Spray Tan in Cancun???

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

 

Being a very fair skinned gal Im trying to figure out how to give my body a nice glow before stepping into that white dress. Problem is I dont want to tan in the states before going down, as it will be mostly faded by the time the wedding comes around (not to mention Id have to avoid the sand/pool). Has anyone heard of any airbrush/spray tan facilities in the cancun area either in a hotel or something easy??? Anyone ever used a company down there???

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!

I don't know about Cancun salons, but I did manage a tanning salon for 4 years so I know a little about spray tans.  How many days are you going to be in Cancun before your wedding?  A spray tan normally lasts about 7-10 days depending on how dry your skin is (the drier your skin the longer it lasts).  You also do NOT have to avoid the pool/ sand.  You can swim with a spray tan.  But obviously, it will fade faster than if you were not swimming. I recommend looking into somewhere that either uses a Norvell spray tan solution or has the Versaspa booth system.  Those systems give you a more natural bronze glow instead of a orangeish glow that the Mystic tan can give.  If you are only going to be in Cancun a couple of days before the wedding, I recommend doing it at home the day before you leave and making you "extra" dark so you still have great color when you get married.

 

I hope this helps a bit! :)

Also- staying moisturized and hydrated after your spray tan will help prolong the color as well! :)

I read on a photographers website NOT to use spray tan's for your wedding.  It said it makes your skin look's orange in your photo's.  So if you are going to, try it at home first and be sure that you are comfortable with the way you look in the next day's.  Don't try anything right before the wedding!  Good luck!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
