A quick reference guide for brides on the fast track:
Hydrate your Body
Hydrate your Skin
Taking time to rest and paying attention to proper nutrition can fly out the window when you are busy. Yet these are important basics that will keep your immune system strong, your body balanced and your skin vibrant. A poor diet and lack of rest can dramatically affect your health, your skin and your attitude. Click through for our tips on what to consider in regard to self care before and after your wedding. These are great suggestions for the groom as well. If he is not interested at this time, you can get him involved closer to the day of the wedding.
If he hasn’t gotten on board before now, be sure to entice your groom to join you at the spa for a relaxing massage at the very least. Your count down care begins now, so be sure to check in on these important points.
Couples Scrub and Massage
We provide a complimentary Foot Soak and Foot Massage in the garden with a woodsy cup of tea; your treatments can occur side by side in a couple’s room to complete this sweet retreat. Scrubs and Massage Menu
A calming touch can go a long way in the last few weeks before the wedding. Gently cradling your partner’s head while they are lying down with eyes closed is a very quick way to calm the body and quiet the mind. Take turns when you can’t get to the spa.
Treat Your Eyes
Remember to stay hydrated!
No Salt, No Fatty Foods, No Caffeine
Do not start a crash diet at this point, it will only weaken your body and reduce your energy. If you are truly the bride that can’t slow down, don’t forget your water bottle with Akatsuki Enzymes.
Spa Party for the Wedding Party
Avoid Caffeine and Salty or Fatty Foods
Calming Teas as Sleep Aid
If the wedding is in a few hours, be sure to eat well to help keep your body balanced – you don’t want to faint.
