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!

"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.

    • I want to testify to the glory of Lord Masuka, the spell caster that helped me restored my marriage. It all started when my husband came back home acting weird for no reason, I tried to find out what was going on but he refused talking to me for days, he woke up one morning and say to me that he needs a break and he left without any clue where he's going, I was so shocked and devastated because I have done nothing wrong to him other than being a supporting wife, I cried all day, one fateful evening I saw series of comments on how Lord Masuka had restored collapsed marriages, so I decided to give him a try. He assured me that all hope are not lost yet, I followed the instructions he gave me and to my greatest surprise my husband who had left me for  months without a call came to my work place and begged for forgiveness, now we are happy family because of Lord Masuka.

    • You are definitely not alone in this I am sure!  As much as you want all of your friends and family there, DWs can be tough for a lot of people to make.  Some for financial reasons and others because they have a weird chip on their shoulder about you having one.  It sucks initially but you aren't getting married for them!  And for all of the people who make it, you will create an even stronger bond.  I hope it gets better and please keep us posted!
