    I’d go for the wrap, my skin does NOT handle facials well and I wouldn’t want to risk being broken out for the wedding.

    A facial might make you break out!

    Unless you go to that spa/salon regularly and know how you react to the facial, I’d also vote for the body wrap.  I stay red (and slightly tender) for DAYS after a facial.  And if I wear make-up in that time, I often end up breaking out.

    ETA: a massage is usually nice though!  Have you considered one?

    Yea, if you haven’t gotten a facial or body wrap, you won’t know if you might have a reaction.  I would see about a massage or something if you want.

    I’ve heard good things about the body wrap from friends.  I wouldn’t risk a facial a week out from the wedding.

    I voted other, I’d get a hand massage, then you are ready for all the photos of your hands on your big day.

    I wouldn’t risk a facial either. On my skin it would be a 50/50 chance of it breaking me out or giving me a rash.

    I would go for a body wrap.  You don’t know how it will react on your skin, and you don’t want redness or breakouts before your wedding day.

    Body wrap/scrub. Not worth the risk of irriating your face.

    @KatyElle:  Ditto!  I always break out after facials before my skin clears up and looks great, so I would not get one anywhere near my wedding date.

    A body wrap or massage sounds heavenly!

    Of the two, a wrap… but honestly I’d rather have a massage.

    I would go for neither. There’s technically suppose to be two week time difference between your facial and event because you dont’ know how your face will redact or whether it will cause lingering pimples to come out. For the body wrap, what if you loose too many inches and your dress doesn’t fit!!

    I vote masage instead – with alll the stress we’re going to need it.
