It was wonderful. Made my eyes look bluer and my teeth look whiter! I was very very pleased with the result.
We went to the barrier reef the next day and the tan did fade slightly and had gone completely after about 10 days.
I would get a trail done to see how you look. I dont tan very well nautrally (Im either white or red!) so the spray on worked very well and was one of the best things I did.

I had a spray tan "trial" and while it looked ok, it stunk and it went everywhere. I couldnt imagine letting it go all over my beautiful dress lol.
So I tanned the naughty way and went to the solarium...it was perfect.
But yes, it is dangerous but I thought it's for my wedding, and that doesnt happen every day!

Its always best to do the whole trial thing and find something that suits you - St Tropez looks great on some people and not so on others (ie me !!). Good luck !

I think I will get one done 2 days before the wedding and I can even get it done a lighter shade than the trial I had and it should hopefully look really good.

I had it done on the Thursday afternoon and went into work to do something on the Friday and everyone went OMG because i'm naturally pale and freckled LOL It was wayyyyyyyy too dark but that was the lightest 'SunFX' one available... (and to think the lady tried to tell me to go with medium strength haha)
But by the Saturday morning, and a couple of showers it had paled down and looked awesome, I loved it and everyone commented on how healthy I looked.. someone else mentioned their eyes looked bluer and teeth whiter! I agree with it..
I can't wait to have another one cos it also just makes you feel awesome and can hide some of your cellulite if you are wearing a 'kini on your honeymoon (we swam the day after wedding at the married couples house!)
I didn't have a trial but I would recommend it ... a friend of mine had a similar kind of spray tan (unsure what brand) but she had a reaction to it and broke out in a rash

Each to their own I guess.. I am a very pale girl and I hate being this white. Whenever I go out I always get a spray tan done but my lady does an awsome job and it looks like the colour it should, not orange peel.. For my wedding I just had it done three days before rather than the day before so it could fade naturally.. But the secret to a great fake tan is to have a body scrub before you do. It lasts so much longer and doesn't fade all blotchy..
And if you can see from my below photo's you cant even really tell I had the tan on but in my eyes it made me so much more confident on the day because that "shine" was off.!

If you do end up going spray tan - definitely trial a couple of brands. I have a friend who got a cheaper one done and she couldn't lift her arms all day due to her underarms going a beautiful shade of bright yellow. Luckily, she is the type to laugh things like that off. And it was someone elses wedding not hers.

I am going to the solarium twice a week, i tan really easily so it doesn't take much. Yep I know its bad for you but I'm qutting right after my wedding- I promise
...plus I don't smoke or do drugs so I figure this even things out a bit

When i was able to have a shower (after 8 hours) the excess washed off and the smell was gone.
I think it is important to find somewhere that will do it properly and have many different shades. Many places will allow you tell them whether you want light or dark colour.

I too am as pale as you come so I went the lightest colour but it was a BIT difference but it look great and last about 2 weeks which is great for pale skin. I only hated it when it was starting to come off coz it was coming off in patches.
Chlorine shouldnt make one bit of difference. A girl I know gets spray tan all the time and she is swimming every day

avoid techno tan like crazy, like i said im not a fan of sun fx, faken it is shocking..... this is just my opinion i have had a LOT of spray tans (dont now)
aviva is certainly the best- i warn you, you won't come out looking like a bronzed bunny but you can wear it straight out that night and i found it didn't turn my bed sheets orange???
we have it here in perth, i know aviva is stocked by uk, but they had trouble getting a distributor in australia, but she is based in perth, i have no clue if aviva is stocked in eastern states , but just thought id let you know my experience???
it's great diff girls have had good reactions with some products- i am just giving you my experiences as i spray tanned for about 3 yrs (till my partner and friends finally told me i looked shocking doing it HAHAHAHAHA!)

We had them done on the Thursday night before the Saturday afternoon wedding, and while it does have a slight smell, when I showered the morning of the Wedding, I used a scented bath gel, and then moisurised with the same scent, and then had my matching perfume as well (so I was layered) and you couldn't smell anything but the scent that I wanted! My BMs did the same.
I had a strapless dress and the top of the bodice did have a little bit of colour from the tan, but that was it, and the dry cleaning took that out anyway, so you'd never know.
I just felt so good on the day, and the photos look awesome!! It really does set off the white dress, and my necklace looked stunning too!
But if you're thinking about it, defintely get a trial done - we did, and it helped us know which day was the best day to get done, and it gives you the confidence to know that it will be OK. Try one a few months before, so if it doesn't work out, you can still try a different type later and see which one works best.
