    It just depends on what you want to do.... If you want to go somewhere special or if you just want to stay at your beach and do it. We had about two hours... but we did it right at our resort.

      We flew in our photographer, so we really had unlimited time. I think we did four hours. The first 45 minutes at the hotel. Then the travel time to get to Tulum, then the walking... oh the walking. Then we played at the beach for 3 hours. OMG was I starving when we were done!!!

        I love the TTD concept, but how do you girls do it? I can't imagine spending that much on a dress to wear it in the ocean and ruin it.

          It really doesn't ruin it. I bought a separate dress to Trash and I wish I would have used my wedding dress. My wedding dress was soooo dirty after wearing it on the wedding day and my TTD dress was sparkling clean. The ocean actually washes it!!!

            My TTD only lasted an hour but we just did it outside the hotel. I bought a cheaper TTD but like Kat said, the TTD dress was in better shape than my wedding gown when I got home!

              I did a TTD the day after the wedding. It took about 1 hr. We just walked to the beach in front of our hotel. It was around 5ish when most people were getting ready to have dinner or dress for dinner. It was a lot of fun. I thought my dress was going to be ruin but the water actually cleaned it from the beach wedding the night before. I didnt have any makeup on since I was about to be dunked in the ocean nor did I do my hair. I was natural and again mostly because I was going to be completely wet from walking in the ocean. We had a blast and one word to your groom...my dress weight was a lot heavier than it was going in dry. hahaha A wave actually took us out but it made for some fun pics. We love those pics of the TTD session. Very fun!!!
              Happy Wedding...........
              Our first year married. We had our marriage blessed at our Catholic Church.

                Well, hearing you guys say that makes me want to do it A LOT more. I guess my worry is I wanted to wear my dress to my recpetion which is going to be after our honeymoon. We are having a small family only wedding, going on our honeymoon, and then coming home and having a huge reception for all of our friends that couldn't come with us. I just don't want it to be ruined...but I guess if you have it dry cleaned it should be okay. Oh well.....guess I have plenty of time to decide what I'm going to do.

                Thanks!

                  i put on make up, but not much, i was expecting to get totally wet and figured i might as well not put it on in the first place. in the end we didn't get totally wet because the waves were to big to actully swim. so i wish i would have put more on!

                  i did blow dry and curl my hair a bit. but again, nothing crazy because i knew it would get wet anyway

                    You can always buy a used dresss or a cheap one to Trash if you are worried about it!! My wedding dress was poofy and it would have wieghed a TON wet. So I got a slimmer one layered dress to Trash, even that was really heavy.
