Court- there's an awesome video out there with John Michael Cooper showing how he did the burning dress shot- he photographed the bride, then photographed a blow-up doll in a wedding dress that he set on fire and photoshopped it together. The end result is sooo cool! Check out his website- the photo in question is the first pic that shows up on the intro in his homepage.

The author claims to understand TTD but in reality I think she has no idea. TTD pics are so intimate and sensual! An ignorant article IMO. And yes I am TTD and I cant wait!

I thought the author was a man. maybe that's just how I was reading it.

 

Anyway, i feel like everytime the media talks about TTD, they don't use great examples. I think the fire picture is awesome, but the mud ones disturb me a little. You never see them show pictures of the couples rolling in the sand. I think if they showed those shots more people would understand it. Also, the one where the bride is just ripping the dress isn't that appealing to me either.

 

I'd love to TTD, but my FI isn't into it. He doens't like having his picture taken, so I know it's not something he'd want to do the day after the wedding.

I don't really like that article one bit, and I am not even doing the TTD!
yeah carly that quote really irritated me too. i hope this originally came from an opinion piece, because its a poorly written opinion piece even at that... totally ignorant IMHO. TTD is supposed to be an art form, not some way for a bride to unleash her anger and frustration on the dichotomy of wedding planning evils and whatever else... clearly this piece was written by someone in their 60s who just doesnt understand the concept.

and for anybody who wants to see the auction of the guy who sold his exwifes dress on ebay, check this out, pretty funny (i realized that i had seen this before, a friend sent it to me awhile back):
eBay item 4146756343 (Ends Apr-28-04 15:37:01 PDT) - SIZE 12 WEDDING DRESS/GOWN NO RESERVE

Wow. This lady has no clue. Plus who cares what her opinion is if she thinks a prom dress with a Rugrats watch is "darling." Are you f'ing kidding me? Hippie or not, I would be pissed to have rugrats in my photos.

I was telling the guests at my shower this weekend at my Mom and Dad's house about the TTD.

 

And all of the guests (except for 3) were over the age of 50 -- most 70-91 actually, much OLDER relatives ... and they all thought it was a really neat idea. Now, I did explain that I got my TTD dress off eBay, but regardless, they liked the idea.

 

I explained it to them as a way to get sexy and elegant pictures in setting that you would be unable to achieve on our actual wedding day, hence we are doing ours the day after.

 

I think the lady who 'wrote' that article is just looking to get a rise out of people.

Or she really wants to start a trend to burn mother of the bride dresses. The way she describes her daughter's wedding I'm sure her dress really does need to be burned! They should throw the rugrats watch and army boots into the bonfire too!

    • 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.
