    I'm looking at a wedding near Orlando Florida. We have two kids, and we want to have the wedding in Florida, and finish with a "family honeymoon" at Disney. We're planning on splitting a large house rental with our guests, and inviting people to stay and enjoy Disney (or other attractions) with us.

     

    We want to travel early January 2015, and that's where it's getting difficult, I do not want a beach wedding in January lol. Our budget (for just the wedding) is $5000 max. and I want as all inclusive and least stressful as possible. We're inviting 26 people (plus us and our two kids) and expect a few to not make it.

     

    I'm interested in this as a venue: http://www.indianriverqueen.com but it's hard to find reviews for them, and there are none here. I'd love other ideas for within 2 hours from Orlando/Kissimmee areas.

     

    The original plan was a wedding at home, and then going to Disney for the family honeymoon, but I really just wasn't happy with anything around here for that price range, and I'm really hoping this will be easier to plan.

    Hi Steph! Welcome to the forum! I live in Orlando and have actually been on the Indian River Queen twice for work functions. We did the afternoon trip and they were a lot of fun. It was a few years back so I can't remember too much about the decor. I know the top deck was casual with small tables, the middle deck has the bar and that's where they had the music and the bottom deck was the dining area which was nice. I think I have pictures, let me check this weekend and I'll get back to you!

      That would be great! Thank you :) I was hoping it would be nice, but still something a bit different for a DW. I still have to call and see if they'll work with me from a distance too, they don't specifically focus on DWs anywhere on their website.

       

      Do you have any other recommendations for the area?

        I can't figure out edit (if there even is an edit feature lol) but I meant to add that I haven't been out of Canada since I was a child, and I don't remember that. So I'm not an experienced traveler at all, which is part of why I want to go somewhere else for this :)

        I found the file with the pictures! I think most of them are of people, but I'll sort through them tomorrow for ones with some background!
