      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.
