Lake Como: A Celebrity Wedding Enclave 

by The Travel Siblings

 

Italy and celebrities go together like wedding cookies and Sambuca. Don’t take our word for it, history proves this love affair, from Sophia Loren’s Rosato Villa on the Amalfi Coast to Jackie Kennedy’s chic Capri getaways.

But it wasn’t until the early 2000s that George Clooney shifted the public’s amore north when he purchased a multi-million dollar villa on Lake Como.

And then….  Bollywood happened.

This week, it-couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh tied the knot at Villa del Balbianello, an 18th century Lake Como Villa. The union has made global headlines, begging many to question, is Lake Como the dreamiest wedding destination of them all?

Accessibility

Milan Malpensa Airport is just a 2-hour jaunt to Lake Como, making it an excellent hub for guests arriving from all over the world. However, once guests arrive, how do you get 400+ people on location easily and effortlessly? That’s where we come in! Using a professional travel agent team to handle arrivals gives couples’ peace of mind knowing all flights are monitored and guests will arrive in style. And not to mention–Milan being the fashion and production capital of Italy–the area lends itself to accessing all things fabulous for the wedding; think anything from a couture gown to persimmon-colored cocktail napkins.

Dreaming up the ultimate setting

Venues in Lake Como are all about villas or legendary hotels. From the old-world charm of the famous Villa D’este to new and chic at Le Sereno. We know how to match a couples’ needs with the right property, according to their dream vision. The best part about planning in Lake Como is that the lake provides a back drop that is a blank canvas- where we have recreated a studio 54 themed wedding to Cirque du Soleil to an 18th Century Contessa costume ball.

Experience

We wow guests with a little help from our “Siblings approved” ground contacts – whether it be arranging a private cooking lesson on how to prepare risotto or a Champagne boat tour around the lake.

Choosing the Right Season for Your Wedding Needs

Deepika and Ranveer chose an excellent time for their wedding. Lake Como Shoulder season affords couples and their guests the luxury of feeling as if they are the only ones in the region. Takeover and villa rentals to accommodate many guests are possible this time of year. Not to mention for a celebrity, shoulder season is imperative to avoid massive crowds and tourists.
