Do you picture your guy getting down on one knee in a huge stadium with fireworks simultaneously going off in the background, and perhaps with TV cameras filming and broadcasting the whole thing? (We know there are quite a few of you soon-to-be brides-to-be hanging out with us here at PW!) If so, pay close attention:

6ABC and the Live Well Network are teaming up to make your out-of-this-world wishes come true by extending a casting call for a new series called Pop the Question (WT), which will air on the Live Well Network. (6ABC is filming it, so these proposals will mostly focus on the Tri-State area, especially Philly!)

The Carolyn Verdi boutique is at 1746 East Passyunk Avenue in South Philly.

There are certainly one-stop shops that cover things like, say, your wedding-day ensemble, hitting on the gown, shoes, clutch, jewelry, and headpiece all under one roof. And then there are one-stop shops that cover a wide gamut of needs—and that’s what we’ve got on our hands with Philadelphia wedding planner Carolyn Verdi’s new boutique.

Besides planning, Verdi used to be involved in the Sample Rack, a fab gown shop on Pine that sells deeply discounted dresses from designer showrooms, but she wanted to open her East Passyunk  shop—Carolyn Verdi Boutique—so that she could have a place to expand her business in any way she wanted to—and that’s exactly what she did. (As she says: “We do everything.) Here’s what you can find:

And Unveiled owner Frannie Erace recently decided she wanted to offer that versatility, with this line “for the more shapely bride,” she says, to her brides.

Watch This Super Sweet Flash Mob Proposal at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia

We recently caught wind of this adorable proposal that happened this past weekend in Center City via—yep!—a flash mob, and wanted to share.

Groom-to-be Jake Atkinson wanted to surprise his future wife, Tracy, with a flashy (pun intended) proposal, so he contacted GoSeeDo, a company that produces “creative experiences,” to help him out. They got in touch with well-known Philadelphia dancer/choreographer and Pew fellow Kate Watson-Wallace, and she and the groom—and artistic director Jay Wahl at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, who helped them score the building’s expansive lobby as the scene of the proposal—immediately got to work planning the big event.

On the day of the proposal, Jake told his fiance that the two of them, her daughter, and his two daughters were going to go downtown to a show at the Kimmel Center. Confused and a little irritated by these out-of-nowhere plans, Tracy followed Jake and their daughters from their home in Bensalem to the city. As they walked through the doors of the Kimmel Center, Kate immediately hit play and the first dancer started on cue. Little by little, the rest of the dancers joined in, until Jake and the girls do, too—which is when Tracy finally starts to realize what’s going on.

And of course, she said yes, because how can you say no when a flash mob is involved? Take a look below.

“Advice for the Mr. & Mrs.” Coasters from Hortense B. Hewitt.

When The Papery moved away from their spot on North 3rd Street, they left the Old City neighborhood with a major need for stationary. So Scarlett Alley, the well-loved gift, accessory, home and registry boutique located just down the street from the Papery’s old digs, has come to the rescue and filled that void with a brand new array of stationery products.

Now, when a bride steps into Scarlett Alley, in addition to all the lovely pieces for the home she’ll want to register for, and all of the covetable bridal accessories (Colette Malouf headpieces, Whiting & Davis clutchesHanky Panky lace bridal camis), she will find everything from “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” cards to journals, guest books and honeymoon scrapbooks.

While we could undoubtedly all do well to take the time to unplug—really unplug—for a few days/weeks every once in a while, a just-married couple are among those at the top of the list of people who could do well to ignore all things electronic for a while. Even if you try to plan a relaxed wedding, putting it together always comes with stress—and these days, a lot of calls, texts, emails, Pins, pictures, Facebook posts, iPad browsing, Excel docs, iCal appointments, calculators, wedding websites, online registries and … well, we know you know what we’re talking about. Excessive tech use, to say the least.

Being newly engaged means lots of focus on your new ring. Everyone from your close friends and family to coworkers and elevator-mates will be grabbing your hand to take a look, which means that not only will your ring be in close-up view for the next several weeks, but your nails will be, too.

Getting a mani once a week is an expense that we’re guessing not too many soon-to-be brides planning their dream wedding (or all you soon-to-be engaged ladies out there who feel like that moment might juuuust be right around the bend) want to add to their list (plus, who has time for that?), so when we found this Vogue roundup on fast nail fixes for the newly—or almost!—engaged, we knew we had to share it.
