I am getting closer (5 weeks) and I just had the same freak out!! I don’t have any info for you on timing.


Spray tans that I have looked into say you should do one week before and then again a few days before.


Get your nails done the day before and get Gel or shellac and then they will last for a month.

Good luck and congrats!

@Tasji23:  EEK! How exciting! If you’re getting a spray tan that developes over a few days, I would get it on… Hrmmm… Wednesday morning? They say you shouldn’t shower for 24hrs after you get one. So atleast that way you can shower before your rehearsal on Thursday, but still look all tanned and lovely!!

As for your nails, I agree with RabbitBride, get it done the day before if possible.

Annnnd, when to be ready? It depends, are you doing a first look? You could copy my day of timeline if you want? Since we’re getting married at about the same time.

Also, I’m not even engaged yet – but I’m super organized, if you steal my timeline, let me know how it works out for you, yeah? 😛

Just ask around, for the spray tan and nails I’m sure you won’t be their first bride so they can give you some input.

Same with the photographers, they are experienced enough to know how things usually go.

I have awhile until I’m married but as I’ve booked vendors I’ve found that they are much more involved than I thought they would be. They have seen what works and what doesn’t.

I hope that helps!

I am also getting married on Saturday. My Maid/Matron of Honor and I have planned a spa date for Wednesday night to get pedicures and manicures. I am getting a spray tan on Thursday. Our ceremony is at 2:30 but it is about 7 minutes from where we are getting ready so I will probably put my dress on about 2-2:05 so it doesn’t get dirty.

Good luck! I’m sure everything will be awesome!
