2011 Orlando Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hello brides! I am newly engaged (Sept. 18th) and my fiance and I have begun planning our Orlando destination wedding for Labor Day weekend of 2011. We are planning a "small" wedding for 100 friends and family. I live in NYC and my FH lives in Baltimore, Md. Our initial research has uncovered three venues, two of which that are definitely within our budget, Event House at Cypress Grove and The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. The third venue Mission Inn resort and club is just out of our budget, but they are reworking numbers for us. I was wondering if any brides have any experience/thoughts on these venues. Our total budget is between $15,000 and $20,000. Any advice you can provide would be great. We're also possibly interested in finding a reasonably priced FL event planner who has great connections in the area. I am impressed by Michele Butler events, but fear that she may be too expensive.

First, I highly recommend "An Affair to Remember" for planning services. They are great. I had a friend that got married at The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. I wasn't able to attend, but I heard it was beautiful! I haven't seen or heard of the other two places you mentioned, although I am sure they are very nice! :)

LOVE the Courtyard at Lake Luceren, It has lots of natural beauty and landscaping, one con its a little loud since the 408/I-4 exchange is right there. It's very romantic and a good setting for a vintage theme. Happy planning!

Thank you both for your responses. My fiance and I have booked our wedding for Sept. 4, 2011 at Mission Inn Resort. It is gorgeous, was everything that I wanted in a venue, and was within our budget! I couldn't be happier!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
