Hello! I’m an Orlando Bride. πŸ™‚ I’m not getting married until November 2009, so I’m all very new to the planning process!

Another central florida bride here! Brevard County, but I work in Orlando. It is great to see other CFL brides here!

So far we have flowers and cake under control. The guest list is totally out of control! We are going to have to have a bit of a battle with the parents on narrowing things down. I work over 50 hours a week so it makes it hard to plan things. I really need to check the to-do list and get cracking!

 What about you ladies? How is the Ocala wedding planning? A good friend of mine got married in Ocala a few years ago, it was really pretty and outdoors.

The only thing I’ve done so far is set a date! Since it’s over a year and a half away, I have been just looking for ideas, especially venues, and trying to figure out what our budget is going to look like.

There are so many options in central florida… a beach wedding, a downtown orlando wedding, a small garden wedding… I’m still at that point where I’m daydreaming about what I want! I think in the next few months we are going to be seriously looking into venues. There are a few spots in Orlando that I love, but I also think that looking outside the city might be a little more budget-friendly.

Hi ladies! I’m already married but a looong time weddingbee reader (yes the addiction doesn’t go away=), excited to see there are ladies from the Central FL area on here! =) Congrats to you all!

thriftsiren- I was on a super tight budget when I got married and had the same concerns you do about venues. I got married at Tanner Hall in Winter Garden. It’s right on Lake Apopka and gorgeous at sunset.

We are working under a pretty tight budget too… things add up so fast! Things have been crazy with work, I feel like I will never get a chance to finalize things!

we are thinking of setting our budget at around $5,000-$7,000. i totally agree with the not wanting to go in debt thing. i just love all the budget-friendly tips on weddingbee.. i always figured we’d have to elope to avoid going in debt, but no.. it is possible! woohoo for thrifty central florida brides!

anyone have any good budget friendly tips that have worked for them?

The one thing that really has worked for us is really keeping the floral budget under control. We aren’t doing corsages for everyone, huge table top center pieces, etc. We are also doing a cocktail reception vs. a sit down dinner.

 Happy Planning
