We hired All Stretched Out Limousine Service for our wedding day transportation. The drivers were all great. We told the company certain items we wanted in each of the limos, and they made sure they were stocked. A good time was had by all on the drive to the reception! Superb service.

For my engagement ring, we were using my grandmother's diamond, and my fiance has purchased 2 other diamonds. (One to go on each side of the main stone). I was not sure what type of setting I wanted, but after meeting with the jeweler, we found several that I absolutely loved. The jeweler also was able to add a special link to my ring so that I could adjust it if needed. I had seen crappy clasps before, but this one looked great and I was sure this ring was not moving off my finger unless I wanted it to.

Although a little pricey, we were genuinely pleased with the arrangements that were made by Valentino Floral Design. I wanted specific colors and flowers, and they were able to get everything I wanted. The centerpieces they made for the tables came out beautiful. I was even told that if I bring my bouquet back, which they had made for me, they could dry the flowers and put them in a keep sake type of pouch that I could keep forever. That's a great idea I would never had thought of!

The Men's attire was rented from Wedding Creations & Anthony's Tuxedos. Not the best experience, according to my husband and groomsmen. The guys got fitted and the tuxedos were ordered. A week before the wedding, several groomsmen went to pick up there tuxedos, and the wrong size had been ordered. The shop even ordered the wrong color bow tie and cumberbun. What a diaster. I would never use this place again.

Buying my bridal gown, I knew, was going to be a procedure. So when I walked in, I informed the staff that I really needed someone patient to work with me. I am not a dress person and I wasn't sure what I had in mind but when I saw it I would just know. 500 dresses later I found one that was stunning and I had to have it. It was a lot more then I wanted to pay, but I figured I am only getting married once, so I might as well go all out. Fitting after fitting I went back and I wasn't stressed at all. I had been losing weight due to a medication I was taking and was very concerned that the dress would be to big on my wedding day. They assured me it would all work out and it did. I was so pleased with how well I was treated, that I decided to order my bridesmaid's dresses from there as well.
We found Roundhouse Candies online, and decided to give them a try. We wanted our picture on a piece of chocolate that we could have placed on each of the tables. The chocolate stars turned out incredible. it didn't look like chocolate at all. Some people even told us it was so pretty they didn't want to eat it.

Leslie's cakes and her designs were simply amazing. I never thought so much thought could go into creating a cake. We wanted several different layers with several different flavors. That was no problem for Leslie. We sampled so many cakes by the end I was 100% overwhelmed by all the choices- but had a great time doing it. Thanks so much Leslie for making my day really special.
I wanted this to be as stress free as possible so I found a place that not only could do my hair but my makeup as well. Everything they did was very subtle. The suggestions I was given were very helpful and I was shown many options regarding how to wear my hair. They must have done my makeup 101 times till I was satisfied. At one point, I thought that they may have thought I was crazy, but they told me all Brides-to-be wanted to make sure everything was just perfect on their wedding day. Their comforting words alleviated some stress for me!

While the guys went to some strip club in D.C., the girls went out to dinner and then to the Hanger Club in Laurel for some adult entertainment. A good time was had by all! We had a blast at this venue!

Nice casual restaurant. I thought some friend's and I were simply going to lunch. I didn't realize we were going to my shower. Needless to say it was a huge surprise. The food was ok. We were given a menu with various choices we were able to choose from. It was nice. I didn't find the wait staff to be too attentive. Some one always needed a refill of something and there was never anyone around to take care of that, but otherwise it was good.
