We want to say a huge thank you to the dream team from Dreamtime Events for making our wedding day so magical!
From the very first Skype call with Željka and Branka we knew that you where the perfect match for us. We had already fallen in love Croatia and with one specific venue before contacting Dreamtime (after having considering 36 different venues and rating them in a spreadsheet). Dreamtime made room in a busy schedule and went there to inspect our dream destination, Crvena Luka in Biograd na Moru a couple of days later. And this was before we had signed any contract. After having watched the videos you sent us we knew that we had made the right choice, both for the venue and the wedding planners. So our response was to send you a video back, of us opening a bottle of champagne and pronouncing you as our wedding planners.
The best way to describe the planning process is that Dreamtime is a group of friends that helped us organize our big day. And friends, that is just the way we feel you are to us! Friends that say ``Yes of course`` to our every wish.
It has been very easy to communicate with Dreamtime all the way. Željka has fixed, checked and organized everything we have asked for and the team has been very proactive in anticipating our needs. The vendors recommended by Dreamtime are fantastic! The wedding day ended up being truly perfect, this is something we really could not have managed to do ourselves. We had lots of wishes for our wedding, some easy, some not so easy... When we asked for a yacht to take us and the guests on a surprise boat trip after the ceremony you found a magnificent boat. When we asked if you could fix a floating red carpet so that the bride could arrive the ceremony walking over the bay from the other side you said: That is actually not a bad idea! The creative solution you came up with was a boat to take the bride over the bay to the ceremony. And when we asked for the impossible you explained to us why we had to adjust our plans slightly, we discussed this and came up with a great solution that just made our day even better.
We have been so lucky to work with Željka, Branka and Adriana in the planning phase and most of all to have you there with us on our wedding day. All three of you have made an everlasting impression on us and you are really fantastic persons!
Adriana had lots of knowledge about everything the bride needed to know for her preparations, she was really fantastic getting all the decorations just right on the wedding day and ran around in the heat and fixed everything.
Željka is without doubt the best organizer in the world, regardless of business. She seems to have a spreadsheet built into her brain, and combining that with great people skills you get a truely unique person. We have been truely blessed to have you. Skype, Whatsapp, email, phonecalls and whatever, you have always been there for us.
We discussed having fireworks on our wedding wedding day but in the end we decided we did not need this - we had Branka! You are our fireworks!
Željka and Branka are quite different persons, but they make up the perfect team. The Dreamtime team!
The only 'problem' we can see with the wedding is that we can't repeat it every year. Luckily we have great photos and video from our big day. And we really look forward to going back to our dear Croatia and meeting our friends at Dreamtime again!Irene & Frank
We want to thank Zeljka and Branka for their wonderful work planning and executing our wedding. We had only a very basic concept of how we wanted our wedding to look but over time, Zeljka and Branka guided us and helped us develop a vision for our special day. They gently nudged us in the right direction when we had an idea that may not have worked out, but they were very respectful of our decisions. We had several late night Skype sessions (from the US) so they could get to know us from afar and figure out some details.
After finding the beautiful venue in Polaca, everything went so smoothly. The photographers they suggested were all amazing and we couldn't be happier with the one we chose. The florist they work with did wonders and made the site even more breathtaking. The celebrant, Maja, was a gem and got the marriage legalities worked out for us and we received our official license within a few weeks! We trusted Dreamtime so much because of how professional they were and how their vendors were. Their genuine excitement and happiness for us was palpable and made us and our families feel so welcome in Croatia! The wedding itself was magnificent and came with many little surprises. We had the greatest time working with Zeljka and Branka and highly recommend their services!
Thank you again for all of your help and expertise. We really had a 'dream' of a wedding and all of our friends and family are still talking about how fantastic everything was.

Dreamtime have been simply amazing. We started planning our wedding and within 5 months, we were married! From the start, Dreamtime were supportive, thorough and answered all our questions. We thought planning a wedding abroad would be really difficult but with Željka’s help, it was a breeze! Zeljka sorted everything out from the flowers, restaurant, photographer, make up artist and so much more! We couldn’t have got married without Dreamtime and we will always be grateful for the amazing day they gave us.

