Wedding Suite seeks to be one-stop shopping

PALMA CEIA — Wedding planner Christi Winsor understands the stress amid the joy of getting married, having laughed and cried with dozens of brides in preparation for their walk down the aisle.

Collaborating with colleagues to open the Wedding Suite on S MacDill Avenue "will make the planning process so much easier for a busy bride," Winsor said.

"It's a resource center for one-stop shopping," said the lead wedding planner of Winsor Event Studio. Top area wedding professionals joining her are Couture Closet gowns and accessories, Hummingbird stationery, IQ of Beauty hair and makeup, Andrea Layne floral design, Universal Music Entertainment, Fotobox photo booths, and Life Long Studios photography.

"Instead of running all over town, brides can meet with various vendors at one place, somewhat like a bridal show, only more personal," she said. Appointments are scheduled at the convenience of the customer.

The grand opening was April 26. Monthly open houses are planned.

The Wedding Suite, 2120 S MacDill Ave. Hours by appointment only; (813) 374-0773.
