You Said YES! Now What’s Step 2 in Wedding Planning?
Congratulations on your engagement!
Now that you are engaged, what next? If you need help with the first few steps of wedding planning, read on. First, plan a budget. This will help with every step afterward. Second—and most importantly, find a venue. Maybe Orlando? This place isn’t called the City Beautiful for nothing. Its abundant wedding venue options make Orlando a popular city in which to exchange vows.
Below we’ve boiled down the top Rosen Orlando wedding venues.
Keep in mind popular dates fill up quickly. More important, make sure the venue is available and offers the space you’ll need for however many guests you expect to have. You also need to ensure the venue will give you the time you’ll need to set up, party, and pack up without stressing too much.
Once you’ve found the perfect place, all the other wedding details naturally fall into place.
Rosen Hotels & Resorts has an abundance of Orlando wedding venues to choose from.
Whether your heart is set on an indoor or outdoor venue, we have it. Can’t decide between a glamorous wedding or an intimate one? We can make either happen with our team of professional planners.
Let’s start with the Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista, which offers perfect accommodations for moderate and intimate weddings.
Bella Vista a Rosen Venue
The moment you enter the Bella Vista ballroom, the special vibe here inspires visions of glamour regardless of its down-to-earth cost.
Bella Vista is part of Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista, a hidden tropical gem less than 2 miles from Walt Disney World®. The heart of this venue is the Bella Vista ballroom—a 2,4000 square-foot room adorned in neutral earthy shades accented by a wall of cool seafoam blue. Silver sconces line the walls adding sparkles of light while uplighting creates the perfect mood. Windows, almost as tall as the ballroom’s towering walls, covered in wide wooden slat blinds allow you to let the natural light cascade in or to create privacy. Wall-to-wall carpeting with a modern Arabesque pattern and details in dark navy blues cushion each step leaving you with more energy for dancing. The ballroom holds around 200 guests.
Take your ceremony or party outdoors to the covered lakeside pavilion.
Florida is the Sunshine State, so who wouldn’t want to incorporate a bit of the outdoors into their special day? Lakeside weddings are dreamy, as is our pavilion. We’ve got the choice of white padded chairs or comfortable outdoor furniture if you need something extra for your guests. Abundant ceiling fans keep your guests cool.
We give you your choice of venue on your perfect and big day.
That choice also extends into what foods we cater for your big day. We’re kind of biased, but we believe the catering skills of our onsite culinary and banquet team have designed what we think to be the perfect menu. Despite what we believe, the menu is highly customizable to match any definition and need of “perfect,” even what picky eaters might define as the “perfect” meal.
The wedding dream team at Bella Vista dedicate their skills and talent to creating the wedding you’ve always dreamed of while working within a budget but never compromising on outstanding service.
Rosen Hotels & Resorts has a lot of wonderful venues, so let’s explore a few more.
The Rosen Plaza offers unique venues. Host your ceremony and reception in the grand ballroom or exchange nuptials under a beautiful wood trellis. A variety of venues exist here to accommodate different party sizes and budgets. Jack’s Place, Rosen Plaza’s flagship steakhouse with a romantic ambiance, and 3NINE, the hotel’s entertainment venue, are great places to host pre-and post-wedding events. Rosen Plaza will customize your wedding menu, which helps you cater to guests with allergies and strict dietary needs.
The Rosen Centre is truly magical. They have the right venue and level of service for grand weddings and intimate ceremonies. Their range of venues includes stunning indoor and outdoor locations. Each venue provides stunning backdrops and landmark elements sure to add to stunning photography. Rosen Centre’s professional planners and chefs are well adept at creating many styles of fairytale weddings. There are also amazing onsite restaurants perfect for a rehearsal dinner (we’re looking at you, Everglades Restaurant and Harry’s Poolside Bar & Grille) or for brunch the day after (ahem, Café Gauguin). The Spa at Rosen Centre has services perfect for the newlyweds and their parties.
Rosen Shingle Creek
The breathtaking AAA Four Diamond hotel is a true vision of elegance. Here you have the choice of indoor or outdoor wedding venues including extravagant ballrooms, a massive brick courtyard, and a covered pavilion surrounded by an Arnold Palmer-designed golf course. Any one of Rosen Shingle Creek’s 15 restaurants is perfect for hosting a rehearsal dinner or a day-after brunch. A Land Remembered serves gourmet steaks and seafood in a rich mahogany-wood dining room overlooking the verdant Shingle Creek Golf Course. Calla Bella is famous for its Tuscan-inspired cuisine and ability to cater to a private rehearsal party before the big day. Host the perfect day-after brunch at Café Osceola with the newly expanded family members or just the newlyweds. These amazing options make Rosen Shingle Creek an all-inclusive venue. There’s even a spa where you can schedule a treatment to ensure you look your best on your big day.
As we are still in the pandemic, all at Rosen Hotels & Resorts continue to take extra steps so everyone is safe. Our banquet staff is also prepared to serve guests to help maintain a clean environment and decrease contact with food and beverages. You’ll also find extra hand sanitizing stations around the hotel.
