"Fake" dress for TTD photog. session?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Originally, we weren't going to have a trash the dress photog. session for two reasons...1) because I'll be wearing my dress again at a home reception and 2) because we couldn't afford the photographer to come back the next day :) Well, a good friend of mine has decided to come to our wedding and she does photography as a hobby and has asked us if she could do a TTD session for her portfolio. Of course, we're ecstatic and want to do it but I don't want to wreck my dress lol. What if I got a similar looking dress for cheap to wear in the TTD pics? Has anyone ever heard of this before? We love the look of the water TTD pics and think it would be fun but there's this dilemma!! What do you think?

Brides do this all of the time.

 

You can find a cheap dress on E-bay, Craig's List, and even here after brides are finished with their dresses.

A lot of people (most I think!) get a second dress for their TTD. You can buy a cheap one from ebay or Craigslist or go to a discount bridal store. It doesn't have to look like your actual dress...it can be completely different.

As a side note, there are lots of comments on here about TTD sessions & how dresses hold up in the ocean. Everyone seems to agree that "trashing" the dress is not actually ruining it. Some people say their TTD is cleaner than their other one!!

Search it here...you will find an abundance of info!

Yes, jump on the opportunity! My FI and I have booked Tamms Destination Photography Team - husband and wife team that stay for 2 nights capturing the Rehearsal Dinner, The Entire Wedding Day-unlimited - 1 photog with the ladies and 1 photog with the men and then a Trash the Dress session following the wedding day + so much more!

I myself did not want to wear my original ceremony dress, so I opted to purchase a second dress from Julius Bridal.com - it is stunning and cost $214 with shipping and has been custom made!!! I will be wearing this dress for the later half our our reception and then wearing it again for the TTD - I am also going to do a few changes during the shoot to get some different pics.

Best of Luck!
