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!!

Thanks!

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.
What a cute idea with your kid in the dress each year (what if it's a boy...lol)

Di- not weird at all! We're actually doing ours 4 days before the wedding. We originally did it this way so FI's Mom wouldn't try to intrude, but they ended up booking the same times as us- so we still have that to deal with! And I'm with you guys. I don't see me the next day being a very pretty sight :)

Bride and groom really like the idea of doing a TTD shoot, however bride is not so happy about using her wedding dress for this. I know others mention getting another wedding dress for this.

 

Does it even have to be a wedding dress? What about getting some different outfits and doing some shoots a day or so after the wedding? I know a lot of people do engagement photos so these would be like ... honeymoon pictures.

 

We are wondering if we could capture a similar experience yet wear different outfits ... maybe even some bathing suit shots on the beach.

 

Anyone do non-traditional TTD or post ceremony photos?

 

Thanks for your feedback!

I photographed a couple on their 10 year anniversary doing a trash the dress in Tulum! It was so much fun, and she just wore a normal dress. Not even white :)

did the dress you wore resemble your wedding dress?

 

or can it look completely different?

Click on the sticky note at the top of this forum. There is a huge thread on everything you ever wanted to know on TTD. From what I've read, it is a totally mixed bag - some wear their same dress or one similar, others wear a totally different dress and yet others wear non-bridal clothes. I don't think you can go wrong! Check out that post and I think you will find the answer to most of your questions. Happy planning!

    • 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.
