Wedding in Budva
The most famous beach town in Montenegro, Budva with its seaside walks and outdoor restaurants has the ambience of a traditional resort extremely crowded during the summer months. This tourist resort with the nearby Island of St Stephen attracts visitors from all over the world. This part of Montenegro coastline was the “St-Tropez of Adriatic” in the sixties and seventies when Sophia Loren, Princess Margaret, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor used to spend their holidays here instead of South of France. Today, the hotels of the region regained its past glamour, and red rooftops of Sveti Stefan present a tourist attraction competing with Croatian Dubrovnik.
The town, which today is the heart of “Budva Riviera”, rose in the IV century BC, founded by Greeks. The fortifications are standing there since the Middle Ages. Apart from impressive historic heritage, Budva boasts eight miles of sand and pebble beaches and series of sheltered coves.
In 1979 the Old Town of Budva was stroke by an Earthquake. Only 8 of 400 building escaped the damage. Thus, the buildings that you can see today are by large the result of restoration works. After exploring the old town within the sturdy walls, it is worth spending some time on the town beach ideal for relaxation and swimming.
A short stroll east along a narrow coastal path connected by a tunnel will take you to the pebble beaches of Mogren I and II. Don’t miss the symbol of Budva, the graceful bronze sculpture of a ballet dancer on your way there.
Aman Sveti Stefan & Villa Milocer
The island of St Stephan lies six miles east from Budva. It is the highlight of the area connected to the mainland by a sand spit. A unique geographical feature, this “tombolo” is also a home to an excellent Aman Sveti Stefan hotel. The entire XV century fishing village was converted into a high-end resort during the 1950th. Many famous visitors used to enjoy the sunshine on the curvy pink sand beaches of St Stephan.
Facing a private bay, romantic and regal Villa Miločer was once the summer residence of Queen Marija Karadordevic. The estate borders by lush exotic gardens and offers its guests exclusive access to the Queen’s beach secluded by the woodland. The Villa is a superb venue for a Montenegro wedding. The style of the villa somehow reminds of Tuscany. The best venue for your wedding ceremony is the lawn overlooking the beach. The wisteria-draped colonnade is gorgeous for the wedding dinner reception, and the following late-night party can take place on the wooden deck among olive trees.
Villa Miločer interiors combine traditional splendour and contemporary style. The Juliet balconies open the sights of the King’s Beach pink sands and the manicured gardens. Villa Miločer at St Stephan is a perfect venue for an exclusive wedding in Montenegro.
A perfect venue for Montenegro weddings, the luxurious 5-star Hotel Splendid has a perfect seafront location in the heart of Bečići between Budva and Sveti Stefan. The Hotel is within easy reach from Podgorica, Tivat and Dubrovnik airports. The elegantly decorated rooms and suites look over the Adriatic Sea.

Wedding in Kotor
The medieval town Old Town of Kotor is the jewel in the crown of Montenegro. Settled on the edge of a majestic bay bearing its name it offers visitors the delight of walking in the maze of cobbled alleyways and hidden piazzas. The town walls are climbing the massive mountain peaks. The thousand-meter cliffs of this fjord-like bay rise almost vertically from the calm waters where the stylish yachts dot the surface.
The city first appeared as a Greek colony, and until the end of XVIII century had been under Serb, Austro-Hungarian and Venetian rule. Each culture added something to the shape of nowadays Kotor. It is best to get to know Kotor, heading to the Old Town, walking through the maze of streets without a map.
Enter through the Sea Gate, facing the harbour, and you will come straight to the main Square of Weapons. Numerous city cafes found home in old Kotor buildings, like Rector’s House and a leaning clock tower. The wall of mountains that back up the St Tryphon’s Cathedral keep the town in shadow and together with streets of old town will serve as a lovely background for your Montenegro wedding pictures.
If you make a round trip along the old town walls, you will get to the XIV century St Ivan’s Castle offering a stunning panorama of the fjord. Kotor’s walls snake up for almost three miles – twice the length of legendary Dubrovnik fortification.

Wedding in Perast
Wedding in Perast is like going back in time. The ancient village of Perast nestles on the coasts of peaceful Kotor Bay. The town attracts visitors with its historical and cultural wealth seemingly untouched by modern tourism. Venetian architectural tradition left its trail in the baroque palaces, Catholic churches and defensive towers of Perast. The town once used to be a stopping spot for the Russian Czars and Venetian Princes who travelled to Kotor Bay to improve their sailing skills and relax in the abundant natural beauty.
Lady of the Rock wedding
Two nearby islands became home to unique churches. The Island of St. George is home to unparalleled XII century Benedictine monastery. The neighbouring island of Gospa od Skrpjela (Our Lady of the Rock) is home to an old church.
You should take the opportunity to see the legendary islet. As the story goes, in the 1450s the local seamen found a picture of the Virgin Mary perched upon the stone in the sea. Later the sailors of Perast started transporting stones to the site, and after two hundred years the Our Lady of the Rock church took its place on the artificial island. This site has become supremely important to the citizens of Perast and received numerous donations and gifts, including pieces of art, which today make an art collection of historical significance.
Conte Hotel Montenegro wedding
Conte Hotel takes pride of premium location in the town of Perast. Ideally located right on the seaside, it offers unobstructed views of the two magic island churches of Perast.

It is a unique setting for guests to delight in a Montenegro wedding reception and admire the scenery of Perast and the enchanting islets of St. George and Our Lady of the Rocks.
Wedding in Herceg Novi
Wedding in Herceg Novi is a beautiful choice for couples that want a destination wedding off the beaten path. It is a lovely coastal resort developed during eighteenth-century Austro-Hungarian rule. Though situated at the very entrance to Boka Kotorska, it is yet usually bypassed by visitors. On the steep town lanes, you will find elegant villas and exotic vegetation brought here by sailors from around the world.
The walled old town is Herceg Novi’s most appealing part where most historical sites are concentrated. XVI century Kanli Kula fortress will be the first to meet you in the old town. It now serves as summer theatre stage. One of the main squares, Bellavista, or “beautiful view”, is dominated by the unique Orthodox Church of Holy Archangel Michael. The Old Town also boasts a XV century Forte Mare fortress visible from anywhere in the city.
Descending to the Promenade, towards the eastern part of town, you will reach the ruins of Citadela fortress, constructed during Venetian rule but destroyed by an earthquake in the XX century. Herceg Novi borders picturesque ancient villages Rose, Mamula, and Žanjice not to be missed during the summer months.
The deep blue waters of this secluded destination will offer you life-long memories of your beautiful Montenegro wedding.
