“Before 5” Networking Recap: Nikki’s Glitz and Glam Boutique

 

Tampa Bay wedding vendors get to experience many parts of the planning process with their couples, from venues tours to menu tastings to choosing decor, but one experience has always been for the bride only, trying on the dress.

Marry Me Tampa Bay teamed up with Palm Harbor wedding dress shop Nikki’s Glitz and Glam Boutique to provide Tampa Bay wedding planners, photographers, and venue coordinators the ultimate bridal experience by having the entire bridal boutique all to themselves!

The Nikki’s Glitz and Glam Boutique experience begins with a bridal consultation with one of their knowledgable staff members to help find the perfect gown for their bride’s vision, body shape, and personal style. With a plethora of designers and styles to choose from, brides may be surprised to find a dress that is completely different from what they had originally pictured on their wedding day.

We partnered with Tampa Bay wedding photography team Lifelong Photography Studio to create a mini glam photoshoot for each attendee to embrace that true bridal feeling. Each vendor took center stage with their gorgeous gowns and custom braids from wedding hair and makeup team Femme Akoi Beauty Studio. As if the afternoon couldn’t get any sweeter, Pop Goes the Party provided a delicious assortment of cake pops, cupcakes, and chocolate-dipped Oreos, while Resurgent Fire Films captured all the smiles and laughs.
