We left 2 mornings after the wedding, so we did the TTD the morning after which really sucked as we got up at 6am! I knew it would suck but felt like we had no choice.
To the bride you said she wanted to wear her dress again for the AHR, you realize most brides dresses don't actually get trashed right? I bought a different dress too, but after seeing how my dress handled the water (when it got a little wet and sandy on the wedding day) I decided to wear it and it came out in better shape, totally clean! All brides I've heard who have done TTD have said the same except one who said sand got stuck in teh lace and wouldn't come out. So it obviously depends on the material of the dress and what exactly you'll be doing but if you are just playing in the water most dresses will be totally fine and you can re-wear it to your AHR

I had a second dress so it was no problem. My TTD was informal. I went in teh pool first, then the ocean. To clean, I put the dress in the shower with me and hosed it down. I simply hung it outside on out balcony to dry. It was completely dry the next morning. I even wore the dress again after our ceremony at the reception there and jumped into the pool again.
It was nice to have it out of the way. We left 2 days after the wedding and I didn't have to get up early or even leave the room the next day. I like being able to relax and not have to follow a schedule.
My TTD was much cleaner than my real dress. It was a mess! I couldn't believe it. I only had it on for about 5 hours!
