    Make sure you get more than an hour. That isn't very long at all! And YAY for your Fi getting into it too.

        yeah most people i've told about it think i'm mad! we have shown some examples from this site to family for them to understand more, but friends and work colleagues think we are loonies! spending all that money on a dress only to trash it! but the way i look at it, what else am i going to do with it? lets me serious, how many daughters wear their mums dresses? and i'm generally not a horder anyway, so would be inclined to bin it after a year or so collecting dust in the loft!

        these pictures are a once in a life time opportunity that only destination weddings really get to pull off - so no way am i giving up that chance!

          You definitely need more than one hour. I would go with a 2-3 hour package. Time flies! And, you should tell your mom that your dress doesn't really get trashed. It comes out cleaner than before because by the end of your wedding night the bottom of your dress will be really dirty! Mine was definitely cleaner afterward.

But of course after seeing the amazing pictures and becoming a wedding photography obssessed whore ~ I am now determined to have my own fabulous TTD photoshoot!!!

            I too think you should show your mom some sample pictures, but even after that, she still may not understand. I think what makes the TTD session special is that it captures that exciting moment after all the wedding stress is gone and you and your new hubby can just enjoy the start of your lives together as husband and wife. Some of the best pics I've ever seen on this forum are in TTD sessions.

            So girl, if it's what you want to do, and FI is on board...then I say GO FOR IT!! These pics are of the two of you to enjoy and cherish. Although no one else may understand the importance or meaning behind them, who gives a rat's ass, JUST DO IT!!!!
            I completely agree with this.

            No one I mention it to for the first time, has ever even heard of them. They don't get it, not until and unless the see photos.

            My mom thinks the entire premise of a DW is a waste of money. lol My sister had hers two years ago, and my mom went but wasn't that thrilled about the entire thing. The beach in particular is just not her piece of cake and she would have rather had the wedding locally so that she could do all that mother of the bride stuff that normal weddings have.

            I just don't worry about it. As my baby sis says, "Do YOU". In other words, do what YOU want to do and what will make YOU happy at the end of it all. It's your wedding, your vision, your dream here. Have what you want and don't feel the need to make anybody else understand it.

              The way I see it it either collects dust in your closet and you never look at it or you have FUN AND MEMORIES and trash it!
