  • Mine was made by LoBoheme on Etsy.  Pictures in siggie.
  • Ditto pp.  Etsy.  We loved ours.  We used InkyLivie.
  • I got married at Whitehall Manor in Bluemont.  I think it would be a nice option for a winter wedding because there are so many different rooms that give it character.  It may be out of your price range, but I would imagine the pricing is much diffe…
  • I used Jan Scott and think she did a great job: http://www.janmakeupartist.com/ Our wedding was in Bluemont but we got ready at the Hotel Sierra near Dulles.  There was no extra charge for her to come to the hotel.
  • We stayed at Paradisus Playa Conchal for three nights at the end of our ten day trip.  It was by far our least favorite part of our entire trip.  It's not that luxurious, the food is mediocre, the excursions are shabby, and it wasn't very romantic. …
  • The Dandelion Patch is Vienna is recommended frequently.  If you're looking online, make sure you don't rule out Etsy.  There are some great designers and invitation-makers on there, and the prices are often substantially lower than other online ven…
  • We used Rev. Bill Cochran and thought he did a great job.  Review in bio.  His company is called Say "I Do" Your Way.  He also has a bunch of feedback on WeddingWire.  He'll totally customize the ceremony to suit whatever your religious needs are or…
  • We used Allison Britton and loved her and her work.  All of her prices include a second shooter.  Links in siggie.
  • It is absolutely not cheaper to go AI.  We paid MUCH less for our MUCH nicer real hotels. 
  • Yes, we did.  I posted this response to a post on the third page about AIs in Costa Rica:We went to Paradisus Playa Conchal. It was OK, but not great. I would have been even less pleased had we payed full price. We got about $200 off per night due t…
  • Eek...sorry about that terrible formatting.  Was trying to make the links clicky.
  • The British Pantry is the closest one I can think of.  It is between Chantilly and Middleburg.  They do have a small frozen foods section, but I suppose it's possible they would be able to order sausages in bulk for you.[url]http://www.thebritishpan…
  • Try browsing through posts on AuthenticForum.  I use the boards there to confirm the authenticity of jeans before buying them on ebay.  They normally have guides about how to judge by looking at tags, soles, etc.  If you post the pictures, people wi…
  • We went to Paradisus Playa Conchal.  It was OK, but not great.  I would have been even less pleased had we payed full price.  We got about $200 off per night due to a special they were running.  We did not go with the royal service, which you'll see…
  • This doesn't fall into the inexpensive category, but I've been using the Clarisonic cleaning brush for the last three months and it's made a noticeable different in my skin texture and quality.  You can get them for about $160 with coupons and there…
  • Second Barbara from Growing Wild.  I think we booked her in November 2008 for our July 2009 wedding.  She's great if you like flowers but know nothing about types, textures, colors, etc.  Pictures in siggie.
  • We stayed at Arenal Nayara and thought it was a beautiful hotel.  We stayed three nights and enjoyed the fact that it was very modern, tropical, and relaxing.  The rooms are very private and the hot tub on the balcony overlooking the volcano was awe…

  • A few years ago I took a regular ring (did not buy there) to Princess Jewelers in Vienna (529 Maple Avenue, W.) and they did it within an hour for something like $25.  Looks like they also have a location in Rockville (11520-G Rockville Pike).  If y…
  • I ordered clear solemates from The Solemates website and they came really quickly.  They have all sorts of expedited shipping options including USPS priority and UPS 2nd day air.  If you don't care about paying a few extra dollars, this would get th…
  • I agree - a hair piece or fascinator.  I got mine from LoBoheme on Etsy.  Pics in bio.  There are lots of other pretty ones on Etsy as well.
  • We went the first week in July.  It rained for about an hour a day when we were in the rainforest (Tortuguero).  I remember the same thing happening in Arenal.  We finished up on the west coast at Paradisus Playa Conchal and it didn't rain for three…
  • Loved our wedding phtographer Allison Britton.  You can check out our engagement pictures and many more on her blog.  Links in siggie.
  • Second LoBoheme.  I also worked with her to design a custom vintage feather and pearl hair piece.  The finished product was beautiful and she was very easy to work with, listened to my input.  Photos in siggie links.
  • i don't know about your budget, but i started using the clarisonic a few months ago and noticed a huge difference in the quality of my skin.  i have used prescription acne medications for the last few years (differin, duac) and this seems to have he…
  • I ended up adding english net "straps."  Tons of pictures in siggie links.  I did get extra lace and we played around with using the lace, but thought it would overwhelm all the detailing on the bodice.  I was happy with the end result but I must co…
  • We got married at Whitehall on July 4th of this year - we loved it.  Lots of pics in siggie links.  Vendor reviews in bio.  If you have additional questions, you're both welcome to contact me via e-mail at niamhaine at hotmail dot com.
