Monday Mood Board: A Wedding By The Waterside… An Italian Affair At Lake Como
Good morning lovelies, how are you all today? If you are awake for when we are scheduling this blog at 7.30am in the morning then can I politely tell you to please go back to sleep? No one should be allowed to be up at this time on a bank holiday weekend! (Unless of course, today is your wedding day, then we are sending huge congratulations your way!) Anyhow, I do hope that you are enjoying your lovely long weekend, wherever you may be. Yorkshire is treating us to some rather peculiar weather at the moment, one minute it’s sunny, the next there is terrible thunder storms. Typical that all through the working week it was gorgeous, then it plays up once the weekend commences. Once again, my BBQ is getting put away.
Anyhow, today we are looking to warmer climates and sunnier days as I am currently finalising plans for my trip to Italy in just 30 days time, eek! (100% not counting or anything…) At the moment I am on a total splurge of anything Italian related. Apologies if you aren’t a fan! So, what better than putting a blog together for my favourite readers about weddings at Lake Como, Italy?
It’s a VERY pretty post today.
Lake Como is a lot less commercialised than other Lakes in the area, boasting bags of Jurassic scenery and sleepy rustic lake side towns, which conveniently are still unspoilt from the modern needs of thousands of visiting tourists. It’s no doubt a luxury spot that is a must see for Brides and Grooms looking to plan their wedding in Italy. Lake Como plays home to the most opulent villa’s, palaces and lake-side retreats.
Which venue would you pick?
Take a look at our first board below for some dreamy idea’s.
It’s In The Detail…
Ok, so once you have got over the fact you could be getting wed very near to Clooney, it’s time to choose everything from the blooms, to stationery and catering. After all, it’s these little details that all create something truly bespoke, beautiful and perfect for your Lake Como wedding.
Take inspiration from the brilliant blue lake, lush green botanics, rustic details and typical charm that Italy has. Of course, the Pantone 2017 colour of the year is a match made in heaven for your picturesque wedding, not only does evergreen look pretty good, but it too will last much longer in the micro-climate of the lake.
Simple styling is the key, greens, creams, off-whites, blues and greys make for a cool and calm palette that will compliment the grand architecture of the venues on Lake Como. Also, this allows for a romantic, yet ever so elegant touch.
Who too has major heat-eye’s over that stationery?
For wedding gowns near you take a look at these rather gorgeous boutiques over on our luxury directory.
We do hope you have liked this weeks mood board feature! Are you too planning a trip to Italy, or, perhaps you are considering Lake Como as your wedding destination. I would love to know.
Have a beautiful day x
