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

Recommended Posts

I finally just figured out what TTD means! Ha! I have a question, as I am knew to this whole wedding planning thing. Do brides usually buy 2 dresses so that they can trash one of them? When do these photos take place? I love the one with the bride and groom in the water!

TTD normally happens a day or two after the wedding. I am doing it the day after. I know some brides on here use the same dress to do the TTD but most end up getting two dresses, one for your actual day and then a much cheaper dress for the TTD session. When you book your photographer just talk with him/her about the options you have with the TTD session. Hope this helps!

Can anyone post a link to this thread please? I did a search and didn't come up with anything. I have a chiffon dress and i'm not too concerned about what it looks like after the TTD shoot, but I do want to know how it holds up during the shoot. Thanks ladies.

I cannot wait to to my TTD session!!! But, I might be getting another dress simply because my wedding dress is so delicate I'm afraid it might get permanently ruined. Of course if it gets dirty there's nothing a dry cleaner can't get out. Who knows. I would really like to wear my actual wedding dress for the session but I don't want to ruin it!

Hi everyone, Im new to the TTD, its not very well known in the UK, I love the idea though. The photos i've seen of these are gorgeous. Do you do the TTD photos the same day as the wedding or would you get the photographer to came back another day for them? blush2.gif

Sometimes it's on the same day,but more often a day after. This way you don't have to be afraid of ruining it.
Trash the dress doesn't mean you have to go into the water. You can also go into the town, walk on the beach,etc.
If you do go into the salty water, I would suggest for you to at least rinse your dress with tap water afterward, as salt destroys fabric,rubber,metal,etc.

Something like this can still be a lot of fun and elegant

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
