    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 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!
