My question is How long did it take you dress to dry out. I can make up my mind when I want to do the TTD. We dont really want to get up the morning after the wedding, so Monday would be the next best day, but then thats where my problem comes in we would leave to come back to the states on Wed. Do yall think my dress would be dry by then?

We did our TTD on Sunday morning after the wedding and I soaked it. We left on Wednesday and the very bottom hem of my dress was still a tiny bit wet. I hung it up the entire time inside, but not outside. If you hang it up outside where it's warmer and breezy it may dry faster. My dress was some type of silk and only a single layer. There was no taffeta or anything else on it.

I think it will depend on what type of material your dress is made of and how many layers your dress has on whether it would dry if you do your TTD on Monday.

Thanks so much, my dress has a lace over lay but that isn't going to hold water. I will just have to remember to hang it outside.

This may be a stupid question but those who had had a TTD shot what do you do with your dress after your done? Do you have the resort wash it for you do you just dry it and take it back home with you.

Confused?

My dress had a lace overlay and I trashed it on Saturday and flew home on Monday. I didn't hang it outside at all, just rinsed it in the bathtub and hung it in the closet. And it was dry by the time we left on monday morning. VERY sandy... but dry! :)

 

And Mccrary, I just left it in the closet until we left. Then i wrapped it up in the pastic bag I brought it in, and shoved it in the empty suitcase that I used to bring down my OOT bag stuff. Worked lovely

There are so many pages in this thread! WOW! My dress is lace...do you think it's a bad idea to trash the dress at Dunn's River Falls? I'd hate to ruin it but there's no way I'm buying another dress!

i think it depends on the type of shots you want. you might be there and get in the moment and go for it, or you might just be really careful with the types of shots you want to get. i would definately hope for the best but prepare for the worst with lace...it's just so delicate!

I am planning on doing a ttd the day after our wedding. I am also planning on wearing my dress again at our ahr so I'm obviously concerned that my dress will be ruined and I won't be able to wear it. I have read through this entire thread and for the most part it seems as though the dresses came out like new! My questions is.....are there any brides who did a ttd in water and had their dress acually trashed so badly that they couldn't wear it again?

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
