How much cost an Italian wedding venue on Lake Como?
It depends on your wishes and budget. It is important to have a wedding planner that will help you to search for the venue and vendors for your wedding. A wedding planner Italian speaking is the best solution to contract with the local vendors. Sometimes we are contacted by foreign wedding planner companies because they don’t know the Italian wedding industry. I suggest looking for help if you are a planner company.
Usually, a rental cost of a venue on Lake Como is starting from 4000-5000 euros (sometimes + 22% Vat). Usually, this cost includes the indoor and outdoor areas of the venue. Sometimes it is possible to have different rental costs for the different areas of the venues, it depends on the venue’s type. The rental cost does not include the prices of the food and wine. The menu cost is starting from 100 euros + 10% Vat. Often the rental cost depends on the guest’s number (especially in the restaurants or hotels).

Not only Lake Como but also Tuscany, Amalfi Coast are the most expensive areas because are famous around the world.
