    Ugh!!! FORGET THEM, HOLLY!!!

    I had the EXACT same reaction from my OWN mother when I told her I was doing a TTD, but then after I bought a $75 dress to use instead of planning on using the dress she'd bought for me, she's come around and warmed up to the idea.

    I think a lot of people all across the country are just starting of hear of the TTD concept for the first time, and after they get over the initial shock, then they think, "hey, that sounds like it would be pretty cool...wish I would have done that!"

    YOU do what works for you and your FI, despite the meddling in-laws-to-be! It's YOUR day, YOUR dress and YOUR decision, my sweet!

      I just wouldn't even tell them about it. Why do they need to know? Just stop letting them in on all your plans and then maybe they will learn not to criticize so much!

        I agree with the other girls! They don't need to know, its your day, your dress, your pictures! If they bring it up again tell them you are doing so day after photos.

        Small minded people often can not be reasoned with!

          DISRESPECTFUL disrespectful to whom exactly oh, i am sorry, let's not upset Vera and Wang the Wedding Dress God's lest they rain fire and brimstone to haunt your children for the rest of the days to come!! what in the world

          seriously, unless your dress was passed down from your great great grandmother who had a desperate fear of the ocean - i am just lost here. Clearly, you even have a second dress so what is the deal? people are hilarious when it comes to weddings.

          TTD pics are always my favorite!!!! Don't forget to come back and post yours!

              Just tell them that its YOUR wedding not thiers and that you have big plans that you and your FI want to do. I am looking forward to doing a TTD session and also getting a 2nd dress for it... where did you find yours at such a great price?

                Hello Ladies,

                I have been really thinking about doing a TTD session and I LOVE all the photos with the water and beach etc. but I was thinking of maybe doing something different. I run a home daycare and I the love the kids that come and we are all like family, my FI loves them too and they love him! :) So I was thinking of doing a TTD session with them. How...well taking photos of them throwing paint on the dress, painting the dress etc. Of course I am not going to use my original dress.

                What do you ladies think of this idea? Or do you have different ideas I could do while still having the kids in it?

                Thanks! :)

                    I think that's a great idea! It will be such a unique photo with paint on your dress and all the little ones :)
