    To be honest, "they" always say that about taffeta, satin and ALL of the common wedding dress fabrics; which most of them are what? Taffeta or satin. lol

    I've seen sooooo many ladies talk about their dress being fine after going into the ocean. I just can't see it being "ruined" by water, regardless of what the almighty "they" say. Too much evidence to the contrary. I think a LOT of the anti-water legends are about it weakening the fabric structure anyway..meaning weaker fabric can rip/tear/loosen at the seams faster than dry cleaned fabric. Oh well.

    But you have to do what you are comfy with. If I was all that worried about the darn thing, I definitely wouldn't take a chance with it. Lucky for me, I'm not...I do plan to sell it if I can afterward since it's brand new (well, ok..both of mine will be brand new, but trust me, I'm only having two dresses because I WANTED both, not because I'm worried about ruining either). If it doesn't look good/hold up after the session, oh well...my girls can play dress up in it for the next ten years.

      I agree, I think all fabrics can hold up to water...however the chlorine and/or salt water has the potential to weaken the fabric. That is more or less if you never rinse or clean it afterwards. I have had a silk dress that was squirted with water at a party (long story) anywho, at first it left a stain but I got it cleaned and now you would never know.

      As stated previously, I would only do what you are comfy with. Otherwise you will not be able to let loose, you will be too worried about your dress. I am going back and forth on using my ceremony dress or just getting a cheap but cute dress.

        Uggh, I really want TTD pics, but I also want to wear my dress after the photos are taken. I guess I could: a)schedule a second photo session, or B) change out of my dress for beach pics (into a ttd dress), then back into it for the reception...? What makes sense with here?

          [QUOTE=Dmitri_Markine;846794]Trash the dress doesn't mean you have to go into the water. You can also go into the town, walk on the beach,etc.

          this is what my photographer did. We went into Montego Bay for the TTD session. Specifically, we went to the market with all of the really bright colors, then we just walked down the main street. I haven't seen the pictures yet, but I suspect they are going to be really amazing. We also took a lot of pictures right at the water's edge.

              Kinda confused about your question -- do you mean showing your dress to your FI if you're having a TTD session before the wedding?

                DH saw mine but it looked nothing like my actual wedding dress. We're untraditional...we actually did TTD the morning of our wedding day

                    I will not be showing him my TTD dress before the wedding only because it is almost identical to my real dress. When I got it though I really wanted to show him but I restrained myself and he even said he DID NOT want to see it because he wants to be suprised when he sees me walking down the aisle. It is even at my aunt's house so if he goes in my closet he can't see anything he shouldn't.

                      I showed my DH my TTD dress because it wasn't that big of a deal to me. As long as it wasn't my wedding dress I didn't care.
