Before they head to the chapel, many brides and grooms head to the spa so they can look and feel their best for the big day. The best spas around the world design packages that cater to the happy couple, as well as their wedding parties.
“The ISPA Spa Industry Study shows that 54 percent of spas offer a special wedding package, and that’s more than any other themed package,” said Lynne McNees, president of the International SPA Association. “In just the last year, we have seen the number of men visiting a spa increase, so now more than ever, we see spas offering treatments for both the bride and the groom.”
To inspire salon and spas interested in designing their own bridal packages, some ISPA members graciously gave us a peak at their bridal offerings. Take a look:
