I need your opinions!

Recommended Posts

Ok here's the thing...

 

I've seen pictures of brides in their dresses in the water and I think they're such beautiful pictures. I really want to do those pictures but I wanted your opinions.

 

Should I buy a second dress (something cheaper that I don't mind ruining) to change into and wear into the water?

 

OR

 

Should I just suck it up and go in my dress? I won't ever be wearing the dress again and I think it would flow better with the pictures if I wear the same dress in all of them.

 

Any opinions are greatly appreciated!

Those pictures are called TTD (trash the dress) Arent they great! I definately plan on doing one as well!

If you dont mind wearing your real dress then you should wear that one.. your right about the never wearing it again thing but maybe you want to save it or hand it down to someone? Whatever you decide im sure it will be perfect!

Haha, yeah, the lingo is a bit much at the beginning. TTDs are very common on here, because so many brides are in such a beautiful setting. If you search around, you can see some beautiful pictures from them. The below photog has some that I like:

As far as wearing your dress -- I'm planning on wearing mine! But if your budget can afford a second dress, it's always fun to get to pick out another one.

I wanna have a heart attack everytime I see all those beautiful dresses in the water. I get the idea and the pictures do turn out wonderful but I don't think I could ruin my wedding dress. I'm also cheap so my first thoughts are "how much did that cost and why are you ruining it?". So if I was going to do this I personally would buy a cheaper dress for your TTD pics. However if your wedding dress wasn't that expensive to begin with you might be ok with using it. I think this is really a personal choice on what you would feel most comfortable with.

I am having the same problem- I really really want at least of couple shots fo us at least splashing a little bit in the water ( i mean why the hell not right?) but I actually AM wearing my dress again at our AHR a couple months after we get back. Will the salt water really ruin the dress? probably not right?

Man- so many decisions!!!

I am definitely planning on doing a TTD session. I've decided to just use my one dress. Like you said I'm not planning on wearing it again. Plus...depending on the fabric of your dress you could still get it cleaned. You'd be suprised what dry cleaners can do these days!

Personally, I don't feel the need to trash my dress when i get hitched in Hawaii, but i do like the pics of the girls who do. I say if you really like the pics, the pics are what you are really going to have forever, the dress will be put in the back of you closet for years and years and your future daughter will want her own style gown anyway! You'll have tons of pics of your dress dry anyway. I say TTD! Plus, it gives you an excuse to purchase/wear a more comfy, summery, party dress later. :)

    • 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 for Kids.  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    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • 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.
