Wedding Day Glow...Yes or No?


A common practice for the soon to be Bride (and some grooms) is getting that healthy wedding day glow.  Everyone looks better with a little extra color.  I repeat...a little extra color.  I will give you tips on how to get that beautiful bronze you desire without having the "muddy" or "pumpkin" look.

Do your research before you spray.  The more pale you are, the more likely you are to get that "pumpkin" look.  Not cute.  As I have said before, my favorite system is Versa Spa.  I'm very pale and Versa will always turn me a nice golden color without that pumpkinesque look.  Another great option is to have an actual person spray you.  There are great companies you can hire that will bring a pop up booth to your house or you can go to tanning salons where this service is offered.

Also, make sure you know how the system works before you get in!  You don't want a "Ross" situation.

If you prefer to get your color in a tanning bed, this is an option with little prep time and a good dose of Vitamin D.  Your tan will be more natural and last longer.

Lastly, here is the awesome review that I received on The Knot from a wonderful bride of mine.

WONDERFUL    posted 11/12/2012

Amanda did my make-up, my mother's and three of my bridesmaids. The make-up looked just like the trial - natural, light and beautiful, just like I requested. She helped me pick the eye make-up and lip stick colors based on my personality and the wedding colors. She even came to my house to do the trial! On the day of the wedding, she accommodated my schedule, moving with my bridal party from our hotel suite to our venue as we were getting ready. Because she is so easy to talk to, she felt like part of the bridal party. We were ready on time for pictures and everyone looked marvelous!!!!
