TTD Do or don't?

Recommended Posts

I'm having a huge dilema as to whether or not I should do a trash the dress set of pics. We are getting married in October, so at least I have time to ponder. I really loved the dress I picked. Granted I will only wear it once, but if I did a trash the dress series of pics what could I do with the dress afterwards? Can they even be cleaned? Also thinking about maybe getting a second cheapie dress for these pics. Love to hear from brides who have done TTD and find out what you've been able to do with your dress afterwards.

A lot of brides get a second less expensive dress for the TTD session. I think that David's bridal has a $99 special on certain dresses.

 

I say go for it! the pics are awesome!

If you do a search for TTD sessions you will see lots of reactions from past brides. I don't think there has been one person that regretted doing it. Some of our favorite shots are from our TTD session and yes, dresses are almost always as good as new after being drycleaned.

Do it. The only pictures I ended up even liking were from my ttd, not my wedding. And, your dress is going to get dirty on your wedding day. Despite the name of the photo shoot, your dress won't be trashed afterward. It'll be washed. :)

It depends on what your dress is made of, but you may be able to clean it afterward....I just bought a sample dress for $99 and it was a bit dirty. I actually ended up cleaning it by myself and it looks amazing. I cleaned it in the bath tub with delicate laundry soap, shampoo (to get most of the oil out) and a tooth brush. I was so amazed with how well it turned out.

 

So....you can always choose to clean it yourself if it's too dirty!

I'm having a similar dilemma. I really want to do the TTD, however, we are having an AHR a few months later and I was planning on wearing my dress. Should I just do it and if it isn't clean-able get a second cheap dress for the AHR or should I get the cheap dress for the TTD and play it safe?

You will completely regret it if you don't do a TTD shoot! Even though I was sick that day, I liked my TTD pics better than my wedding pics! I just felt that my TTD pics came out better just because of the fact that I was much more at ease because the wedding was over and I was able to be silly and playful in the pics (much more natural). Plus, if you don't like the idea of getting your dress wet, you don't have to. Just take pics everywhere else but in the water. Or like others have mentioned, buy a cheap dress and trash that instead. I wore my wedding dress for the TTD shoot and it's still chillin in a trash bag. I just haven't taken it to the cleaner's blush2.gif

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
