I’d find someone else via recommendations of friends. What if she is delayed getting back?  Also that’ll be the last thing I’d think about the night before the wedding.  I don’t know how long they last, but is it too late to get a practice one now from someone before the big day?

x-infinity-x:  it takes a good 24 to reach the full color from a spray tan. When I have an even I want to be extra tan for I go min 3 days before (but I can hold the color for a week)

 

ETA: bonus is you have 4 weeks to do a trial with other people to test out the tan!

x-infinity-x:  I wouldn’t risk it. Its late at night, and she will be tired and may not be up to par. You could look like a pumpkin for your big day. Look for recommendations for somewhere else and get it done a week or two before your wedding, that way in case it is bad it has some time to fade.

I wanted to be tan and have no lines on my big day, but I refuse to fake tan in any form, so for the past three years I have worn only strapless bathing suits in preperation, even before I was engaged (because I knew it was coming!) haha

x-infinity-x:  I would find someone else if the tan is absolutely necessary.  You’d hate for her to mess up 12am hours before your wedding.  Is having a tan a make or break kind of deal?  I think you’d look beautiful without the tan 🙂

x-infinity-x:  I also forgot to mention it’s recommended that you wait 24 hours (until the color has set) before you shower. I don’t know about you but I plan on enjoying a nice hot relaxing shower /bath the morning of to help with the jitters!  

If it’s absolutely necessary to be tan find someone else and do a test run just like hair and make up!!
