Your wedding day will be here faster than you can say “I do,” and while you’ve probably already chosen the perfect venue, a photographer to capture your most precious moments, and a wedding dress that’s sure to make your groom’s heart skip a beat, you may have overlooked one important tradition… a bridal shower!
After all, now that he’s put a ring on it, its time to celebrate with your best friends! Since there’s no better way to shower the bride than to relieve the stress of planning a wedding, a relaxing spa day is the ideal venue for some pre wedded bliss.
Looking to find the perfect spa? Piece of cake, right? Well, it depends on how you slice it. Since the bride should be the true centerpiece of the day, choosing a venue that makes your experience all about her is a must. Enter Bliss Spa. The exclusive spa, located in the W Hotel in Boston, is a luxe oasis of calm, where you and your friends will be greeted with champagne, and desserts to be enjoyed in a tranquil chic lounge.
From here, each guest is taken to be ped-ied, man-ied, massaged, and pampered to perfection by the talented Bliss Spa staff. Post-treatment, the group is led back to the private lounge to enjoy hors d’oeuvres, desserts, dancing, and a chance to toast the bride-to-be!
After experiencing the bridal spa package myself, I’ve decided that Bliss Spa at the W hotel is truly the hostess with the mostest. With Mani-pedi stations equipped with personal headsets, flatscreen TVs, high-tech women’s locker rooms with some serious perks, and brownies that are as sweet as can be, Bliss truly offers superior ‘spa-ing’.
Whether you opt to have you and your friends enjoy relaxing massages, facials, or any other services, a Bliss Spa Bridal shower will provide a tranquil and fun experience that will leave you feeling fulfilled and renewed. Bottom line? Bliss Spa’s bridal and ladies night out packages are a proposal you cant refuse. ‘Vow’ to pamper yourself before the big day with decadent packages designed to make the bride and her entire bridal party look and feel their best.
So what are you waiting for? A blissful escape awaits you…

With Boston Fashion Week turning 20 years old this year, I was thrilled to be invited to attend the highly anticipated sixth annual Launch event. For those that don’t know, “The Launch,” was created six years ago by the ever talented writer, professor and founder of Boston Fashion Week, Jay Calderin, to allow for emerging designers to display their work on a larger scale.
This year, models strutted down the catwalk at the W hotel donning diverse looks from aspiring designers Ty Sinnett, Maryanne Meservey, Chynna Pope, Dominique Quinque, and Jeffrey Dickerson who showed capsule collections of their latest creations.
From Chynna Popes ultra feminine monochrome silk and leather eveningwear that could best be described as uptown chic meets downtown cool, to Jeffrey Dickersons highly constructed and exaggerated aesthetics, Maryanne Meservey’s up-cycled rocker frocksits safe to say that this seasons crop of young designers have more than earned their launch into the spotlight.
