Glowing Brides: The Ultimate Guide to Pre-Wedding Spray Tans in St. Petersburg, FL

Your wedding day is one of the most special moments of your life. You've found the perfect dress, booked the ideal venue, and planned every detail to perfection. But there's one more secret to bridal radiance that can't be overlooked: a flawless spray tan.

At TheBronze Lily, we understand the importance of achieving that sun-kissed, natural glow on your big day. With two in-house master spray tan artists boasting a combined experience of 19 years and our unique sweat-resistant formula tailored for brides, we're here to explain why a pre-wedding spray tan is a must and why we're the best choice in St. Petersburg, FL and the surrounding Tampa Bay areas.

Part 1: Why Every Bride Needs a Pre-Wedding Spray Tan

1.1. Radiance and Confidence

A spray tan can instantly boost your confidence by giving you a radiant and healthy glow. You'll look and feel your best, with that just-back-from-the-beach/vacation tan that will make your skin appear flawless in photos and in-person.

No matter if you are looking for a subtle bridal glow or a deep dark flawless spray tan, our St. Petersburg, FL salon will provide that extra touch of radiance to your wedding look that will round out your confidence on your big day.

1.2. Even Skin Tone

Spray tans can help even out any imperfections in your skin tone, giving you a smooth and consistent look. Say goodbye to tan lines, blemishes, and redness that may be more noticeable in your wedding photos.

Remember, you will have these photos for the duration of your marriage and will want to see yourself next to your husband with an even skin tone and smooth complexion. Let our master artists provide you with these benefits in our St. Petersburg, FL salon and mobile hotel/AirBnB/house calls.

1.3. A Natural and Healthy Option

A spray tan is a healthier alternative to sunbathing or tanning beds, which can damage your skin and increase the risk of sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging. With our professional spray tan artists, you can achieve a natural-looking tan without harmful UV exposure.

Our artists at our boutique spray tan salon in St. Petersburg, FL will priortize the health and glow of your skin while attending to every detail of the tan - protecting your recently manicured fingernails and toe nails, ensure no color transfer occurs to the palms of your hands, being delicate with the spraying of your hands and feet, and ensuring you have a flawless application where your guests will wonder how it turned out so perfectly.

Part 2: The Bronze Lily Difference

2.1. Master Spray Tan Artists

At The Bronze Lily, we pride ourselves on having not one but two master spray tan artists with a combined experience of 19 years. Our experts understand the intricacies of spray tanning, stay up to date on all current techniques and best practices ensuring you receive a customized and impeccable tan that complements your skin tone.

Our master artists in our St. Petersburg, FL salon are the ONLY two long-standing, still practicing artists in our community. You will not find any artist working in any other salon with more experience in and around the Tampa Bay Area.

2.2. Sweat-Resistant Formula

One of our standout features is our specially formulated, sweat-resistant tanning solution, designed by our owner with brides in mind. We understand that wedding days can be emotionally charged and physically demanding, and the last thing you want is for your beautiful tan to transfer to the inside of your wedding dress and ruin it. Our formula ensures your tan stays put, even during those special, joyful moments.

This sweat-resistant formula is proparitary to The Bronze Lily and will only be found in our St. Petersburg, FL salon and is used in all of our mobile, house-call appointments.

When our artists use the term “sweat-resistant”, we make this claim because the solution stays put during the development period more than standard products, creating less fear of final result issues.

This formula was also developed for active clients - clients who workout regularly, sweat more during everyday life, or wish to be active in pools/oceans during vacations.

Our sweat resistant formula is also perfect for those clients wishing to be able to wear their white clothing during the life of their spray tan. Old standard spray tan solutions, even after the first soap shower, will “rub off” on the inside of clothing. We developed this solution to minimize this unwanted consequence.

2.3. Customizable Tan Shades

Every bride is unique, and so are their preferences for the final tan shade for their big day. Our salon offers a wide range of customizable shades of bronze - from light, medium, dark, and every variation in between. Thus, you can achieve the perfect tone that complements your skin and the theme of your wedding.

Here at The Bronze Lily in St. Petersburg, FL, our artists understand and have the experience with brides looking for every final look for their big day - to feel like their best natural selves or to feel like a glamoursly transformed woman about to start their new journey.

Part 3: How to Prepare for Your Bridal Spray Tan

3.1. Schedule a Consultation

Before your big day, schedule a consultation with our expert spray tan artists - virtual or in person. Discuss your desired tan shade, any concerns you may have, and any specific needs related to your wedding attire or plans.

We will always encourage our brides, when possible, to visit us in salon 2-3 weeks prior to their wedding day or other wedding plans (engagment photos, bridal shower, bachelorette party, etc.) for a trial run. A trial run allows us and our brides 100% confidence in their final color for the big day and other surrounding events. In the trial run appointment, we are able to test color and ensure all areas of the body give a flawless final look.

However, we understand that with our salon in St. Petersburg, FL being the final destination for brides for their big day, as they are traveling into our area or the surrounding Tampa Bay areas for their ceremony, that a trial run is not always possible. In these cases, what sets our salon apart from others, is that brides can feel 100% confident to trust our experienced artists. We are the only salon around housing artists with years and years of experience - a combined 19 years of experience to be exact.

3.2. Exfoliate and Hydrate

In the days leading up to your spray tan appointment, exfoliate your skin to ensure an even application. Follow with moisturizing to create a smooth canvas for your tan.

3.3. Dress Accordingly

On the day of your spray tan appointment, wear loose, dark clothing to avoid any potential staining. After your spray tan, avoid tight clothing that may rub against your skin and impact the tan's development.

3.4. Spray Tan After Other Beauty Services

We can not stress this fact enough: Your spray tan appointment should be the final step in getting ready for your wedding. Please have all other services scheduled and completed prior to your spray tan application in our St. Petersburg, FL salon. These services include: waxing, nail appointments, hair cut/color, lash extension appointments, etc.

Here at our St. Petersburg, FL salon, we have the ability to protect the work from your other services during the spray tan application process. For example, we protect the nails with a barrier cream. We use disposable plastic shower caps that do not allow solution to penetrate into the hair of our clients.
