The Savvy Bride’s Guide to the Spa

Weddings take some serious planning (hey, we don’t need to tell you that!), and looking your best is likely at the top of your to-do list. Brides have so much to plan – so we hope BodyScape’s Spa Guide for Brides takes some of the stress out of organizing your special day. We recommend that you invest in a series of spa visits, starting 4-6 months before your wedding. BodyScape has packages specifically for brides so prepare to get gorgeous!

If you’re planning a wedding, you’ve probably discovered there is more advice than you could possibly read. We’re here to help you make sense of spa and beauty dos and don’ts so you and your wedding party will be your most beautiful.


1 . Plan Ahead
Make a list of your wellness & beauty priorities: if you have trouble skin, focus your time & resources on a series of facials. If you’re super stressed, regular massages will ease tension and give you soft skin.

2 . Get a Body Wrap
There are body wraps designed for many purposes: detoxify your skin, lose a few inches, soothe aches & pains, get super-soft skin and more. BodyScape recommends booking a series of 4-6 body wraps for best results.

3 . Take Your Fiancé
Book a couples massage with your other half, or for a unique experience we highly recommend booking a Hammam experience together. Skin is exfoliated & cleansed with black soap and Rhassoul clay is applied to purify the skin. Your skin will be positively glowing – and so will your future hubby!

4 . Start Body Brushing
Body brushing is a guaranteed route to glowing skin. You can do this at home every day with a body brush and compliment your regime with a lymphatic drainage massage at the spa. Body brushing improves circulation, softens skin, reduces cellulite and helps the body eliminate toxins.


1 . Get a Facial a Few Days Before Your Wedding
Facials draw out impurities from the skin, which can cause breakouts and redness. For this reason, it is recommended that you have a facial no less than one week prior to your wedding. For radiant skin, BodyScape recommends a series of facials before your wedding (try once a month for 6 months).

2 . Wax on the Day of the Wedding
Similar to facials, waxing should be performed at least a week before your wedding. You want your wedding day skin to be glowing and smooth, not irritated and red!


3 . Stress About Money
We understand that it’s not possible for everyone to visit the spa each month in the run-up to your wedding. No matter what your budget, we want you to be able to enjoy the spa – you can even do this at home with our DIY spa tips. Give yourself a facial, enjoy a detoxifying bath and even make your own lip balm wedding favors!
