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.

    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!  
    • I want to testify to the glory of Lord Masuka, the spell caster that helped me restored my marriage. It all started when my husband came back home acting weird for no reason, I tried to find out what was going on but he refused talking to me for days, he woke up one morning and say to me that he needs a break and he left without any clue where he's going, I was so shocked and devastated because I have done nothing wrong to him other than being a supporting wife, I cried all day, one fateful evening I saw series of comments on how Lord Masuka had restored collapsed marriages, so I decided to give him a try. He assured me that all hope are not lost yet, I followed the instructions he gave me and to my greatest surprise my husband who had left me for  months without a call came to my work place and begged for forgiveness, now we are happy family because of Lord Masuka.
