A spa bridal shower is the perfect way to spend time together with close friends and to give the bridal entourage some indulgent pampering before the wedding day. It’s also a time to soothe tired minds and bodies. A spa bridal shower can be held at our spa or we could come to you. This should be hosted by the maid of honor with the help of the bridal entourage or a close female relative of the bride’s.
Pre-planning: A month or two before the party – planning for a spa bridal shower with lots of spare time is the best way to ensure that you’ll have a successful event everyone will remember. Please make an appointment to meet with us and discuss your plans. Email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a form so that you may begin to plan.
1. Decide on the date. The ideal day would be over the weekend as this when most people will be available. Consult the bride and make sure she’s available on the day.
2. Decide on the venue. If you choose to hold the shower at Aretee Day Spa our Spa Sampler is a great bridal package. You could make your own package and just do nails or massages. If you decide to have it at home, we can come to you.
3. Plan your budget. Set a budget for the whole event and ask the other members of the bridal entourage to chip in. By doing this, you avoid over-spending and depleting your wedding budget.
4. Send your invitations. The moment you have the basic details like date, venue, and guest list, send out your invitations.
Planning the Details: 4 to 6 weeks before the party – A significant event like this happens just once in a bride’s life, so guarantee her special day by taking care of the important.
Food – since having a spa is all about being healthy, the food should be healthy and simple as well. Try to serve salads, deli sandwiches, fruit salads, cheese and crackers, and veggies with dip. For your drinks, serve fruit juices or fruit punch with floating slices of fruits. We provide the lemon water, tea and cookies. We also have a caterer if you do not want to cook.
Guests – traditionally, the guests for the bridal shower include the bridal party, close female relatives of the bride and groom, as well as close female friends of the bride. However, be sure that all guests will be invited to the wedding.
Spa set-up – if you’re having the bridal shower with a small group, a trip to a spa that can accommodate your party is the best idea. Pre-arrange the packages that will be available to guests to avoid any unforeseen expenses. If you have a large group, we could also accommodate you or you can set-up a spa station at your venue. Have a massage station, a facial center, and mani-pedi place. We can provide the professionals for this type of set-up. If you choose to have it in your home, we will help you but be sure to play some relaxing music and decorate your venue in soft colors.
Favors – consider favors that fit your theme of a spa. Give aromatherapy oils, scented candles or bath salts and package them nicely within a lovely favor box tied with some pretty ribbon. If you need, we can help with these items.
Traditionally the maid of honor is responsible for hosting the bridal shower. However, it can be anyone, even the bride’s co-workers.
