Susan Wright of Palm Harbor shops for a wedding dress for her daughter at the Tampa Bay Bridal Show at the Coliseum in St. Petersburg on Sunday afternoon. The bride to be, Alyssa, 25, and her younger sister, Jordyn, 22, were also present as their mom looked through the display at Jon's Bridal booth. "The mom gets a say if she's paying for the dress," Susan Wright said with a laugh. "A very large say, according to the reality shows." The Tampa Bay Bridal Show included more than 100 of the area's top bridal specialists, and took place from noon to 4 p.m. There will be another Bridal Show in June and one again in October.
