RECOMMENDED WEDDING PLANNERS IN THE LAKE COMO AREA
This is who we used because they are located in Varenna, where our ceremony and reception were. Definitely reach out and explain your aesthetic, expectations, and look through their website to see which wedding galleries stand out to you. That way, you can be paired up with someone that aligns with your expectations. They have great reviews and a very nice team that knows Varenna venues well.

I reached out to them when I was planning, and they were so nice, helpful, and detailed. They'll send you detailed PDFs about their preferred venues, but fair warning, theirs are on the pricey end of the spectrum. Once they mentioned in the e-mail that they coordinated John Legend & Chrissy Teigen's wedding, I pretty much assumed I'd be priced out and didn't ask further. However, if this is in your budget, their galleries are exquisite and this would be a great option. They don't publish pricing (which also tells me $$$), but I'm gonna take a guess here and say that this is probably the highest end planner based in the area.

Located in Bellano (one town over from Varenna), this planner has the most reviews I've seen online and they are all very positive, especially about the owner Gemma. From their site: We work with Lake Como’s most unique, exclusive and iconic venues hand-picked for their impeccable levels of standard, spectacular views and ability to provide only the very best wedding experiences.

This is a larger planning firm, with arms that specialize in different regions of Italy. So they probably have a wide range of resources, recommendations, and expertise, but make sure have strong familiarity with the town/venues you want first! It also looks like they have tiered pricing; which is great in case you don't want the full suite.
