    I know this thread can go on the Wedding Attire section as well, but I figured I would place it here since it has to do with TTD pics. Let me know if it should be moved!!!

    I had a question for brides planning or that had already done TTD pics. I noticed a few brides actually duplicate their hair style and makeup from the day of the wedding to take TTD pics. I was debating on whether doing the same since my hair will be up for the wedding, but I don't want to spend the $$ on getting it done again just to get it wet. I do like the look of it though because it looks like you literally just got married and then decided to frolic around in the sand and ocean.

    I also think a more natural look (meaning less makeup and hair down) would look great because then the only really dramatic part of the TTD pic would be the wedding dress. So, I'm torn between what look I want to have!

    I was just wondering what most of you are doing or already did for your TTD pics!?!

      Good question.. I have been wondering about this too... I think a lot of the girls that have their hair up just never took it down from the day before lol.. I could be wrong though.

        I was wondering about that, too! I would probably try to do the same and sleep with my updo, but I'm not taking my TTD pics until two days after! I don't think my hair would be pretty by then!

          lol Yeah probably not... I think it would still be beautiful down maybe with a flower in your hair.

            I honestly just threw my hair in a bun at the side and did not wear any makeup. I didn't want to worry about my makeup in the ocean with the sand and salt. It took me 2 minutes to get ready I just put my dress on over my bathing suit, big mistake my suit was black and when wet my dress was see through, lol. It was such a lighthearted fun shoot from beginning to end:)

              There is no way I could go without makeup. You are beautiful in your pictures... I would look like a hobo

                I was trying to decide what to do with my hair as well. I hope that my hairstyle for the wedding day lasts so I won't have to bother with it. I will be wearing makeup though. I need it!

                  i put on regular makeup, figuring that if i wanted it any different, dh could photoshop it. i put my hair in a bun, but it kept falling out into a ponytail, which looked REALLY dumb under the veil, but most of the pics were so far away, or not of our faces, so you couldn't tell.

                    Very good question. At this time, I don't plan on wearing my hair up though so I don't think I will have an issue unless I change my mind! I don't like people in my head. I usually cut it myself and maybe once a year go to Regis and have them cut it. As far as makeup, I only wear mascara and chapstick. I will have it done on wedding day, but plan to do my usual for the TTD. I'm definitely interested in what others responses will be to this question!

                    I actually don't wear makeup... so I can't remember what i did as far as that. I might have put on waterproof mascara... but I think that's it.

                    As far as my hair: I had a curly up do for the wedding. I had fully intended on leaving it up to sleep in. YUP, that HURT! So i took it down. However when I woke up in the morning it was still curly!!!! So, I simply pulled all the curls to the side and did a side pony (think Carrie Underwood) and put my hair flower in it. I loved it, it looked kind of fancy yet relaxed. I didn't want to pay $75 to get my hair wet :)
                    If you are doing it two days after, then this probably won't work. But maybe you can simply put smaller curls into your hair and style it yourself?
