For the brides who wish to be a little darker and to prevent burning before the big day, when are you going to start tanning? How often? Anyone have any secrets are awesome lotions?

I also want to know this! I'm totally against the tanning bed, but I really don't think going just before the wedding is too bad. I currently am a spray tanner but I def do not want to spray tan for the wedding! Meghan, originally I was thinking a month prior to the wedding, but now I'm thinking 2 months prior and going like every 2-3 days. What do you think?

I am VERY fair skinned and I started tanning 6 weeks before just so I wont burn while in Mexico. I go about twice a week and have been seeing results. Definately find a salon that has good beds and that change their bulbs!

Just so you ladies know even with a base tan you can still burn! It never seems to fail that every time that i go on vacation even with pre tanning a month or so in advance I will bun my face... I am thinking big hats!!!

 

As for lotion go for tsomething that smells great, there are bronzers that are good but with the cooling lotion they tingle and feel really strange!

Shannon, I too spray tan and am against bed tanning, but as anyone who spray tans knows it really only looks good the first couple of days and extended time in pools and ocean make it fade quicker and uneven. I fly into Mexico on a Monday and my wedding is on Friday so that's out. I really have only done tanning beds once or twice so I'm clueless? I think two months out might be a good idea as I would like to be tan for my bachelorette party as well. But really I have no idea...

Also with my wedding five days after we arrive, I'm worried my wedding party will be nice and sun burned for our photos. Especially stuborn groomsmen. I can hear it now "I don't need sunblock, I never burn..."

I bought mine from sally's beauty for $15 and its working great!
I didn't know Sally's sold tanning lotion! That's great to know. Tanning lotions are crazy expensive! I've looked online & there seems to be all these warnings about purchasing lotion online. I'll def check out Sally's. I agree Meghan! I love my spray tan but your so right about it only looking the best the first few days. Especially with the pool & ocean! It'll wear off well before the wedding!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
