On January 25, 2015 the Pensacola Bridal Tour embarked on its first annual tour. We are amazed at all the wonderful feedback we have received from vendors, venues and brides. The Pensacola Bridal Tour is a creative way to showcase the many Pensacola wedding venues. A chauffeured trolley excursion that gave brides, grooms, and their special guests an opportunity to learn about and experience the plethora of gorgeous venues the Pensacola area offers.
The tour started downtown at the Pensacola Yacht Club then hit five other wedding venues before concluding its final stop at the Pensacola Garden Center. The Pensacola Yacht Club did a fantastic job setting up. Each table had a wonderful display, like mini vignettes of themes and inspirations. Next on the tour was Sanders Beach Community Center. As brides entered, they were greeted by some of the best wedding vendors in town. For the VIPs we had an introductory wedding education course- so they were better equipped to ask questions for both vendors and venue coordinators. The tour continued to the New World Landing, Barkley House, and then the Crowne Plaza. At the sixth stop brides were able to visit three different shops on Wright Street: Gents Formal Wear, The Powder Room and Elegant Bridals. It was a fun day of drinking, mingling and prizes! Some comments from our satisfied participants:
Hayley Gurney — 5 star. Had so much fun participating as a vendor and loved meeting all the incredible guest[s]! The Powder Room and Gulf Coast Glam House look forward to more tours to come!!!
Jessica Arroyo — 5 star. I definitely learned a lot about Pensacola’s best kept secret venues. Meeting vendors and getting input from people in the wedding industry was great as well, especially for being someone who knows very little about the wedding planning process. The education I received was definitely worth the money!
