Ciao, looking for any brides who have had/are planning on getting married in Lake Como, we have been thinking about possible wedding locations since our families are all over the world. How was your overall experiance, did you rent a villa for the whole night or have to relocate for the reception? Was it more expensive than originally planned, and any tips, suggestions? Many Thanks!

Hi – I am getting married on Lake Como July 2017.
Are you working with a wedding planner? Initally, we were thinking we wouldn’t to save $$, but realized the peace of mind that comes with a planner is worth the price. Where are you thinking for your ceremony venue and reception?
We are having our ceremony at Villa del Balbianello and reception in Bellagio since that seemed like a nice town with more options for places for guests to stay. There are some helpful threads on TripAdvisor that helped me get started with planning.

Hi thanks for the info! We havent booked anything yet, but I would definetely hire a wedding planner, I feel like i would rip my hair out if I didnt. How is your experiance with your planner so far?
I have my heart set on Vila del Balbianello, infact I ust contacted them this weekend. Are you having a large guest list, ours would be around 20 people so reasonable small. Now i dont know if we should have a reception at the vila or relocate somewhere else, my budget is around $15,000 – 20,000, I would rather not go above that so I dont know what would be more budget friendly. How long ago did you book your venue if i may ask?
