hey ladies, I posted a while back looking for other HR brides. I’m really not actively planning right now, just research stage. I’m on the peninsula.

haven’t even tried any on. i’m dragging my feet on that especially. I’ll probably go by myself the first time. I want to take my mom & grandma, but unfortunately they don’t get along. So I’m dragging because I’m not ready for the drama. I have some dress ideas in mind

HELLO fellow bees!  I’m from Va Beach, but live in Richmond!  I’m getting married in Aruba next May.  It’s funny that your talking about the dress!  Pure English (on Laskin rd) just called me today and told me my dress was in!! YIPPEEE!!  I went to the shop in June and they said it would be in in Oct/Nov!  Pure English was a nice place and great people there too!

I don’t have a particular designer in mind yet. i really love Pronovias dresses, but they’re way out of my budget. I’ll probably be the girl at David’s Bridal fighting over a plain gown in the $99 sale. But if we go with the beach wedding that FI really wants, I’m really into Mori Lee 6172

Like I said, I’m really dragging my feet on this one. If we’re going for the beach, i really want a tea-length dress (my grandmother wore an amazing tea-length gown for her wedding…I’m even contemplating having it recreated for me).

If we decide on another venue, I really have no idea until I try on some different styles and see what looks good on me.

Hey ladies! I’m getting married June 2010 at the Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach. Thanks for starting this thread! I currently live in Atlanta, GA so I’m planning a wedding from afar. It’s difficult because we have so few vacation days to take off and come up to plan, and many of the vendors are busy on the weekends. We were able to meet with Bloom in Norfolk this past Monday. We also got engagement photos taken on Sunday with our wedding photographer James Christianson. 

Have you guys had good luck finding great vendors in the area? If so who are they?

Thanks spwingal! We are very excited about the Lesner.

I have a wedding planner who’s got some suggestions, but I’d love the name of your hair person. Does she do makeup?

Spwingal-I’m having my dress altered by Pure English.  They don’t have an on site seamstress, but the one they recommend comes by to take necessary measurements.
