Wedding season is here. Make that beautiful wedding dress pop against the perfect tan.

How to Get the Perfect Wedding Glow

Spray tans are perfect for special occasions when you want to bring your skin to life with a touch of color. For brides, spray tans are the best way to really get that glowing skin. No need to go overboard. A little goes a long way. A good spray tan will help you look radiant on your special day.

To make sure you get the very best results for the happiest day of your life, take these tips into account.

Prepare Your Skin

The one thing that truly makes a difference in the type of results you get, is how well you prep your skin before you tan. Your skin needs to be ready to soak up all the tanning solution so it can properly lock it in and leave you looking like the bronze goddess you deserve to be and feel like on your wedding day. Three things are the most important when it comes to getting ready for your spray tan:


This is the one action that doesn’t just happen the day before you get your spray tan. For a successful application, you want to start exfoliating your skin a couple of times a day a few months before your wedding. This will help reveal the beautiful skin that is lying underneath all the dead skin cells.


Dry skin makes even the best spray tan look dull, and that is something no bride wants on their wedding day. Make sure you moisturize every day after you shower or take a bath. The type of lotion you use really depends on your skin type, but do stay away from any formula that contains alcohol, as those tend to dry out the skin.


If you need to wax, make sure you do 24 to 48 hours before you get your spray tan. If you do it after, you might experience some discoloration in the areas you get waxed.
