You have over 2 weeks before you leave right? And almost 3 weeks to the big day? I don't think you have anything to stress about. I would say stay out of the sun (real and beds) until all the redness is gone. Do not attempt to tan to even out what you have now. Once the redness calms down use a good exfoliator.
After that take it easy on the sunbeds, do enough to give you a good base and headstart, and you'll be surprised that just a couple of days in Mexico and you'll have an amazing tan.

This morning I went to tan (I don't want to be pale in my dress and I don't want to turn into a lobster before the ceremony) and stepped up the time by just 1 minute. So no problem here - I wasn't burnt, but I wasn't far from it. Well, this afternoon I went to the State Fair and spent about 3 hours outside in the sun. Alone I don't think the fall sun would have burned me, but when added on top of my tanning booth time... So I now have a "farmer's tan" with a v-neck and t-shirt sleeves. Please oh please let me have enough time before Mexico to get rid of these tan lines. Can you imagine a strapless wedding dress with those tan lines?! ugggg.
