The wedding planner
I have always been interested in event planning. After organizing several events for my friends, I began to plan events for various organizations. After planning events throughout several different industries I realized that the one area I was really passionate about was wedding planning. That being said…I’ve been planning destination weddings in beautiful Croatia for five years now!
My goal is to create a day that the bride, groom and their guests will never forget! Together with my team, we make sure that our couples’ personalities and wishes come to life through locations, entertainment, styling and all other elements of the wedding. Every detail counts, but what counts the most is the stress free months of planning before the BIG day that our couples can enjoy knowing that everything is taken care of. I love the exciting look on their faces after they say their “I do’s” – those looks shine with happiness and shout “WE DID IT!”.
When I’m not planning weddings I travel, do yoga and read obsessively. Travelling gives me the opportunity to learn more about and experience different cultures, while meeting unique,inspiring people. When I need to relax or just be with myself I listen to Diana Krall, Jamiroquai or The White Stripes. I am a life-long fan of author John Irving, Scandinavian thrillers (Jo Nesbo, Stieg Larson..), Jack Kerouac’s “On the road”, but I also love non-fiction such as Malcom Gladwell, Nassim Taleb and various history books too.
For as long as I can remember I have wanted to make things beautiful. As a child on play dates I would always be more interested in my playmate’s bedroom decor than in her newest toy collection. As a young adult rather than pursuing a career in design, I chose to climb the corporate ladder. After several successful years in business marketing I realized I still wanted to redecorate every room I walked into. This is when I decided to make my dream a reality, and began an apprenticeship with a wedding design company in Vancouver, Canada. Shortly after my career change,another life altering decision was made when my family and I decided to leave Vancouver and move to Split, Croatia. Hence, the creation of Prestiž Dizajn in 2009. Since then I have had the pleasure of designing hundreds of weddings and events in Dalmatia.
During this time I have also travelled to the United States and received my certification as an Accredited Event Designer through the Institute of Wedding and Event Design. I pride myself on the personal touch I give to each client, and every time I expect to exceed rather than meet their expectations. My greatest reward is making each clients dream design come to life!
Besides being an event designer, I am also a wife, mother of two teenagers, and an avid baker! My favourite pastime is entertaining friends and family at our summer home in the coutryside.
Logistics and operations manager
My first job within the event industry was working at an international tourism fair and movie festival as an assistant to the senior event planning committee. From there I worked my way up to becoming the festival project coordinator.
I loved every part of that job, especially the opportunity to help create the general concept and overall vision of the project, as well as dealing with all the little details that are so crucial for any successful event. Working on these major projects provided me with a vast amount of experience and industry contacts. It also allowed me the opportunity to develop my own personal style and approach to event planning. A transition from these projects to the more personal events was somehow natural for me. I’ve always loved being in direct contact with my clients.
In my free time I am a little bit of a sports geek – I enjoy playing football and running (but not too much) and I follow every possible sport and sporting event. Apart from sports, I simply love to travel (but who doesn’t) …whether it’s a trip to a local island in Croatia, a weekend road trip, or a bigger trip abroad, I love it all! And yes, my grandpa has a little vineyard and an olive orchard. I am trying to learn the tricks of the trade so that I can carry on our family tradition of wine and olive oil making.
“We had the most wonderful time thanks to Milda and Mario, and the rest of the team on the day! We had a great day and were so lucky to have such lovely weather on our wedding day. I cannot thank you enough for helping us make this occasion so special.“
…Tracy and Paul (United Kingdom)
“I can’t thank enough Milda for everything she did for us. It was the most perfect day.
…Natasha and James (United Kingdom)
“What can we say?!? We so appreciate the time and effort you gave in making this a wonderful, memorable and just plain fun occasion! Your attention to details was just amazing and was taken care of in a very professional manner! Since our first contact we had peace of mind and you did not disappoint. You really made the whole organisation easy and the day of completely stress free for us and our families.
If we would do it over again we wouldn’t even think twice about hiring you again and we wouldn’t change a thing! Thank you so very much for all of your hard work, planning and making our wedding so unforgettable!!!”
