Having a golden glow on your wedding day is often a requirement on every Bride’s with list and with the advent of the most modern techniques in Spray Tanning, looking your best has never been so easy!
Here we take a look at some of the reasons why it’s better to choose a spray tan rather than a tanning bed to get that natural glow for your wedding.
Choose the colour you want to go
The problem with tanning on a sun bed or trying to tan your skin naturally is that you can’t really control how light or dark the colour is. The great thing about spray tans is that you can select the tanning shade you would like for your wedding day. Whether you go for a light or dark tan is up to you but remember that the colour tends to develop as the day goes on.
The run up to your wedding is going to be pretty hectic. With so many things to do, you have to ask yourself – do you really have the time to be lounging on a tanning bed every day? Probably not.
The good news is that getting a spray tan for your wedding is super quick. In just fifteen minutes you will be able to go from being pale to beautifully bronzed. Some brides prefer to meet a tanning consultant with their key wedding party members so that the bridal party is in alignment when it comes to tanning colours. The better quality tans will be ones that complement the skin tone, smooth over any perfections and leave you looking golden.
Even skin tone and hide blemishes
If you’re not the world’s best self-tanner, it’s best to go and have your wedding spray tan done by a professional. They will be able to ensure you are left with a nice even colour. Many beauticians will also be able to use the spray tan to even out your skin tone and hide any blemishes or imperfections that you don’t want appearing on your wedding photos!
No health risks
The obvious benefit of having a spray tan for your wedding is that you won’t be putting your health at risk. Sun beds are closely linked with skin cancer and since you don’t want to be worrying about that in the run up to your big day, it’s much safer to go for a wedding spray tan instead.
With sun beds, you tend to have to go on them regularly over a good few weeks before your tan becomes noticeable. So if you haven’t left enough time to build up a tan before your wedding, you’re not going to have the beautiful bronze skin you’d hoped for – unless of course you make a wise decision and have a spray tan!
With spray tans, you’re instantly tanned, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not it’s going to work. It’s much more effective than sun bed tanning and will allow you to achieve a natural colour, without the risk of burning. If you want to get an idea of how you will look on your wedding day, it may be best to book yourself in for a trial run a few weeks before.
No transfer onto wedding dress
Many brides worry than their spray tan will transfer onto their wedding dress but as long as you’ve left it to dry and had your shower before your big day, there’s no need to worry! Your spray tan will stay put on your skin, so you don’t have to worry about it ruining your beautiful white dress. It will fade after a week or so but by that time you’ll be building up a real tan on your honeymoon anyway!
The pre-wedding day pampering is an important part of the wedding experience, meeting your tanning specialist in advance to discuss your tanning requirements will be relaxing and fun. If you are having your make up done professionally also then setting a date for a make-up trial and a tanning trial at the same time is the best way to get the perfect results on your special day.
