Tan if thats what you want. My FI likes me pasty as well.. but I feel better tanned, and I blush really easily so the tan will help me look less red while I walk down the aisle.

Tan away!

have you tanned before?  i think that as long as its subtle, he prob wont even notice the difference – just don’t hit “snookie” levels, thats where the bad stuff happens 😉

i would try it out for the shower and stuff and see what he thinks – odds are you wont look as “different” as he thinks

Has he seen you after you’ve gotten a tan before?  The first time I mentioned getting a tan to my FI he freaked out thinking that I would turn out orange or something.  Since your wedding is still 3 months away, I would do a tester tan and see if he likes it.

Second the question if he has seen you tan before.  I know my FI thinks it is ‘ridiculous’ that I spend money getting tan… but hey, I look thinner and feel better with some color.

I agree that 1 mystic won’t make that much of a difference- you’ll still look like you. I feel thinner when I’m tan so I’m doing it, plus I think it’ll look great with my dress.

Personally, I hate spray tans. Have you done it before? Because I definitely would not do a test run before such imporant events.

Also, I was at a wedding last weekend where it was so painfully obvious that the bride had spray tanned. Honestly, it looked BAD. She was super tanned at a time of year when nobody else is and standing next to her husband she looked orange. So, if you do try the tanned look just be careful – you don’t want to look like a martian next to your FI in pictures that will last a lifetime.

@napabridekelsey:  yea, i think the “radiant” look is good – and will give you the glow youre looking for, but not the orange that hes worried about

@napabridekelsey: If your wedding is in August why don’t you just work on a gradual natural tan? Then you can definitely avoid drip marks (ugh, just saying that reminds me why I don’t like spray tans – sorry! I’m probably biased on this one!)or whatever else.

i’m pretty pale – but i tan well, i just lose it really quickly.i like my pale skin but i always feel thinner and just all around better with a little glow and for me thats enough to make me want to do it.

@napabridekelsey: Getting a natural tan is just as unsafe as laying in a tanning bed. Get yourself a spray tan before the honeymoon as a test run, and if you like it go again before the wedding.
