Today we’re excited to bring you Part 2 of our Lake Como venue list, and we're focusing on micro weddings. One outcome of COVID is the explosion of micro weddings and the desire to travel - intimate destination celebrations not only make planning less stressful, but they also give you more time with your people! The Lake Como region is made for micro weddings - venue selections to guest itinerary options make it a dreamy getaway for all.
Why consider an intimate celebration? Below we’re breaking down some of our top reasons:
More quality time to go around! Less guests means more time to enjoy meaningful conversations.
The intimate setting makes your guests feel like participators rather than spectators.
A smaller guest list allows more budget to allocate towards food, drinks, and other priorities.
The planning experience - a smaller guest count means a more manageable planning process, with less stress. Want to make custom place cards? You've got the time and the budget - 20 place cards versus 200. Exactly.
Now that we've sold you, check out our top 3 favorite venues in Lake Como to host your intimate affair - passport + vaccines required!
Set off fireworks (literally) at one of the oldest manors in this region. The architectural details, both inside and out, make a great launching pad for design ideas. Their 6 miles of scenery filled with exotic species, century old trees and botanical oddities will keep our guests exploring. And their manicured grounds, with a variety of spaces, create the perfect opportunity to dream up micro experiences throughout the evening.
Set in its own parkland, Villa Giuseppina is one of the legendary properties of Lake Como. Simplicity is their specialty - especially when it comes to interior decor. They keep the focus on the 16th century windows and highlight the circular gazebo (perfect for your wedding ceremony). The property recently underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment and we can't wait to check it out, preferably by enjoying a cocktail poolside overlooking the lake!
Considering a private venue for you and your guests to enjoy the celebration weekend? Representing the pinnacle of luxury on Lake Como, Villa La Cassinella offers mesmerizing views of the lake within a private setting. Surrounded by natural beauty and decorated with Italian antique furniture, this very secluded property can only be reached by water. While this requires a bit more logistics, it is well worth the planning! The villa also comes iwth concierge service that offers personal shoppers, beauticians, and even dance instructors to prepare you for your big day!
These venues allow for a full takeover, meaning you can create exactly the experience you want for your celebration weekend. With each venue coming full staffed (drivers, personal trainers, etc) you and your guests are covered for every scenario.
