When your guest list includes family and friends who are making the trip from out-of-town, it’s always a really kind gesture to have some sort of welcome bag or basket awaiting their arrival at the hotel. After traveling to the city, and especially after partying into the wee hours of the morning at your reception, they’ll be appreciative of the drinks, snacks, and maybe a few Advil, that you’ve stashed in their rooms.
Attention all brides-to-be still in search of the Dress for their Big Day:
We told you earlier this year that local bridal boutique, Philly Bride (previously Bridals by Danielle, which new owner Lynn Handel purchased in May from retiring longtime owner Danielle Adrian), had plans to move from Midtown Village to a new home at 3rd and Walnut in Old City. And now we’re thrilled to report that the gorgeous location is up and running!
When you’re talking about traditional bridal wear, obviously the white dress comes first and foremost. But a close second place when it comes to the ensemble that will officially make you a bride would definitely be the veil.
As much as we love a really gorgeous mantilla or blusher, though, we’ve seen more and more brides throw tradition to the wind and forgo a classic veil in favor of a statement-making headpiece (if you’re still a veil kinda girl, we have plenty of inspiration right here) such as a headband, comb, clips or pins.
The majority of brides approach the hunt for their wedding dress in one of two ways: they either dive in head first having done a ton of research and with a clear idea of what they want, or or they arrive at the bridal shop completely open-minded and are ready to try on any and all gowns in sight.
Brides-to-be, mark your calendars! Unveiled Philadelphia is hosting a two-day sample sale this weekend that you won’t want to miss if you’re still on the hunt for the one when it comes to your wedding dress. It’s all going down on September 20 and 21, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., at Panorama Restaurant in Old City.
When we read Shoppist editor Emily Goulet’s detailed narrative of her recent trip to the new Le Rêve Rittenhouse Spa, our interests were piqued by the vision of fancy exfoliants, massages, and an “aromatherapy steam shower”—so when we heard that the new spot was especially suited to cater to couples, we were eager to learn more about the latest addition to Philly’s spa scene.
If you’re of the mindset that a coat or two of mascara is all you’ll need to make your eyes pop on your Big Day, we advise you to read on. While mascara can indeed do wonders on its own, you’d be surprised what a little extra TLC can do for your lashes, especially with all of the services that promise to lengthen, thicken, and darken your fringe.
WHEN: Sunday, September 14, 12p.m.
WHERE: 301 W. Dekalb Pike, King of Prussia
We love a good spray tan just as much as the next girl, but more times than not, attempting to fit said tan into our already busy schedules (especially when other event-prep beauty treatments, like waxing and manicures, are involved) can be quite a hassle. It’s times like these when Moira Rubino and her Phoenixville-based mobile spray tanning company, SPF Tanning, are a real lifesaver.
