Wedding Week 2016 Recap: Educational Planning Workshop Presented by the Tampa Airport Marriott

Tampa Bay Wedding Planning Workshop

For most Tampa Bay couples planning their wedding is a completely new experience. It’s unchartered waters filled with lots of questions, opinions from everyone and big decisions to make. To facilitate the planning process, we teamed up with the Tampa Airport Marriott and local wedding experts to educate couples during Tampa Bay Wedding Week 2016.

The afternoon began with a meet and mingle with wedding pros: The Day Of Events, Andi Diamond PhotographyRad Red CreativeThe Artistic WhiskWonderland Floral Art and Gift LoftNature Coast Entertainment ServicesCustom LinensA Chair AffairCross Creek Ranch and Michele Renee The Studio.

Afterwards, couples discovered how to set a budget with wedding planner The Day Of Events. From there attendees, selected multiple class options: How to Choose Your Wedding Vendors, Wedding Design and How to Choose Your Wedding Venue.

Couples had one-on-one time with wedding pros after each session to ask detailed questions and discuss their own needs, while enjoying light bites from the Tampa Airport Marriott’s culinary team and desserts from the The Artistic Whisk.
