My fiancé has scheduled us a couples massage tomorrow morning as our last “date” before our wedding that is next Saturday (yay!). I’m so excited, but I’m also a little nervous. It wouldn’t be weird between him and I, but I’m worried about it being awkward and not so romantic with the aestheticians waiting for us or staring at us in the jacuzzi.. Haha maybe I’m just paranoid. Perhaps it’s just what you make of it!
Any suggestions or good/bad experiences?

@CzechBride14: def not awkward because the people who work their are professionals, and do this every day! So it’s really no big deal for them. Small bit of advice: if you mark or bruise easy, don’t get a deep tissue massage. occasionally it can leave small bruises that could still be visible on your wedding day.

@CzechBride14: The aestheticians won’t be there when you are in the jacuzzi. They usually have some signal to let you know that you should put on a robe and be ready. The place I have has a phone on the wall and they simply call and hang up.
However, I am in the US, where modesty is expected. Your name makes me think you may be european, where the rules on modesty are a bit different.

I had one once… with my mom! lol. we both wanted to get massages and saved some money going together. it’s two seperate therapists with the beds like 5 feet away from each other… you mention a jacuzzi so yours must be a little more romantic, so they expect the couples to enjoy it together.
just relax and enjoy it! congrats on the wedding.

@CzechBride14: I’ve done one with DH. It wasn’t awkward or enjoyable really. I like quiet during my massages so we didn’t talk the entire time. I won’t spend the extra money for a couple’s massage again.

It’s the exact same as a regular massage just with someone else a few feet away.
My BFF and I signed up for massages at a resort in Jamaica once, and they misunderstood and booked us for a couples massage, instead of two individual ones. They didnt’ have any individual rooms available so we took the couples massage.
Nothing weird about it.

@CzechBride14: We had a couples massage for our Valentine’s date this year!
It’s definitely not awkward. We were both so zoned out it didn’t even matter. Plus it’s nice to know you aren’t naked by yourself…
The jacuzzi was really nice. Drinks and chocolate, so yummy! We were allowed to come out whenever we wanted, so after the fun was over we just robbed up and make our way to the massage room.

We did one last month on vacation, and I was so focused on how awesome my massage was, I forgot that he was close by half the time. 🙂 So I wouldn’t necesarily say that they’re romantic- what’s nice about it, though, is that you’re both de-stressed at the same time.

We did one last year for our anniversary. we both loved it as it was our first massages ever.
I scheduled him a female and myself a male.
the awkward part for me was 4 people in the room and we chose not to converse. you can, but I opted for relaxing. It was a bit weird thPugh.
Also till this day my husband doesn’t live down that I had a “guy massage me and that he saw my butt” lol! He doesnt have hard feelings but seriously he even mentioned it today when I said I wanted another massage (I have a bad neck/shoulder) I also don’t like the idea of a female masseuse for me, I prefer male.