“After a year and half of planning I couldn’t have asked for a better team to make our wedding day come to life. Dreamtime paid attention to all the details from the beginning to making sure our guests were taking care of till the end. We’ve developed a strong relationship since and it was reassuring to have them to lean on. Planning a wedding isn’t easy; especially if you live overseas, but Branka and Željka were very communicative and on top of their game to make sure I was included every step of the way. Our wedding truly couldn’t have turned out any better than it did, it was perfect!” Gloria & JTGloria and JT
When we started planning our wedding we thought we had done most of the work ourselves. Plane tickets, restaurant for our wedding dinner and a place to have the party was ordered, and we were therefore in doubt if we should have a wedding planner or not. We were so wrong! We decided to have a Skype meeting with Branka and Zeljka and right away they struck us with their enthusiasm and professionalism.
When we look back after our wedding we clearly see that we could not have done this wedding if it wasn’t for you!
There are so many things we would have easily oversee if it had not been for Zeljka eye on details. We are so happy for all the vendors you helped us get in touch with and for the beautiful monastery in Makarska you suggested for us. Dreamtime made us feel relaxed both before and during our wedding day, and we would definitely recommend you to others.
Thank you for making our Croatian wedding dream come through.Mona & Lars
Dreamtime is nothing short of amazing! Our wedding would not have been the spectacle it turned out to be without Željka & Branka and their tireless efforts. Željka went well beyond her duties in making this wedding so amazing and Željka does everything she does gracefully and nothing is too much. The suppliers she recommended were truly fantastic and her negotiation skills are second to none and by far outweighed the modest fee for their services.
We chose Croatia for our wedding due to its natural beauty and hospitable people, and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Although we had to make many last minute changes due to some rain forecast for the wedding day, Željka kept us calm all through the final days leading up to the wedding and was overall absolutely brilliant and dedicated to us & our guests having the best time in Croatia.
Dreamtime from the beginning of planning our wedding made us more and more excited for the big day, and were in constant contact through WhatsApp and via Skype. This made planning the day so much easier and painless.
What else can I say except thank you Željka & Branka and we will definitely recommend you to all and book you again in 25 years if you expand into anniversaries too!!

A MASSIVE thank you!
I just wanted to thank you again for making my wedding so, so perfect.
It was totally amazing and more special than i could have hoped for.
From the very first contact, you made me feel comfortable and confident that everything would go well and then coming to meet you in October and having the opportunity to view all the amazing venues was just perfect.
I look back on my photo's with so much happiness and the venues we chose together couldn't have been better. I so happy we chose Dreamtime and cannot recommend you highly enough.
I've sent a few photos that hopefully capture the happiness of the day.
Lots of Love and wishing all the very best for the future,

Zeljka and Branka made our dreams come true on our wedding day in the most beautiful location, Martinis Marchi, Solta. We would never have known about this place if it wasn’t for them and from the moment we chose this location everything ran smoothly all because of them. The thought and planning process of a wedding is stressful enough but they do everything they can to take this stress away.
The ideas and thoughts they put forward were perfect and they also took onboard our own thoughts in the process.
Communication was easy through email and skype which was a big concern of mine with getting married and arranging such a big event overseas but I had no need to worry with these 2 amazing people behind us.
They were both fantastic people to work with and also to become friends with too who we hope to stay in contact with in the future and we cannot thank you both enough from both of us and each one of our guests who smiled from start to finish.

