Any Cruise Brides Doing TTD?

Recommended Posts

Okay so I had never even heard of a TTD (trash the dress) shoot until getting on this forum. Now I feel like this is something I should be doing! We're on such a tight budget ($10000 for EVERYTHING) that we aren't doing an engagement shoot, and I doubt we're going to get a lot of the posed photos from the ship photographer (they're so expensive and I'm not a fan of the posed ship photos in the first place).

 

So now I'm thinking I want to at least see how much it would be to do a TTD while in port at Cozumel.

 

Are any other cruise brides doing a TTD?

 

Or any other brides know a good photographer in Cozumel?

I was thinking of doing one too after seeing some really awesome pics. I went to David's Bridal yesterday to see what they had in their $99 dress sale but I wasn't in love with any of them and now I'm not sure if it is worth the extra expense, but they look so fun and it would a great keepsake.. too hard to decide!

It really does seem like a big expense, but everyone's pictures look so good! I was going to check out Ebay for something worth trashing.

But I don't even have my regular dress picked out yet so I guess I'll see how much I end up spending on that.

I love this forum but sometimes I think it just makes me want to spend more money on things I never would have thought of before!

OMG Kimber I soo agree with you. My FI was cracking up bc our budget has blossomed an extra $2000 since I joined BDW. LOL I love it hahaha.

 

Regarding the TTD I want to do it but like Kimber and Megan said I'll only do it if I can find a cheap cheap dress and I mean under $100 cheap. I mean my gown is only $700. I want to pay like 10% of that for a TTD dress.

 

My Bridal consultant asked me if I was doing TTD with my dress!!!!!!! I'm like you gotta be kidding me. I'm not walking around all day in a wet dress lol.

check the buy sell and trade forum on here, craigslist, and the knot has a forum where they sell stuff but i can't remember what it is called... Craigslist is funny because it is either dresses that are from the 80s with big puffy long sleeves or nice newer ones from brides whose weddings or marriages didn't work out so they just want to get rid of it, so very hit or miss but worth looking at every now and than

I really want to do a TTD shoot too. But like prettyhazardous said, "who wants to walk around all day in a wet dress". Our wedding port is the second stop, so if we do it, I think I'll do it at our last port. (That's assuming we'll be bringing our own photog, which I really am hoping for). And, I'll just use my dress...I've heard from close friends, the dresses come out pretty clean wink.gif

Ashley I completely agree!!.. uh oh you shouldn't have told me about the veils, I wasn't going to get one until they put one on while dress shopping and I liked it... but thanks for letting me know, I might cave and wear one for the ceremony

OMG I am the same way my mom maaaaaaaaaaaade me try on a veil and as soon as she did I'm like I'm don't like this one I want that one (I was pointing to one that another bride had on) and I treid it and loved it. And since then I've wanted one haha. So I'm wearing one for my ceremony and pictures but that's it. I think it'll be great since we're having a reliously sacred ceremony. My pastor is marrying us and I'm adding ssacred elements to the ceremony as well as possibly having communion. It'll be a big deal for us be my FI and I have never taking communion together because he's a musician at our church so we're never able to sit together. Ok I'm sooo long winded I'll go now.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
