@KatieMcBride It isn't amazing for your skin to use a tanning bed, but if you are only going to go a few times before your trip I can't see it being a huge deal. I think it's only bad if you're one of those types that is going all the time.
I plan to use a tanning bed prior to the wedding. I want to have a nice even base tan before going. I tend to burn the first day or two usually and then tan after that, so I guess I want to tan before so that I can avoid burning as much when I first get there.
Originally I had thought the same thing as well (about the spray tan), but then I remembered my one experience with it and it wouldn't work very well for a wedding. Spray tans also smell kind of funky as well.
