Believe it or not, not every bride wants to spend her last night as a single lady dancing on tables. If the bride-to-be isn’t exactly a party girl of note then chances are she’d prefer her last ‘fling before the ring’ to be more of a classy affair. Luckily for busy Maids of Honour everywhere, 2017 is the year of the sophisticated bachelorette party – which means a little less phallic necklaces and a whole lot more luxury! If you’re organising a bachelorette party for your bestie then you can’t go wrong with a ladies-only pamper party at a local beauty salon. Pamper parties are a great way to treat the bride and give her the opportunity to connect and have fun with her favourite ladies before the big day. Not convinced? Our favourite Cape Town glam station, Cape Town Beauty Bar shows us why a trip to the beauty salon is the best way to celebrate with the bride-to-be and how to pull off the best pamper party in the history of ever!

Get a good deal:

An afternoon at a beauty salon with your besties doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. Look out for great group deals and pamper party deals at your local beauty salons and spa. You’re bound to find something to suit your needs and budget but don’t be afraid to ask for a group discount either – loads of spots will be happy to chat about a special deal for the special day.

If you’re in Cape Town you’ll want to take advantage of Cape Town Beauty Bar’s incredible pamper specials. We love the sound of the Hangover Pamper at R600 per person which includes a bloody or virgin mary cocktail on arrival along with a Radiance Collagen Booster Masque, Cucumber Eye Cooler, cooling Mint and Lavender Head Massage, Blow Dry, Rejuvenating Foot Soak, Scrub, & Massage.

Find a one-stop-shop:

Find a beauty salon or spa that offers a wide variety of treatments to suit different tastes and needs for all the ladies attending the pamper party. Plus, a spot that offers a wide variety of treatments will ensure you can pamper the bride from head-to-toe – we’re talking hair, nails, face, and more!

Don’t forget the drinks & snacks:

Just because it’s a low-key affair doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! If you’re hosting your pamper party at a salon ask them about arranging some simple drinks and snacks for you or enquire about bringing in your own. A few bottles of champagne and jugs of orange juice are all you need to get the party started. To keep the hunger pangs at bay order a few snack or canape platters from a nearby restaurant and put them out for guests to enjoy.

Bring the party to you:

If you don’t want to go out or would rather host your pamper party in the comfort of your own home or another venue then why not set up a mobile pamper station at the bachelorette party venue? Contact your favourite beauty salon and find out if they offer mobile treatments. You can also negotiate a group booking price for parties with a large group of ladies.

Cape Town ladies will be thrilled to hear that Cape Town Beauty Bar has just launched their amazing and oh-so-convenient pop-up beauty bar. That’s right, the pamper experts are now able to bring the glamour to you! Whether it be your bachelorette party, birthday, wedding day, corporate function or a simple pamper party with your friends, they’re available and ready to please.

Take it the next level:

To really take your pamper party to the next level invest in some customised accessories for the big day. Go all out and spoil the bride and bridal party with custom printed bathrobes to wear at the pamper party. If you don’t want to blow your budget then something simple like a custom printed T-shirts or slippers for the bride and bridal party are also a fabulous, yet inexpensive, way to spoil everyone and make the party a little more fun.
