Don’t get a tan, ask for a glow.
Too dark of a tan is not always suitable for that glamorous white dress. For weddings, lighter is better. The aim here is that all of your guests will be making comments on how radiant and healthy you look, not how great the fake tan is.
It’s not just for the bride! Consider spray tanning for all members of your wedding party!
If you are going to be tanned it really is worth considering having the whole wedding party spray tanned. Even the groom and groomsmen of your party, with a subtle tan, may make all the difference to your photos. No more pasty groom and a lovely golden bride!
Applying a tan for your big day will make you glow from the inside out, but remember to treat your tan like your hair and make it as important to get a trial done so that you love the colour and the shade before your wedding day.
Get your spray tan done two days before your wedding. The St. Tropez spray tan takes approx 8 hours to fully develop and often looks the best on the second day. You can maintain it by using gradual tan products. On the day of your wedding just apply some St. Tropez Skin Illuminator on your collar and cheeks and this will make your tan pop.
Before your tan
It is important that you exfoliate your skin, paying particular attention to knees, elbows and heels prior to your spray tan. Your skin must be free of any moisturizer, oils, deodorants, make-up or perfumes before being sprayed. These products act as a barrier, and have a negative effect on your spray tan. Any waxing or shaving should be done at least 24 hours prior to your appointment to ensure the pores of your skin are closed. Leave as long as possible between your shower and your tan so your skin has time to cool after your shower.
What to wear when getting tanned
Most people wear just a disposal G-string to get the best tan possible, but this is a personal choice so wear what’s comfortable for you. You may wear underwear, bathing suit, bikini or nothing! After your tan it is best to wear dark loose fitting clothing.
