Orlando Wedding Venues:
Whether you're craving a warm outdoor setting or Disney characters at your "I Do's," Orlando wedding venues have your bridal bases covered.
Orlando wedding venues - Disney World:
If you've been dreaming of a princess wedding ever since your were 8, then consider one of Walt Disney World's storybook ceremonies. The theme park hosts 1,500 weddings a year at its Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Polynesian Resort, Boardwalk Resort and lakeside Disney Wedding pavilions. There are three packages to choose from (Escapes, Wishes and Couture) with multiple locations inside and outside the parks. At the popular Disney wedding pavilion, styled like a Victorian chapel overlooking the Seven Seas Lagoon, brides can choose between arriving in a glass carriage pulled by six horses, just like Cinderella, or rolling up in a sleek white Rolls Royce. Flowers, food and all the details can be handled by the Disney wedding planning staff, and behind the altar is a perfect view of Sleeping Beauty's castle.
For a few thousand more bucks, you can tie the knot right under Cinderella's Castle in the park, although no receptions are allowed inside the Kingdom. Or you can even get hitched in France, Japan, Italy, China or one of Epcot's many other exotic global locales.
For an elegant setting without Mickey and Minnie, the downtown Courtyard at Lake Lucerne offers a romantic gazebo setting surrounded by lush gardens and four historic Victorian-style homes. The belle of downtown, the Grand Bohemian Hotel, also offers a rich Broadway-like downtown setting with a sumptuous ballroom and eclectic art gallery.
Orlando wedding venue - Casa Feliz
Across town in the upscale neighborhood of Winter Park is one of Orlando's prettiest wedding venues, the Casa Feliz. A red-brick farmhouse complete with a bell and tower, Casa Feliz, or "happy house," includes a fountain and beautiful gardens and overlooks the Winter Park Golf Course. The blue-shingled Highland Manor in Apopka is another charming site. A Victorian house with its own restaurant and chapel, Highland Manor was built in 1903 and has a crystal-chandeliered ballroom that seats 200. Finally, the Lake Mary Events Center just north of Orlando features high ceilings, marble hallways and romantic indoor and outdoor views of West Crystal Lake, with plenty of seating for guests.
