As NYC Spring Bridal Market 2017 is coming to a close, we’re celebrating our local version of the stylish event with a recap of our Marry Me Tampa Bay Bridal Fashion Show.
With’s its rooftop event space and towering floor to ceiling windows, the Glazer’s Children Museum provided the perfect setting for the chic wedding planning event. Brides-to-be enjoyed signature drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a build your own S’mores station courtesy of Saltblock Catering. The Tampa Bay caterer even invited their friends from Foundation Coffee to join in the festivities.
As guests arrived to the downtown Tampa wedding venue, they were greeted by wedding pet planner FairyTail Pet Care and their furry friend. From there, attendees walked our red carpet and step-and-repeat as they went up to the Children’s Museum third floor private event space. With a 6,400 square foot indoor area and 1,000 square foot rooftop terrace with sweeping views of downtown Tampa, Curtis Hixon Park and the Hillsborough River, it offered a chic setting for a night filled with food, fashion and gorgeous wedding inspiration.
Tampa Bay wedding planner Glitz Events managed and planned the event with the design team of Tailored Twig, Nature Coast Entertainment Services, A Chair Affair, Connie Duglin Linens and A&P Design Co. The greenery wall and ghost chairs from A Chair Affair transformed the space into a modern, elegant atmosphere.
To kick off the event, Nature Coast Entertainment showcased their new pyrotechnic sparklers, which are fire-free and safe for indoor use. Then their DJ took over as their edison bulbs, spotlight and uplighting set the mood for the show.
As attendees took their seats, they were treated to custom cookies from the Artistic Whisk, including desserts with printed Marry Me Tampa Bay logos!
Behind the scenes, Glitz Events lined up the models for their big entrances. We began the show with fashion foward bridesmaids dresses from Bella Bridesmaids and groomsmen suits and tuxedos from Sacino’s, followed the two most adorable flowers girls.
