      I always enjoy looking at TTD pic's and even though I'm not going to do it myself, it's not because I think it's disrespectful... what nonsense... Do what you want to do and just politely tell them to keep their negative comments to themselves.

        I agree with stamperamma, its your wedding, there isnt anyway to make everyone happy. Its something you may just have to turn the other way about and show them how great they are after you do them! good luck to you. :)

            This is SO true. My mom was so upset at the idea of a TTD session, but she was much better once it sounded like the purpose wasn't to ruin the dress. I used my real wedding dress and it's perfectly fine now. (She loves the pics by the way.)

            I also agree with others who have said to just stop telling details.

              Girl, it's your wedding and you should do whatever you want. Don't let anyone tell you other wise!

              If you want to do a TTD, then do it!

                I'm confused...who is it disrepectful too? The dress designer? I agree with the consensus here - no more details and do what you want :)

                  TTD sessions produce beautiful photos (I didn't do one as it wasn't in the budget for us) and if it's what you and your FI want, go for it despite what anyone else thinks :)

                    Ruin the dress? Honey, my dress was black at the end of the night. The next day we woke up at the crack of dawn and I wore it in the water and the surf totally cleaned it. I wore it again at our AHR, and people couldn't believe how perfect it looked.

                    Don't listen to any of them...just nod and smile and then do what you want. It is your day. :) But definitely trash the dress! The beach is the perfect place. It will just get clean. And if you don't plan on wearing again, then who cares, trash it! Get your monies worth! I sure did!

                    These aren't even my pro pics...I haven't gotten those yet. My dad came on the shoot with us and took these.

                      I would ignore them and do it anyway. If you don't do it, you may regret it.
