Help for Florida wedding, planning from afar

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm a newbie here... Me and my partner are getting married in October in Florida (excitement cheesy.gif ) but we need your help! The date is coming up quickly but we still have some vital things to decide.



As we live in Ireland we are going with a full wedding organiser (someone to take care of decorations, photgrapher, etc.) but we're torn between two, Destination Weddings Florida with Sherri Lester or Abby Affordable Weddings. Has anyone worked with either who could help me decide?



Also we're unsure of a place, we know we want to get married on a beach but since we're disney mad we'll be staying in Orlando so we want one within 2 hours of Orlando. Cocoa Beach, Clearwater or Pass-a-grille in St. Pete's. The planner will depend on the place we choose too as Sherri does Cocoa Beach but charges extra for the others and Abby Affordable Weddings does Clearwater.



Also, any advice on a nice buffet in Orlando for afterwards? We want to head back to Internaitonal Drive after the ceremony (we'll have a mini beach side reception first with cake etc.) so everyone can be close to the hotel for home time, so we want a nice buffet place for a meal for about 20 people?


Any advice or help is much appreciated!!

We were looking into Cocoa Beach as well and was chatting with Beach Weddings by Joanie who seemed very professional.


However we are now looking towards Siesta Key instead for the white sand beach.


Best of luck & happy planning!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
