Trashing the Dress - answers please

Recommended Posts

We are doing it, but we haven't decided if we are going to get the photog to do it for us, or just get a couple of the wedding guests that like taking photos to do it. We are planning on doing an excursion to a little village a couple days after the wedding, and we are going to take my dress real dress and do pics there, but that won't be the same day as the TTD session.

 

As for the dress, my Mom is making me one that will be similar to my real dress, but lighter and more flowy. I wasn't sure about using the realy one just because we are having a AHR and my dress is white and teal, so I am not sure about what will happen to the coloured part or if it will run! I am playing it safe and doing the 2 separate dresses.

 

I can't wait!!!!

I'm going to get a second, cheaper dress for it. My dress cost a lot of $$ and I have to wear it again for the AHR. I know everyone said their dress didn't get ruined, but I can't take that chance.

I'm SO excited!!!!!
Can you PM me your price list when you get the information. I'm not sure if I have enough time to arrange this (2 months), but I would love to try. I was planning to do this when we got home. We have Lake Tahoe about an hour away, and it would be great to do it there, but it will not compare to Cancun and the ocean. Thanks.

You tell just your man that you heard on the forum that nothing makes a girl hotter than doing a trash the dress. It's not a lie. Several girls have said that.

I totally want to do one, but we are leaving the day after our wedding for our honeymoon. I need to find a photographer in Curacao to do a TTD shot for us. I need to add that to my to list.

We ended up doing our TTD session at 9am the morning after the wedding. We left that evening too....So I ended up carrying a wet dress on the plane but it was fine :) So worth it.

We are planning to do the TTD session the day after the wedding, and then do our group trip to Altos de Chavon the following day where we are going to take some more TTD photos.

When I think of TTD or Day after sessions I think of a dirty alley, bull ring, or sitting on some beautiful 150 year old stone steps. On a wedding day almost all of my brides want to keep the dress as clean as possible (of course) , so the day after sessions provide a photo op where we can go out, shoot and not have to worry about keeping clean.

Ditto..We have a Day after shoot scheduled in Jamaica and I am debating on whether to use my dress or get a nother one but I am leaning towards using my dress.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
