Things to ask yourself when planning a Dubrovnik wedding packages cost

Dubrovnik is famous among show-bizz stars which means, Dubrovnik can provide all the luxury you want, but at the same time, you can have a tailored experience on unique location without breaking the bank. The costs can be very different and the only way to go is to define your budget in advance.
Besides, you should decide on what is important to you about your wedding day:

Do you want an expensive designer gown or a cheaper but stylish dress?
What about flowers and other decors?
Do you value memories and photographs that will stay for you in the years to come, or something else instead?
Do you want to rent a luxury villa for your ceremony or you prefer a remote natural spot?

Think about what are important things worth investing for you. Everything can be relevant because it is a personal matter. And that tremendously affects the overall cost of your wedding.

Seasons can affect your wedding package cost

Dubrovnik is most popular from May until October, mostly for the warm weather. Think about it not only because of the weather but also from a budget perspective – many venues and accommodation tend to be 20-30% cheaper in pre/postseason. 

Pro tip: Not to mention crowds through the city in peak season so if you want to have beautiful Dubrovnik walls and streets in background, you will have to wake up early to get these photos.

So how much does a wedding in Dubrovnik cost?

Well, you already guess the answer – if you want to customise any part of the wedding, which we are sure you do want, the package cost is pretty individual, or we can say relative.

Let’s say that the wedding packages for most wedding planners and photographers can be narrowed down to: big wedding, intimate wedding or elopement.
According to that, prices can vary very much. You can go with less than 1000 euros as well as with 10 000+ euros.

While it is very ungrateful to give exact numbers about costs without knowing your wishes first, we have prepared our general pricing for an adventurous elopement and intimate wedding packages in Dubrovnik.
