Ok so I get what TTD pics are...but when do you take the pics the day of the wedding or the day after? If it is the day of the wedding how do you not ruin everything else you had done (hair, makeup, etc) and is it always a different dress then your wedding dress?

 

I kinda know someone, who knows someone who had a DW and she did it right after the ceremony and then changed but it was only 1 pic with the entire bridal party ...I thought it was weird to spend all that $ and everything be ruined 20 minutes in to the wedding...

 

So what is the TTD protocol?

I really don't think there is a TTD protocol. I think most brides did what they felt was most comfortable for them. From reading many reviews here on BDW, it seems that you have those who did it the day of, later on after the reception & changed their dress so nothing is really "ruined", and those who did it the day after the wedding. Some did it in their wedding dress, and some used a different dress.
I say go with what you think you'd like to do.

agreed its really up to you. Our photog said she always does it the day after. And its really up to you if you want to wear the same dress or have a ttd dress. I'm going to be wearing my actual dress.

I did it 2 days after my wedding and I did it in my actual wedding dress, I did not buy a TTD dress. I went to the hairdresser at the resort and asked her to do something with my hair and she made it look great, and I did my own make-up. I loved it and highly recommend it.

I agree, I don't think there really is protocol. Our photog will be picking us up the morning (hopefully not too early!) after the wedding and taking us to the beach where we'll be doing our picutes. I plan on wearing another dress as I will be having 2 receptions and wearing my dress to both. Craigslist, here I come!

I'm wearing my actual wedding dress and we are doing it the morning after the wedding at sunrise. They say that's the best lighting, and I think it will be special to do it the morning after the wedding :) Do your "dryer" TTD pics first, followed by the wild water/sand pics. I can't wait for this!!!!!!!!!

I just booked my TTD photographer and he said that the best time is either early morning or late afternoon for the best lighting. My wedding is at 10 am and it's jus the two of us (no reception after), so we've decided that later that afternoon would work for us. If you have a reception after, you might want to do it the next day. It'll be so much fun, i'm excited for you! I think i'll be using my wedding dress since we're not having a AHR and that way I can say my dress was used for more than just 30 min. LOL!
