Your wedding day is fast approaching and if there’s one thing you should prioritise during this magical time, it’s rest and relaxation. Yes, sure – the final list of wedding-planning tasks you have to complete before your big day may seem never-ending and a bit overwhelming but taking time out for yourself is oh-so-important. Of course, finding the time to break away for a spa retreat to pamper yourself or get that all-important pre-wedding facial and mani-pedi can be tough. So why not bring the spa to you? Beauty Direct takes the hassle out of visiting the spa by bringing a full-service spa and beauty salon to your doorstep in the Cape.
Whether you want a pamper session with your bridesmaids the day before your wedding or need a little ‘me time’ prior to the walk down the aisle, Beauty Direct travels to wherever you are, saving you time and making the whole process stress free. Let the Beauty Direct team take care of travelling while you enjoy a relaxing treatment in the comfort of your own home or at your wedding venue.
An intimate, private spa experience
This unique offering is a must-try for busy brides who want to make their engagement time and wedding planning extra special and a whole lot more convenient. “This is by far more convenient for the bride and her bridal party,” explains Beauty Direct owner, Zelda Roux. “Having the treatments done in the comfort of your room or location of choice saves you time on travelling which is very important for a bride who has 101 things to do.” And, of course, there’s also the added benefit a more intimate and fun atmosphere at a private location of your choice. “It’s fun having all the bridesmaids, mothers and family all together being pampered while they drink wine,” says Zelda.
What’s more, there’s something a little extra special about using a private mobile spa service instead of visiting a spa. “Being a mobile therapist, you really get to experience people from all walks of life. You enter their personal space and this creates a special bond between you and the client, even if it’s just for a short moment,” says Zelda.
Convenience is a bride’s best friend!
The qualified Beauty Direct therapists specialise in mobile spa treatments including massages, facials, hand and foot treatments, waxing, and more. They bring all of the necessary equipment required for the treatment along with them and will transform your at-home ‘treatment room’ into a tranquil paradise of note. The team is available for bookings Monday to Friday from 08:00 – 19:00 as well as Saturdays and Sundays from 08:00 to 18:30, giving you the flexibility to have a pamper session when it suits you!
But the convenience doesn’t stop there! Beauty Direct is also part of the Wedding Cartel team, a unique collective of wedding service providers covering everything from wedding flowers, decor, and photography to beauty treatments, hair, make-up, and even wedding planning services. With an expert team of vetted suppliers, this unique crew of wedding experts come together to form a vendor powerhouse that can make any couple’s wedding dreams come true. While the vendors may all run their own individual wedding service businesses, they work together like a well-oiled machine to ensure their clients’ special day goes off without a hitch.
Zelda and her team love being part of the Wedding Cartel crew as it means added benefits for Beauty Direct brides.
“We work well together and we can discuss things amongst each other without having to bother the bride,” explains Zelda. And, of course, it’s a whole lot more fun working with a crew who have already bonded. “For us, it is loads of fun as we are seeing our friends at work, it creates a fun happy atmosphere for us and the bridal party!”
Tips and tricks for brides-to-be
Struggling to decide what treatments you should book before and on your wedding day? In addition to the usual facial and mani-pedi for the bride, Zelda suggests taking time out with your groom to relax the morning of the wedding. Booking a couple’s massage is a great way to ensure you start your day stress-free and reduce any anxiety you may be feeling. “Brides also opt for a full body scrub, so their skin looks radiant on the day and allows a better even application of bronzer,” explains Zelda.
If you really want to ensure the morning of your wedding is relaxed and stress-free, Zelda also suggests that brides consider doing some of their beauty treatments the day before the wedding. “Although we are able to work successfully work with our Wedding Cartel partner, Mist Make-up at the same time to get nails, hair, and make-up done in time, it is also nice to do all the manicures, pedicures, and waxing the day before, so there is less to do on the day and the bride and her bridal party aren’t rushed the morning of the wedding,” explains Zelda.
