Armature Works Bridal Show 2021 | Tampa Wedding Show

Join Tampa Heights’ historic food and event hall, Armature Works, for an exclusive evening of wedding planning in a fresh and new way. Back for its second year, The Reception is not your typical Tampa Bay bridal show. Vendors bring their visions to life with live demos in each of the popular event spaces.

Experience two staged wedding ceremonies, attend a “reception” with live music, light bites, and desserts in the Gathering event space along with a variety of the best local vendors in the Bay.

No matter where you plan to say I do you’ll have the chance to interact with 45 local vendors such as photographers, florists, DJ’s, live musicians, cake artists, stationery and gift providers, preferred caterers, party and furniture rentals, and more.

A ticket to The Reception includes entry for you and one guest, a complimentary glass of champagne, and a keepsake tote bag. You may add additional guests at checkout at a reduced rate.

Modifications have been implemented this year to adhere to COVID-19 safety. The limited capacity event has been split into two time frames to allow for social distancing. Additionally, The Reception will extend
its blueprint into the adjacent, outdoor courtyard to allow attendees more open-air space. All 50/50 bay doors in The Gathering space will be open to allow open air-flow into all spaces.

The Reception is curated by the experts of the Armature Works Events Team. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind experience. Tickets are limited. Pick yours up today while they last!
