Did you REALLY stay out of the sun?

I also tried to avoid the sun (it was really hot!) by using the umbrellas by the pool or just hanging in the shade. Wedding day I was barely outside at all until the ceremony.
I came home with a nice tan despite wearing 50 each day.

The day before the wedding we are going to the ruins at Coba & snorkeling in a cenote. I will need to slather on the suncreen for that trip.
last time I was in cancun I got an amazing tan. The best I've ever had. I'm hoping instead of burning I tan. I think as long as you are really careful & know what kind of protection your skin needs you can still participate in all the fun stuff before the wedding.
My dress has straps, but is really low cut. So as I pick out tank tops & stuff to wear the days before I keep my dress in mind. But, that means everything I wear will be really low cut. I even got a swimsuit coverup dress with a plunging neckline.
The only thing I didn't find was a swimsuit with straps that do not tie around my neck. I wanted one that had straps like a bra. I was surprised they were hard to find. So I'll need to be careful with my swimsuit. I'll only wear the tops with thin straps before the wedding because those dont give me tanlines as long as I move the straps enough.

Be sure to moisturize everyday after being in the sun so you don't peel. I also like the Jergens or Neutrogena tinted lotions to blend lines if you do get them.

I was crazy about making my husband wear sunscreen! I did not want him to get fried and ruin the pics either!

My backup plan was to go strapless on everything, however at my final fitting I realized my back was lower than anything strapless so the bandeu tops I bought arent going to work anyway if I do get lines lol!
Also, the shade at the pool bar - HA "shade" - will be my new BFF!
