Spa bridal shower ideas
If you are looking for cute spa bridal shower ideas, you have come to the right place.
Bridal showers are pre-wedding celebrations thrown for the bride-to-be.
They are usually organized by the bridesmaids or close friends and family members of the bride.
The purpose of a wedding shower is to shower the bride with gifts, love, and attention.
It’s a chance for the bride to spend time with her loved ones and celebrate the upcoming wedding.
Are you left in charge of planning the bride’s bridal shower?
Why not plan a spa-themed bridal shower?
A spa bridal shower is an excellent way to spend time with your friends and give the bridal group a tremendous pampering session before the wedding day.
A spa-themed bridal shower is also an excellent way to have girl fun before the big day!
Who doesn’t love a good spa day?
My girls and I plan a spa outing at least once a year to pamper ourselves.
Weddings can be stressful, and the perfect way to get the bride to relax is by taking her to the spa.
A spa day is not only a great way to help the bride relax before the wedding, but it can also be a fun bonding experience for the bridal party.
If you are in charge of planning the wedding shower and are on a budget, we suggest you plan a DIY spa day at home.
Set up some relaxing music, light candles, and give each other manicures and pedicures.
Go ahead and treat everyone to a day at a spa or create your spa activities at home that everyone can remember.
So get a pen and paper because we will look into planning a spa day bridal shower for your bride-to-be.

Ready To Plan A Spa Themed Bridal Shower

Then these easy tips will get you on the right track for planning a wedding shower like no other.
Hosting a spa-themed bridal shower at home is a great way to create a relaxing and enjoyable experience for the bride-to-be and her guests.
Set the mood with calming music, candles, and diffused essential oils.
Provide spa treatments such as facials, massages, and manicures, and serve healthy snacks and drinks like fruit-infused water and herbal tea.
Encourage the bride squad to wear comfortable clothing and provide robes and slippers to change into.
With a bit of creativity and planning, a spa-themed bridal shower can be a memorable and rejuvenating experience for everyone involved.
And if you are on a budget, feel free to leave certain things out (grab this free wedding bucket list planner to write down your ideas and wish list)!
Make your home smell like a spa.
There are many ways to plan a spa bridal shower, but our first tip is deciding where you want to host your spa-themed bridal shower extravaganza.
As we mentioned, you can have your spa-themed bridal shower at home, at the bride’s house, at the spa or another convenient location.
You can also choose a professional to come out to cater to your needs.
In this case, you must look for spa bridal packages.
If you are doing it yourself, then let’s get started.
Once that is decided, you need to make your home smell like a spa to give it a realistic feel.
We will point you in the right direction to make your house smell like a spa.
There are several ways to make your house smell like a spa.
One way is to use essential oils in a diffuser or add a few drops to a bowl of hot water.
You can also use scented candles, incense, or potpourri to create a relaxing aroma.
Another option is using natural ingredients such as herbs, flowers, or citrus fruits to make air fresheners or room sprays.
Use a fragrance diffuser like this to make your home smell like a spa. Or you can grab my favourite diffuser, Lafco Reed Diffuser!
It’s a blend of lilac with touches of rose petals and jasmine, perfect for your spa-themed bridal shower.
Although this diffuser is expensive, it will glam up your spa-themed bridal shower.
Other recommendations to make your home smell like a spa:
Invitations to your Spa Bridal shower
If you are looking for ways to plan a spa bridal shower and still keep with the theme, you need some invitations to go with it.
It is customary to send invitations for wedding showers to invite guests to celebrate and shower the bride-to-be with gifts and well wishes.
Invitations can be customized to match the theme and style of the wedding shower and should include important details such as the date, time, location, and RSVP information.
Your spa wedding shower invitations will get people excited for the day.
There is no better place to get bridal shower invitations than on Minted!
You can customize your unique bridal shower invitations with Minted.com, which gives it more of a DIY feel without too much hassle or work.
When should bridal shower invitations be mailed out?
You may have more time if you are having your bridal shower at home.
If many guests will be local, aim to send the invites approximately four to six weeks before the spa day bridal shower.
And if your spa bridal shower involves many out-of-town guests, you need more advanced notice.
In this case, I suggest giving long-distance guests approximately six or eight weeks to arrange transportation and accommodation.
You can get fantastic wedding shower invitations on Minted!
The Best Cocktail For A Spa Bridal Shower
When looking for ways to plan a spa bridal shower, you need to ensure you have everything planned out for the event to run smoothly and be memorable.
Your bridal shower spa day won’t be complete without the right mix of drinks for your girls to enjoy.
So how can we ensure that your spa and bar make sense for the day?
I think having Mimosas for your themed bridal shower is perfect.
But let’s dig deep and make this day even more special.
To ensure that your spa day bridal shower theme is complete, these three cocktails include plenty of self-care potential (because that is important!)
Self-care is essential for all involved as it can significantly reduce stress.
The three cocktails I mentioned earlier include coconut oil, rose water and eucalyptus as its ingredient.
- Eucalyptus Martini – the perfect solution for your relaxation needs (get the recipe here).
- Konomi – break out the coconut oil to soothe your body inside and out (get this recipe right here).
- Veronica Rose – sweet, floral and uplifting (make it using these ingredients).
When planning a wedding shower, ensure the theme flows effortlessly through the day.
Customize your bottles with these wine labels!
If you are looking for ideas for food to serve at a spa-themed bridal shower, here are a few suggestions:
- Fresh fruit skewers with a yogurt dip
- Cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese and dill
- Salad in a jar with mixed greens, berries, and a citrus vinaigrette
- Mini quiches with spinach and feta cheese
- Herbal tea and infused water stations
- Chocolate-covered strawberries for a sweet treat
Remember to consider any dietary restrictions or allergies of the guests and present the food visually appealing to enhance the spa theme.
Here is another list of healthy, delicious spa party food ideas to serve at your event!
What to wear at the spa bridal shower?
If you plan to throw a spa-themed bridal shower, you will want you and your guests to wear something comfortable and easy to move in.
Consider a flowy maxi dress or a pair of comfortable leggings with a loose tunic top for a local spa.
The bride can wear a white flowy maxi dress if she prefers a bridal look.
Accessorize with simple jewelry and comfortable shoes that are easy to slip on and off.
Consider a pair of sandals or flats that are easy to wear and won’t get ruined if wet.
I’d like you to aim for a relaxed and comfortable outfit that will allow you to enjoy the spa experience fully.
The perfect outfit for a spa bridal shower is a bathrobe.
And I recommend wearing matching batch robes for your at-home spa bridal shower!
And you won’t find a better mix-and-match robe than what Plum Pretty Sugar has to offer.
They have fantastic lookbooks, and the bathrobes will perfectly complete your spa bridal shower look.

