On the idyllic East African island of Zanzibar, a bride-to-be will spend two weeks preparing for her honeymoon night by way of a daily scrub known as singo. Not just any old scrub, this all-natural concoction is an intoxicating blend of fresh jasmine and ylang ylang flowers, rose petals, mpatchori (a sweet smelling herb native to the Zanzibar archipelago), geranium, sweet basil, sandalwood and rosewater. After two weeks of treatment, her skin feels soft as silk—and smells divine! Although deliciously decadent, Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, codirector of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, DC, suggests that brides with sensitive skin avoid too many exotic ingredients for fear of causing irritation.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
