Tanning...

Recommended Posts

Our wedding is in May. We both plan on getting just a base or glow before we go. I am going to start in mid March and go twice a week...just for some color. In April I'll go get some new make up so it all matches. I have to be careful b/c I am fair, but I don't want to get burned and be red on my wedding day. My fiance has great olive skin, it takes 5 minutes for him to look great... so jealous. Anyway, I read on here that other said don't get too tan. I have heard that before, just get a base so your pictures turn out well.

I started my tanning March 1, and after only 2 sessions I'm already tanned! My wedding is mid May. It's crazy, I have a feeling that I am going to end up wasting a lot of money since I paid for a month unlimited. Their beds are crazy powerful compared to what I've used before.

Hi fellow Winnipeg-ger- wow that's crazy, do you tan easily?? I don't usually...I'm thinking of starting in April (leaving at the end of May), where do you go? I am thinking of TanFx cause there is one right by me...

Hi. I do tan pretty easily but I didn't think it would be that quick! I bought a month unlimited at Lava Suntan Studio. The beds are great. I use the stand up there and seriously, it was awesome. I've used other stand ups before but nothing compared to this one. I also considered TanFX b/c the prices were more competitive and it's also not to far from home but Lava had a little more of a relaxed environment. I have to tell you though, the type of lotion you use makes a HUGE difference. And this time I used a bronzer which really sped things up! I have a makeup appointment in a month, so hopefully I will be as tanned as will be on our trip. Good luck.

I always go tanning whenever I go some place where I will be in a lot of sun since I'm always afraid to burn. Plus, when your away you don't want to have sunburn and be uncomfortable the whole time.

I have very white and freckled skin so im considering tanning options other than the tanning beds. I tried the tanning spray booth once but after a couple of days the color started fading uneven : (

My wedding is in December so i'm gonna start trying different self tanning lotions, Christa, thank you for the Neutragena recommendation :)

We're going tanning too. We always go to get a base tan so that an afternoon spent in the water with not enough sunscreen applications doesn't end up in pain for days. I'm less concerned with getting the tan "glow" so much, more I just want to have some flexibility to not have to constantly be slathering sunscreen on every hour. :)

I just bought unlimited tanning for a month at the closest tanning place.

I'm so burnt after one time.

Exactly why I have to tan. I'm so pasty and freckly if I don't pre tan I will be a lobster in the DR! haha

I went for 15 in a lay down bed. I know it was WAY too long.

Just my back side is really burnt. The front is burnt but not that bad.

I will go alot less next time for sure.

 

Thanks for the advice : )

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
