The Salon at Duross + Langel Is Ready for Your Wedding

The Salon at Duross + Langel

The Salon at Duross + Langel

Back in the spring, our buds over at Duross + Langel, the Midtown Village purveyors of the most glorious and locally made lotions, potions and soaps (if you’re not slathering yourself in D+L Buttercream on the daily, you’re doing it wrong) expanded in two super cool ways: They opened a yoga studio and a salon, all above and attached to the 13th Street boutique.

Co-owner Steve Duross wanted to get the salon settled and underway before diving into the waters of bridal beauty—and now, with both expert bridal hairstylists and makeup artists on staff—not to mention a salon space that’s made for gathering and lounging—they’re ready to make a splash.

This Local Web Developer Proposed to Her Boyfriend with the Sweetest Speech Ever (Video)

We may not know a ton about the tech scene here in Philly, but we do know a good proposal when we see one—and this, dear friends, is a goodie. Very rarely do we see a lady propose to her boyfriend, but that’s exactly what local web developer Savanna Carr did when she popped the question to video game developer Will Stallwood last week. (They were at Fishtown’s El Bar celebrating Philadelphia Weekly‘s Hipster Hunks and Hipster Honeys feature, which they were both included in.) And it’s awesome.

To say her pre-proposal speech was emotional and heartfelt and adorable is an understatement—it may bring you to tears, that’s how sweet it is. Behold:

PHOTOS: 25 Festive Ideas for a Valentine’s Day-Inspired Color Palette

Swoon.

Swoon.

There are two (polar opposite) schools of thought when it comes to getting engaged or tying the knot on Valentine’s Day: Some people think it’s super sweet and romantic—it’s the day of love, after all—while others turn up their noses and declare it the ultimate cliché.

Regardless of where you stand on the topic, there’s no denying that the colors of Valentine’s Day (all the lovely shades of red and pink) work really well for a wedding, no matter the time of year.

Please Enjoy This Video of a Maid of Honor Rapping Her Speech to the Tune of “Ice Ice Baby”

There’s nothing like a wedding-toast-turned-epic-performance to get you through a cloudy Thursday morning—and thanks to Rachel Winterbottom (amazing last name, right?), that’s exactly what we have for you today. Instead of giving a traditional Maid of Honor speech at her sister’s wedding, she put together a pretty epic rap to the tune of Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby.”

You’ll want to pop some headphones in so you can turn this up nice and loud:

Well, we’ve heard before that Philly frequently ranks as one of the more expensive cities in the country for tying the knot, and a new study suggests that while our lovely city certainly has pros when it comes to throwing a wedding celebration here, the financial cons haven’t changed.

WalletHub just put out a new report that breaks down, for 150 different cities, the main factors that come into play when a couple is planning a wedding. They use a lot of very technical words like “key dimensions” and “metrics,” but how it basically shakes out is like this: They analyzed 18 different points (number of hotels per 100,000 residents, number of party equipment rentals per 100,000 residents, etc.) across three main categories—wedding cost, wedding facilities and services, and activities and attractions—and then crunchcrunchcrunch.
