To TTD or KTD (keep the dress)...that is the question?

Recommended Posts

Iâ€ve noticed quite a few women looking for bargain TTD dresses, and I can understand that if youâ€re dropping a wad of dough on your wedding gown but I was wondering if there is anyone else trashing the actual wedding dress youâ€re exchanging vows in? Or is there just some unwritten rule that says you donâ€t?

Iâ€m thinking this for a couple of reasons: My dress is being custom made for me as a gift and all I have to buy is the material…so itâ€s extremely che….ahem... I mean reasonably priced. Also, even though my dress is extremely informal…I doubt very seriously that Iâ€d have another opportunity to wear it again nor do I think Iâ€d want to. I think that after

I get some fabulous shots of me in the dress itâ€s pretty much a done deal anyway. So aside from your dress being expensive why else would you not roll around in the sand in it?

I plan to do TTD in my original dress, but I don't plan on spending much on my wedding dress anyway. I could see not wanting to ruin it though for sentimental purposes or if it was being worn again at an at-home-reception. I have heard from some brides that their dress was fine after a TTD session, so it's possible it might not even be ruined.

Try using the search on the forum. The TTD to be used or not has been discussed SEVERAL times. You'll find on the forum that it runs probably about 50/50 w/ girls getting a new dress for TTD and girls actually using THE dress for TTD

Since I want to keep my actual dress to wear for my AHR, I think I will be doing a semi-TTD, if that is even possible! I'm sure I'll want to take some pics in the sand with my new hubby, sure, but any type of submerging in water is out of the question! Sand will shake out, and it will still be easy enough to get dry cleaned back to perfection at home!

 

Plus I already have in mind a second cocktail dress for the reception at the resort, so to buy another dress for the TTD would make 3 and that's a little much in my opinion!

I plan on wearing my actual ceremony dress. My mom bought my dress and I talked to her about it. Right away she said "It's your dress, and asked when would I wear it again anyway?" I had thought about wearing it at our AHR, but I am still not sure. Either way a few girls have mentioned that once they got it dry cleaned that it looked brand new. I am so excited...I heard that some of the best pictures are taking that day. Yay!

I'm planning on using the my actual wedding dress and I'll get it cleaned once I returned...

I just don't want to travel with two dresses :0) since we are already traveling with so much stuff.
