Wedding or Hen’s Party at a Day Spa
Months or years go into planning a Noosa wedding including every detail, from where to hold the ceremony, through to what to wear and the last thing you need is to be stressed on your big day. The laid back holiday atmosphere in Noosa attracts people who want a relaxed wedding vibe but the stress of the lead up to the wedding day can be daunting and take the edge of such a special occasion. The pressure to fulfill social expectations, please a wide variety of people and get everything organised can be nerve-wracking for the bride, groom and their families.
A day spa visit before the event can be the perfect way to chill out while spending time with the bridal party, close family and friends before the big day. It’s the best way to relieve the strain and reset the mood so that everyone can enjoy the big event.
Here are three reasons why you should make a day spa visit part of your Noosa wedding celebrations:
1. Let’s get this wedding party started!
A wedding celebration brings families and friends together for what can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yet the wedding day itself can feel too short and busy with so many people to entertain and so much to do, including the ceremony, formal festivities and photographs.
Noosa weddings are no different and, despite the relaxed holiday vibe, often newlyweds and wedding guests feel the time spent in Noosa and the big day whizzed by too fast.
Bringing people together pre-event is a great time to catch up and meet others.
Planning a day to relax before the wedding with a group at ikatan Spa is a perfect way to start the celebrations and bring everyone together in a relaxed environment. Wedding party spa visits work equally well for the wedding party or girls only get-togethers, including those looking for a more sophisticated form of the traditional hens night or mixed-gender parties which are becoming very popular. After all, the boys love to have a massage and relax with a glass of wine or beer before the big day too.
Spa parties are particularly successful for multi-generational parties, because day spa treatments have a universal appeal, for everyone from teenagers through to their great-grandparents. We’ve never come across anyone who didn’t like being pampered while enjoying food and nibbles in our tropical gardens at ikatan Spa!
2. De-Stressed kind of Wedding is Best.
Why wait until the wedding is over, for your honeymoon to start before you relax? A day spa visit is the quickest way to de-stress and get everyone feeling cheerful.
Many of ikatan Spa’s treatments are specially designed to help people de-stress. For instant stress relief, we recommend a spa package or longer treatments like the 90-minute Chi Massage. But even a Serenity Massage Package or a pedicure in our garden rooms, is guaranteed to dial down stress and restore a sense of balance.
It’s not just our treatments that relax people either, it’s the chance to enjoy time in the garden before and/or after the treatment, with a complimentary glass of champagne or pot of tea, that gives people time to really unwind. There’s a wine list, including craft beers, as well as food available at ikatan Spa and our chefs at The Rolling Dolamade Catering are always happy to organise other catering options as well as dietary requirements. So if you want to spend longer hanging out together after treatments in our garden you can.
3. Feel and Look Your Best.
Everyone wants to look their best at a wedding because, although the day itself will fly by, the photos will last forever. Facials, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures are essential to help you feel confident and look your best.
One of the most ask questions: I don’t want a facial before the wedding as it may cause a breakout, what else can I have instead in my package? We understand this common apprehension prior to a wedding and we are always happy to offer a package without a facial. Facials don’t cause breakouts but stress will. Facials in the past where you had extractions used to cause red marks but skincare now is designed to give you the best skin immediately after the facial and even better skin a few days later.
Will the treatments effect my fake tan? We have so many options for packages at ikatan Spa and our massage oil does not affect your fake tan! However, it is best to have your tan done after a body scrub for a more even appearance.
There’s no hard sell of products after your treatment at ikatan, in fact, we take you away from the retail area in reception and to the gardens instead straight after your treatments. The gardens at ikatan Spa are where your therapists says good-bye to you as she delivers your glass of champagne or pot of tea (we have a non-alcoholic sparkling too) and leaves you to relax in nature as it’s an important part of the experience at ikatan!
ikatan Spa reception is staffed with therapists and are there to help you if you need advice or wish to try or buy anything.
All too often, the bride and bridal party can be out of booked the day before the wedding with meeting the celebrant or florist, checking the reception venue and attending wedding rehearsals. Two days before the wedding, most guests have arrived and this is usually the best time to book ikatan Spa for a spa party and time together.
At ikatan Spa, everyone can come along for treatments, with space for the whole bridal party and friends. Which means you can maximise the time you spend together, particularly if wedding guests have traveled interstate or from overseas and need to recuperate from flights or jet lag before the wedding day.
The ikatan Day Spa experience and environment is an unmissable part of any visit to Noosa and should be a prerequisite for wedding parties that want to look and feel their best. It’s the perfect group get-together location.
