Monday Mood Board: A Wedding By The Waterside…
Good morning beauties, how are you all today? I do hope that you enjoyed your 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.
Anyhow, today we are looking to warmer climates and sunnier days, as I am sure that many of you will either be finalising wedding or honeymoon plans! So, we thought we would treat you with a style feature for our favourite readers about weddings at the dreamy Lake Como, Italy. Be it you’re looking for some destination wedding inspo, or perhaps a new location to tick off from your bucket list? We promise that you will adore the Italian chic styling, breath taking views and wedding pretty nestled in today’s ‘Monday Mood Board feature’
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 or lakeside 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 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-eyes over that stationery?
