If you want to post a thread about that dress that you bought to trash, or your photos once they are done - those certainly deserve their own threads!!
I have a few questions about TTD. I would LOVE to have pictures of us jumping in the ocean/pool but am a bit concerned. I don't want to actually ruin my dress but it's taffeta so I think this is inevitable when it comes to water right? I also don't want to do it and then have the dress sit in the hot, humid climate of the Caribbean for two weeks to have it cleaned. So i'm curious what you all are doing.
Are you just going to toss/donate your dress in the Caribbean?
Try to have it cleaned before you leave?
Leave it till you get home?
I got my actual dress off ebay for only $340 (retails for $850!) - so it's not like i'm throwing away money if I do ruin it. And I don't really know why I don't want to ruin it since it'll be stored and never used again (though I did see a cute idea where you have your kids picture taken in it every year). I'm just torn right now.

So now dose anyone know the answers to these questions?

I spoke with a photog that has done many TTD sessions and she said that the only thing that really truly ruins a dress is burning or tearing it...neither of which I'm probably willing to do!

And there is always the option of finding a dirt-cheap dress just for the TTD session. I just got a dress on ebay for $75, making me another 3 DRESS BRIDE (I also have a regular gown for the ceremony, and a shorter dress for the reception)! I thought it was worth it to avoid any drama over trashing my real dress!
