Weddings take some serious planning and looking your best is likely at the top of your to-do list. Brides have so much to plan – so we hope Spafinder Wellness 365′s Spa Guide for Brides takes some of the stress out of organising your special day. We recommend that you invest in a series of spa visits, starting four-six months before your wedding. Many spas have packages specifically for brides, so do your research, find your perfect spa and prepare to get gorgeous!
1 Plan ahead.
Make a list of your wellness and beauty priorities: if you have trouble skin, focus your time and resources on a series of facials. If you’re super stressed, regular massages will ease tension and give you soft skin. If your hair needs attention, choose a spa that can help you get luscious locks.
2 Get a body wrap.
There are body wraps designed for many purposes: detoxify your skin, lose a few inches, soothe aches and pains, get super-soft skin and more. Spafinder recommends booking a series of 4-6 body wraps for best results.
3 Take your fiancé.
Book a couples massage with your other half, or for a unique experience we highly recommend booking a Hammam experience together. Skin is exfoliated & cleansed with black soap and Rhassoul clay is applied to purify the skin. End the day with a relaxing visit to the sauna with your loved one.
4 Start body brushing.
Body brushing is a guaranteed route to glowing skin. You can do this at home every day with a body brush and compliment your regime with a lymphatic drainage massage at the spa. Body brushing improves circulation, softens skin, reduces cellulite and helps the body eliminate toxins.
5 Remember to enjoy it!
Savour your pampering time at the spa – use it to de-stress, unwind and calm your mind. You likely have a million things flying around in your head, from worrying about which poor soul to seat next to Uncle Jim to whether your bridesmaid’s gowns are the right shade. Use your time in the spa to quiet your mind and let your body relax, recharge and restore.
1 Get a facial a few days before your wedding.
Facials draw out impurities from the skin, which can cause breakouts and redness. For this reason, it is recommended that you have a facial no less than one week prior to your wedding For radiant skin, Spafinder Wellness 365 recommends a series of facials before your wedding (try once a month for 6 months).
2 Wax on the day of the wedding.
Similar to facials, waxing should be performed at least a week before your wedding. You want your wedding day skin to be glowing and smooth, not irritated and red!
3 Do a DIY fake tan!
We’re sure you’ve had horror stories about brides doing their own fake tan before their wedding. Don’t go there – it’s not worth it! If you want a fake tan, pay a professional, preferably one you’ve used before or someone recommended by a friend.
4 Stress about money.
We understand that it’s not possible for everyone to visit the spa each month in the run-up to your wedding. No matter what your budget, we want you to be able to enjoy the spa – you can even do this at home with our DIY spa tips. Give yourself a facial, enjoy a detoxifying bath and even make your own lip balm wedding favours!
5 Hesitate to ask for a discount.
If you’re booking a series of spa treatments, you will likely be entitled to a discount. Sometimes, though, if you don’t ask you won’t receive – so be sure to ask!
Did you know…
42% of UK weddings take place in July, August & September.1
If bronzed skin is on your wish list, book a series of sunless tanning appointments.
Hens love the spa.
A whopping 42% of wedding guests think that a spa weekend is the best kind of hen party. 2
Feeling stressed? Have a masage.Brides can suffer from a fair bit of stress, so book a massage if things get too much. Massage relieves anxiety, depression and significantly lowers the stress hormone cortisol. 3

Great Destination Weddings has announced a brand new APP – with the entire 2014/15 annual edition available to read as a FREE download (a saving of $9.90 for readers)!
With destination weddings booming around the globe – and Australian couples falling in love with the trend – a branded App is the perfect way to share the stunning content of Great Destination Weddings. After all, in America alone, statistics reveal 16 percent of marriages are destination weddings, with the market accounting for billions in annual spending. And, while it isn’t easy to get an exact yearly figure for Australians indulging in a destination wedding, few would dispute that there seems no end in sight with this exciting wedding trend.
Great Destination Weddings (sister title to the hugely popular Holidays for Couples magazine) is already a force to be reckoned with in the holiday-wedding and romance travel market and has inspired countless couples through its beautiful pages and website. Its new App will take this effect even further, with readership set to soar.
To mark the milestone, Great Destination Weddings has made the entire first edition available under its own branded App as a FREE* download, to a potential worldwide audience of more than 2 billion smart phone and tablet users via Apple iOS, Google Play and Microsoft.
Readers can enjoy nearly 200 pages of gorgeous wedding destinations – from Thailand to Bali and Europe to The Pacific Islands and Australia, couples will be swooning over the destinations featured. Real brides open up to discuss their destination wedding and offer tips, advice and inspiration, and here is even a range of gorgeous destination videos, to help couples get themselves in the picture.
The opportunities for advertisers looking for new markets are endless, especially when you consider that a Sydney couple could be just as interested in a wedding in Thailand as one researching their holiday wedding from London. Managing Editor Tanya Joslin says the App has already generated plenty of interest, with advertisers in the current issue (released June 2014) excited about the launch.
The App has also opened up other opportunities for tech-savvy marketers. For example, marketers who want to go beyond the magazine page can now take their destination to the world with their own 20-24 page guide. Whitsunday Marketing and Development has already taken up this opportunity with the release of a 20-page Wedding Whitsunday Guide, available as its own mini-magazine download for free through the GDW App.
The print magazine will continue to remain available through Australian newsagencies and via subscription for the many couples who still love the tangible experience glossy magazines offer. It is also available in selected bookstores in Asia and New Zealand.
Email email@example.com for more information about the print magazine, the website, the GDW App, or the opportunity to discuss a branded Wedding and Romance App for your business.
*The print magazine is available for $9.90.

Like many busy couples, Oli and Annie were just six months from their big day and in need of help. Swamped with a house renovation, starting a new job and finishing a diploma – not to mention all the ‘wedmin’ – they had no time to plan the unique, adventurous honeymoon they’d always dreamed of. That’s when the stressed couple turned to Experience Travel Group, whose expert consultants are past masters in shouldering honeymoon hassle and making dream trips a reality. The tailor-made holiday specialist rose to the challenge with aplomb, creating a sensational new ‘Ceylonymoon’ in Sri Lanka especially for them!
Experience Travel Group’s consultants are all people who have lived in, visited and know their specialist areas inside out. For them, it’s not just about being in-country, it’s about enjoying the whole process of planning, building a sense of excitement and anticipation, and sharing those experiences afterwards. After spending time talking to Oli and Annie to understand their different ‘loves and loathes’, budgets – and even their philosophical outlook on life – the team set about custom-building a 18-day trip perfectly tailored to suit them.
The couple’s taste for adventure saw them exploring the stunning Sri Lankan countryside, visiting the UNESCO-protected Sigiriya and going on an elephant safari. This being a honeymoon though, there was also plenty of romantic down time: Relaxing on private beaches, by the pool, or beside stunning freshwater lakes; toasting their marriage over sunset cocktails in Galle – and all the while staying in hand-picked exclusive boutique hotels. To read Oli and Annie’s Ceylonymoon story in their own words, visit www.experiencetravelgroup.com/ceylonymoon.
Oli and Annie’s 18-day Ceylonymoon cost £4,147 per person including return flights, 16 nights’ accommodation, selected meals and excursions, and all transfers. Of course no two honeymoons are ever the same, so couples looking for a unique dream trip created especially for them can contact Experience Travel Group on tel: 020 3411 6196 or by visiting www.experiencetravelgroup.com.
