Zoe’s Sex In The City Themed Bridal Shower
Being your big cousins maid of honor comes with some advantages. For example knowing exactly what her favorite things are. So when the idea of a Sex and the City themed bridal shower at my aunties house was suggested we decided then and there that was it! But what would a Sex and the City themed shower be without some pampering? Which is where Jacqui and her fabulous team at Total Relaxation Therapy came into things. Having never organized a bridal shower before I was completely oblivious to the endless hours of hard work and planning that went into an event like this. Total Relaxation helped so much as they were so so easy to work with, and around. Jacqui was very helpful in answering any questions I had along the way and I felt our day was in very capable and professional hands.
When the day finally came it was a mad rush trying to get everything set up and decorated. In true Sex and the City themed bridal shower we decorated in black and pink with a New York theme and our guests enjoyed a variety of American themed nibbles such as Mini Burgers, Cocktail franks, Mini Pizza’s, Mini quiches and Meatballs. Our drinks menu was made up of 6 cocktails, Cosmopolitan’s (Alcoholic and Non Alcoholic), The Carrie, The Charlotte (Non Alcoholic), The Samantha and The Miranda, which were all based on their characters and didn’t contain too many difficult measurements or ingredients.
When the fabulous Total Relaxation team arrived they were very organized and on time. After checking with Jacqui, who was very flexible in organizing where we could set up, we decided to set up the mobile day spa in the upstairs living room as we thought it was a great open space where our pampered guests could relax away from the goings on downstairs!! Jacqui was also very helpful in organizing us a customized running schedule for the day to work around our many activities! Whilst 2 guests at a time were enjoying their beautiful treatments upstairs the rest of the group were downstairs partaking in activities such as Pash the Pic, Toilet Paper Brides, Help them write their vows, Pass the Parcel, Sex and the City trivia and The Bride and Groom Questionnaire.
Our main aim was to organize a day that our family and friends of all ages could enjoy and we certainly achieved that. Our group comprised of everyone from my Nan, Aunties and cousins of the bride, Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom, Family of the Groom and Friends of the Bride. We gave our guests the option of having a treatment done as we didn’t want anyone to feel pressured into participating and of our 30 guests more than half were happy to participate which was an excellent result!
So to wrap things up Total Relaxation Therapy was definitely the best choice for the day and we are over the moon with the result we achieved. All our guests commented on our therapists high level of professionalism and on what a fantastic job they did, especially with a larger group size! It’s fair to say it was an event that they will remember with a lot of laughter and happiness and I thank the girls at Total Relaxation for being such a big part of making my job as Maid of Honor so easy!! I will be sure to recommend them to anyone planning such an event!!
