    i’ve gotten spray tans before, for my graduation ceremony actually, and no one could tell! I just did a really mild tan, one of the lowest levels, and several people commented to me that i looked glowing and my skin looked so pretty. It just made me look kind of evened out and my skin looked really healthy. I’m thinking I will probably do it for my wedding too. I may go tanning a couple times just to look a little tan naturally, and then go back for a really low level spray tan the day before the wedding to get that glowing look. I loved it

    I did it twice… The first time, I loved it, it was for my bridal portraits 

    Then I did one about a month later before my bridal shower… not so awesome… 

    I’m relatively fair skinned… I had been tanning in a bed for about a month before the first spray, which was “light”. The second one, I stepped up to “medium” and didn’t pay for the added stuff that’s supposed to tone the orange-ness of it.

    I worked in a tanning salon for years – it really depends on your skin type how well it will turn out. I suggest getting one a few months before to try out different types and color levels to figure out what looks best on you.

    I didn’t do any spray tanning or airbrush tanning. Instead, I wore a champagne-colored dress that made me look much tanned than a white or even an ivory dress would have. Part of why I shied away from fake tanning was When I brought it up with my photographers during our engagement pics, they said that it can be hard for make-up artists to match foundation and face makeup to skin that’s been fake tanned. Also, I decided that I wanted to look myself in photos, because I realized that when I look at friends’ wedding photos on Facebook, the ones who aren’t normally tan looked a little odd in the photos. We haven’t gotten back our pro pics yet but from the sneak-peak the photographers sent me, I’m really happy with how natural I look 🙂

    No because I’ve seen one too many that turned badly. I also have a more coppery/yellowy skin tone (my grandma was full blooded Cherokee and I got the skin tone but lighter) so I would just look off color.

    I like spray tans but will not risk it for my wedding – and then it will be wearing off through my honeymoon.

    I’ll be doing traditional tanning for a month or two before my wedding. It isn’t something I would ever do regularly but I am comfortable with the risks doing it for a couple of months. It’s terrible for you but it makes me feel a lot better and my skin look better. I’m not going for a deep tan, just a little bit of color.

    Im totally pro spray tanning for any big events or especially for a wedding. And I def think you should try diff tones before just throwing a spray tan on the day before the big day !!

    I considered it but after research and worrying it would ruin my dress I used Mary Kay self tanner instead it worked using it daily for two weeks before the wedding and did not come off on my dress

    I like the way my skin looks without very much of a tan. I feel this way about most other people’s skin too. I don’t find light skin (or naturally dark skin) unattractive. IMO mother nature knew what she was doing 🙂

    I love spray tans and i did have one for my wedding day however i kept it pretty natural as there’s nothing worse than an overly fake brown/orange tan against a white/ivory dress. A natural glow is what i recommend.

    I haven’t but funny story (kinda) I know a bride who’d did a destination/cruise wedding, and her spray tan bled into her dress.. It was just awful. It looked like her dress had muddy water all though the top of it.. Not good.
