Couture Bridal Fashion Show With Marry Me Tampa Bay at Le Meridien
Being part of the wedding industry has given us the opportunity to join some amazing events with wonderful partners. Along with Marry Me Tampa Bay and some spectacular vendors, we had the pleasure of participating in the Isabel O’Neil Bridal Fashion Runway Show of 2018. We got to see some truly amazing bridal gown trends for the coming year and bring wedding design ideas to life. You can see all of the photos at Marry Me Tampa Bay, but we have chosen some of our absolute favorite highlights of the night to share with you here!
The bridal fashion show was held at Le Meridien in downtown Tampa, a historic event venue with a glam atmosphere. Wedding planner Love Lee Lane planned a chic night filled with dramatic details, which Lifelong Photography Studios and Kemari Lyn Films captured beautifully. The gold embellished invitations created by URBANcoast echoed this rich and modern vibe perfectly, giving guests a taste of what they would get to see.
As guests arrived, they were treated to a poolside pre-show party with delicious bites and cocktails. A GIF booth from Shutterbooth Tampa was great entertainment and kept guests smiling.
The chic event needed some equally glamorous lounge furniture, and we were happy to share our pieces to amp up the style for this event. Our Juliet Settee provided cozy seating with traditional-meets-modern lines, while the Tolix Chairs brought in some contemporary flair. The classic Seattle End Table paired perfectly with the Black Rio End Tables to create just the juxtaposition we wanted to see. The lounge set up mixed classic and modern pieces to reflect the joining of bridal gown traditions with the trends of current fashion. Each of our exclusive furniture collections is curated to reflect a specific atmosphere, so our pieces work beautifully together in countless ways.
Tampa Bay DJ Spark Weddings pumped the ballroom full of high-energy music to get the bridal fashion show guests excited. With floral design by The Flower Gallery and draping by Gabro Event Services, the runway show was a gorgeous procession of chic looks that every bride will want this year.
The talented team from Michele Renee The Studio provided hair and makeup services for the models, giving them chic styles with dark, bold lip color and dramatic eyes. The choice to go dark was striking and modern; it brought a fresh, couture feeling to the romantic bridal gowns. We predict we will see this look on many brides this year!
Each Isabel O’Neil gown in the bridal fashion show was a breathtaking design. Intricate beading, lots of lace, and unexpected pops of skin dazzled guests.
Veils made for dramatic moments on the runway, proving that even classic additions can feel modern when done the right way.
Guests took home delicious hand-painted cookies from Alessi Bakery as a sweet favor from the bridal fashion show. Thank you to all of the vendors who came together to make this event a success, and thank you to Marry Me Tampa Bay for providing such an elegant event!
