Why Lake Garda Should be your Wedding Location

Beautiful Lake Garda, the perfect wedding location

Halfway between Venice and Milan, Lake Garda (Lago di Garda, in Italian) is one of the most popular wedding destinations in Italy — and for good reason! With unparalleled scenery, boat trips, wine tours, and plenty of other activities on offer, we think Lake Garda should be your wedding location, and we’d like to give you a few reasons why…

Stunning Scenery

The perfect backdrop to a wedding at Lake Garda

The main reason to choose Lake Garda for your wedding location is its scenery. This is the biggest day of your life, so it’s important that the scenery matches the occasion. Lake Garda’s stunning promenades, overlooking mountains, and beautiful buildings all make it one of the most scenic places on the planet. A quick Google image search will give you an idea of the area’s staggering beauty. In fact, Lake Garda is so picturesque that it’s hard to take a bad photo of it! This makes it ideal for wedding photos. In the months and years after your wedding, your photographs become the most important mementos of your big day; choosing Lake Garda as your wedding location ensures that your wedding photos will look incredible.

Water Sports Galore!

There is plenty to do on Lake Garda, including dinghy sailing

With everything from sailing, fishing, kayaking, and jet-skiing, Lake Garda is the ideal location for anyone looking to have fun on the water in the days before or after your wedding. The various water sports available add value for all your guests who make the journey to Italy for your wedding. If you want to be really thoughtful, you could make a little booklet of the various fun water sports and other activities guests can take part in before and after the wedding.

Close to Milan and Venice

The sun soaked canals of Venice

If you stay on the southern edge of the lake, you will be close to both Milan and Venice! These two cities have a lot to offer you and your wedding party, so you may like to organise a couple of day trips. Alternatively, you could get married in one of the little towns surrounding Lake Garda and spend your honeymoon in Venice or Milan (or both)!

Here at Venice Events, we offer several amazing Venice tours and activities, including a tour of the Doge’s Palace and a romantic gondola ride for two; perfect for newlyweds! The beauty, romance, and activities of Lake Garda are a big enough draw for any wedding party; such close proximity to two of Italy’s most beautiful cities is a huge bonus!

Charming Lakeside Towns and Villages

If it’s the rustic Italian villages and little towns you’re interested in, you can avoid Venice and Milan altogether, choosing instead to visit a few of the beautiful little settlements along Lake Garda. One of these towns may well be the perfect setting for your wedding!

Bardolino

You might make Bardolino your wedding location if you love its multicoloured harbour area, cobbled streets, fine restaurants, and incredible local red wine. Bardolino isn’t a rustic little village; it’s an exquisite, refined town with a lot to offer any wedding party.

Malcesine

Malcesine has a wonderfully unique aesthetic created largely by its intact medieval architecture and outdoor terraces. There are great views of Lake Garda and Monte Baldo that will make for some incredible wedding photographs. Another advantage of choosing Malcesine as your wedding location is that you and your guests can take advantage of the hiking and skiing opportunities made available by its proximity to Monte Baldo!
