This year, Florida Wedding Expo hosted their annual vendor appreciation party at Margaritaville Resort Orlando. The theme for the evening was tropical chic, which matched the upscale, tropical vibe of the resort. To highlight this theme, event sponsors participated in a design challenge, where each showcased their own version of tropical chic wedding inspiration and was captured by Flora Bloom Photography.
The first area in the challenge was a ceremony space, which was sponsored by Orange Blossom Bride. We handmade a classic, geometric ceremony backdrop that filled the width of the space. Atmospheres Floral and Design added amazing floral to enhance the design. Ivory and gold chairs and tall votive candles with a glass cylinder interior gave a unique touch to the space. The final touch of the design was an aisle runner the mimicked the design of the ceremony backdrop.
Fuschia Tropical Chic Reception
Inside the main ballroom is where the remaining challenge rooms were set up. The reception space was split in two, with each planner taking on their own design. Live Love Laugh Events filled her space with tons of greenery, bold pink linens, pops of color, and gold accents throughout the space. Bamboo chairs were used around the tables, which tied in with the linens perfectly. The theme was evident throughout all of her design aspects, including the lounge area, table settings, cake table, and a fun and colorful dessert display.

Navy and Green Tropical Chic Reception
Bella Sposa Events utilized greenery in her design as well, but instead of the pink went for a blue and green color scheme. She took a similar take on the centerpieces, using tall, gold stands with her floral arrangements on top. Instead of bamboo chairs, she utilized clear ghost chairs to allow the colorful linens take center stage. She also used white on her beautiful dessert cart, and her lounge display was accented with wicker furniture to tie everything together.
