What to do at a Bridal Shower
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 together with your friends and to give the bridal group a great pampering session prior to the wedding day.
Having a spa-themed bridal shower is also an excellent way to have a lot of girl fun!
Who doesn’t love the spa?
I know my girls and I plan a spa outing at least once a year just to pamper ourselves.
Weddings can be stressful as it is, and the perfect way to get the bride to relax a little is by taking her to the spa.
Go ahead and treat everyone to a day at a spa or create your own spa activities at home that everyone can remember.
So get a pen and paper, because we are going to look into planning a spa day bridal shower for your bride-to-be.

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
They are so many ways to plan a spa bridal shower, but our first tip is to decide 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 at another convenient location.
You can also choose to have a professional come out to cater to your needs.
In this case, you will need to look for spa bridal packages in your area.
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 are going to point you in the right direction on how to make your house smell like a spa.
Use a fragrance diffuser like this one 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 which is perfect for your spa-themed bridal shower.
Although this diffuser is a bit 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.
Your spa bridal shower invitations will definitely get people excited for the day.
There is no better place to get Bridal Shower invitations than Minted.com.
You can customize your unique bridal shower invitations with Minted.com which gives it a more of a DIY feel without too much hassle or work.
When should bridal shower invitations be mailed out?
If you are having your bridal shower at home, I think you may have more time.
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 definitely need more advanced notice.
In this case, I would suggest given approximately six or eight weeks’ time for long-distance guests to make transportation and accommodation arrangements.
I am loving this Foil-pressed bridal shower invitation under the Lacey line.
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 personally 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 absolutely important!)
Self-care is important 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 – perfect for 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, just make sure the theme flows effortlessly through the day.
Customize your bottles with these wine labels!
What to wear at spa bridal shower?
The perfect outfit for a bridal shower is bathrobes.
And I absolutely 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 amazing look books and the bathrobes will complete your Spa Bridal shower look perfectly.

Your guests will want to come in casual, comfortable clothing in order 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 that 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 some cute flip-flops, so you absolutely need to have some at your event.
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.
If you are getting ready to attend this wedding, you will definitely need nice clear skin to go with that.
I personally recommend a nice homemade face mask for glowing skin!
We have an amazing list of 15 DIY or Homemade Face masks to give you gorgeous and glowing skin.
I really love this Coconut Oil and Cocoa Mask, which is great for smoothing out 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, my big recommendation is to try out homemade face masks!
I know when I did, it was a huge hit with my friends.

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 Thank you cards.
Spa bridal shower ideas (games and activities)
You can’t plan a bridal shower spa day without games and activities for the crew.
The spa itself is activity enough, but I think adding one or two games might seal the deal perfectly.
You want your guests to be entertained.
Here is some spa bridal shower activities you can include:
- Newly-wed question games
- Bridal shower bingo
- What’s in your purse
All of these can definitely be fun for your day.
