    Hey everybody. Here are the reasons why I got a separate gown for my TTD pics:
    - I am in love with my Rivini couture gown and I can't trash it =(
    - I want a different look for my TTD since I couldnt decide what style i should go for my wedding (ex: princess, island, city, vineyard, etc)
    - I am obsessed with TTD pics that have brides running around barefoot in poofy dresses.
    - i want to get creative with my TTD pics without destroying my original gown.

    With that, here is my TTD dress:

    obviously i need some alterations to make it fit my body, but u have an idea of how it looks on me.

    I got the dress at David's Bridal. I didn't want to spend so much money on my TTD dress so my mom and sister went me with me to look. I tried of so many dresses but i knew i wanted poofy. I tried on princess dresses with organza, silk tafetta, and tulle fabrics. I went with the tulle dress since I really want a princess look. i wanted to be very bridal.

    the dress was originally $1,100 but i got it for only $624.99 not bad huh? The sales lady said this dress is already discontinued so I bought it the same day. My wedding gown cost me $6,000 so buying this dress was such a relief! i actually really like this dress so i'm also considering on incorporating this during the reception. I may wear it for the father and daughter dance since it's so princessy.

    i think my TTD pics will be super fun with this dress. I can't wait to see how it will look later. the train is fairly long so I may need to add a bustle just in case i need it for the TTD pics.

    i'm, however, undecided on a veil to wear. i know i want a cathedral veil, but i'm not sure whether i should wear 1-tiered or 2-tiered veil. what do you think?

    please help me decide =)

    thanks you all in advance!

      that will be great for your TTD! My vote is for the 2 tiered - I think it will look great in pics

          I like the 2 tiered - especially if you're going for that really princessy look!

          My dress is very princessy too...I bought it way before I knew I was going to have a destination wedding. It's all lace and poofy. I'm just going to be careful with it when taking pictures...I really want to wear it all night long!! The slimmer typical DW dresses just don't look right on me cause I'm built like a string bean...I need some added curves!

          Your dress is soooo beautiful!!!!
