Question for brides living in MD, DC, VA

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

 

I was just wondering if anyone has attended one of the bridal showcases offered in the area and if so, did you find it useful? Which one did you attend and where? I just wanted to see if there were any other local vendors for wedding dresses (besides Davids Bridal) that have reasonably priced dresses (as in, not more than $1000). Thanks!

That's awesome you won things! That bridal showcase is exactly what I was looking at yesterday. I'll go check one of them out then.

I have been to a couple of bridal showcases and some have fashion shows so that you can see different designs other than David's Bridal.

"A Formal Affair" does the fashion shows at the Bridal Showcase... I drove well over an hour to get to their store out in Warrenton, VA and it was NOT worth it! Biggest disappointment ever. I usually find a dress that I kind of like at any boutique, but I didn't find anything there.

I didn't go to the showcase since I didn't want to confuse myself with more options. But, in Columbia, MD there's Columbia Bridal and Ellicott City has Venus Bridal. I ended up with a David's Bridal Oleg Cassini mermaid style since I'm a visual person and needed to see a dress in my size on me. I was very surprised by what I found.

Did the dress at Filene's fit you okay or do you have to get it altered? I have to get mine altered and was wondering if you knew of any places that does a really good job. I have an appt at David's Bridal this Sunday to go see what they can do but I want to keep my options opened.

Its a bunch of vendors and they each have raffles for stuff. Not really useful for a DW bride, but they have nice giveaways and food samples... love the cake!

My sister has this seamstress in Manassas named Tam(sp?) that she speaks highly of. She is not with any bridal salon or anything. My dress is big in the chest area and snug in the hips. I plan on losing weight so I will need it taken in. I can ask my sister for that lady's info. I also found my camera, so I am about to upload my pics and post something.

    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • Hello Kim;) Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!!! My name is Marisol Vera and I am wedding planner; if you are looking for a destination wedding Cancun and Riviera Maya are great options and pretty safe since all the hotels and resorts are taking great care of their guests and visitors. Please advise which is the destination wedding you are interested in as well as if you have contacted any hotels yet; I will be more than happy to assist you with your big day planning!!! Looking forward to hearing from you very soon;) Have a great day!
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