We are so thankful to Željka and Branka for their expertise, kindness and attention to detail that allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding day to the fullest! Their vision helped us DESIGN OUR DREAM DAY!
We first met on Skype and got to know a bit about Dreamtime Events Croatia and were invited to a private event in London which enabled us to meet plenty of past and future couples who have used/will use Dreamtime Events Croatia. At the event we then met a lovely lady who owns Hotel Park in Hvar which is where we ended up having our reception. It was everything we wanted but we also started to feel completely overwhelmed thinking about how our wedding would come together.
I convinced my fiancé (now husband) from our first meeting with Željka & Branka that I had all faith in these two lovely ladies, I just had a gut feeling that no one else would come close. We put our trust in Dreamtime Events Croatia and my initial worries quickly faded once we signed the contract. We received so much support, from start to finish. We are so grateful!
Thank you to Željka and Branka for making our wedding day prefect. Dreamtime events Croatia is everything and more! You two ladies should be so proud because we are!
All the best,
Rachel & Ryan (the new Mr& Mrs thanks to you)Rachel & Ryan
We first found Branka and Zeljka by referral from Martini Marchis Hotel. They were travelling to the UK for business and it was extremely helpful to be able to meet them in person to discuss what we wanted from our wedding.
We think that one of the great strengths of Dreamtime is their willingness to engage in a dialogue about the preparation of our wedding. We can be rather strong willed both individually and as a couple and at times had fixed ideas about what we wanted our wedding to be. Dreamtime was able to work with our wishes but was also able to guide us in what could be realistically be achieved. An example being that we wanted 2 large olive trees as part of our ceremony set up. This could not be achieved but an alternative was arranged that was agreeable to all.
Zeljka and Branka dealt with our demands and worries with good humour and promptly. They kept us in the loop and chivvied where necessary and gave us time to make our own decisions.
One of the perils of getting married abroad is that you do not know whether it is going to work until the day of the wedding when all the suppliers converge on a small hotel, on a tiny island off the coast of Split. It is at that point when you find out whether Dreamtime have been worth the fee …
You will be pleased to hear Dear Reader that the arrangements spearheaded by Branka and the team at Martini Marchis went off like clockwork. As Thursday and Friday unfolded, lighting arrived, tables were set up and decorated, band sound checked, registrars arrived, food was prepared, the photographer began his work and so by 5pm 7th September 2018 Penny and Matt had the most amazing wedding for themselves and 30 of their closest friends and family. Although the team at MM will get their own testimonial we would really like to praise Rabbit Rock and Zeljka for insisting upon them as the sound and lighting of MM was truly spectacular and made for an extremely atmospheric evening. Special mention also to Ivana (and her mum) whose flowers, bouquets and table decorations were beautiful.
We do not intend on getting married again but were we to do so or others are thinking of doing similar to us we can recommend Dreamtime to them.Matt and Penny
Dreamtime Events was the best thing that happened to our destination wedding. Before making our decision to work with Dreamtime, I interviewed about 4 different wedding planners in Croatia. It was with certainty that I had to choose Zeljka & Branka.
Their genuine & authentic characters came through and they turned our vision to reality. It truly was a DREAM. Zeljka & Branka made sure every detail was taken care of and their attention to detail was impeccable. Thank you Dreamtime for taking part in planning our wedding and our honeymoon.

