FACIAL

Spruce Body Lab

Putting your best face forward means some skin pre-prep is in order. Trust your visage to the staff at Spruce who conduct customized facials in the clean, quiet serenity of their modern spa environment. You’ll cozy between soft sheets in a warm bed while an aesthetician cleans and exfolliates your face and performs any necessary extractions. Next, relax with a shoulder and neck massage while a hydrating mask works magic. For long-lasting results try the gentle, French-created Milk Peel: four treatments over eight weeks take the guess work out of your pre-wedding skin prep routine and include all the products necessary for guaranteeing radian skin on your big day. All those Parisian women can’t be wrong. Facial from $110: peel $560.

MASSAGE

Spruce Body Lab

Ease onto a soft massage table beneath fleece blankets and heated pads and prepare to unwind. Registered massage therapists at this Yaletown retreat are highly experienced. Translation: Under their healing hands you will completely loosen up. You will also learn tricks and tips for stretching your muscles in order to relax yourself. And because they’re RMTs, your dreamy massage could be covered by your benefits, meaning more money for you to spend on your honeymoon. From $100.
