        Can't wait to do the TTD session... but it will be in another "spare" dress.

          I feel the same way. I was thinking about it, but my FI shut me down
          If it was just jumping in the water, maybe, but I don't think he likes the "frolicking" part of it.

            I think we're going to do it, but now I'm in a panic trying to find a "replica dress" so that I don't ruin the original one.

            My dress is mostly charmeuse and I've heard that any water will stain the dress (especially impt when steaming it).

            So if anyone's got a slinky halter dress they're willing to sell for cheap...

                I would have loved to have the opportunity to do a TTD when I got married but 25 years ago, I don't think they did that. Go for it! From what I have seen of the ladies here, they are some of the best photos that I have seen.

                  I thought it was slightly cheesy but I liked the photos so decided to do it anyways.

                  I wasn't planning on using my actual dress, because I needed it for my AHR and want to sell it after (and my parents would have been so hard on me if it got ruined, saying it's so stupid). So I bought a long white slim fitting dress on sale to use for that.

                  But on my wedding day the bottom got wet a little and it was obvious that the ocean was actually making it cleaner, not dirtying it at all. So I ended up wearing it! Afterwards I rinsed it in the shower and it came out so clean that I didn't even bother dry cleaning it before the AHR! If I hadn't cleaned it in the ocean/shower I defintiely would have needed to dry clean it because it got so dirty with sand on my wedding day.

                  we didn't have that much fun doing the shoot (like others have said), it was more posed (i.e. not like "okay you guys have fun and I'll just take the photos"). I think it depends on the photographer's style, also we were on the resort beach with people around, and the beach at our resort was kinda crappy so we were trying to work around it to be at the good parts, and sometimes we would step on rocks which was painful. Also we had woken up early to do it, when really we would have liked to sleep in and do it later (but then the beach would have been too busy). That didn't help because although my husband didn't mind the idea of the shoot, he wasn't happy about getting up early. My photographer seemed tired too. Anyways, all around it was more like work than fun, but I don't mind, the photos are awesome, I just didn't have the experience others have of saying it was really fun. I think the photographer's style would determine a lot of this seeing as some don't do posing they just capture whatever is going on

                      you could always do it on your own, without your new husband! I mean, it's called Trash the Dress not Trash the Suit!!! Obviously you wouldn't do nearly as many photos and poses, but, what I'm getting at, is just because your husband doesn't want to shouldn't stop you from getting a few photos taken of you lying on the beach and in the water with your dress.
