mmb03 :  I live in Lakeland FL – have you looked into lake mirror???  lake eola in orlando is probably over priced I’m sure.  I bet you could even look in the plant city area and find maybe a nice farm area.    Maybe look into Bok Tower??? They have options for 50 people that are like 800 bucks a really look beautiful and then like someone said maybe rent out a private room at a local resutarant.  They also showed an all inclusive option for 72 guests at about 3400K. You may be able to knock it down to 2900K for your guest count and if they other options.  


Also look into Hollis Gardens in lakeland???  Beautiful botanical garden part of parks and rec I’m sure they have some good options across from lake mirror.

mmb03 :  $40/person is CRAZY for breakfast. I live in NYC, where all is expensive, and that’s too much. Look into restaurant catering. We found a local restaurant that would cater dinner–lobster, baked scrod, steak tips, potatoes, rolls, salad, etc. for $20/person. We didn’t end up going with them because it was buffet only, but there ARE cheaper options in the world. 

I call out for catered breakfasts at work events and we usually spend $250 for 40 people at a local restaurant. That includes scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, toast and pancakes. Again, in one of the most expensive cities in the US. 

Good luck!
