Ask any former bride and they will tell you that planning a wedding is stressful! The dress, the shoes, the music, the venue and don't forget the details and your guests. It is enough to drive any sane person insane. Most people that have been in your shoes will tell you that hiring a wedding planner is the best thing they could've done, because it saved their sanity, as well as a lot of time. We wholeheartedly agree that hiring a wedding planner can be a lifesaver, as well as a timesaver, relationship-saver, fun-saver and everything in between; but this post isn't about that. It is about another piece of friendly advice that can save you a lot of stress when planning your wedding. Let's talk about pre-wedding pampering! Who doesn't love to be pampered, especially before your wedding day? You spend so much time planning for the big day that you deserve a little down time to relax before you walk down the aisle. Everyone knows that a little pampering (manicure, pedicure, facial, massage, etc.) goes a long way...we are sure that is no surprise to you. Here is a a surprise though...don't get your spa services too early! Many brides think that they will save time and possibly money by getting their manicures, pedicures, massages and spray tans before they arrive for their destination wedding. What many brides don't realize is that, by getting your spa services done too early, they can jeopardize the end result, especially when it comes to your nails. To save yourself time, stress and even money, we suggest scheduling your spa services 1-2 days prior to your wedding. This not only gives you time to de-stress and relax before your big day, but also the piece of mind to know that you don't have to worry about chipped or broken nails and streaky tans. We also suggest getting a massage prior to your wedding day to help relieve the tension and stress brought on by planning the wedding of your dreams. Getting a massage after you arrive for your wedding is good way to kick-off the week (or weekend) and helps you to de-stress, unwind and get in the right frame of mind before all of your friends and family arrive.
Most hotels offer spa services at their on-site spas, but at Beauty Boutique and the Glam Squad, we offer mobile, on-site spa services (as well as hair and makeup services for your big day). Many of our brides even make a party of it by setting up a spa pampering party for their bridesmaids and moms at their hotel instead of going out the day or night before the wedding. It is a good way to spend time with your nearest and dearest, while getting pampered and relaxing before your wedding day. Order some food and champagne and have us come over for pampering slumber party. Talk about a fun , low-key way to spend your last night as a single girl.
