THINKING ABOUT A LAKE COMO DESTINATION WEDDING?

That sounds too crazy. It's so far! Will anyone come? It's probably too expensive. Isn't that where George & Amal live? Mmm, pizza.

This was my exact thought process when the idea of an Italian wedding crossed my mind. Feeling very excited (while heavily tempering my expectations), I began searching the depths of the google translated internet for an answer to my biggest question; can I pull off my dream Italian wedding affordably? 

If you've found yourself here because you're wondering the same thing, let me save you some time -- yes, you can.

Como Away With Us is my own wedding website-turned-travel-blog that I wanted to use to help prospective Lake Como brides and their guests learn about the area, the logistics of getting married there, plan events, find things to do, and more. Above all, I want to share with others who dream of getting married in this area that if you do the work, it is an incredibly accessible and affordable place to have a wedding. The perception of Lake Como's towns may appear to be filled with diamonds, but I'm here to help you find the hidden gems.
