spa party bridal shower

If the bride-to-be doesn’t like big parties or a lot of fuss, a spa party is the perfect setting for her shower.

These parties are generally more low-key and easier to plan than traditional showers.

Now that’s the type of Spa that we’re talking about! YEAH!

You can keep the spa party relatively simple or plan one that includes more pampering for the bride-to-be and all the guests.

Invitations to the Spa Party

Once you decide on a date and book the spa, you can start working on the rest of the planning.

Focus on invitations first so you can get them sent out in time

Ideally, you should use invitations that reflect the theme of the shower, so find or create ones that feature common spa images.


Spa Transportation

Start the day off in style by renting a limousine to bring the guest of honor and the bridal party to the spa.

You can go with a traditional, classic limo, or splurge on one that offers a few extra perks.

These might include music, neon lights, champagne, or more unusual features like a fish tank. Make sure you schedule the limo to pick everyone up early enough to get to the spa on time.

Plan on having everyone meet in one location for the pickup.



Choose snacks or a light meal that you know the bride-to-be loves to eat.

You can do something simple such as a vegetable tray or have something a bit more filling like a grilled chicken salad or sandwiches made with lean cold cuts.

Avoid foods that are too heavy, like pastas or fried foods. If the guest of honor has a sweet tooth, include a dessert for her to enjoy.

Try to keep this light too by serving an assortment of small cupcakes or cookies or small bowls of ice cream instead of an entire cake.


Spa Themed Favors

Instead of doing traditional favors, prepare spa-themed ones.

You can give the guests homemade spa masks or kits that they can use to make their own. Other favor ideas include manicure and pedicure kits and gel eye masks. If you want something more luxurious, buy slippers or bathrobes for everyone to wear at the spa and bring home.

At the very least, buy the bride a white robe and slippers to make her feel more comfortable throughout the day.



Don’t plan too much as far as activities go.

The bride-to-be’s spa party should be a relaxing experience.

Set up spa treatments that you’re sure she’ll enjoy such as massages, manicures, and facials. If she likes yoga, see if the spa offers classes that everyone can participate in before the spa treatments begin. You can also include a few simple bridal shower games to keep the guests entertained in between treatments.

Have some bath and beauty items available to give away as prizes.

On the day of the party, don’t forget to relax and enjoy the pampering yourself.

The spa employees will help make sure that the bride-to-be and everyone else is attended to, so you can take it easy and savor the day.
