book – we love it and for your sweet words.
You both made our wedding so wonderful and we can’t thank you enough for all you did. I hope that you’ve been thoroughly enjoying a little down time during the slow season!
As for us, we will certainly keep in touch. Jon and I will likely come back to Dubrovnik periodically to relive the magic of your beautiful town and talents!
Lots of love, Safa and Jon

Dear Ines,
First and foremost, thank you for making it the best day of our lives.
The day was absolutely perfect and we have you to thank. Our wedding and details have been admired by all our loved ones. We all loved how organized you kept the day/evening flowing and how calming your presence were during the whole day and kept us from having a meltdown.
5 stars isn’t a limit that could capture all you have done, your talent far exceeds anything I know. If anyone is looking for a event planner that will guide you through the entire planning process and see through the day with professionalism and finesse, I promise you will not go wrong with Dubrovnik Event.
Thanks again
Love
Ann-Elin and Mirza

Ines where do we start!!
In August 2013 Nathan and I travelled to Dubrovnik looking for ideas and venues to get married in. From the moment we met Ines our fate was sealed!!! We knew Croatia was the place for us and that Ines and Marin would be the perfect team for the job!!! From the start Ines was amazing responding to our endless emails and thousands of questions! The whole wedding planning experience was relatively stress free and every detail was planned to perfection! So thank you, thank you making our day so special. Thank you for all of your help and support over the last year. All of our guests have nothing but positive things to say about our wedding and everyone enjoyed every minute of it.
We made two great decisions:
1. To get married in Croatia
2. To use Ines and her amazing team at Dubrovnik Event
Thank you for everything,
Catherine and Nathan

Hi Ines and Marin,
Anna and I want to say thank you so much for everything. We loved the entire experience and are really sad it is now over.
Our friends and family had the time of their lives and we couldn’t have had any more fun.
I also want to reiterate how grateful we were for your flexible approach to everything and for going above and beyond. Marin, we had a real laugh with you and Rio (Ruza) and as always the booze does the talking!! Next time i will keep all my clothes on.
Ines, thanks for settling the nerves of Anna – I might have to try and learn your tricks!!
Take care guys, i hope you have a good finish to the wedding season and best of luck with your pregnancy and the arrival of you newest family member…..

Dear Ines, Dear Marin,
I would just like to thank you both for making my daughter’s wedding “perfect”. Happy Bride. Happy Groom. Happy family! Your attention to detail, your eye for perfection, your caring and simply being there to make the machinery run was very much appreciated! I am still quite exhausted from everything, especially the 12 guests in the house that I had and all the activities, but knowing how everyone enjoyed this “Croatian experience” makes it all worthwhile. I wish you both continued success with Dubrovnik Events and all that you continue to do – I know who to turn to when I plan my next party here. Thank you from all of us, stay well and have a great and successful summer! I hope to see you soon.
Sincerely, Alma & Co.
