I went back and read other posts, and second what OPs said about not doing it the day before your wedding. I did mine two days before and I was still a lot darker than what looked natural on me. It wasn't really bad, it just surprises me every time I look at the pictures.

Also keep in mind you need to be really careful about what you use to wash, I think you're supposed to use soap-free body wash, so you don't mess up the tan before the big day.

And one other thing, once it started coming off, it peeled and looked gross, so I just had to scrub it all off at once.

LOL I forgot about the mess it was when it started to come off. I looked like I had some sort of skin disease when it stared to come off! I freaked! Then I realized it was just the spray tan coming off! haha and I scrubbed with the soap that exfoliates in the shower for EVER to get it all off. it kinda hurt lol But I'm not saying don't do it!!!! It worked!!!

I had the same problem with a farmer's tan three weeks before my wedding. I still think you have plenty of time. I would suggest tanning in the tanning bed until they have all but diminished. Then, (if you want to be dark) keep on tanning until they are gone. Or, if you want to be light, stop tanning once the lines have faded. I also wore strapless dresses and shirts (same goes for bikinis) every single day before my wedding. I know some people have good luck with spray tans, but I've had some experience with them and my advice is not to risk that on your special day. Good luck and I'm sure you will be beautiful!Smile

LOL we've been trying that, only thing is, FH and I usually only go out driving together on Sundays and Friday/Saturday nights for dinner, as we both work during the week... so it's not really working too well! ><

im half tempted to buy a lawn chair and sit out in front of our complex with a towel over my leftside for a little bit, cept our complex is mostly old people so iono how they'd react to a 20-something in a bikini or tube top... LOL

I agree. Just face the side with the towel on it towards them and they won't have anything to look at! Hey why not start with whatever method is free! Weddings are expensive enough.
