Croatia, a country with breathtaking landscapes and thousands of islands, is a dream destination for outdoor weddings. Among these islands, Central Dalmatia stands out as an enchanting archipelago rich in natural beauty and steeped in history, culture, and tradition. This unique combination makes Dalmatian Islands a popular choice for weddings. In this article, we explore weddings on the islands of Hvar, Brač, Vis, and Šolta.
Hvar, often hailed as one of the most beautiful places globally, is a paradise for weddings and romantic celebrations. Known as Europe’s sunniest island, Hvar boasts a rich historical backdrop and pristine beaches, making it an ideal wedding destination. Couples seeking a dream wedding location with beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife will find Hvar irresistible. Moreover, Hvar offers affordability and is conveniently close to Split.
A young couple from the USA, fans of traveling, decided to choose Hvar destination wedding. They combined two locations – Ceremony venue in Hvar Old Town and Wedding Celebration at Zori restaurant.

If you decide to get married in Hvar, you will have the opportunity to choose between some very interesting options, as, for example, to have a wedding ceremony and photo shooting in Hvar Town, and then visit the Pakleni Islands in a speedboat, where you will organize your reception and party. The best places you should take into account if you are planning a Hvar wedding are Carpe Diem Beach on Stipanska, Zori on Palmižana, and Restaurant Zori. A small and friendly restaurant Palmižana is only 20 minutes away from crowded Hvar. It has a beautiful terrace, right above the beach, where you will have a splendid look at a bay, while this magnificent restaurant will be an ideal match for your dream wedding reception. After an incredible boat transfer from Hvar to Palmižana, you will have the opportunity to enjoy high-quality food, polite staff, and a relaxed ambiance. If you are planning to get married in Hvar, you should think about BONJ ‘LES BAINS’ BEACH CLUB. Thanks to its luxurious terrace and great ambiance, this place is simply perfect for wedding celebrations. Furthermore, we could say this is one of the most luxurious Mediterranean beach bars, with a long tradition, which dates back to the 1920s. The most romantic wedding ceremony venue is St. Mark’s terrace, a former church, located in the middle of the city. This church was closed for the public in the 19th century, so the Hvar citizens decided to preserve its historical importance, by deconstructing its roof and redecorating its beautiful garden. If you want your wedding to be accompanied by a mixture of history, nature, and romance, this is certainly the perfect place for you.
Brač, the third-largest island in the Adriatic Sea, is renowned for its beautiful beaches, clear waters, and charming towns. Brač weddings are on the rise due to the island’s natural beauty and accessibility. The iconic Zlatni Rat, or Golden Horn beach, with its distinctive shape and crystal-clear waters, is a fantastic location for a beach wedding. Brač offers a range of accommodation options, from luxury resorts to cozy villas and apartments. Here you can see a beautiful outdoor wedding in Bol on the Island of Brač.
Nowadays, this region is almost unpopulated, as most of the inhabitants moved to the mainland. Because of that, these islands preserved their true soul and you should take this location into account for your Brač wedding. The main touristic centres are a pleasant and quiet Supetar and luxurious Bol.

However, the most beautiful place on the island is Maslinica, with seven islets offshore. Right there, in Maslinica, we found one of the most beautiful Croatian wedding venues – Martinis Marchi. This is a 300 years old historic castle; whose apartments are luxury decorated with furniture and accessories from most prestigious European cities.
