    I ran across explanation of TTD and thought it was worded well. I had never heard of it this way, maybe I am just slow though...

    "Trash the Dress" is a movement where a Bride will record the destruction of her Wedding Dress - after her wedding - to show her husband the depth of her commitment to him. She's telling him she'll never need a wedding dress again. It's edgy, sexy, and a lot of fun to shoot.

      i've heard that explanation, but that wasn't what a TTD is about for many of us. to me it's just a way to get some unique pictures without worrying about getting a little dirty. on the wedding day you are trying to stay polished and you are on a time limit. for a ttd you can just let loose. i think the ttd pics usually turn out to be the best pictures from the wedding.

        i love that description, but i do agree with morgan. I can't wait for my TTD session.
        a little help goes a long way.

          I agree with Morgan - that isn't what it's about for most people... especially since a lot of people buy another dress for the TTD session! :)

            Yea I agree with Morgan too. Most of us are just getting the dress wet which won't do anything damaging to it. I explain it as "pictures that are more causal and fun in our wedding clothes".

              i think it was one of those definitions that someone came up with after it started. i imagine people started trashing the dress just to do something fun & creative.

              because, really who would wear the same dress again in their 2nd wedding? i wonder if anyone has done that.

              a lot of photographers are now calling them "day after sessions."

              whatever the meaning behind it, i suggest doing it. i trashed 3 times. the dress had been trashed once before too. it was so much fun!

                Every girl wants to wear the dress they fell in love with one more time!

                It's an awesome description (and maybe a great way to sell your FI on the idea of doing the post-wedding shoot ;-) but I agree, it's a fancy way of saying "hey don't worry about that grass stain because it's gonna make an AWESOME image!"
