    I got a spray tan for the engagement pics and will indulge just this once on some tanning bed sessions before we leave.  Don’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!
