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

Recommended Posts

I tried using the links that were posted several pages back, but they don't seem to be working for me-- I am wondering what materials are best? I am thinking about getting a separate dress for TTD, but the one I like is satin and organza-- I am thinking the satin will be fine, but what about the organza- any thougths?

 

Thanks!

Tracy

i think a TTD would be so much fun! i'm trying to decide if i'd rather have it in the ocean or in a cenote. i think either one would be a great option! i am not the least bit concerned about my dress being ruined. and even if i have to toss it/leave it, hey - that's one fewer thing i need to carry home with me!

Oh I would pick a cenote for sure!!!!! I would have LOVED to do ours in a cenote but there just aren't any on the PV side of Mexico. so ocean it was for us!

BUT here are some cenote examples that i just LOVE. Del Sol does a lot of TTD's in the cenotes I believe and they are so BEAUTIFUL

To be honest I think we were still drunk for our TTD shoot in the morning. It was fun and I'm so thankful we did it. heck I would do it again for anniversary pics one day. I'm a sucker for TTD.

 

A Cenote TTD shoot is gorgeous! Great links Andi! Those are some of my faves too!

Ladies can you help me out? I'm searching for that thread where photogs discussed what makes a good TTD dress, and can't seem to find it anywhere! Well, actually I noticed it referred to earlier in this thread, but the link was broken sad.gif

 

I'm going dress shopping next week (yippee!!!) and definitely want to keep my TTD in mind. A lot of the dresses I like are tafetta, but I seem to recall some photogs saying that tafetta is not the greatest since it ends up being a bit of a balloon in the water!

 

I wonder if anyone has had a good TTD experience with a tafetta dress they could share? Also, I have noticed that there are different types of tafetta - wonder if that makes a difference?

 

Thanks!

So we just returned from our wedding and honeymoon. While the resort photographer was gone by the time I jumped in the ocean I had an informal session with my MOH. I wouldn't really say my dress is trashed but I think I should warn people who have beading with metal backings that they might end up with rust on their dress. I rinsed my dress in the shower and hung it out to dry on the balcony overnight. The drying wasn't an issue at all (all but a small part of the train was dry overnight) and I only noticed the rust had transferred from the beading to my dress a couple days later. My dress is a replica from China so it's probably not an issue with designer gowns but my advice is to check your dress and hand dry any beading with metal backings with a blow dryer. I'm taking it in this week to get it dry cleaned and hopefully it comes out. I'm not too upset if it doesn't, though I REALLY hope it does. I was hoping to wear it for our AHR but who knows now. It doesn't look too bad from a distance. Just a heads up...

I heard the other day that David's Bridal has a trash the dress rack of dresses. Has anyone bought their TTD from David's Bridal? I know they can offer some great prices on dresses, just thought it might be something worth checking out.
