Park/Garden Wedding in Kissimmee
Hello,
Can anyone help me please!!
Me an my partner would love to marry in a beautiful spot in a public park/garden in Kissimmee and then have a meal in a nice restaurant as our reception. We are travelling from the UK and only bringing a small number of guests, in total 6-11 maximum. We don't want all the bells and whistles, just a nice ceremony in the sunshine and then a delicious meal with our nearest and dearest.
I'm struggling to find any spots commonly used for such an event online, can anyone point me in the right direction? Do I really need a wedding planner that's going to charge me $600 for something I could do myself?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, also any restaurant recommendations in that area too!
Many thanks
Sonia
Hi Brexm2057579,

You might consider hiring a professional event planner who is licensed, bonded and insured with an excellent reputation in your community. Expect to spend some money (probably several hundred dollars) to hire this professional. Given that you will not be home, want everything done right, and are trusting all of your belongings to this person I think this is a necessary expense. Your local chamber of commerce may have a member who does event planning.

Non-profit event space
Hello,
I am interested in hosting an event 12/9/16 from 11am-2pm. We are a community based non-profit organization that unfortunately does not receive funding to "treat" our employees during the holidays. I was hoping the staff would get to enjoy a day out of the office to party and get to know one another! Some of our employees were first responders to recent crisis in our community and I wanted to reach out to our community to see if you could help us in honoring our staff!
Thank you! Please e-mail me at Jennifertyler4@gmail.com.

I am planning a surprise party for my daughter and her husband (who eloped this past August) I need to hire a couple of young, reliable and energetic young people by the hour to help me get things set up while I am out of our house. I would like to hire these individuals for about five hours. Of course it would be essential to have some type of character reference before hiring. I have submitted an event with Eventective and I am waiting to hear back. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to find people like this for hire?


Thank you
Bonnie
Hands down it was my wife wanting us to spend extra money on a REALLY PROFESSIONAL Wedding Photographer. I mean this guy had years and years of experience and a resume with a references list longer than my arm. Since I hadn't seen her wedding gown, I couldn't understand why she was so-ooo keen on getting such a High Dollar photographer. Stop. Let me tell you. I'd known my gal for more than ten years before the wedding, so not much about her I didn't already know. Little did I know.
When the "Wedding March" started, and I turned around to look up at her coming down the aisle, with her in that gown, it simply sucked all the air out of me. I was gobsmacked. I forgot everything -- blanked out, almost. The whirl of everything after that was all just a blur.
I missed my own wedding, and I WAS there. The wedding photos were the only record my mind could refer to. And they were as stunning as her in that wedding dress.

My advice, paying it forward, is this: Go ahead and spend the extra bucks for a really professional, highly experienced, wedding photographer. Oh, and always, always, LISTEN to your wife.


I completely disagree, without the proper music played throughout the day you will not get the party atmosphere, smiling forth guests and if everyone leaves early there is no pictures to be had.
Entertainment trumps the pictures 2-1 at least

25 Year Wedding Anniversary Dinner.
Looking for a two in one venue with caterer for buffet style dinner, good food but reasonably priced. No bar is truly "needed", but a cash bar would be nice for guests. We may also want to do a slideshow sometime after dinner so hopefully that can also be accommodated for us. We will have a guest count of around 150 people and we are looking at the dates of March 18th or March 25th.

All Inclusive Wedding for $6000.00 In Atlanta
I would try Rutledge Manor, only about 40 miles outside of Atlanta. They have a nice venue, full catering and some packages include decorations. The food was pretty good and you can have 150 people for less than 6k for all that. My sister got married there. www.rutledgemanor.com

Good luck....
My daughter is turning 16. I want to have dancing and finger food. Where is a place I can use? I have run across places that rent rooms and then you pay for food and places that you get the room when you pay for food. None had enough room for dancing and tables and chairs. I'm looking for any and all suggestions!

Topic:
Choosing a Wedding Venue
As a wedding venue, sometimes we are not able to accommodate a bride's request, or size of the reception, when this happens we always make sure to point a bride in the right direction to a facility that fits her or his need.

A few tips we have picked up over the years......
1. Make sure the facility works for the size of your party. If the facility recommends no more than 150 people, and you have a party of 200, they may not be right for you. Otherwise, you might end up without a dance floor, or the tables may be cramped.


2. Read the contract BEFORE you sign. We have had many brides come to us after they have signed a contract with another facility, only to find that they were not upfront or honest about what the contract really states.

3. Check to make sure the facility allows certain decorations, do not assume candle flames, sparklers, tape or tacks are ok.

4. Check your payment deadline. Most facilities will have SOME leeway on the amount of time they give you to pay for your rental, but there is a cut-off date, and we have seen brides searching for a last-minute facility due to payment deadlines with another facility.

What are some of your tips for other brides or party goers looking for a venue?

CLOTHING DESIGNER'S SAMPLE SALE
Hi,

I am in desperate need of an event venue for the dates of 11/18-11/22/2016. Day one would be to move-in, we would host the event on dates two and three where we will accommodate 250-500 guests each day and the fourth day is our move out day. Venue should be 5000 sq ft, have WIFI access and exceptional A/C. Also, site should be located in Coral Gables, South Miami or Coconut Grove. Would be wonderful if it had access to easy parking however, we are planning on most likely having to hire valet drivers.

I thank you in advance for your help and look forward to hearing from you in the very near future. We are hoping to secure a space by this Friday.

Once again, thank you.
