Question for brides living in MD, DC, VA

Recommended Posts

I heard about that one. Even have it marked onmy calender but unfortunately I have to work so I can't make it. I did sign up for free tickets to one in DC the following Sunday. So hopefully I will at least get some dress ideas...

For dresses, try Hannelore's in Old Town Alexandria. I was there a few weeks ago and they have a bunch of dresses for 50% off. It's been a while since the sample sale but still many options!

Thanks, I will definitely check that out. I heard about a shop in Arlington and one in Manassas that are supposed to be pretty popular too (dont remember the names). So I will be making the rounds.

There are a number of local shows going on during the fall -- and the biggest benefit to these shows is that all vendors are usually required to provide a prize of some sort -- so there are lots of winners!

 

Many Sheraton hotels in the area have bridal shows - the best way to find the local shows is on sites the knot.com or by picking up bridal magazines.

 

The largest show in the Baltimore area is the Maryland Wedding Professionals show at the state fairgrounds in timonium - but that's not until Jan.

 

 

these shows are a good place to see a ton of vendors in one spot. - However, most local shows only have one or 2 bridal gown places that show up. -- the bigger shows usually have the variety -- the state fair grounds show last year about about 7-10 bridal botique vendors there -- so there was a good variety.

 

-- I know other shows overwhelm their shows with one type of vendor. -- there is a show in Baltimore we specifically dont do because it's really just a "photography" show - where 75% of the wedding vendors there are photographers. -- that is useless to many brides who already have a photogapher!

 

 

 

........ When researching the shows - see the vendor list and make sure there are not a ton of one type of vendor. -

 

 

sorry........ that was a big ramble about bridal shows........ obviously, I've been to alot and have alot of opinions.

 

lol....... if you have any questions let me know!

Are their prices reasonable? Do any other DC metro area brides have suggestions of any other places to get dresses altered? Thanks!!!
