People spend months planning their Noosa wedding including every detail, from where to hold the ceremony, through to what to wear. The laid back holiday atmosphere in Noosa attracts people who want a relaxed wedding, so there aren’t too many bridezillas. Still, the pressure to fulfil social expectations, please a wide variety of people and get everything organised can be nerve-wracking for the bride, groom and their families.
A day spa visit before the event can be the perfect way to spend time with the bridal party, close family or friends before the big day. It’s the best way to relieve the strain and reset the mood so that everyone can enjoy the big event.
Here are three reasons why you should make a day spa visit part of your Noosa wedding celebrations:
1. Prolong the Festivities
A wedding celebration brings families and friends together for what can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yet the wedding day itself can feel too short and busy with so many people to entertain and so much to do, including the ceremony, formal festivities and photographs.
Noosa weddings are no different and, despite the relaxed holiday vibe, often newlyweds and wedding guests feel the big day whizzed by too fast.
Planning a day at the spa before the wedding is a perfect way to start the celebrations and bring everyone together in a relaxed environment. Wedding party spa visits work equally well for girls only get togethers, including those looking for a more sophisticated form of the traditional hen night or baby shower, and for mixed gender parties which are becoming very popular. After all, the boys love to have a massage and relax with a glass of wine or beer before the big day too.
Spa parties are particularly successful for multi-generational parties, because day spa treatments have a universal appeal, for everyone from teenagers through to their great-grandparents. We’ve never come across anyone who didn’t like being pampered while enjoying food and nibbles in our tropical gardens at ikatan!
Why wait until the wedding is over and it’s honeymoon time before you relax? A day spa visit is the quickest way to de-stress and get everyone feeling cheerful.
Many of ikatan Spa’s treatments are specially designed to help people de-stress. For instant stress relief, we recommend a spa package or longer treatments like the 90-minute Chi Massage. But even a Serenity Package massage, deluxe manicure, or pedicure in our garden rooms, is guaranteed to dial down stress and restore a sense of balance.
It’s not just our treatments that relax people either, it’s the chance to enjoy time in the garden before and/or after the treatment, with a complimentary bubbles or cup of tea, that gives people time to really unwind. There’s a wine list, including craft beers, as well as food available. So if you want to spend longer hanging out together after treatments in our garden you can.
There’s no hard sell of products after your treatment either, in fact, at ikatan, we take you away from the retail area in reception and to the gardens instead. However, reception is staffed and we’re there to help you if you need advice or wish to try or buy anything.
Everyone wants to look their best at a wedding because, although the day itself will fly by, the photos will last forever. Facials, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures are essential to help you feel confident and look your best.
All too often, the bride and bridal party can be out of action the day before the wedding meeting the celebrant or florist, checking the reception venue and attending wedding rehearsals. Two days before the wedding, most guests have arrived and this is usually the best time to book some day spa time together.
At ikatan Spa, everyone can come along, with space for the whole bridal party and friends. Which means you can maximise the time you spend together, particularly if wedding guests have travelled interstate or from overseas and need to recuperate from flights or jet lag before the wedding day.
The ikatan Day Spa experience and environment is an unmissable part of any visit to Noosa and should be a prerequisite for wedding parties that want to look and feel their best. It’s the perfect group get-together location.
