I got a spray tan for the engagement pics and will indulge just this once on some tanning bed sessions before we leave. Donâ€™t want to be pasty or charred red for the big day!

DO NOT use a tanning bed! The immediate results are nice but they cause sun damage and premature skin aging (wrinkles, dark spots, sagging)!!! Not to mention skin cancer!!
Find a self tanner or spray tanner that you like...there a million options out there that you don't need to be permanently harming yourself!

My first job was at a tanning salon and I would definitely recommend to go tanning before the wedding. A lot of tanning salons will even offer you a package for your bridesmaids also!!! Start out sloooow in the tanning max 5 minutes to start and work your way up. I would really say to go in a bed or a booth about 10 - 12 times and then add in at least 2 or 3 ultra bronze sessions before you leave for your trip!!

There are tanning beds with 99% bronzing rays and 1% burning rays so rarely anybody burns in them. Ultra bronzers you should checkout your local tanning salons and see what they offer...

I will be using a tanning bed, I don't burn easily but I still won't be leaving anything to chance!! I'll get a nice tan at home and won't have to worry about tan lines for my wedding. Might even encourage my FI to tan a bit before we go too!

I will definately be tanning before we leave, if I don't I know I will look like a lobster on my wedding day, which is what I don't want. Its probably going to take me a few months to get an optimal tan though, as I burn easily!

I burn so easily, so I have to tan a bit before we go and get a nice base tan. The rest of the trip I'll likely use SPF 50! lol

I've done the spray tan before too and loved the results. I wasn't swimming afterwards though. My sister said that if I do the spray tan before the wedding, it would come off and look weird when I get my pedicure! Will it scrub off? This could be bad!
