What's the difference between spray tanning and tanning beds? How far in advance should I start? How often does one have to commit to this? Does anyone in Winnipeg have a place to recommend?
Thanks so much for your help!!!

Tanning beds use the UV lamp to actually tan your skin, but some say they are more dangerous than the sun. I burn easily, so I've never used them, but from what I've heard, you need to start short (5 minutes or so - your MOH may need to start out lower than that since she is more fair) and work up to 10-12 minutes at a time. If you burn, take a few days off to heal, and drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated. You would want to start a month or two before leaving for your wedding to be able to build up the tan. I think they tell you to go a few times a week. They'll be able to help you out more at the tanning salon to give you a better schedule.

With that said, spray tanning is healthier but something i've never personally tried. I have used a tanning bed a few times (because I too wanted that base tan so I didn't get burned). I have dark hair but white skin and I started using the tanning bed around 8-10 minutes each time for maybe 3 times a week. Initially I was a bit red but never had any flaking, itching problem - just turned tan within a day or so. Over time, you can increase the amount of time you spend in there. I got up to about 15 minutes. While its more dangerous, I don't see any problem with using a bed just for things like this (would NEVER do it on a regular basis). I'm probably going to start going about a month before the wedding. I want a good base so I don't burn when we get down there but I also don't want to be unnaturally dark. I, personally, don't want the mess of a spray tan. Also, a warm tanning bed is REALLY comfy and relaxing during the winter months! Just my two cents...
