Your wedding day is perhaps one of the biggest days in your life and may be one of the most photographed moments in your life.  It is no wonder you want to look your absolute best. In addition to getting their bodies into tiptop shape to look their absolute best in that wedding dress, brides often want that perfect, healthy tanned skin. Many brides will be getting married in just a few short months, so there is no time like the present to start working on those aspirations.

For brides opting for spray tans, it is always advisable, make that strongly encouraged, to schedule a trial spray tan run. Doing so allows you to know the exact formula to use when the big day comes around. A trial run should be scheduled at a minimum of three weeks (we prefer a month) before the official spray tan is to be done. This lead-time will allow the trial tan to be worn off entirely before the real, big day spray tan. We love to hear feedback from our clients as to what she loved or didn’t love about the tan.

When the spray tan for the event is booked, it is important to time other appointments accordingly. For example, lash extensions, waxes and facials should all be done at a minimum 48 hours before the final spray tan. If you are planning on a pampering session of a message, you will need to do this before the final spray tan. Oils used in these services can act as a barrier, keeping the spray tan solution from adequately penetrating the skin. You certainly don’t want to get the massage after the spray tan as the oil and rubbing will cause your spray tan to wear off too soon and become splotchy. Keep yourself covered when getting your hair done as well. You don’t want to take any chances on getting some of the hair products on your skin as many of them contain alcohol and other chemicals.

The final spray tan event should take place two days before the wedding day. This timeframe allows the tan to fully develop, leaving you with healthy and glowing skin. Spray tans done after two days run the risk of rubbing off onto that beautiful wedding dress.
