Not Having TTD Pics Done?

Recommended Posts

Hi PrincessScorpion, I think it really is a personal choice thing. Some people really like the artistic nature of TTD, and they see it as fun photos they would like to have for years to come. It's not for everyone though, and many brides choose not to do TTD, or to do a more "tame" TTD, with just some cutesy in town photos or something. It really IMO is more about the artisitc photos you get rather than actually trashing the dress, which is why many also buy a cheaper second dress or just a plain cheap white dress.

Nope, not the only one! I wasn't interested in it in the least. I love looking at the photos and think they are among my favorite to view, but I knew it wouldn't be an enjoyable experience for me. Plus I blew my budget on my dress by spending about triple on it, so there was no way I was going to "trash" it! (Even though I've heard that it's often cleaner after the TTD.) So it's totally a personal decision and I can admit that it's not one that I'm upset about skipping.

I agree with Krista. When I first found this forum and started reading about this new concept, I couldn't understand why anybody would want to "trash a dress". But after seeing the pictures the girls posted, I realized it's not really about destroying a dress, it's about the magazine-quality pictures you get from a TTD session. Some of them are so unbelievably sexy, romantic, interesting, and fun! In the end I was totally won over and had one too. We had a great time doing it, the pictures are fun, and my dress didn't get ruined. If I had to do it over, I would do it again (except I would choose a better photographer as mine was not so great).

I've never heard of a TTD session before joining this forum either! I will have to look for pictures and examples before I can figure out whether we would want to do it.. I'm sure my fiance has never heard of it as well.

The closest I'm coming to TTD will be the photos taken immediately after the cermony. We are definately getting some pictures with our toes in the water and walking hand in hand down the beach and a few in the garden with the palms.. but I will not be swimming/climbing trees/etc in my dress :)

I would like to do a TTD session but it is not in the budget. Also I don't think my FI would want to do it either. I think I will try and get some cute pictures after the ceremony, but nothing too crazy.

i really really want to do a TTD in a cenote, but i'm still trying to talk my fiance into the idea. i don't think we'd ever really DO much with the pics, but it's just something creative, more artistic and less traditional.

not really into the BD shots thing, but that's just a personal preference.

if you're thinking you might want to do it, i'd say go ahead and do it - especially the TTD in your destination!

Thank you all for your input. I was starting to think I was the odd girl out. lol

I had not heard of it until my WC with the resort told me about it. I then later became a member of this site and really learn what it meant.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
