    I totally agree. My dress isn't beachy at all and I think that will look so great in the water.

I can only imagine it'll be heavier....but hopefully not full of the day's catch, lol.

      Hi Ladies,

       

      So I am doing a TTD also - I absolutely love the pictures I have been seeing..  Well, my dress is Elastic Woven Satin - my question is- is my dress going to be see through?  I dont know what color under garments I should be wearing so those pics wont be so X rated LOL

          I bought a dress specifically for TTD - not sure what material it was but it was very flowly and lightweight....but still really hard to move in - I loved the pics though so definitely worth it

               I would def wear nude undergarments, so even if you can see through your dress your undies will blend with your skin  :)

                  I wore these:  Commando low rise girl short in true nude (bought on Amazon) & they were great.

                    I just wanted to know your opinion on a TTD dress that is of colour and not the traditional ivory, which is what my wedding dress is. I just got my TTD dress last night and the over all visual i had for this day was  touch of romance and awwww. lol So i went with a RED, not bright red lol lol 

                     

                    As much as i am in love with this dress, I know you have done some amazing work...and was just wondering what your thoughts were! I have the link to my dress for you to see as well. But now that ive bought this..how do i incorporate red for my FI???? hehehehehe never even thought of this until last night. I would really love your opinion and or help with what to do for him?

                    Thank you in advance!

                     

                    And an added note, i love your work! tooo bad you dont do Jamaica! lol

I have come to realize that, even though I love the look of taffeta dresses, they get to be kind of a pain when wet. (if you're doing water photos that is)

                    They tend to fill up with air and turn into a floating balloon and some are almost impossible to get them to "deflate".

                    So if you're buying a second dress get one that has nice flowing fabric that will take to getting wet. Not so long you get wrapped up in wet fabric and cant move though. and they dont have to be expensive fancy dresses to get nice pictures either. :)

                    NOW .. don't go thinking cause you already have a taffeta dress that pictures wont turn out or whatever, because almost all of the dresses i've shot for TTD shoots have been taffeta, but just giving a little heads up if you are going to get a second dress.

                    with that said... happy TTDs'ing :)

                      CANADIAN GIRL... (first off sorry for the dlayed response. BDW.com wasnt letting me know this thread was commented in)

                       

                      funny thing is that i was JUST talking to my bahamas bride about her TTD shoot and she jokingly said red dress thinking it wasnt allowed. And i said that any dress is allowed in the TTD. there are no rules when it comes to your photos. I love the red dress idea. My only concern is that it is tafetta. That is a very tight woven fabric and becomes a little more difficult to work with when it gets wet. It sort of becomes a big balloon when air gets inside and cant escape the wet fabric. So you might have to squeeze it out from time to time ;) hehehe

                       

                      Is the FI wearing black suit or what is he wearing?

                       

                      AND THANK YOU ...I do do jamaica by the way. Just have to work with the permits like the bahamas. They can be an extra added cost so don't do much down in the permit countries.
