i am very fair skinned and got a spray tan last month (it was not mystic tan or tanning booth…but someone who airbrushes you) and it came out great.

I explained to her I didn’t want to look orange but justa slightly tanner version of myself. I loved it!! I plan on doing it again for the wedding 🙂 good luck

Hi! I hd this exact same problem four days before MY wedding, which is why your post caught my eye 🙂


I used Jergens instant bronzer over the white spots–had my Darling Husband rub it in the lines. Let that set, then after a few hours, apply all over. I have had a spray tan and you can look orangey..its a risk. If you got it TODAY, it would fade enough that if it looks awful, you would look fine. What they told me at the spray tan place was to do a very good scrub and dont sweat or shower for 4 hours after.

Here is my after picture doing the jergens trick-I had 2 diagonal white lines from a tanning bed down my back!!!

i got a spray tan right before my wedding (in a booth). i just told them i wanted it to look natural and not to be orange. and they said no problem they knew exactly what to do. and it turned out great! loved it! and i didn’t look orange at all. id just explain that your getting married and its very important you dont look orange. thats what i did and it worked out great! Good luck!!

ETA: heres a picture… and i got the lightest tan they have 3 days before…

I second having a spray tan done by a professional. Im a HUGE advocate for this– because they’re able to distribute evenly. Also– they’re pretty reasonable priced if you shop around a bit. Since you’ve only 4 days– be careful to not use any tanner in your skin the day before or day of the wedding– even though it is dry, it can still rub off on your dress +clothes. I had my tab done 3 days before the wedding, and it gave it time to wear off a tad and look very natural