Just wanted to say from the moment we Skyped for the first time I felt completely at ease and weirdly comfortable with planning a wedding in a country I had never been to, and was so far away from.
Every step was so easy and Zeljka was so fantastic with my (sometimes picky) requests.
The whole day went without a hitch, and was way better than expected.
With both of your guidance you were able to help me with things I had not even thought of. Everything from our beautiful wedding singer, florist and unbelievable photographer was just a dream. We are so happy to have been married in Split and through Dreamtime xx Meagan & Anthony, AustraliaMeagan & Anthony
We have written a short testimonial - our words can never sum up our appreciation for you both, but I gave it a try :).
From the minute we met Branka and Zeljka/Dreamtime Events, we knew we wanted them as our wedding planners! They were so friendly, personable and passionate that we instantly felt as though we were their friends or family and just knew we were in the best hands possible! We really did feel as though our wedding was as important to them as it were to us. Getting married abroad can be stressful but they take all of the stress away from you, handling all of the liaising with vendors and dealing with all the admin, which is a huge relief! It helps that they literally know everyone from captains of boats to the local Mayor as anything you ask for, they have a way of sorting!
It is so nice to be able to say that our wedding day went perfectly and that is all down to Dreamtime Events. We didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day and could just completely switch off and enjoy ourselves. We are so grateful to have met Branka and Zeljka and will always keep a close relationship with them. We couldn’t recommend them enough for anyone looking to get married in Croatia; they are the best team for the job!! XxxLillie & David
Working with Zeljka and Dreamtime events was such a wonderful experience. Living in the US and wanting to celebrate your wedding in another country can feel overwhelming, but immediately Zeljka made us feel totally at ease. From the moment we decided to work together to the moment we left Croatia after our wedding we felt and were totally taken care of. We would absolutely recommend Dreamtime events to anyone looking to plan a wedding in Croatia.Ally & Peter Gallery
We couldn't have asked for a better group of ladies to plan our wedding day! Leaving every detail in their capable hands, we were able to enjoy every moment of our wedding day with no cares in the world! Even though we were on the other side of the world, their planning and communication was amazing !!!Carling & Samuel Gallery
Being Australians, having our wedding in Croatia was only ever wishful thinking. But, with the help of Branka, Irena and Željka at Dreamtime Events Croatia, they made the impossible, possible and our dream wedding a reality.
The girls at Dreamtime Events were so professional and always willing to answer any questions we had. Their attention to detail was second to none and their local knowledge was much appreciated.
Thank you so much for a wonderful day! Everything went so smoothly and we were so relaxed on the day knowing it was all in control and in your hands.
If you are considering a wedding in Croatia we can't recommend Dreamtime Events Croatia highly enough.

Our dream came through, with a destination wedding at Solta with our closest family and friends. Dreamtime Events Croatia made the planning easy and smooth with their local knowledge, great conections and suggestions of vendors. The wedding day was so relaxed as we knew everything were in your thoughtful hands. A perfect match of Brankas dreamy ideas and Zeljkas organizing skills, can make anything happen. Both children and adults felt like royals for a weekend at the castle you found for us. Thanks for making us a part of your Dreamtime family.Lise-Linn Erik Gallery
When we were searching for the perfect wedding planners for our big day, we would have never dreamed to have met women like Branka and Zeljka. They went above and beyond to give us our dream wedding here in Croatia. Their creativity, loyalty and resources can't be beat. They even saved Megan's wedding dress from being stuck in customs. Our wedding day was pure magic thanks to them and their team. They aren't wedding planners, they are our dear friends now!Megan & Jonathan Gallery
Have you ever had a message in the morning asking you to organise a whole day’s itinerary in less than 3 hours, oh and did I mention it was for that very day? Well this is exactly the kind of call that we gave to Dreamtime Events Croatia who moved heaven and earth to make sure our needs were seen to. We had just been given a free day so we decided to do something with it and so we reached out to Branka Cubelic and Dreamtime Events Croatia who gladly accepted the challenge. We had always wanted to go to Split and this seemed to be the perfect chance to see something new and to experience the glorious city. There were a few complications, for example we were all the way out in Tucepi and had no means of getting to Split, but Dreamtime Events fixed this and every other problem that we faced. They were so dedicated to making it happen that we were overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation. As if that wasn’t enough, we were fed until we could eat no more.
For Samoans the success and failure of any event is the food, and let me tell you, based on that aspect alone, it was a total success! Our concert that night at Stobrec was well attended and we even had a little after party with our new friends. Just when we thought that we could take no more we went into the heart of the city and experienced the night life, Splitian style. The streets were filled with people who were there for the Eurosound festival, and so we mixed and mingled and sung our way around the bars and the streets. Finally returning to our hotel in Tucepi at 3am, we have to say it was one of the best days of the tour. Thank you Dreamtime Events Croatia. You guys are absolutely amazing!Klapa Samoana Facebook
