Say I do at the Palazzo
Imagine walking down the aisle over centuries-old paving stones as a string quartet plays Pachelbel’s Canon under the portico. With an exclusive wedding ceremony in our historic stone courtyard, you will be saying your “I dos” as you look out over lovely Lake Como to the Grigne Mountains rising in the distance. Due to the complex regulations in Italy, weddings performed at the Palazzo do not have legal force. Your special ceremony can bless a previously celebrated civil marriage in a service at the Palazzo or serve as a renewal of vows taken elsewhere. Following the service, as you and your wedding party take photographs and toast the happy couple on our Lakeside Sun Terrace, our staff will set up the reception in the courtyard and the elegant Sala Giunone. It goes without saying that our personal chefs, dedicated florists and caterers are all tried and true, and that your seated dinner for up to 40 or standing reception for up to 90 will run smoothly. Our La Vista junior suite is the perfect place to spend your first night as Mr. and Mrs., and with fifteen beds in total the Palazzo has plenty of room for everyone in your wedding party.
Lake Como Love Stories
Imagine you and your bridesmaids getting ready together in our spacious Isola Comacina suite and toasting to the pending nuptials on the covered terrace. Then, make your way down the ancient stone steps to the landing stage, where a vintage Riva boat waits to whisk you off to your lakeside wedding venue. You can choose from a myriad of rustic cantinas, five-star lakeside hotels and lavish historic villas for your destination wedding, and count on Palazzo del Vice Re to provide a restful retreat during preparations and a secluded haven for the first night of the rest of your lives together. Our ancient stone courtyard is the perfect backdrop for a pre-wedding cocktail party as your wedding guests arrive on Lake Como, while family and friends can reminisce together at brunch the following morning on our Lakeside Sun Terrace.
Send off the Bachelor or Bachelorette in Style
Imagine spending one of your last weekends as a singleton in a historic palace on Lake Como. Destination bachelor or bachelorette parties are all the rage – why not take your BFFs to Palazzo del Vice Re for a send-off that is as sophisticated as it is super fun? Depending on the particular whims of your wedding party, we can arrange for a sunset cruise on the lake, an exclusive experience with an iconic Italian fashion brand in Milan (for ladies and gents!), a hike followed by wine tasting in Valtellina or sports from stand-up paddleboarding and waterskiing to a friendly tennis tournament and championship golf. Our trusted local partners can entertain your group at the Palazzo with massages, alfresco yoga classes or artisanal wine and food tastings and our Lakeside Sun Terrace gives everyone a perfect spot to sit back and watch the Lake Como world go by.
