In a survey of community members currently planning a wedding**, it was uncovered that half of nearly-weds (49 per cent) would rather go to the spa with their friends as this would be more fun for them, than if they went with their partners (43 per cent), or by themselves (eight per cent).

Additionally, more than half (54 per cent) of respondents also said that they would be happy to have their hen or sten party at a spa, with more than a third saying they prefer to spend the night when they go to the spa, to make use of all the experiences on offer.

While at the spa, nearly-weds most look forward to treating themselves to a pamper, with 28 per cent opting for relaxing treatments, with 24 per cent prefering to relax by the pool.
