Bollywood weddings are something that we get really excited about. And can you blame us? From celebs to opulence and extravagance, these filmi weddings are much like a blockbuster movie and we have our popcorn ready each time someone pops the question and it's a 'yes.' The latest couple to get our attention is Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The two have been dating since a while now and don't shy away from admitting to their love in public. Obviously they have never spoken about it but their actions speak louder than words. So, it is easy to see why we are damn excited about them making things official, no?
You can surely tell that we are keeping a close watch on the developments for we were the first ones to tell you that the two are all set to tie the knot in November this year. However, later, we also told you how the wedding might just take place in October this year. And while we always knew that the couple was planning a European wedding, a few weeks ago we learned that they had zeroed in on Italy as their wedding destination of choice. And not just any place in Italy, the couple is apparently all set to get married in Lake Como. So if you thought that their Italian wedding might be a leaf out of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's Tuscan wedding diaries, you are entirely wrong. Let's tell you why in a little more detail.

So, for starters, you should know that Lake Como is the holy grail of destination weddings. Yes, the place is almost always booked for weddings. Situated in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, Lake Como is a short drive from Milan. The lake itself is a gorgeous glacial wonder with crystal clear waters. The shores of the lake are dotted with exclusive villas that host weddings all year round. These villas spell grandeur. No wonder then that a lot of celebs fly down to get married there.
It is actually quite easy to see why Ranveer and Deepika chose this as their wedding destination. Firstly it is exclusive, befitting their celebrity status. Secondly, most of these villas can only be accessed through the lake, thus making it very easy for them to ensure that there is no breach of security. Also, the paparazzi can be kept at bay thanks to the strategical positioning of these venues. Apart from these factors, the fact that Lake Como provides a stunning backdrop for the wedding, might have also played an important role in their decision to choose it as their wedding destination. You also have to factor in that the wedding will be taking place in November when the leaves turn. How pretty will it be when the trees all turn flaming shades of orange, red, green and yellow - what a perfect setting for a colourful and vibrant Indian wedding! Don't believe us? Check out the following pictures to get a glimpse into what you can expect Deepika and Ranveer's wedding to look like...

Don't know about you, but we surely can envision DP and RS posing for pics here...
Lake Como nests at the bottom of the mighty Alps, BTW. Yes, those peaks might also star in Deepika-Ranveer wedding album.
We know, right? The wedding, with Lake Como as the backdrop, might just be one of the most stunning affairs that we would have witnessed in the longest time. It has all the makings of a happily ever after tale, which will be an apt culmination to the fairytale romance that Ranveer and Deepika seem to represent.
However, getting married at this exclusive and secluded venue won't come cheap for the couple. No matter which venue they ultimately zero in on, they will be shelling out a fortune. Even a two-hour wedding amounts to a rent of Rs 5 lakh and we all know that Indian weddings can go on for hours. But we are sure that the couple is not pinching a penny when it comes to their wedding and hence the amazing choice.
