I would also love to get together with some fellow central Florida brides-to-be! I’m planning for my wedding in Orlando in February, but most of my friends and family are still up in New Jersey. I’d love to have someone to talk “wedding” with ๐Ÿ™‚ Count me in!

my Fiance and I are talking about coming down maybe next weekend. 

 

@floridabeachbride:  What did you mean here “Oh, btw: It’s wierd by the Front civic center is actually cheaper and nicer..just a fyi.”  Did you mean Front Street Park?  I am not totally in “love” with the Eau Gallie civic center but I’m sure it will be fine.  Part of the reason we selected it was a) you only loose $25 if you cancel b)they have a kitchen and ice maker c) it can accomodate our guests in two seperate rooms (i’ll tell you my idea later). 

The parking was another reason we didn’t do the Oaks.  I guess they say they have complimentary vallet parking but still, ick.  Also they say they kinda rope off that area of the patio but you still will have the public walking by and I’m sure 1 or 2 teenage wedding crashers.  I guess it would be an ok venue if you had to be 100% inside but even then the inside isn’t that nice.

Anyways, I haven’t really started looking at vendors via budget yet (is that bad?) I am just trying to get something books since the wedding is in June and things seem to be getting booked quickly. 

My mom talked to DJ Waylon (?) and really liked him but he’s already booked June 5th.  DJ Shane is another one in Melbourne that is popular but I think we may be a bit more low key than him.  I guess he made a comment to my mom that “he shares the stage with the bride and groom”  Even my mom was like, hello, it better be ALL about the bride and groom.  So not sure what thats all about.

Another thing we aren’t sure about is that the EGCC (Eau Gallie Civic CEnter) has brown metal folding chairs which I will not use.  Even doing chair covers I feel like guests will still be uncomfortable sitting on a folding chair.  Know any good rental places for cheap chairs?

I am soooo excited.

We went and looked at the Brevard Zoo this weekend and it is great for our venue.

The inside is pretty large, has really pretty chandeliers and wall sconces.  Everything is in a nice beige and brown.  There are windows thate overlook foliage.  There is a wrap around deck and a huge porch area overlooking the giraffe exhibit.  Also, private bathrooms, unlike our other potential venue (the eau gallie civic center).

 

I am so excited!

Just wanted to update you gals about our recent venue change.  I am HOPING that we can switch to the Brevard Zoo.  It is right off of 95 for anyone closer to Viera area.
