ive seen plenty.  I saw one at our country club where the brides hair was WHITE WHITE blonde, she had ginormous fakies with a low cut dress, and she was about that shade of Lindsey Lohan Orange…maybe worse.  She looked terrible (although she though she was gorgeous)

I am tanning for this wedding, but I ask people all teh time if Im looking orange, and I photograph myself to be sure.  Im not Smile I intend to keep it that way lol.

I did see some orange brides from self tanner too though.  Yeeps.

Yuck! You see those people ALL THE TIME in LA. Their skin in the consistency of aleather handbag!

I wasn’t tanorexic. But the week before the wedding I went ot a BBQ and wore my bathsuit top around. I thought sunscreen would protect me but sure enough I had an obvious tan line in my strapless dress!

I’ve seen a few women here, that’s way obvious. I’ll stick to my natural glow, thanks. = )

I’m whatever the opposite of tanorexic is. I have dark, dark, dark hair, dark blue eyes, hugenormous lips, and the fairest pinky-blue skin on the planet. I hate it, but my fiance loves it. He says it looks like snow white. I guess growing up in the south you’re engrained with BE BLONDE AND TAN, K?

I have a cousin who is quite the tanorexic.  At my wedding, my aunt was joking that I shouldn’t hug her, lest some of the orange rub off on me!

Oh the orange look BLEGH. You can be tan without being freaky! I always feel weird coming back from vacation, like i’m too dark or weird looking

I agree about Kate Gosselin – she is verging on tanorexic! 

Alas, I am super pale and used to tan all the time in high school (it barely even worked) but I stopped a few years ago and have tried to embrace the paleness 🙂

If I’m already fairly tan and I spray tan, will it turn me orange? I want to spray tan for my wedding but I am worried I’ll look too tan or orangey. Anyone have experience with Mystic Spray Tans??

I’m a reformed tanoexic.  I used to lay out for 5 hours at my apartment pool and THEN go to the tanner.  My roommates had an intervention with me that summer.  I gave up tanning over two years ago when I met my FI.  Now I am an avid user of sunless tanning products and spray tanning.

My fave spray tan is Tan Envy in home (http://www.tanenvy.com) or California tan airbrushing (done in a salon).  The MyMyst by Mystic is just ok. I have to say that I am not a big fan of the jergens gradual tanning lotion.  They color is too light for my taste and it smells weird.  Au Courant is another one that I really like.  Not cheap, but a great product.

I did hear that Lindsay Lohan has a self tanner on the market which can be purchased at Sephora.

LOL, I think after seeing those pictures of her,  I’ll be steering clear of her tanning line!

I use Fake Bake mostly. I’m naturally pretty pale so it works pretty well but I just wanted to be a teensy bit darker for Vegas this weekend. I’m not sure if I’ll spray tan or not.

I saw some girls in Hawaii that looked like that.  Up close, their skin was so leathery!  I was so grossed out.
