A Relaxed Bride is a Happy Bride - How to Unwind With a Spa-Themed Bridal Shower

Jul 7, 2008
Let's face it, every bride-to-be needs some pampering! Planning a wedding can be stressful, with all of the coordinating, last minute changes, and a myriad of people to try to please. Typically most of this stress falls on the bride, who ends up walking down the aisle exhausted and frazzled. When planning this special woman's bridal shower, keep this in mind and consider using a bath or spa theme for the shower to give her a chance to step out of the whirlwind she's caught up in.

This theme can take a few different forms depending on the number of shower guests and the bride's preferences. For a very small group, a day at the spa could make for a very fun outing! Instead of bringing gifts, each guest chips in to help pay for the bride's spa treatments that day. Everyone can enjoy a day at the spa and the bride can relax and enjoy the worry-free attention she's getting. This type of shower works well when the guests consist of immediate family or very close friends. If you want you can make a day of it and plan a night out on the town as well!

While this plan requires a bit of set up to book everyone's appointments, you could forego the day at the spa and still promote the bride's relaxation. You can do this by adding a note on each shower invitation requesting that a small part of the gift include a bath product for the bride. You could even provide examples, such as nail files, bubble bath, massage oil, facial masks, a luxurious hand towel, foot soak, and the list goes on. This way, the bride still gets items that she needs for her home, and she gets a few treats as well, to encourage her to take some time for herself in the days and weeks leading up to the wedding.

If the bride doesn't want a big shower and doesn't enjoy opening an assortment of gifts in front of everyone, you could inform your guests on the invitation that instead of gifts you are welcoming money contributions that will go towards a spa gift certificate for the bride. All they need to do is let you know how much they would like to contribute so you can arrange to get the gift certificate and wrap it up for the shower.

A great way to thank your guests for attending and celebrating with the bride is to give them small bath bridal shower favors. Many options are available for a range of budgets, including foam toe separators, decorative soaps and fun nail files. Candles are also a wonderful option as well. These small gifts can be a fun reminder of the bride and the love she is celebrating.

A bath-themed bridal shower can be a wonderful way to add some relaxation to everyone's day. Every woman likes to be pampered, and getting the bride-to-be to relax for a day can be one of the best gifts she can receive. Make the day fun and worry-free, and remember to enjoy yourself as well!
