St Tropez / other salon tan: will I need a top-up?

Going to the States on 16 July for a wedding on the 20th, so dilemma is: do I get a fake tan before I go then go for a top-up when I'm there, say the day before the wedding? I've had St Tropez before but always the day before an event so can't actually remember how long it lasts. I'm deathly white so need quite a lot of work before I start looking remotely healthy - a faded/weak fake tan just lets my bluey whiteness shine through. Any thoughts on this momentous decision ..... ?

PS I know I could take products with me to top it up myself but HATE the faff of DIY tanning, although the new Johnsons body lotion recommended on another thread may be an easier option?

Had a St Tropez once, think it started to fade after about 3 days, and then seemed to disappear very quickly after that, so think you may well want a top up...

will also depend on how often you wash I suppose

That's the answer - go dirty! Thanks vic
