New York’s top spa team in Manhattan has some bridesmaid advice for you if you’re looking for a truly special bachelorette party your BFF will remember forever! We know that 2011 is a big year for brides – Kate Middleton, Nicole Richie, and Jessica Simpson to name a few. So if your bestie is also on the star studded list of women planning to say “I do” this year, then most likely, being the devoted friend that you are, you’ve been thinking about how to throw the perfect bachelorette party for a while now. Well, wonder no further because we have just the answer.
It is hard to imagine anything better than spending a relaxing day at a luxury spa, being pampered and beautified, with your closest girl friends by your side. But we know what you’re thinking, generic, right? Wrong! Because here are some awesome ways to spice up a “done” idea, and turn it into a “never-before-seen” event!
1) Before you begin your New York spa day, ask one of the gals coming pick up a whole box full of fun assorted pastries – because little else makes a woman happier than her fave comfort food. If you can, organize to have all party attendees travel together, and break out the goodies on your way to the spa to set the mood. Alternatively, if space and time permits, invite the bride and her friends over for pre-spa day breakfast at yours. Bagels, spreads, and Spanish Omelets included – YUM!
2) When you call to book the spa appointments, ask about whether your spa will allow you to use the waiting room for a while where party guests can sip tea and chat together either before the treatments begin, or after everyone is done. During this time, you can play a game revolving around the bride-to-be, making her feel extra-special! One game idea is to have everyone bring a couple of beads that remind them of the bride – they could be colorful, to signify her bubbly personality, or heart-shaped, because of how much she loves to love others – and one by one, each guest should explain the significance of the beads they chose. Then, string them all up, and present the girl of the hour with a beautiful keychain that will forever remind her of her closest friends.
3) A sweet end note to a day of rest of relaxation, is to all go back to one of the girl’s homes, and put on a video of the bride’s all time favorite chick-flick. Just before she commits herself to her true love, remind her of the Hollywood life she hopes to live – and tell her she can have it all and more if she tries hard enough!
One last, quick technical tip: To make sure that things go as planned, sort out the payments for the day beforehand. One easy way to make sure that the spa treatments get paid for without confusion, is by pre-ordering a spa gift certificate that will cover the entire cost, and having all party members split the gift certificate ahead of time.
That is, all party members except for one!.
Good luck, and enjoy yourselves ladies!
