The Wedding Website of Margaret Formoso and Austin Choi
We are so grateful for all those who are traveling for our special day. Here are some recommendations for our out-of-town guests including airports, trains, hotel blocks and nanny services.

Flight

Ronald Reagan National Airport

Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) is located in Arlington, VA just across the river from downtown DC. DCA has direct flights from many destinations. It is a short 15-20 minute cab or uber drive into the city, has a dedicated subway station and comes with the likely bonus of a scenic view of some of DC’s most popular monuments as you cross the Potomac River. This is the airport we recommend the most to fly into.

Flight

Baltimore Washington Int. Airport

Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) is about 45 minutes outside of DC. Generally, cheaper flights can be found at this airport. However, it is located outside of DC and thus, we recommend looking into trains to get you into the city. Both regional (Amtrak) trains and suburban commuter (MARC) trains connect BWI to Union Station, downtown DC. Travel time into DC by train takes about 35 minutes and you avoid any heavy traffic.

Flight

Dulles International Airport

Dulles International Airport (IAD) is about 40 minutes outside of DC. Traffic can add significant amount of time to travel. There are shuttles from the airport that can take you to the nearest metro stop (Wiehle-Resont East). From there, take the silver line in the direction of Largo Town Center directly into downtown DC (about 45 minutes). The closest metro stop to the reception is Federal Triangle.

Train

Union Station

Union Station is DC's major train station with gorgeous architecture. Union Station includes multiple rail options: Metro, Amtrak, MARC trains and the Virginia Railway Express. It is very easy to take a taxi or Uber into the city from the Main Hall entrance.

Travel Note

Airbnb

Airbnb is a great option for those who are not interested in staying at a hotel. Airbnb provides options to rent apartments throughout the city and classic townhouses in the Georgetown area to give you a true DC experience. If you have any questions about neighborhoods or areas that you're looking at, please contact us!

Travel Note

White House Nannies

Though we kindly ask parents to not bring children to our wedding ceremony and reception, you may want to bring your little ones for a DC weekend trip. If so, we are recommending a great babysitting service called White House Nannies. All of their sitters are licensed and bonded. You can also ask the sitters to bring activities for your children to do for an additional fee. Visit their website for more information or call 301-654-1242
