A spa day 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 home or in a spa if you have the budget.
Like other bridal showers, 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. Typically, a bridal shower is held a few months before the wedding or the day before.
While bridal shower games have long been popular, today's bride is often looking for more modern alternatives. Rather than having tea, cake, and games at someone's house, more and more bridal showers are activity-oriented events held outside the home. The most popular of these types is the spa shower. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Invitations Find an invitation with a spa theme, such as the one below. Help your guests know what to expect by clearly stating what will be included, and whether or not they should bring presents for the bride. For example:
"It's a day to get pampered and be spoiled all the way with an afternoon at the spa before Sally's big day! A room has been reserved at the XYZ salon at 3 pm, Sunday, October 8. Please bring $25 for your manicure and pedicure treatment and a spa- or beauty-themed present. We'll indulge in a little pampering before raising a glass to Sally! RSVP to Lisa or Sandy to let us know if you can make it."
