Why choose Croatia for getting married on a boat
1. The Weather
The Dalmatian coast benefits from a Mediterranean climate. April to October is for sure the best time of the year to get married there.

But if you’re planning a yacht wedding in Croatia, as Croatian wedding photographers we would advise you to start your trip from Split. Starting from there you will be able to cruise around amazing islands such as Brac, Solta, and Hvar. If you’re planning a long cruise you can even go to the beautiful island of Vis or Lastovo and its Nature Park.
Dubrovnik is another option as well. From there you will enjoy a unique point of view of the old town, and you will be able to see the Elaphite islands. You can even cruise to Mljet and its National Park!
4. The Food
As for a lot of other Mediterranean countries, the food in Croatia is almost like a religion! Sit back and enjoy the wonderful Croatian cuisine and all its tasty flavors. Watch the landscape slowly pass in front of you while drinking a glass of great wine. Could we ask for more? We don’t think so!
