After teetering on heels and dancing up a storm at your wedding, your besties are going to need some pampering, relaxation and rejuvenation. While you’re enjoying sand, surf, sun and, of course, time away with your newhusband, let your friends soak up some special attention at a local spa. A few in the area to consider include The Spirit Spa in Oldwick, Mosaic Salon & Spa in Shrewsbury, and Renaissance Salon & Spa in Tinton Falls.
If your bridesmaids are your sisters or best friends, you probably know which scents they like. If not, try to snoop around a bit in advance of your big day to see what types of lotions and potions they have in their bathrooms. Then, stock up at the stores and websites that have high-quality moisturizers, cleansers and body butters: Burt’s Bees , Origins and The Body Shop are good places to start.
Whether your bridesmaids are into musicals, rock concerts, baseball games, movies or history museums, a pair of tickets to a favorite event or venue tells them “thank you!” in a big way. Remember how much time they’ve set aside to make sure that your special day runs without a hitch; give them each a personal gift of time to spend on something that they love.
Chances are, your bridesmaids have gotten you some sexy, flirty negligees; host a bit of a bachelorette party in reverse, and give them the gift of pretty, silky lingerie. Peruse the selections at Victoria’s Secret , or order online without any hassle at Pampered Passions .
Particularly if you’re among the first to get married in your group of friends, your pals may be worried that you won’t have time for them once you skip off into the sunset with Mr. Right. Put their minds at ease by presenting them with invitations to be your guest at a cooking or pottery class, a wine tasting or a cultural event that takes place after you return from your honeymoon.
