DC, MD, VA Brides (Metro Area)

Hey Ladies. Just catching up on my BDW fix and this thread caught my eye since I'm also in the area. I'm in the Columbia area and was married recently. I know some of you are still looking for dresses and there is a consignment shop in Rockville that a girlfriend vouches for having amazing dresses; I Do I Do Wedding Gowns (622 Hungerford Dr., Rockville; 301-762-4464; by appointment), which has more than 600 dresses, from Vera Wang to Davidâ€s Bridal. Only gowns less than a year old are considered, unless a gown is an unusual size. Gowns are discounted 25 to 50 percent off original retail; if the dress sells, the money is split between the shop and the consigner. Dresses that donâ€t sell within 18 months are returned to the consigner. Just another option. Also, a get together would be great. July 27-August 9 is Howard County Restaurant week http://www.howardcountyrestaurantweek.com/, if you are still looking for places.

Good luck ladies, I hope you all find a dress you absolutely love!! Hopefully your experience will turn out much better than mine at the White Flint location, because most of the dresses I liked were damaged from brides fighting over them.

I live in Arlington now but I grew up in Virginia Beach. My parents still live there so I am a frequent visitor. Yay for Hampton Roads!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
