Spray Tan & Wedding Dress


Im not getting maried until next september but I want to have a healthy glow, I used to use sun beds but Ive been put off for life to be honest. Ive had a spray tan before but cant really remember if I ruined any of my clothes becuase I usually wear dark clothes...

However my wedding dress is ivory and to me was expensive at just short of a grand so although i will never wear it again I obviously dont want to ruin it but I do want to looked tanned with a healthy glow on my wedding day...

So what are your thoughts... will it ruin my dress and when am i best getting it done. I think last time I had it done it lasted about 2 weeks but when it starts to wear off it makes you look a tad mucky really so obviously dont want to look mucky or streaky.

If only we had decent hot summers, unlike the wash out it was this year

any advice would be muchly appreciated

I've never had one done but if you'd like to get it again I would think maybe a week before the wedding would be a good time? That way it has some time to settle into your skin but won't be washing off yet. Congrats

definately have a couple of trial runs beforehand, so you can get the right colour. We normally say come in 2 days before the day you need your tan for, then you've got 2 days for it to wear in and get rid of any excess bronzers that may still be on your skin and you can iron out any problems that you may have.

if anywhere near you uses xen tan i would maybe go for that one, it has an olive undertone so develops into a lovely more realistic tan.

hope that helps. x

I guess if you really do not want it to come off you could go to a tanning bed. I do not think just a few trips will do much damage. I mean if the dress is that expensive.

I recently used a tanning lotion and was orange as a pumpkin! so do get a base tan first if possible
