Where & When Bridal: What to Do This Weekend

Take a mini-break from planning, then choose between two fun Sunday events.

Sunday, April 20: April Showers Bring May Flowers: A Bridal Showcase
A vineyard visit you can write off as wedding planning? Yes, please. Head to Potomac Point Vineyard and Winery (275 Decatur Rd., Stafford; 540-446-2266) to check out food, florists, cake, music, and photography, as well as to scope out the winery as a possible wedding or reception site. To RSVP (required), call Potomac Point or e-mail $15; noon to 4 PM.

R&R Catering Open House Tasting
If you’re still trying to choose a caterer, let R&R try to woo you at either Merriweather Manor (16925 Locust Hill Lane, Leesburg; 571-209-8122) or the Manor House at Linden Springs (1856 Old Reston Ave., Reston; 703-668-3702), where you can sample R&R’s food and meet the staff. Each location will have a different menu, so start at one and let a free limo service take you to the other. RSVP online. Free; 1 to 4 PM.

Wednesday, April 23: “Wedding Table” Workshop

Learn how to make place cards, menus, and more at this three-hour evening workshop at Georgetown’s Paper Source (3019 M St., NW; 202-298-5545). Register here at least 24 hours in advance. $55; 6:30 to 9:30 PM.
