Set the Scene
Soft soothing music, the sound of gently falling water, aromas that sooth the body and soul....yes, your guests will feel like they just stepped into a spa.
  • Arrange sachets in flat dishes for your tables.  They are quite 'girly' and make a perfect party favor.
  • In keeping with the relaxing, soothing spa ambiance; scented candles are decorative items that can be given away at the end of the party, and they will keep the mood tranquil.
  • For the buffet table- clear glass bowls.  Use flowers, in the brides colors.  Look for blooms that have a soothing, fragrant aroma such as gardenias, lilacs, lavendar, or roses.  
  • Floating White Orchid Candles

Activities

Hire someone to provide manicures, pedicures and facials for the bride and guests.  Many spas in your local area should provide these services.  Call ahead to make arranghements. With a glass of wine, champagne or sherbet punch in hand who wouldn't enjoy having their toes painted Pink Before You Leap?  There are also a number of great bridal shower games that will make this day all the more memorable:

    • Dress the Bride - After all the pampering, have the guests make wedding dresses out of toilet paper.  It's truly amazing what beautiful creations your guests will come up with!
    • Wedding Night Practice- Practice makes perfect, right?  Can't have a bridal shower without exposing the bride (just a bit) to what's ahead on her wedding night.  With this activity she'll be ready for just about anything.
    • Bridal Shower Memory Book - While your guests are enjoying their pedicures ask them to make entries in the Bride's Memory Book.  Something she will treasure forever.
