TTD Question, probably a dumb ?

Recommended Posts

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!huh02.gif

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?

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 have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good  I enjoyed my stay at both, but personally I liked the ambiance better at Dreams La Romana.  In the past 10 years or so Destination weddings have become very popular and the resorts do 100's each year. 60 guests with approx 30 rooms or so is a great group, but when the resorts have 500+ rooms they do not look at it as a large group. Most resorts are pretty set when it comes to what they offer in their wedding packages, but some may do an upgrade for the bride & groom if it's available. The benefit of doing a group block is you have the opportunity to earn group amenities based on the number of guests & rooms that book at the resort.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
