Our Feature Friday blog is where you’ll find out what’s happening in and around Orlando. We’ll focus on wedding-related events (but throw in some odds and ends, too, so we keep you guessing!). Know of an event coming up that we didn’t list here? Please comment and let us know!
Once again, we find ourselves with a weekend offering very few wedding-related events here in Orlando. Why? Because this is Mother’s Day weekend, of course! What better time to thank your mother or another special woman in your life…maybe one who is helping you plan your wedding? Here are just a few ideas of great ways to celebrate with them:
5/12/12 – Beat the Mother’s Day crowd by making reservations for the Rosen Shingle Creek Mother’s Day Tea Event this Saturday. From 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., you can enjoy a performance by the Elizabeth Parsons Community Dance Group while partaking of tea and trimmings. The price is $23 per person. For all the details, including how to make reservations, please visit their website, linked above.
*Just Marry! Tip: Rosen is also offering discounts on room rates and services at their amazing spa—and a Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday. Consider making a weekend of it and really pampering that special lady in your life, even if that special lady is you!
5/13/12 – Orlando is home to a large number of fine-dining restaurants. For Mother’s Day brunch, lunch, or dinner, we suggest visiting OpenTable.com and checking out the great discounts and offers by local vendors. Scroll through reviews, ratings, menus, and more—then make your reservations online! How much easier can it get?
*Just Marry! Tip: Make those reservations as soon as possible, especially for dinner. Mother’s Day is one of the busiest restaurant days of the year!
5/13/12 – If Mom insists that she doesn’t want you spending money on her, there are a number of free Mother’s Day offers you can consider. For example, Mom can eat free at a number of fine dining restaurants owned by Talk of the Town Restaurants with the purchase of a $35 entree. And if you want to avoid the crowds at the restaurants, you can just spend time with Mom at venues such as Medieval Times, the Orange County History Center, or Leu Gardens.
*Just Marry! Tip: The important women in your life don’t need a lot of money spent on them to know how much they’re appreciated. Be creative, have fun, and make sure to express your appreciation the best way for both of you!
These are just a few highlights of Orlando events happening in the coming days. Please tune in next week for a new Feature Friday with other exciting and fun happenings in “The City Beautiful.”
