    check craigslist.  I bought a very nice dress, still with tags for just over 100.  When I told the girl why I was buying it, she asked for photos.  She found a dress she liked better and just wanted to recoup some of her dress price.

    Where else can I get a moderately cheap wedding dress for the TTD? 

    I'm not comfortable buying it on ebay...

      Also, you might have to wake up earlier than that.  That last trash the dress that I did in Riviera Maya was in February and we had to be on the beach by 5:45 so we could start shooting at 6 and the sun was up by 6:30.  So make sure you check the actual sunrise time and plan to be there BEFORE that.  The sun goes up quickly :)

      Alright thanks, I think we'll stick with the original plan then and get up early or just not sleep! haha.  The only sad thing is I'm not sure if we'll still get our breakfast in bed or not, we may have to skip that part and just do it when we switch resorts.

        My photographer recommended doing it the second day after your wedding. We are also getting up at like 5am so we can get sunrise pics and he said we would be too tired and you don't really want bags under your eyes and i want to enjoy my first morning in bed with my new husband. Although this depends how many days you have after your wedding I suppose.

          This is our plan too! I am looking forward to sleeping in with my hubby and the breakfast in bed the morning right after the wedding :)

            We're doing a TTD at Dunn's River Falls after the wedding...I then have an AHR (at home reception) I wanted to wear it to also. I don't know if I'll have the room to take 2 dresses with me - has anyone worn their dress again after the TTD? Does it hold up OK? I'm not worried about it getting slightly ruined, I just want it to look OK in pictures again for the AHR.

            Sorry if I missed the answer somewhere already:)

            Thanks!!

                Hi skadow, glad you are doing a TTD!  I absolutely loved doing mine-it was my favorite part of the wedding and the pics from the TTD are by far my favorite too :) Your pics from Del Sol should be fabulous!!

                  Yay how exciting!!  I was able to convince David to do it after showing him del Sol's slideshows.  Thanks to La Luna we can make it happen.

                      Just wondering where you guys got your TTD if you didnt use your own...I am having such a hard time finding one!


                      Today I marry my bestfriend, the one I laugh with, the one I love.
