- Wedding: September 2011
This is my first post on weddingbee, born out of sheer desperation. My wedding is in September, but I’m leaving the country in April for five months, and I have to book my venue ASAP.
I’ve looked at a LOT of venues in Central Florida, but nothing really fits what I’m looking for.
Here’s the scoop – our wedding is very whimsy, think gypsy meets alice in wonderland, but a little royal. Colors are deep purple and gold, everything is very vivid. My dress looks like a fairy queen.
I want a venue with a lot of character and pop, and I really want to avoid the overused, boring, wedding-ey hotel ballroom thing.
An outdoor venue would be great, but everything I’ve seen is like a manicured formal garden, which is just wrong.
I’ve just been to Maitland Art Center today, which was really awesome but far too small. I need something big enough for 110 guests and a decent dance floor.
SO… anyone know of an awesome outdoor, or really cool indoor, venue in central florida (orlando, ocala, maitland, apopka, tampa) that could work for me?
