ive been going back and forth on something lately. I wasn’t planning on getting a spray tan.. BC I’ll be mostly covered, but now it’s getting closer and I’m wondering if maybe I should.
im no stranger to them, ive gotten them a few times before. I ger sprayed by someone not a machine. And they’ve always turned out great. I’m wondering if I should just to add a little color.
Tanning beds aren’t rent an option BC I am fair skinned and don’t build a tan up I only burn.
Im mostly worried about it rubbing off, for reference my legs are basically like Casper, and I think about that with the garter toss and stuff.
Here is my dress:
Did you spray? How did it turn out? Did you regret it? Did you regret not spraying?

I had a spray tan for my wedding and it did add a nice bit of color on my very pale skin. Otherwise I was swallowed up by the ivory of the dress and I just looked super washed out. I also bruise really easily and had some bruising on my arms from some medical blood draws a couple weeks prior to my wedding so I was glad I had the tan to cover that up.

I did one for my bachelorette party (airbrush by a person, not a machine) as a test for my wedding. I wore a white dress and it was nice to have some color and it didn’t rub off. You don’t have to worry about it rubbing off once you shower off the solution because at that point it has basically dyed your skin. I loved the place I went, they use an organic tanning solution that doesn’t turn you orange and I had no streaks or white spots. I’m going again this week for my wedding this weekend and it’ll be nice to have a glow since I haven’t been able to spend as much time outside as I normally do this summer so I’m super pale.
If if you liked them in the past I say go for it!

I did it for my wedding. I also had an airbrush jobby by a person, not a machine. I had a really good person doing it so it came out really natural and didn’t have that orange undertone. Didn’t have too much problems with it rubbing off on anything. A bit under the armpit area, but I only noticed it after when I was taking the dress in to get drycleaned.
However, I didn’t have sleeves, so the question might be better directed at those who had sleeves. Just thought I’d add my two cents in 🙂
In terms of your legs though, I wouldn’t worry about it rubbing off onto your dress that much. If you’ve done it a couple of days before, most of the residual should have washed off, so you shouldn’t have too much, if anything, rubbing off onto the dress.

Thanks so much girls! I’ve never really had an issue of it rubbing off before, but I’ve also never really worn white or Ivory, let alone a complete outfit white or Ivory.
i am glad you all had good expierences. I will message the girl that usually does it and get her thoughts.

I had a St Tropez spray tan for my wedding and it was perfect. I had it done the Thursday night for my Saturday wedding so I had 2 showers in between which prevented too much from rubbing off and also gave me peace of mind in case it was to go wrong!
I don’t know when your wedding is but I had a practice a few weeks before and wore a white top the day after just to see if it rubbed off at all.
Hope that helps!

I definitely recommend it I’m having it done by a person. I had it done prior to my engagement party and loved the color. They can really get it natural looking and conservative for weddings.
