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

How long did you go for Holly?? If your skin is that fair, you should have gone less than 5 min. I go 3-4 min when I first start tanning.

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, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
