I am thinking about doing a spray tanning for my wedding but I am seriously worried about it staining my dress, specially int he arm pit area…
Are you considering doing it? Do you about bad experiences or good ones????

don’t do it right before, and do a trial- now. One of my coworkers had a horrible spray-tan experience (did “light” and ended up SUPER dark), so if you haven’t done it before, give yourself some time to try it out.

If you do it about two days before, you shouldn’t have any problems with it transferring to your clothes or dress. The reason I’m not getting one for my wedding is because they dont seem to fade nicely for me- I get big splotches of paler skin after about 5 days, and that isn’t a cute look for the honeymoon! I have heard really good things about the more expensive airbrush ones though. Like PP said, try them out first! Good luck!

A bridesmaid did it at the lat wedding I was in…the wedding was in August and it was kind of hot, and we were all sweating a little. By the end of her night, half of the tan rubbed off on her dress, and sometimes, the dress would move out of place, and you could see the “tan lines” where it had all wiped off.

I would definitely recommend doing a trial run and using the “clear” spray opposed to the “bonzer” spray. I would also recommend getting it done the morning on the day before your wedding to give it time to set. I didn’t have any trouble with it rubbing off onto my dress.

Do a trial run. Look for a salon that actually airbrushes you and doesn’t just stick you in a booth. I always recommend doing it 2-3 days prior. You don’t shower for the first 12 hours of the tan. Also, if any salons near you use Norvell, I have NEVER seen anyone come out orange from it and they can really customize your color. One of my girlfriends is extremely fair with freckles and a nautral redhead and even SHE didn’t have a LiLo experience with it. She had just a nice bronzed glow.

Yes, be careful with the btand you use. I have this friend that did it before a wedding (she was a bridesmaid) and she looked like a carrot! She was trying to rub it off and got even worse because she was all patchy! Do a trial run, I think that way you can tell if it is going to work for your skin type!

I did one for my wedding – I had it airbrushed on at a Neiman Marcus salon. They use Norvelle, which I have found to be the best brand. I got married on a Friday and went and had it done on the Wednesday before. A tiny bit rubbed off on the inside of my Rehearsal Dinner dress, but it wasn’t a big deal. I didn’t notice any on my wedding dress when I took it off!

Like some of the other bees said, I’d DEFINITELY have an actual person airbrush tan you, rather than going in a booth. I know some people have great results from booths, but I personally wouldn’t risk it when it comes to your wedding! So not worth having streaks on your wedding day. Good luck!

And don’t get it done the day of! 2 days before is ideal (used to work at a tanning salon 🙂

I would definitely do a trial and then wear a white shirt.
I spray tanned (am naturally very fair) and looked absolutely orange even though I chose the lightest colour. Also, once it started to wear off it looked very splotchy and patchy, so I would be worried about looking like that on my honeymoon.
