Accomodation options

You probably know more about these sites than I do, but a friend used this particular one to rent an apartment in Paris. Here's an apartment in Zagreb that sleeps 6 people and is $86 a night.

Apartments like this could be an option for people. I like that you get a kitchen and a living room, it might be more comfortable for people staying in Zagreb for a while.

There's also a Best Western in Zagreb. Maybe you could book a block and get wedding rates at a hotel like this (or another hotel).


Color Palettes

Have you thought about wedding colors yet? This isn't a priority, and I didn't have a color palette to start, but I thought this site was helpful for some color inspirations. And when you pick a month to get married, you can use the seasons to inspire you too! Let me know if you like any!

Save the Dates

We used for our picture save the dates. What do you think of these to use with your engagement 'save the date' pictures?

The first one would be $0.52 a card for 125 cards, that's $65, great deal! I'll can share some examples from other sites too.

Passport Invitations

I sent you this already, but I just want to make sure you have it saved ( These are so cool! I love the insert that would have Croatian phrases on it, such a good idea!

Flights to Zagreb

I did a little flight research on to figure out flight prices to Zagreb. I know you guys were thinking June for the wedding, but here's a look at a few months to give you an idea of what it will cost you and your US guests to fly over. Just note that these prices are for specific dates, so you might have to dig a little deeper for a specific weekend.
