Brides, we know that planning your day can be extremely stressful. From the catering details to the seating charts and music playlist, the details can soon become overwhelming. That’s why I, along with your WBM editors, am always trying to find the best services, vendors, brands and locations to ease your planning efforts. This month, I ventured to Oasis Day Spa in New York City to test out their services. What better way to relax on or before the big day than with a great spa treatment?
Oasis Day Spa is located on Park Avenue in the basement of a large, beautiful stone building, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy, noisy streets. The lobby is filled with amazing products, tempting us from every corner. The wide selection of lotions, oils, perfumes, creams and treatments are all personally selected by their therapists and customers—tried and true at its finest.
I was led into the changing room by a front desk assistant through the mood lit, spacious hallways and given a plush robe and comfortable slip-ons. The locker rooms are equipped with easy to use lockers, showers, a steam room and large dressing area. After changing, I was told to go to the communal relaxation room, a circular room with a selection of teas and lemon and cucumber infused water, as well as an assortment of nuts and dried fruits. For the brides-to-be, there are bridal magazines as well as your standard fashion and tabloid magazines, so you can either keep planning or zone out.
Unlike other spas, the rooms at Oasis are spacious, the beds are warmed pre-entry and the staff wholly pleasant and accommodating. Offers a full range of bridal services, including nails, massages, make-up application, and facials, all of which can be outsourced to your hotel or location if you’d like to prep and primp before your big day. I personally recommend the seasonal aromatherapy and deep tissue massage (October’s scent is pumpkin—amazing!). I also tested out their make-up services for you, brides, which you can learn more about by watching our video!
While the spa would be a wonderful treat for you and your mother, maid of honor or fiancé, there is also a special room large enough to accommodate your entire bridal party. The room is available in advance with catering and a range of spa services, from nails and massages to make-up applications. The exceptional and truly customer-focused nature of Oasis allows your party to have everything and anything you need to celebrate your big day as you are pampered in luxury.
