Getting Married in 2017? 10 Reasons It Should be on Sunny Hvar

Total Croatia News

Hvar tourism is booming,and while many people come for the beach and the nightlife, there has been a significant increase in recent years in a lesser reported sector of Hvar tourism – weddings. 

Leading hotel group Suncani Hvar has been leading the way, organising dozens of weddings each year on the island. Here are ten reasons why Hvar could be the place for you to tie the knot next year.

1. Location, Location, Location

We all want a stunning location for that special day, and where better to be than by the water on one of the world’s top 10 most beautiful islands? While there are various locations on offer, it is hard to beat the romance of Bonj les Bains, overlooking the Pakleni Islands. 

2. Sunniest Island in Europe

An important ingredient in that perfect day of course is the weather, and if you are looking to bet on blue skies as you tie the knot, where better than the island of Hvar, the sunniest island in all Europe? With an average of 2714 hours of sunshine a year, your chances of a sunny wedding are better than anywhere else.

3. One of Hottest Destinations Right Now

Croatia right now is one of the hottest destinations in Europe, with an unprecedented number of flight connections to Split Airport. As one of the top locations in the region, what better setting for your special day – a little more exotic than a typical wedding back home.

4. Choice

The team at Suncani Hvar has a range of options for your dream wedding. Helped by its varied collection of hotels in the town, Hvar’s wedding offer is enviable, from large-scale weddings hosted at Hotel Amfora and Bons les Bains, to something more intimate in equally spectacular locations such as San Marco Terrace, overlooking the fabled Hvar waterfront and the oldest public theatre in Europe. Whatever your individual needs, there will be a Hvar solution. 

5. Expert Wedding Planners

Croatia is a very bureaucratic country, and several years ago, the prospect of getting married in Croatia as a foreigner could have been a little daunting. No longer. One of the essential things on offer on Hvar is an expert wedding planning service, which in addition to the usual chores of organising cakes and flowers, assists the bride and groom through the necessary paperwork requirements. Indeed, some couples to be manage to organise the entire event without visiting, and what can be one of the most stressful experiences in a young lady’s life turns out to be one of the most pleasant.  

6. Ready-Made Honeymoon Destinations

Getting married on Hvar and wondering where to go on honeymoon? One of the world’s great holiday locations starts right outside your hotel room. Once you recover from the wedding, start exploring! Hvar is one of a thousand islands to be explored, and the mainland has another wealth of treasures.  

7. Holiday for Family and Friends

Why not turn your wedding into an even longer party for your family and friends. With sufficient notice on a wedding, there is time for them to coordinate their own holiday plans, where they can either continue to party with the happy couple, or else then explore this magical island of culture, which has more UNESCO heritage than any other island in the world.  

8. Cost

Have you checked the cost of a wedding back in the UK recently? Weddings on Hvar compare more than favourably, even with the flight, and you get a free holiday thrown in. 

9. Local Food and Wine

For some, the highlight of a good wedding is the food and wine, and if that is the case, then you are certainly coming to the right place. Hvar’s Mediterranean diet has now been inscribed as intangible UNESCO heritage, and its wines date back some 2400 years to the Ancient Greeks – wines which are increasingly attracting international attention, and which are now sold as far away as China and California. 

10. Proximity

One of the great things about a Hvar wedding is the close proximity of everything. No need for a long drive from the church to the wedding reception here, and all the key places for that special day – marriage venue, reception and accommodation are all within walking distance, an important consideration for some. Add to that the fact that all the attractions of one of Europe’s top destinations are also included, and why would you want to get married anywhere else?
