not me. i have been tanning for 3 weeks now and leave in another 3 weeks, so i should be pretty good to go by then (i start out pretty fair, as you can tell from my pics!) if i still need some extra color before going, i'd feel more comfortable doing an ultrabronze session or two than risk the spray tan. i know they can be done well, but i've never done it and i'd be the lucky one to turn out orange. i'm having orange at my wedding, but i'm definitely not planning to match my decor!

i've heard good things about spray tans - if you get them done at a reputable place. i think it's one of those instances where you definitely get what you pay for. let me know if you end up doing it - i'd love to hear how it goes!

Lady Di, I had a friend that got a spray tan for something (I can't recall what) but 2 or 3 days afterwards it became very streaky. I would definitely ask the company you go to how it will hold up with chlorine & salt water.
JT I wish I could do that but I would look like a lobster if I put oil on, ha!
I wish I would have gone to the tanning bed but I ran out of time and next week I am out of town for work all week.

I've done Mystic tan and the airbrush tan where someone sprays you by hand (done for my BD pix) and it turned out great. I don't know if it would last in Mexico though. My plan to stay extra goldeny is to buy some tanning lotion. I've tried SO many tanning lotions and my favorite non-steak, non-orange one is the Jergen's from the grocery store, no joke. It's amazing and like $8.
So there's my tan plan, LOL!
Diane - that's so awesome!! I'm gonna go check out your dress...

I have had success with spray tanning, sticking to the key points above. I am very fair..that is a nicer way of saying, pale. I have decided due to time, stress, graduate school and my full-time job not to tan. I am blond, blue eyed and fair, that's me naturally. I have decided to spend extra money on some MAC make up. I want my blue eyes to pop. I just got a hair conditioning treatment that my stylist said will help the camera catch the light on my hair and look great. I am also resigned to the fact, I don't think my natural look is that bad. If you are nervous about being streaky, just go natural and feel great. If you feel great, you will look great! The camera will pick up on confidence.
I wish all the May 2010 brides good luck with tanning, make up, hair, etc. I just realized I will be leaving for Italy in a little over a week. I am so excited!
