Our staff is gearing up for an exciting event this year, the NotWedding! This annual event, taking place on May 14th at Orlando Science Center is an interesting alternative to the usual bridal show. The entire event is designed to mimic the feel of an actual wedding. This fake, elaborate wedding allows “wedding guests”, the brides-to-be, a chance to see some of our local Orlando vendors in action complete with a mock ceremony, reception, and dance party.
The NotWedding has handpicked some of the best vendors in the Central Florida area for this over the top event. This long list of vendors also includes two of our preferred vendors here at the Orlando Science Center!
Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals is a great option for all of your rentals needs including Chiavari chair rentals, an assortment of table rentals, linen rentals, classy tent rentals, LED up-lighting rentals, photo booth rentals, and much more. In addition to their wide variety of rentals, they have an incredible staff that we always enjoy working with.
When it comes to DJ and specialty lighting services, Junction 88 is the one to call! DJ and owner, MJ Farb, and his staff are always full of energy and eager to make your event all the more special. Not to mention, they have the most amazing lighting that will transform any space beyond your imagination!
If you would like to attend this event, you can find out more information and tickets at TheNotWedding.com
If you were wondering how our staff transforms the Orlando Science Center into the wedding of your dreams, here are some of my favorite photos!
Here at OSC we have a wide variety of brides and grooms that choose our venue for their special day. Each of our weddings are different from the next. This couple incorporated many elements that made their day unlike any other here at OSC.
They had their ceremony at the Mayor Tree and the reception was on the SunTrust Terrace. Before their ceremony, they did a “first touch” on the Terrace in which the groom didn’t see the bride, but she was able to see her groom beforehand to calm any nerves.
The couple had Lee Forrest Design hang ribbons on the Mayor Tree, as well as floating orchids on the Terrace above their dance space. With the Terrace already being a romantic space, the hanging floral designs made for a wonderful touch.
Even for December, the weather outside was beautiful as they danced to the band under the stars and the lights with downtown Orlando in the background. The band was a perfect choice for this couple as the group of people got to enjoy piano tunes during dinner and later drum-heavy songs for dancing.
This particular couple had a wonderful atmosphere created for their wedding which you can definitely feel in their photos and in their wedding film below.

One of the biggest trends we are seeing more often in the wedding industry is videography. Do not get us wrong, photographers are just as important because as the old metaphor reads “a picture is worth a thousand words.” However there is just something so magical…so spectacular… about watching your wedding after it has already happened. Being able to go back in time and witness such an extraordinary night through the eyes of others is a wonderful gift and a true delight. Here at the Orlando Science Center, we have had the pleasure of working with many professional videographers and there is nothing more exciting than when we get a new video in the mail! Below are a few films from recent weddings-all unique and beautiful!
