Hi

What have you decided in the end? Hope you're sorted now.

We got married on Cocoa Beach - just 6 adults and 2 kids. Very relaxed, no pressure - we got married, had some photo's taken, messed around on the beach for an hour or so (got soaked in the sea in our wedding gear) then myself, husband and 2 kids went for lunch (In what turned out to be a lap dancing bar ! ), and everyone else had the afternoon to do what they wanted. We met back up in the evening for dinner and a few drinks then went back to the villa where we were all staying together

We chose to get married as we did as we didn't want a huge wedding being the centre of attention and wanted it as relaxed and as normal day as possible as it was actually booked after the holiday itself so it was everyone's holiday rather than them being there for our wedding.

I think it depends what you want to do - if you want the bigger day then perhaps start the day earlier and make more lavish plans for the afternoon rather than just mooching around then have a nice meal in the evening? You could find a more lively place if you wanted a more party atmosphere?

We chose Florida because we didn't want a big wedding vibe
We had a villa so with seven family members (three generations) plus three American friends for the day we had a catered buffet meal and entertainment back at the villa. We hired entertainment for the villa and had our own music. We of course all ended up in and around our own pool.

its probably harder to replicate that big wedding vibe in Florida but easier to put your own stamp on things.

We're getting married at leu gardens at 11.30, we have the gazebo area for an hour but are free to begin the gardens after.
Then we were heading back to cabana bay to get changed, meal at Martinsville then hit universal/ioa.

Now it just doesn't feel "enough" if that makes sense?
How about a balloon ride ?
I felt I wanted a unique activity somewhere in the day , when our numbers grew the balloon was no longer practical and we ended up with a caricaturist instead who was great ...even added in the family member who couldn't make it from a photograph. He was a great success.
