Croatia/Austria/Dolomites??

Hi!
I am planning a belated honeymoon, and am having a hard time limiting myself! Originally, my husband and I wanted a 2-country honeymoon, with a few days in Vienna, Austria followed by a few days on the beach at Croatia (and maybe Plitvice mixed in there too!). Then, I saw a friend's photos from Therme Merano in the Dolomites! And now, I want a 3 country trip!

We are aiming for 11-12 days, and I'm fine with 3-4 days in Vienna and Croatia and just 2 in Therme Merano. What I need insight on is the order of the trip. We'll be flying from DC to one of those places. Which is easiest/cheapest to fly to? The 3 cities are in a triangle with each other so I can't decide the best route. I think I'd prefer to end with Therme Merano or Croatia?

Has anyone done anything like this with these 3 places?

Thanks!

A few remarks:
Merano has absolutely nothing to do with the Dolomites. It's a nice place in the wineyards, with tons of easy hiking trails and handy for day trips to the Engadin-Bernina aarea (Switzerland), Lake Garda or the historic city center of Bolzano/Bozen. It can get very hot in summer. IMO it is not worth the detour from Vienne.

Big triangle for the time frames you describe. Are you traveling by car or by train?

I don't think you can do that itinerary well with 11-12 days. But I would not despair over it--there is plenty to enjoy.
What month are you traveling, and where are you traveling from? (I ask the latter because there are limited direct flights to Croatia in summer). I have flown to Croatia via Vienna, so it is a good place to transit through. I would look at flying to Croatia and flying home from there. Overland travel with a stop in Italy in between is just going to eat your time. Plus, I honeymooned in Croatia, so I have a bias.
