A Bridal Party

A bride and her best girls relax in style before her big day with an afternoon at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead.

Mandy Livingston, Ashley Smith, Diana Ludwig and Melissa Whitehouse enjoy a day of relaxation before the big day.

If you’re like many brides, you’ve probably spent about a year mapping out every last detail of one of the best days of your life. So, it goes without saying, stress levels build as your wedding day approaches. Take a cue from Ashley Smith’s playbook, who wed in August, and make a date for sheer bliss before the big day. The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, 3434 Peachtree Road NE, 404.237.2700

Ashley Smith, Bride
TREATMENT: 50-minute signature massage

“I got to pick from three different oil aromas, which were all amazing, but I chose the lavender one. The massage tables were heated, which was a big plus for me because I’m always cold. I had a lot of tension between my shoulders, so my aesthetician used a hot towel on my back to loosen up my muscles.”

“The spa day really helped me to relax from all the last-minute wedding planning details. I can’t say I was nervous about any one thing; just in general I wanted everything to run smoothly and look beautiful. And it all absolutely did! All of our vendors went above and beyond, and I was beyond floored when I first walked into our reception and saw our linens, flowers, cake and candy bar. All in all, it was perfect! It was the best day of my life, and I married the man of my dreams!”

Mandy Livingston, Bridesmaid

“The aromatherapy products, along with the lower-leg massage, made for an incredibly relaxing experience. Bridesmaids tend to do a lot of standing in high heels and walking around in preparation for their friends’ weddings. No achy feet for this bridesmaid!”

Diana Ludwig, Maid of honor
TREATMENT: Gel manicure

“My favorite part was the almond scrub and moisturizer. I liked how this was an extra step outside a normal manicure, and it made my hands feel amazing!”

Melissa Whitehouse, Matron of honor

“I had the basic facial, which was about an hour long. She did a great job, and my skin felt soft
and refreshed.”
