I'm new, planning a wedding at the Barcelo in the Mayan February 2013. Just trying to catch up on all 200 pages of this thread, when I noticed a question about spray tans. So, I am the whitest of white. I have tried EVERYTHING to get/be tanned. After trying about 20 different products (not exaggerating)...my favourite is Sally Hansen - 'Flawless Legs', comes in a can, you can get up to 6 different shades at Wal-Mart, Superstore or any drug store. Pretty expensive (at least for me!), up to $18 a pop. I usually buy a pack of three on e-bay for half the price. It lasts about 2-3 showers, does not make you orange and has a shimmery look to it. It does come off slightly on clothes, but washes right out. Also very messy, I stand on paper towels. I know it sounds like a lot of work, and it is...but its worth it. I also use it on my whole body, not just legs.
I have recently gone for a spray tan in a stand up bed at Tan FX (Winnipeg) and its fantastic, as long as you know how to stand. The girl will demonstrate but do it once before your wedding so you see you have to bend your knees so you don't get half moons under your butt cheeks, and raise your arms high so you get sprayed under your 'chest area'! Hehe I bought a groupon recently, two spray tans for $30, regularly $35 each spray. I have seen this offered twice now.
Hope that helps!
Are any of you ladies getting a spray tan before you head down south? I would go tanning but I really don't want it. Anybody had experience with spray tans? All I can think about with spray tans is Ross from Friends getting the spray tan and who orange he looked. Lol!!
