Forget crash diets and gym memberships. Busy brides-to-be can lose those last few inches before their wedding day from the comfort of a spa.


Tori Holmes, a trainer for spa distributing company Body Beautiful Canada, said a spa treatment should be part of every bride’s budget.


She described two timesaving treatments that Vancouver brides have discovered to reduce stress and waistlines.


The eurowave slimming and toning machine stimulates and tightens your muscles and is guaranteed to drop you down a whole dress size.


"What you’d be doing (for months) in the gym you’re doing in three to four weeks in a spa," she said.


"If you’re getting married in two weeks the universal contour body wrap is a great alternative. It’s like a tummy tuck and a bum lift without surgery."


"Because you’re de-toxing it’s like you’re letting go. And isn’t that what marriage is? You’re starting something new … and you’re at your optimum."


Trina Nguyen, owner of Trinity Salon and Spa in Burnaby, said the treatments leave people feeling more energetic and healthy.


"And it helps you escape that (pre-wedding) stress," she said.

treatments and costs




  • The $399 10-course eurowave treatment takes 18 minutes a session. Small pads placed on the body release electric currents into muscles, mimicking a workout.

  • The body wrap starts at $150 and treatments last two hours. Elasticized bandages, which are pre-soaked in a mineral-rich clay solution, sculpt and tighten your body and draw out toxins.
