I wouldn’t do it, I’ve done spray tans before and they can be uneven and if you sweat it can come off on your clothes…and since you’re wearing white I personally wouldn’t chance it!

I wouldn’t do it…but if you think you really want to, I would test it out weeks before the wedding to make sure it has the effect you want

I just got a spray tan recently to test it out and see if I wanted to do it for the wedding and I loved it! It looked so natural and gave me the perfect “glow”. I went to a sunless spray tanning salon where a certified trained employee hand airbrushed the spray tan on, I think that is the only way to go. The automatic machine ones can make you look like an orange zebra. Definitely test it out at least 2-3 weeks before the big day! Also it needs time to settle so if your wedding is on a Saturday they suggest you get the spray tan done on a Thursday.

Definitely do the airbrush by a trained technician and not a booth. I tested airbrush last week and it is 1000 times better than the booth kind I’ve done before. I got a groupon for a few sessions– if you can find one, it’s a good way to try it out!

I think a spray tan is a wonderful option to get a nice and even glow. Although I am Latina and African American, I spray all the time to keep a year round even color. Before my big day I will definitely be treating myself to an airbrushed tan.

I got a “magic tan” yesterday (the booth type of tan), and my wedding is tomorrow.  Although I am a little darker than I had hoped, I am pretty pleased with the results.  I got the lightest shade they offer, and it darkened me 2 shades I would say.  I didn’t have any streaking, luckily!  My hands are slightly tinted, but I have heard you can use a lemon slice to get rid of some of that.
