Putting Wedding on a USB - looking for DVD style play-back

I have just moved to CC, but also have CS6, so I do have the use of Encore.

I am filming a wedding soon, and the client is looking for a DVD & USB. The DVD side I can do in encore (OK, looses quality but not a lot of can do based on size). The main output will be to USB, where i am looking to retain as much quality as I can.

Now I could just do the menu items as listed files (01 Bride Prep, 02 Groom Prep etc) and access it through Windows Explorer. However, ideally I would like it to run on a similar line to a DVD - so they put it into the PC and either it starts, or the click on a single file (TV working even better!). There would be a menu etc, and a play-all etc etc etc

But I cant see how to do this. I tried to do a test with Encore building a Blu-Ray folder and then an ISO but with no luck (ISO kind of worked, but didn't look great).

Am i looking for a holy grail that does not exist? Is there a way to do what I want through Adobe CC/Encore CS6?

Also, what would you recommend for a File Format to output the files into?

Any help appreciated - thanks

OK - so eventually went for a webpage - brought a template from VideoHive (Sure others could easily find some) - and 'butchered it' in Dreamweaver (was originally a CV page!). But came out fine in the end, and will be the basis for me going forward.All files  were placed onto the USB Stick - to HTML file, CSS etc, Video Files. There is no access to the internet required

Not wishing to hijack the thread, I would also like to known how to make non dvd or online distribution cost effective. I often film amateur dance and musical performances and I have only ever been asked for dvds, I can make a couple of hundred that are easily affordable, what is now the 'on line' equivalent of this?

Not a hijack in my opinion; selling events is a key requirement. I don't have all my notes on this topic in one place. No perfect solution yet...

Looking on other sites - one of the suggestions would be to create a simple webpage - as shown here

The trouble is I don;t know how to do that - and not sure I have the time to start learning Dreamweaver before it is needed.

Any other options?

So is a single HTML website the way to go? And if so, any idea how to get one created (can't get my head around dremweraver).
