So, this is November and my wedding is in April, and I have some very noticeable tan lines on my shoulders and back which will be visible in my dress.
Friends told me to wear a tube top and try to let the sun even it out, but I live in GA and it’s cold here and usually doesn’t warm up until April. I’ve considered getting a spray tan (and have had one before) but I’m a natural redhead & am usually very fair.
I picked out my dress in August and figured they would fade since it’s no longer summer but they have yet to do that.

If you very carefully use cosmetic bleach (the kind used for facial hair), you may be able to “blend” your tan lines. Worked for a friend of mine. But her tan wasn’t very deep.
Otherwise, spray tan — no tanning booth please!

Girl. Your skin regenerates waaaay faster than you think. Any sort of tan you have right now, even if it sees not one more ray of sun for the next 6 months, is not going to exist by then. If by some miracle you do still see a line in a few months, go to a reputable tanning salon and have them help you design a package to work with your skin tone. It should only take a few weeks for your fair skin to develop a modest base, and for any lines to be blended in completely.
I used to work in the tanning industry, and I just wanted to assure you that you don’t have anything to worry about!
