Bronzed Bride

When it comes to your wedding day, it is important you make the decisions that allow you to feel amazing about yourself. One way is with even skin tones and a glowing tan. Luckily, a few of us at the Wedding Salon were lucky enough to experience a luxurious spray tanning experience from Rachel of Beauty by Rachel. A licensed cosmetologist, Rachel specializes in flawless airbrush tanning, as well as airbrush makeup. She is readily available for house calls within the New York area and loves to work tanning parties (such a cute idea for you and your bridal party). Her products are all organic and absolutely perfect to give you a great glow for your wedding day without risking your skin. She has a few tips for a flawless spray tan experience here:

  • Exfoliate your body the morning of or the night before to get rid of dead skin cells. A loofah or a washcloth will do the trick.
  • Do not wear deodorant or any body oil (including lotion) so that the color goes on evenly.
  • Get your tan 2 days before the event. This is recommended for the best color.
  • Communicate what you want with the person applying your tan. Rachel offers light, medium, and dark colors and can also do sculpting on the body to emphasis muscle tone. Be sure to ask for exactly what you want.

If a flawless tan isn’t enough, Rachel is also the east coast distributor for Sole O’s, shoe bottoms you stick to your feet during the tanning process, but they work great for wedding favors and are the perfect footwear for your guests after a long night in heels.