Your guests will want to come in casual, comfortable clothing to be prepared for the day.
I suggest you also ask them to bring any essentials, such as towels or sandals!
So maybe have the bathrobes and all the extras they might need already at the party.

Customize your flip-flops with Zazzle.
You know you need some flip-flops to complete your themed spa bridal shower event.
I don’t know about you, but every time I go to a spa, I am handed cute flip-flops, so you need to have some at your event.
Flip-flops are a popular choice for spa parties.
They are comfortable and easy to slip on and off, making them perfect for relaxation and pampering.
Additionally, they can be personalized to match the theme or colour scheme of the party.
You can grab these at your local store at an affordable price.
If you have no time, get a few pairs from Amazon and have them customized with Zazzle.
A great size to grab is size eight.
DIY Face masks for your spa bridal shower party
Your spa event wouldn’t be complete without the perfect DIY Face masks.
A healthy and beautiful face mask can help cleanse and exfoliate the skin.
They provide a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for guests and the bride-to-be.
You will need nice clear skin if you are getting ready to attend this wedding.
I recommend a nice homemade face mask for glowing skin!
There are a variety of masks to choose from, including clay, sheet, and peel-off masks.
Clay masks are great for oily skin, while sheet masks are perfect for dry or sensitive skin.
Peel-off masks can help remove impurities and dead skin cells.
It’s essential to choose a mask appropriate for your skin type and follow the instructions carefully.
We have a fantastic list of 15 DIY or Homemade Face masks to give you gorgeous and glowing skin.
I love this coconut oil and cocoa mask, which is excellent for smoothing the skin.
If DIY is not your thing, check out these Amazon picks, which will work wonders.
At the end of the day, if you are hosting a spa-themed bridal shower, I strongly recommend trying homemade face masks!
Hosting a spa party with facial masks can be a fun way to pamper yourself and your friends.
I know it was a massive hit with my friends when I did.
Gift the bridesmaid with organic soap.
I hope you enjoyed all our fun ideas and ways to plan a spa bridal shower.
We absolutely cannot let you have a bridal shower without having gifts.
You will need some fabulous goody bags that your bridal party can take home with them at the end of the day.
And don’t forget some gifts to give out if you play bridal shower games and some to gift to the bride.
For the bride, you can read this post where I share 10 gifts for the newly engaged bride!
You must be creative regarding inexpensive bridal shower gift ideas for the bridal party.
Ideally, you want gifts that perfectly fit the theme for your bridal shower spa day.
Think of nail polish (maybe get the wedding day colours), mini emery boards, cute flip flops, bath bombs, etc.
The list is endless.
And from here, you can create mini party bags to hand out.
Why not end your spa celebration by gifting the guests with these organic soaps found on Amazon?
They come in sets of 9, and you can give one per person and individually wrap them with these cute thank-you cards!
Don’t forget to grab this wedding gift tracker to help keep track of the gifts received, and it can also assist in sending out thank you cards and keeping a record of who gave what.
Spa bridal shower ideas (games and activities)
You can’t plan a bridal shower spa day without games and activities for the crew.
Games and activities are a great way to add extra fun and excitement when planning a bridal shower spa day.
The spa is active enough, but adding one or two games might seal the deal perfectly.
You want your guests to be entertained.
Here are some spa bridal shower activities you can include:
- Yoga: It allows guests to relax and unwind while also getting some exercise. Consider hiring a yoga instructor to lead a class or using a Youtube video for guests to follow.
- Bridal Bingo: Create bingo cards with wedding-related words or phrases. As the bride-to-be opens gifts, guests can mark off the corresponding squares on their cards. The first person to get a bingo wins a prize. I love this “Find The Guest” wedding shower alternative game to Bingo!
- DIY Facials: Set up a DIY facial station with different types of facial masks, cucumber slices, and other spa essentials. Guests can create their own personalized pampering experience.
- Wedding Trivia: Test your guests’ knowledge of the bride and groom with a fun wedding trivia game. You can answer your questions or use these – Newlywed question games.
- Nail Polish Bar: Set up a nail polish station with various colours and designs for guests. They can paint their nails while enjoying some relaxation time.
- Photo Booth: Set up a photo booth area with fun props and decorations. Guests can take pictures and create fun memories together.
All of these can be fun for your day.
You can also grab the “Who Knows The Bride-To-Be Best” trivia question printable below.
Remember, the most important thing is ensuring your guests have a great time and feel pampered and appreciated.
With some creativity, you can plan a wedding shower spa day that everyone will remember for years.
