  • Wedding: May 2013

Hi I’m getting married in Alexandria and these are the vendors we’re using:

Cake: Cakes by Design in Occoquan (they have a storefront cupcake shop- Sugar Buzz). They are delicious and Debbie has been great to work with so far!

Florist: Maryam Flowers in Fairfax, VA- Maryam was one of the most responsive and budget friendly florists I met with.

DJ: Bryan George Music, MD- we’re using Ramses and met with both him and Bryan and they seem great. We’re definitely excited to work with them.

Transportation: haven’t booked yet

I hope this helps!

We used Reston Limo for transport and would absolutely recommend them. Competitive prices (not cheap though but you’re not going to find cheap limos from any of the established companies in the area), great service, really helpful staff. I’d hire them again without hesitation.

hopefully you luck out and they don’t consider the beginning of May prom season. every place i’ve talked to so far has had an 8 hr minimum for transportation. ugh.

Spotsylvania here… but got married in Stafford/Fredericksburg so my vendors could definitely be used up there (actually most of them have done weddings all the way up to MD)

Cake: Lizzy Cakes of Fredericksburg. She did an OUTSTANDING job. I may be biased b/c she is the mother of my MOH but honestly she did a great job. She is VERY talented and does an AMAZING job creating her ‘sugar’ flowers. AND the cake tasted fabulous. She’s new to the business so she probably would be cheaper. She also doesn’t have a lot of cakes to show on her page (some of them are from when she first started out YEARS ago) but idk I highly suggest her.. She also did the cake for my Mom’s nursing graduation.

Here’s my cake:

Transportation: ABC Limo (they service the whole NOVA area). We did this last minute and basically chose whoever was available. Decent rates and a good driver. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a limo company.

Florist: I’m not going to suggest my florist for two reasons, they’re located in F’burg and the fact that I wasn’t very satisfied with the end result.

DJ: DJ’s in the Burg. He’s out of Stafford if I remember correctly. I loved him. He’s cheaper than most because he doesn’t do DJ’ing as his only job but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t AWESOME. Extremely professional, great personality, and nailed the song selection!  http://djburg.com/

@LavenderBride24:  What about getting a school bus?  I dont know what they have in this area but I always used them when I was in Philly planning college formals.  Definitely cheaper than fancy buses.
