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!
