Ok- so I had never heard of this until last week. I think the pictures are fantastic and I would definitly get a 2nd dress b/c mine is traditional and poofy with beading. But is there any symbolism in doing this? Are you doing it with your guests watching or is it later? I would have to do it on a different day b/c my wedding is at 11am and want my hair to still look nice for the dinner reception.

 

And I know this is going to sound crazy, by my fiance hates the sand and the water so I know he would have no interest in doing this. He goes to the beach in socks and sandals so that he doesn't have to feel the sand inbetween his toes! So I'm not sure it would be so much fun to do by myself, so i was thinking I might ask my BMs to do it with me, but not if there is some significance to it.

 

any thoughts?

I am doing my trash the dress pics the next day too, dont want to be all wet and soggy looking for our reception and all. I wasnt going to get another dress even though mine is fairly traditional but now I am leaning towards getting another one (a great excuse for another dress, ha). I found one on JCrew's website. I know some other gals found some at White House Black Market and ebay.

 

As far as signifigance I think it is whatever you want it to be. I know we are doing ours for some intimate photos. But ones with your girlfriends sound like a blast too! Its your time, anything goes!!

I don't really think there is a great significance to it, but everyone that has done it, says its fun.

 

Try doing a search for ttd or trash the dress, you will find out so many things.

I did my TTD the next morning .. a few guest heard I was doing it and came to take photos and help me out.. My DH was asleep in bed while I went out for the fun.. it was a BLAST! I went in the pool, on two bars, did a cannon ball into the pool, then went to the ocean for some shots.. I washed a bunch of the sand off my dress at the pool shower then went down the water slide that we loved so much...

 

It was a great time. You're right.. you won't want to do it in a large poofy dress.. they get heavy with water so have someone there to help you out of the pool/ocean waves.

I've heard the symbolism of TTD is to say that you'll never need to wear your wedding dress again because you're married to your love forever.

 

Here's a link to my TTD slideshow. (click photo to view)

you could also do a different kind of ttd, climbing rocks, or rolling in a field...i saw a pic the other day of a bride in her dress on a zipline!

That's very true - you don't have to do TTD at the beach. I know some brides have done TTD when they get back home. I think Leigh Miller did a shoot on the streets of NY - so clearly, there are no "beach only" rules. I think TTD just strays away from your "typical" wedding pictures and gets a little daring!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
