***TTD (Trash the Dress) Thread - please post all of your questions here!

Recommended Posts

So, I REALLY love TTD photoshoots. Photography is my porn. However, my dress is silk (like a raw silk, not flowy) and it was $1200. To me this is ALOT of money since i only wanted to spend under $700 on my dress. So...i am torn between doing a TTD session and ruining my dress because it will likely shrink b/c it's silk. OR, do I purchase yet another dress from lightinthebox or wherever for $200 or so and just use that? OR, just do jungle shots and lift it up in the water ....

 

Did anyone do a TTD with a silk dress? If so, what happened? I question what I will do with it after the wedding anyway. From what i have heard drycleaning is expensive and dont know if i would sell it anyway, so why not. But then, if i can wash it and get money back, maybe that would be a good idea?

 

this is why i can't make a decision....circles.....any input?

I bought a second dress for $75 off Craigslist. If its in your budget I would do another dress. The silk will be really clingy I think you should find another fabric for the TTD again im not an expert. I sure other girls on here will be more helpful!

I think if you love photography that much there is no way you should not do a TTD shoot! I agree with the other girls, don't trash your original dress, just do some research and find a very similar cheap dress to trash. I found mine off dillards, so be sure to look at all options and it is a pretty darn close match to the style of my original. Good luck!

As the other girls noted already, you can find some cheap wedding dresses so that you can do a TTD session. However keep in mind that you don't always have to do a TTD in the ocean and they will still be great photos. Either way, if you love photography, I would figure a way to make it happen. :-)

I love the TTD pics as well. I found my ttd dress at David's bridal..they had just marked it down to $99 that day! I did not want to ruin my wedding dress so I bought another one...which is a totally diffferent style of dress so I get the best of both worlds...I'd say either way do the TTD session!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
