    I have noticed a lot of people on here that get 2 dresses - one for the ceremony and 1 less formal dress for the TTD from J crew or ebay or something. I have also read on here that the dress really doesnt get "trashed" - it is just sand and water and gets almost completely clean by rinsing it out or getting it cleaned.
    With that being said, this is my second marriage and I can honestly say that my other wedding dress just sat in the basement and collected dust... there really is no need to keep it . In my opinion, the photos with you wearing it are better than keeping the dress all beautiful in a box.... If I trash the dress , I am trashing the dress I think you ladies have convinced me to do it

      My ABSOLUTE favorite photos came from our TTD-- it was my favorite day of the WHOLE wedding! (yup, ceremony included. lol)

        I am getting a second dress. Is it crazy if I get this red dress for it. My wedding dress is Oyster color.

          Hey all

          We are doing a ttd session, as we weren't going to have a party back home on our return, so i wasn't worried about it at all - as i wasn't planning on bringing the dress back.

          But no we are toying with the idea of having a party when we come back - so i'm looking for some advice. My dress is costing me over $2900 - its my dream dress, so i'm not prepared to spend more money on 2nd dress. Sooo, my dress is silk - from past ttd'ers - will a silk dress clean up as new after the ttd session?! Or should I just forget it?! Luckily i'm not too bothered if you say no chance, as its not life or death that we have the party when we come back!

            My two cents is, if you like it, do it! You're the bride!

                I have to say that TTD is one of the things I enjoy photographing the most and the couples can really enjoy it with all the "stress" from the wedding day behind. I have to say YES TTD!
