Here's a new spot for pre-wedding primping. Hela Spa in Chevy Chase (Hela is Swedish for "to make whole"), has a wide array of services from manicures and pedicures to waxing and laser hair removal, facials (with fun Swedish-themed names like "The ABBA"), hot stone massages, and much more. There are also packages for brides-to-be, which include brow styling, hot stone massage, vitamin C treatment, and a collagen mask, and even for grooms (a facial and a sports massage). Hela would also make a fun spot for a spa bridal shower—they'll set up hors d'oeuvres while you and the girls get pampered. Visit Hela Spa's website for more information.—Kim Forrest, Editor, Brides Washington/Brides Maryland
