    Okay, so I really want to do some form of Trash the Dress. I especially love the ones in water up to the knees or laying on sand together. My question to the ladies who have done this or are planning on it, are you doing this with your wedding dress (ie the real one) and having a cheaper backup dress for the pics, or just going for it? Are you all just assuming that sand and water can be cleaned?

    Honestly, my dress was not crazy expensive, and I doubt I would pass it down for generations or something like that. Just curious about how TTD is typically done.

    THanks!

      I bought another dress not because I didn't want to ruin my dress but because I knew my dress would be SUPER heavy when it was wet. I kinda wished I used my wedding dress though because my TTD dress ended up really clean and my wedding dress was FILTHY. I know if I had used it for the TTD it would have been a lot cleaner coming home.

          From wearing it around on the wedding day. It drags the ground and collects EVERY piece of dirt around. My TTD dress was so clean that I didn't even have to get it cleaned when I came home. I know a lot of people say that they wore their wedding dress and it came out cleaner after the photo session than it was before. But you never know.

            Yeah, I am still deciding if I care about the dress after the wedding. It wasnt super extravagant, or anything, and while i want to keep it around for memories, I guess after getting it cleaned it goes into some type of storage package anyway, right?

              I wore the same dress, and I agree--it was MUCH cleaner afterwards. The waterfall basically power washed the dress! I just got my back from the cleaners and it looks great!

                  There are a couple of threads on this you should search for, but I know you should also consider your dress material. Silk gets water damage (spots) and lace will collect sand more than other fabrics.

                  Oh wait...I remember a photographer just did a thread about TTD dress tips. You also have to consider how the dress will play with the water (get too heavy like Kat said or bubble up, etc).

                    I wore the same dress - and mine as well was cleaner after my TTD than it was the day after the wedding. Go for it!

                      I wore a shorter dress, I wanted a differnt look for pictures. I agree, the dress didn't get dirty... it is up to you.
