I'm getting married this Saturday and today I'm going to sun tan city to do the spray tan. Has anyone done this? I have a coupon for a free session and I really want to have some color for my wedding. This is not where the person sprays you this is the machine you step into and you can choose your shade and stuff. Anyone want to share their experience? Will it last till Saturday? What can I do to make it last longer? I had a bad experience once during a spray tan where the person sprayed it on me and I looked Terible I was spotty all over just so nervous that will happen again

make sure you exfoliate well before you go so that all the skin that gets sprayed is new skin that won't flake off in patches. :)

If you had a bad experience with self tanner once before, I don't think I would chance doing it again so close to the wedding

Last time I had it done I had it done at a cosmetology school by a student and she made it so dark and uneven. This time its professional and I will choose a much lighter color.

Exfoliate the night before I mean real good don't put any lotion on deodorant body spray ect. Your skin needs to be totally bare nothing on it. Put her hair up as much as possible then don't wash or anything up to 8+ hrs. And the first rinse/shower don't use soap just rinse. To make it last longer you can use a tan lotion jergens anything that has worked for you. Try avoiding extremely hot showers sweating or putting make up on until your wedding. No baby lotion or oil or mineral oil on your skin it will fade it out.

Ok thanks. I already did a good exfoliating. So I can just use regular lotion like Nivea? Can I shave? I'd like to shave the day before wedding but scared I will take off the tan

Massage it in all over? Or just around knees and feet? This machine apparently air dries you too and you can put clothes o right after.

Oh really? Do you so it in those machines? Or does a person do it? I don't want to be really dark I just won't a glow.
