COFFEE WITH THE BRIDE: Lorraine Dolan

Starting from today, Coffee with the bride represents our monthly topic and it will be published every first Monday of the month - our brides will share their insights of the wedding process of planning and wedding day itself. We believe these information will be helpful to any bride-to-be!

Lorraine is our bride of the month, so, let's dip into her story!


How two of you meet each other? What is your engagement story?

We met at a university in London. We were both there to complete the same 1-year course. We were really good friends for about 4 or 5 months and then we started going out. We stayed in London for 2 more years and then decided to move to the Middle East together. We got engaged in the Maldives. We went there to celebrate my birthday and Kevin surprised me on our second night there with a letter and a ring on the deck of our water villa.

How you decided to have a wedding in Dubrovnik? How your friends and family reacted when they heard about your wedding location?

At first, I had wanted to get married at home in Ireland, as we're always away from our family and friends and I thought it might be easier. We looked at a beautiful venue and provisionally booked it. Kevin however, had other ideas. He wasn't interested in getting married at home at all! His eyes would glaze over with boredom at any mention of it. But when I talked about a wedding abroad, he was straight on his phone looking up places. Eventually, I gave in and never looked back. We chose Dubrovnik because it's absolutely stunning and not many of our friends or family had been to it. So we thought a new/different location would make it more memorable. We're also big Game of Thrones fans, so that kind of solidified the decision for us.

What was the most stressful thing about your wedding planning?

Helping our family to book flights and accommodation. It took some people a while to realize that it wasn't a typical package holiday destination.

What was your 'must have' for the wedding?

The ship from Old Town to Cavtat. It was unbelievable! It's all the guests talked about and they couldn't believe how brilliant it was. It really was worth the extra money and it was a great way of cooling down from the heat in Old Town.

How did you feel just before you walked down the aisle?

I was 100% fine going to the church, but as soon as the doors opened and everyone turned to stare at me, I started to cry! I'm not normally an emotional person, but I'm also not comfortable with alot of attention, so I think it all just hit me at that moment. I think it was just overwhelming that so many of our family and friends made the effort to come to our wedding (we had 150 guests) and I was just so grateful to have them all there.

What worried you the most night before the wedding?

Walking down the aisle.

Looking back, is there anything you would change?

Not one thing! Matea made sure everything at our wedding was perfect and that we had everything we wanted and needed. She made amazing last minute recommendations for the venue that made a huge difference. We just can't thank her enough for what she pulled off.

What was the funniest thing that happened on the day?

I got a fancy little red car into Old Town with my Dad and a crowd of Chinese tourists followed us the whole way and kept taking photos of us. My photographer Vero was hilarious, trying to get them away from us. She was amazing too!

What 3 advices would you give to other brides planning their wedding?

1. Visit Dubrovnik before you get married. I seen venues online and had more or less chosen the one I wanted. But when we went to see it, I didn't like it at all and ended up choosing a venue I hadn't even considered.

2. Food tasting – don't be afraid to ask the hotel to change the menu up a bit to suit the needs of your family and friends/culture. Our hotel was amazing for this and nothing was too much trouble.

3. Most importantly – get a wedding planner! We would not have been able to do all the paperwork and planning ourselves. I thought it was going to be soo difficult organizing everything but Matea just made every detail and every decision so easy for us. I couldn't recommend Dubrovnik Event enough!

  5. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/

  6. Going through divorce with the partner you love is like been in hell, my husband filed for a divorce without giving me reasons. I was totally down for I had no idea of what was happening and I tried to confront him to know what led to such action but he didn't give me listening ears.. I tried getting to know what happened through his family members but that didn't work either and this time was going mad about everything till I searched for help online and I came across Lord Zakuza contact number +1 (740) 573 9483 and I messaged him to let him know what I was going through and Lord Zakuza encouraged and promised to help me with his powerful spell and within 48 hours after contacting Lord Zakuza and followed all his instructions, my attorney called me to get me informed that the divorce case has been cancelled and after 30 minutes, I got a call from my husband pleading and begging for forgiveness and right now we are back together with so much love and care.
