    I’m going to have someone spray tan me.  There is a place where I live where she has you undress and sprays you with her tanning formula then rubs it in to make sure there isn’t any streaking etc…she also will shade it so that your stomach looks smaller/thinner.  She’ll customize the color as well so I will probably go a month prior, get a lighter color, then a few weeks later get double dipped so I’m nice and tan.  I used to do tanning beds years and years ago and it’s just so bad for you and I started noticing the women that would go in and how OLD they looked, so I stopped that.  I’ve never tried the spray tan booth but my sister has and she felt like an Ooompa Looompa when she came out.

    I’m too white for faux tan. It all just looks orange and artificial on me. :p

    I can often tell when people do a spray tan! Especially here in Canada because we don’t normally get THAT dark in the summer so I will do it in a bed to prevent tan lines!

    Another thing to worry about with spray-tan is that this is dye, and it’s dying your upper level skin cells. Well, problem is that if you sweat, a lot of times, the dye in said skin comes out with the sweat, so you get orange rings and stuff on your clothes! I would NOT want that with a white wedding dress. When I used to use it (and looked like a fool), I ruined so many pretty white dresses/shirts/etc.

    I don’t tan-tan (either tanning booths OR at the beach), and I didn’t want TOO much color.  I used a subtle self-tanner (the Olay Touch of Sun) for the week leading up to the wedding.  I stopped using it a day or two before and exfoliated, so that I had a little bit of color, but nothing too drastic.

    I’m actually doing both the bed and spray tan. I don’t use the bronzer option in the spray tan. I’m doing both cause the beds can dehyrdate your skin and I don’t want that! But I won’t spray or bed 2-3 days before the wedding. So I can even everything out and not look too fake.

    Yay for being Asian and perpetually being tan. The weird part is that I am constantly staying out of the sun to try to be as fair as possible! lol.

    NEVER use a tanning bed.  That is how to get cancer in a box.

    Spray tans look fake.  Don’t like them.

    Bronzing lotions give the best effect.  I won’t apply it the few days before the wedding so there won’t be a chance of getting it on my dress.  (Thanks for the tip, fiftyfootbride!)

    I’m too scared that I’ll turn orange with a spray tan so I’m using a tanning bed. I work at a tanning salon, so I get it free… might as well use it for my wedding.

    I do spray tan sometimes … I also go in the standup sometimes … but I will say to you this: I do not plan to do spray tan before my wedding. It can become uneven .. and there’s nothing you can really do. I’ve tried it all.

    The only sure way to get a tan with no streaks is to go in the bed. Which could cause you burning, peeling, sun spots and blotchy skin.

    I fake baked for my wedding only.  Then we went on our honeymoon and I started using the SPF 50 again – now I’m all tan lined again 😛
