Dallas Shaw‘s name might ring a bell to you—well, for a few reasons, really, but namely because we are pretty fans of hers around here: We’ve called out the Wilmington-based fashion illustrator’s bridal sketches a few times in the magazine and on the blog.

We were pretty excited when we peeped on her ‘gram a few months ago that she was working on a collaboration with California-based jewelry designer Jennifer Dawes, who is known for her delicate, artistic, feminine designs based in sustainability and transparency—and we were even more excited when we realized that the result of that collab would be a stack of wedding rings!

Through Saturday, July 9th, all in-store merchandise at Rittenhouse jewelry and gift boutique TownHome is 25 percent off—and besides Need to stop there at lunch, the other thing we immediately thought to ourselves was that there were probably a ton of pieces in there right now that would make really lovely—and now, on sale!—bridesmaids gifts.

To see if our suspicions were correct, we checked in with shop owner Dana Bank—and we are happy to report that, why, yes, there are quite a few goodies lining the shelves right now that we have no doubt your ladies would be happy to unwrap as a token of your thanks.

We’ve been fans of getting our glow on at The Bronzed Bee ever since it opened up about two and a half years ago, and were secretly and selfishly thrilled when they recently scooched the location of the airbrush tanning, lashing and waxing boutique just a bit closer to our PW offices (you can now find them in bigger digs at 2020 Locust Street).

But in case you have not yet checked out their new shop, we’ve got the perfect opportunity, as they’re having a little shindig tomorrow evening.

Check These Important Things to Make Sure Your Overseas Wedding Is Legal In the U.S.

Legal Marriage

A few years ago, my husband officiated the wedding of his best childhood friend and now-wife in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. People kept asking him if he had gotten ordained, if this and that, and we’d just laugh—nah. That ceremony was mostly symbolic; Whitney and Steve were really married when all the appropriate paperwork was filled out, signed and filed back here in PA.

That said, there is often a significant list of regulations you’re going to need to look into if you’re getting hitched in a foreign country, and suffice it to say it’s a list you’re going to want to go over way ahead of time. There are resident laws and special church documents, affidavits and blood tests—all things that would be a pretty big bummer to find out about for the first time only once you touched down in your nuptial destination. (Believe us, we’re heard the horror stories.)

PW Reader Ring: Shauna & Ian!

Shauna's ring!

Shauna’s ring!

The couple: Shauna Byrnes and Ian Hammer, from Norristown.

The ring: My amazing ring is white gold, with a cushion-cut diamond on a twisted diamond band.

As much as I hate saying this, I pretty much picked out my ring. I was browsing Pinterest one day several months back and saw this ring. I completely fell in love with it because it was classic yet different. I asked Ian what he thought about it and he agreed that it was perfect. Little did I know he saved that picture and showed it to the jeweler at Steven Singer when he went to pick out a ring.
