Our reception will be at Lake Receptions in Mount Dora. We’re paying about $35 per person for food, which doesn’t include the $500 room fee, open bar and the extra fees for table overlays and chair covers. 

Good Luck!  Smile

Mount Dora is about 40 minutes NW of Orlando, but it works great for us since we live there and the majority of my family lives within a few miles.  Have you checked out any of the Disney wedding packages?  I’m not sure what their prices are, but they may offer something in your price range.

We are having our reception most likely at The Tap Room at Dubsdread. It is right near downtown Orlando. The price for the room rental is around $995. We are getting our per person price around $50 a person. That includes the toast and we are only doing sangria for the alcohol/signature drink.

eta: they have set menus, but Cathie came up with a menu that  met our need perfectly! And worked with the price we wanted.

We are using The Lake Mary Events Center which is about 25 minutes from Downtown. The building rentals are reasonable and they have a list of associated caterers to choose from which makes for competition and more menu options. Also, remember that if you are inviting 175 people and it’s a destination wedding, roughly 30% of them are likely to decline anyway.

We looked at the Embassy Suites hotel in Altamonte Springs, FL which is right off of I-4.  I initially marked it as a place to look because I wanted a June wedding, and an outdoor wedding and in Florida that’s not a super combo heat and rain wise.  The embassy suites has an indoor gazebo and garden that you get gratis when you book the reception too.  The reception room is standard hotel, but they take care of everything and from my recollection my mom was jumping for joy at the per person price…don’t recall what it was though.  In the end the fiance had a groomzilla moment and insisted he wasn’t getting married in front of strangers (it is a hotel so technically anyone checking in and out and anyone who walks out of their room and looks down on the inner courtyard could see you…but mom and I have wondered several times if we should have let it go that easy…how awesome would it have been to have a room to get married in, steps from the ceremony, steps from teh reception, and where all out of towners can be…no one has to drive after, and no toting of all my crap around all day…
