I’m pretty pale and pastey. I didn’t do tanning (beds or lotions) but I did wear tube tops all summer to avoid tan lines. You can see that I still have a faint bit of tan lines left over from the summer before, but I don’t think it looks too obvious.

Aww thanks! I don’t really tan easily. I’m a mix of German, Italian and Scottish, so honestly it just depends what nationality my skin feels like being. Some summers I tan like crazy (my Italian years) and other years I just stay WHITE and pastey, I guess when I’m being German/Scottish! LOL! Personally, I like being on the pale side, it makes my eyes pop more. I also dye my hair darker than my natural colour to accentuate my paleness a bit more. Plus taking good care of your skin and avoiding tanning is better for your skin, less wrinkles down the road!

Just as another thought, if you wanted to add a bit of colour to your skin, maybe try wearing a pink or red bolero since the colour will reflect up. I wore a red one, although not for that reason, I just liked it 😉

I’m the epitome of pale! I didn’t tan before engagement photos beyond the sun I got naturally walking the dog, etc.

Yay for pale girls! We rock! LOL!

@mandb122: Perfect! You’re going to look gorgeous! Don’t you worry about whether or not you’re any darker. Think of it this way, if you fake tanned before, you’d look at the photos later and wonder why in the world you did it because it looks nothing like you normally do. You’re going to be stunning!

@mandb122: thank you! I adore bakerella’s photos as well, the red looks amazing. I adore when brides embrace really vibrant color. 

I think some of the most gorgeous women are fair skinned. Look at Marion Cotillard – she’s old style beautiful, and has that alabaster skin.

I’m super pale too, I’m a teeny bit sad that it didn’t work so well in photos, but I was true to the ghostly self I am.

I am super pale too and decided in high school that I wasn’t going to worry about it ever again, and I haven’t.

I don’t like lotions because to me, they always come out looking very orange, and that’s probably one of the last things you want on your wedding day. I would say, go without tanning lotions or regular tanning, because you want to look like yourself at your wedding and not like an umpaloompa. Hehe. I’m sure you’ll look beautiful in all your pale glory! That’s what I’m hoping for, at least. 🙂
