Recommended Posts

I have to agree......

 

I personally learned from experience.  This is my second marriage and my first wedding dress is preserved in a box under my bed and no one dare to wear it since it is so outta style now.......

 

So I am gonna Trash My Dress and honestly leave it at the resort...........LOL

 

Sounds terrible I know..........but I wont wear it again smile159.gif

I think a good question I want to ask regarding the cleaning bills and what have you....why are you saving your dress? 

 

Cleaning bills can range in the $300's where I live for a wedding dress.

 

I chose to do a trash the dress with my wedding dress because I honestly couldn't figure out what to do with the dress after our wedding.  My mom had three daughters and NONE of us wore or are going to wear her dress.  Instead, my husband and I tore apart the dress after the TTD Session to make a christening blanket for our future little ones.

I'm still unsure about trashing my wedding dress. I spent an insane amount of money on my dress, (I don't regret it one bit, I love dress!) but I just can't picture myself going into the ocean with it... and I can't seem to find anything that looks like THE dress at a cheaper price...   I guess it kinda has to look somewhat similar to the dress that I wear on the wedding day.  Does it?

I'm still debating... this is the hardest decision!

Wedding gown preservation kits are around $150 and they will clean the dress and preserve it for you.  I would be more worried about the damage to the dress in the ocean from the salt, and wear and tear on it (loose beading, etc).  If the dress is satin or taffeta I would recommend running it under tap water in the tub after the TTD session and then when you get it home immediately getting it cleaned or preserved.  I would not recommend doing TTD with a silk dress...it will ruin the fabric if you are planning on using it again.  Hope this helps!

My FI and I are going to be doing a TTD in Jamaica the day after our wedding. I want to purchase another dress just for the TTD because I will have to wear my ceremony dress at our AHR.

 

Has anyone wore a short dress for the TTD or is a longer dress recommended?

I have looked at lots of TTD dresses and it seems most go with long dresses, but there are some shorter dresses.  Its your TTD and you are allowed to use whatever length, color, or style or dress you want!!

From what I have read the salt water can actually clean your dress from all the sand and dust. As I am planning on keeping my dress, I'm hoping this is the case!
