@JRL2012: I am super pale and tried to use a spray tan but it did rub off on  my clothes.  I heard great things about St Tropez mousse so I tried that.  It didn’t patch and didn’t come off on my super white wedding dress.  It was a hot day when we got married and I was sweating quite a bit but not one bit rubbed off.  I only applied two light coats over two days and it looked very natural – no smell either. Hope that helps.

You might want to consider going to a tanning bed.  I know even if I put sunblock on I will burn  if I’m in a sunny area and haven’t had any exposure to sun yet.  A few trips to the tanning bed before I go helps that, and gives me a little color.  Also you might want to try the “double dip”, where you go to a regular bed and then a spray tan.  I’ve never had a problem with the  spray on rubbing off, but I haven’t had much luck with the at home methods.

Good luck!

I really like the St. Moriz mousse.  It’s the generic (cheaper) version of the St. Tropez brand, but it works so great.  I apply at night before bed and then wash any remaining product off my skin in the shower in the morning. 

Just thought I should mention that I have an olive skin tone.

I highly recommend getting a professional airbrush tan (where a technician sprays you, not a machine). I do not tan at all, but I was going to jamaica and wanted to look sun-kissed. It looked perfectly natural, did not come off on any of my clothing and it lasted 2 weeks! It cost about $60 and it was completely worth it.

@MapleMoose: I tried this once but with being so pale it made me super dark (I looked REALLY tanned).  Gutted as it is so much cheaper than St Tropez.

@JRL2012: You can buy St Tropez mousse absolutely anywhere.  The bottle is plain white with St Tropex written in black on it (very basic looking).  I did A LOT of research on this before I even bought my first bottle in advance of the wedding.  I still wear it now as I like a sutble glow 🙂  Expensive but worth it and the bottle lasts you 6 months. Forgot to mention that it’s the Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse you’re looking for 🙂  Love the stuff.

I used L’Oreal Sublime Bronze. Looks like brown jiz going on but it works great and isn’t stinky.

@JRL2012: Let me know how you get on with it.  I bought the huge bottle right before my wedding in August and I apply it once a week – it’s not even a quarter empty!

Get a proffesional spray tan the day before or 2 days before your wedding, get a trial done a few weeks before.

You generally leave the tan on for 8 hours then shower, this will stp it gettin on your clothes. 

then buy a bottle of st Tropez mouse to take on your hols to keep the colour going, 

I had a spray tan and none went on my dress, (actually i get them all the time) and this is how it looked.

I got an airbrush tan before the wedding. It looked SUPER natural, and not too dark. I did get really sweat at one point during the reception, and the inside of my dress is now sort of tinted bronze…but whatevs, it didnt run or anything on my skin.
