Preparing for the big day requires plenty of planning that starts with finding the perfect Orlando wedding venue. Whether you are hosting a large wedding or a more intimate ceremony here are some ideas on how to make your Orlando wedding celebration a day…and night…to remember.
Orlando Wedding Planning Tips
- Does the venue offer more than one setting for your celebrations? Weddings don’t have to be static and relegated to one room or one courtyard. An enchanting ceremony by a fountain, may lead to cocktails in a courtyard surrounded by sparkling lights, to be followed by a sit down dinner service in a romantic restaurant, and perhaps end with a dance party in a ballroom.
- Are there other activities available on site for the bride and groom’s parties and families? Keeping a group of people entertained while giving yourself the time you need to prepare for your nuptials is a big task. Seek out Orlando wedding venues where there are alternative activities for all age groups. The guys may tee off early on the onsite golf courses in the day, and head out boating or fishing later, or you may plan a ladies cocktail lunch followed by personalized spa treatments for bridal parties that will relax and pamper.
- Wedding planning services and knowledgeable staff? Does your Orlando wedding venue offer a personal wedding planning team to ensure every aspect of your celebration from photograph locations to wedding favors are exactly what you want. Remove the stress of being everywhere for everyone and let the focus be on you as you prepare to walk down the aisle.

Marina del Rey – Private Lakefront
With a sparkling blue lake as your backdrop, the grand lawn at Marina Del Rey is a delightful wedding site. Surrounded by old oak and cypress trees from which hangs soft Spanish moss, exchange your vows amidst your family and friends.
Afterwards it’s the ideal setting for photographing those picture perfect moments of the bride and groom holding hands, flower girls twirling in their dresses or grandparents swapping stories. Later everyone gathers in the welcoming ambiance of the onsite reception center which features floor to ceiling windows boasting a panoramic view of the lake.
Legends Wedding Courtyard – Gardens and Sparkling Lake
The Legends Wedding Courtyard is well named for the kind of fairy tale setting it provides. Lake Harris sparkles in the background, and seasonal flowers and old oak trees highlight a lush green grassy area. Water flows quietly from a lovely three tiered fountain as you stand next to your partner to celebrate life and love. It’s a gorgeous garden setting where your larger groups can relax and mingle.
