Nope, going to a tanning bed salon. I wanted my tan to last longer. I know, I know… skin cancer risk. But I’m in Alaska, we don’t get to naturally tan here. And spray tans are expensive and too orangy looking πŸ™

I guess December counts as “winter,” right? πŸ˜‰ I rocked my pale white skin. No spray or bed tan for this girl!

i prefer the real tanning bed…spare lecturing me on the risks, please. i’ve had the mystic tan (where a machine sprays you) and I’ve had the airbrush tan (where an actual person sprays you) and I would prefer the machine over the person…when I had the airbrush done i hated it and scrubbed as much off as I could the next morning.

I prefer to tan in a bed at least 2-3 times a week and use the jergens fake tan that comes in a can and comes out as a foam. i swear by that stuff. So, tan a fews days a week and use the jergens a few days a week and i love the color I have πŸ™‚

I am going to spray tan. Otherwise you’d be able to see through my skin. Yuck. I want to see a contrast between my skin and my dress πŸ™‚

I’ve done every self tanner and spray tan known to man.  I discovered Tan Envy….amazing. Doesn’t rub off & always looks natural. I did a light spray for my November wedding.

i don’t think i’m going to do it. i’m too afraid it might rub off on my dress. i really wanted it for our tropical honeymoon but oh well…my fiance and i can be the palest people in honduras for all i care..

LOL I never get a tan at the best of times so it would look incredibly strange on me. Plus I’m unabashedly in love with my pale skin…I get a fair amount of compliments about my complexion.

Nope… being African American, that is one additional expense I can pass on Smile

My bridesmaids however (all white) are starting to tan these days in prep for 1-1-11!

Luckily I am fairly tan naturally, so in the next two weeks, I will start to tan 2-3 times a week.

I’m planning to start tanning for my Feb wedding within the next week or so.  I definitely feel better with a bit of color.
