Tell us a little about the Citrus Club and its weddings. What’s unique about planning a
The Citrus Club is located on the 18th floor of the BB&T Building. We offer a high level of exclusivity to our couples and are the only downtown venue that features skyline views. Although we are a private business club, you don’t have to be a Member in order to host a wedding (or wedding-related event) at the Club. Of course, there are perks for Members who host their wedding or events with us!
What are some perks of planning a wedding in downtown Orlando?
Location! There are several ceremony and reception venues to choose from. In addition, the downtown area appeals to both local and out-of-town guests. There are a number of highly recommended accommodations, restaurants, and fun things to do that are within close proximity. Not to mention, you can easily keep the party going with a number of fun after-party locations.
Where do many guests stay from out of town with a downtown Orlando wedding?
A lot of our guests stay at the Grand Bohemian. It is a luxury boutique hotel that appeals to a number of our wedding couples. The Grand Bohemian is located across the street from our building which is super convenient for guests to walk to.
What trends are you seeing in food and beverage lately?
“His” and “Hers” signature cocktails to continue to trend which allows the couple to incorporate their own personalized touch to cocktail hour. For dinner we are seeing a return to the classic plated dinner with farm-to-table ingredients. Late night snacks are always a pleasant surprise as guests party the night away- It’s a great way to end the night with some sweet and savory bites!
What’s one piece of advice you have for newly engaged couples?
It is important to select professional and experienced wedding vendors. In addition to researching the vendors, definitely check out their social media to get an idea of the quality of work that they offer. It always helps to find out if they have previously worked at your desired wedding venue.
Do you have any ideas of something you would love to see a future wedding do?
We would love to see our clients embrace their personality through their wedding- whether it be a themed wedding, adding unique out-of-the box décor items, or something fun and entertaining that is totally unexpected!
