- Your dentist can do this for you, a lot of them actually run specials when you get engaged and will do it for a discount. Also, this is a good time to think about Invisalign if needed, and then get whitened after.
- 360 Tans – Two locations, north and south.
- Laurel Corinne – Get the Sunless Body Blend for the best spray tan of your life.
- Hush Hush – A cult favorite, on W 6th. Great color selection.
Pro Tip: Try showering twice before the big day, it will help make sure the spray tan doesn’t transfer onto your white dress!
Lake Austin Spa – Steam room, sauna, and hot tub
The W Away Spa – Ask for Wendy, and go to the rooftop pool after!
Milk & Honey Spa – Try a Lymphatic Drainage massage, relieves bloating and really defines muscles and bone structure in face.
Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa – Go for a couples massage! Definitely make a day out of this resort (or a weekend).
Pro Tip: For my brides, try using a Beauty Checklist at least six months before the wedding. It will really tell you when to try out your spray tan, whiten your teeth, get massages, facials, etc. That way when the month of the wedding comes, you know exactly what you need!
