Pre -Wedding Spa Treatments

Thursday, October 28th, 2010 | Filed under: Bright Ideas, Bright Ideas for your wedding, wedding planning | author: By Keith Sly,    

During the months and weeks prior to the big day, most brides experience a growing level of wedding stress and anxiety. With so many tasks to fulfill, and so much input from relatives and friends, an enormous To-Do list – not to mention everyday stress from work and home responsibilities – it’s not surprising that some brides lose their cool from time to time. Simply put, they need a break. That’s why most brides budget for and schedule regular spa treatments to pamper themselves and relieve their pressures.

Brides-to-be say they count on the ‘breaks’ afforded by monthly spa treatments, from hour-long massages to weekly manicures and pedicures. Treating themselves well and decompressing keeps them in balance, and also allows them to experience the VIP treatment as a salon’s bridal client. Knowing this, and wanting the bride to get the royal treatment, many grooms, maids of honor and parents often give the bride gift cards to her favorite spa or salon, so that she can indulge without financial worry.

Pre -Wedding Spa Treatments

Pre -Wedding Spa Treatments

Here are the top pre–wedding spa treatments that brides enjoy:

• Full-body massage, in light to medium pressure

• Hot stone massage

• Foot massage and reflexology

• Cranial sacral massage, focusing on stress in the neck, face, jawline and shoulders

• Aromatherapy body wraps

• Facials (which can also help to clear and clarify the face for a radiant look on the wedding day)

• Manicures

• Pedicures

• And more…

An enjoyable trend for the bride right now is scheduling weekly manicures and pedicures together with one or more of her bridesmaids, maid of honor, even her mom, to allow for relaxation time and unhurried quality time with her nearest and dearest. That includes the groom, as well. He too may book de-stressing massages in fun pre-wedding spa treatment outings with his bride, and it’s not unusual for grooms to book skin-clearing facials as well. Together, the happy couple indulges themselves, escapes the harried world of wedding preparations, and gains confidence that they will look and feel amazing on their wedding day.
