All salons are professionals I wouldn't worry how it turns out but you could do a patch test just in the unlikely event you would be allergic to their particular brand of tan. Enjoy the wedding!

to be honest if you've never had it done before i'd get a trial. i got mine done in a salon a few months ago for a friends wedding and it was perfect. a friend got hers done in the same salon last week and it was a disaster, her hands were literally orange the following day and it looked terrible. if you decide not to get a trial follow exactly what they tell you to do, i.e they might tell you to wear socks on your hands overnight. Also, make absolutely sure that you don't touch any part of your skin with your hands.

A trial is a must if its a first time (though if its not your wedding it matters less, I guess), as you may decide it doesn't suit you or its too dark (or not dark enough) etc etc. Usually having it done thurs for sat is fine as it gives you time if it does need 'fixing' Exfoliate like a demon before you go and avoid moisturinsing wearing deoderant etc if poss when you go an get it done.

Just to warn you if you havnt had one done before..they give you paper knickers to wear...I didnt know what they were when the girl gave them to me.. Also I usually wear an old strapless bra (one that you dont mind getting stained!) Good Luck! :o0

They'll give you the paper pants but you can just say you don't need them that you have an old pair on. Don't worry about it, i'm sure they've seen it all at this stage(i mean that in the nicest possible way)
