    Mayan Riviera is a beautiful place. You don't need to do the overly sexy shots at the beach if you don't want to. Just take your photographer to the town for a few shots.

      I was wondering about it too, but we decided we might as well do it... at least that way there's no regrets!!

        I've been debating the same thing, if I want to do it or not. We're getting married in Laguna Beach and the ways are a bit too big(not too mention cold) I'm not really sure I want to be in the ocean, it's different then if it was somewhere tropical.

        Has anyone heard of having 2 dresses? Because the wedding dress I want is like a satin and I just would hate to ruin that dress, but there are other more beachy dresses that I love(just not as much as the one I think I'll buy) so maybe I could do the TTD with that?

          I actually bought an additional wedding dress for $50 from ebay. My mom bought my 'real' wedding dress, so I didn't want to 'trash' it. So I found a cheap, cute one to use instead. We're actually going to do our TTD session the Thursday before our wedding, so afterward we can just relax :)

            I say go for it!! As the other ladies said, you can go into town, or whatever makes you feel comfortable. I really want to do it, but will not for 2 reasons, 1. the FI is totally against me ruining my dress, and I could get another like everyone has said, but to my next reason, 2. We're planning on getting Elizabeth Medina, and I just cannot afford the second session!! Oh well, the price I pay (pun intended) for getting the photog that I adore

              That is one main reason we may not too. I am getting a photographer whose work I love but he is traveling cross country to shoot our wedding and I'm pretty sure that's going to kill our photography budget. What about having someone else do the TTD?
              I was thinking of having my bridesmaid who is also a photographer do it, since she'll be there and she loves taking pictures, why not?

                I say GO FOR IT! Your pics will be AMAZING, because they will show you and your soon-to-be-husband truly having the best time in not such a "posed" way as traditional wedding photos....I think you'll be glad you did! And why not do it to celebrate your new marriage the day AFTER the big day! Don't feel like you have to be too sexy if that's not your thing -- just do what makes you happy and comfortable.

                Best wishes, and please let us know what you decide!

                  Do it! Our ttd pics are by far my favorite over our wedding pics. And our shoot wasn't sexy at all. We are much more goofy than sexy. lol

                    Tracy, GO FOR IT! What's the worst that can happen, honestly? It would be an amazing time, and I think so much fun! If it comes out great, it'll be better than you expected, and if if you don't try it at all, you may regret the missed opportunity! You can't recreate these moments, or the environment! I've seen some beautiful, and TASTEFUL TTD pics, and my TTD photog, has really romantic elements in his photographs, whether the background be jungle and rocks, the beach, or anything of that nature! You'll decide what's best overall for you and your FI! Good luck!

                      Oh my goodness, I didn't even think of that!!!! That is SUCH a great idea!! I can get a cheapo dress to appease my love, and have a friend do the photos. You are my lifesaver!
