Getting married in Steamboat Springs? Time to check the checklist. Dress, check. Rings, check. Venue, check. Flowers, check. Cake, check. Music, guest gifts, bridesmaid dresses, tuxedos… check, check, check, check. Did you book a photographer? How many RSVPs have come back? Who is going to sit next to whom? It’s amazing how much work goes into one day and how much the stress can turn the most cheerful couple into “bridezilla and groomzilla”!
There is however, one key element of the wedding tradition that is meant to remind the bride and groom exactly why they are getting married and help them forget about the stress involved in the entire affair. This is the pre-wedding exchange of gifts. While engraved cufflinks or a jewelry box is a nice memento, why not get your special someone something she/he really needs before the big day? We suggest scheduling one last event to help the bride and groom fall in love again – SPA DAY at Life Essentials Day Spa in Steamboat Springs, CO.
Spa Day at Life Essentials Day Spa in Steamboat Springs
For Brides we offer our Queen For A Day Package, designed to pamper the bride with a 60 minute sugar glow scrub, a 60 minute deep tissue massage, an ultimate Anti-Aging Facial, ultimate manicure and ultimate pedicure. This six-hour treatment will take all the bride’s cares away. Call in advance and we can make arrangements for bridesmaids, mothers and grandmothers to join the fun. For parties of four or more, that are booked far enough in advance, we may be able to close the spa for your private party. The bridal party is welcome to bring in their own hors d’oeuvres and champagne to celebrate with. Our contribution to your celebrations is a group discount on massage services. Our massages can relieve tension to ensure the big event runs smoothly. They are also a great way for the bride to get to know her mother-in-law and other friends and family members on the groom’s side. Facials can help skin glow for the photographer as he/she clicks away, capturing memories that last a lifetime.
If the wedding couple wants to come in together we recommend the Friends Forever Package, which includes a 60 minute deep tissue massage and can be done either in separate rooms or in our custom couple’s massage room. The massage is followed by a signature facial to cleanse and refresh skin.
For the groom, our Earth Package, consisting of a deep tissue massage and 30-mintue reflexology treatment is a perfect choice to prep his stand at the alter. A one-hour massage will help wipe away pre-wedding jitters.
Post-wedding, we highly suggest booking a couple’s massage– a romantic and relaxing way to unwind from the hubbub of guests and family members. During your first date as man and wife, you lie side-by-side as our therapists work on any knots you may have acquired from dancing the night away. At the end of the treatment, relax, join your hands together and remember, true love means taking care of yourself and those you love most.
