    I don't know how to do a poll, or I'd make this one...

    We are doing a TTD :) I just booked a photog for it. I'm torn because I want to wear my actual dress for it. Here are the issues....a)the dress cost quite a bit of money, B) grandma bought the dress as my wedding gift, c) We are having an AHR and I have to wear my dress again, so grandma can see me in it (she's over 90 and not going to Mexico).

    I know a lot of brides say their dress comes out cleaner, but I don't know if it's the same fabric &/or beadwork.

    Tell me what you think? Wil the sand/saltwater stain it and/or ruin the beadwork?

    Here's a link to my dress.

      First of all your gown is gorgeous!!!! Secondly even though I am doing our TTD in my dress I am not wearing it again. I guess because your grandmother bought it and you are wearing it for your AHR where she will be I would go with wearing a different dress for the TTD just to be on the safe side. IF you are too worried about it you may not do what you want for the TTD (like roll around in sand or get crazy in the water, etc). JMHO

        How long after you get back is your AHR?

          I would normally say DO IT- but how does satin hold up in water? I thought it stained easily.

              That's what I'm concerned about, I don't know if it'll stain

                  Screw the models. They need to eat more. :)

                  I'm sure you look beautiful. I'd just google water affects on satin.

                  BUTTTTTT- you could always do a TTD around the town and stay completely away from water. Those are my FAV pics actually- someone just posted some recently. Look in the PV section. They are gorgeous! Plus you dress will be so dirty just from the wedding/reception so who cares if it gets a tad more dirty around town.

                    I don't have any advice because I haven't even thought about that yet, but I just wanted to tell you that your dress is absolutely gorgeous!!!
