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

Recommended Posts



check craigslist.  I bought a very nice dress, still with tags for just over 100.  When I told the girl why I was buying it, she asked for photos.  She found a dress she liked better and just wanted to recoup some of her dress price.

Where else can I get a moderately cheap wedding dress for the TTD? 

I'm not comfortable buying it on ebay...

Also, you might have to wake up earlier than that.  That last trash the dress that I did in Riviera Maya was in February and we had to be on the beach by 5:45 so we could start shooting at 6 and the sun was up by 6:30.  So make sure you check the actual sunrise time and plan to be there BEFORE that.  The sun goes up quickly :)

Alright thanks, I think we'll stick with the original plan then and get up early or just not sleep! haha.  The only sad thing is I'm not sure if we'll still get our breakfast in bed or not, we may have to skip that part and just do it when we switch resorts.

My photographer recommended doing it the second day after your wedding. We are also getting up at like 5am so we can get sunrise pics and he said we would be too tired and you don't really want bags under your eyes and i want to enjoy my first morning in bed with my new husband. Although this depends how many days you have after your wedding I suppose.

This is our plan too! I am looking forward to sleeping in with my hubby and the breakfast in bed the morning right after the wedding :)

We're doing a TTD at Dunn's River Falls after the wedding...I then have an AHR (at home reception) I wanted to wear it to also. I don't know if I'll have the room to take 2 dresses with me - has anyone worn their dress again after the TTD? Does it hold up OK? I'm not worried about it getting slightly ruined, I just want it to look OK in pictures again for the AHR.

Sorry if I missed the answer somewhere already:)

Thanks!!

Hi skadow, glad you are doing a TTD!  I absolutely loved doing mine-it was my favorite part of the wedding and the pics from the TTD are by far my favorite too :) Your pics from Del Sol should be fabulous!!

Yay how exciting!!  I was able to convince David to do it after showing him del Sol's slideshows.  Thanks to La Luna we can make it happen.

    • 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?
