    My FI was with me and helped me choose my TTD gown. It looks nothing like my real wedding dress, so it really didn't matter.

      I also showed FI my TTD...it's nothing like my wedding dress so I didn't think it was a big deal. But I was also dying to show him my wedding dress...my friends and family would have killed me otherwise I probably would have.

          Hi Ladies!

          We're doing a cruise for our wedding and getting married in St. Thomas while the ship is in port. I hadn't considered doing a TTD shoot until I saw all of the gorgeous pictures from all the other brides in this forum. I think it's something I'd like to do (cost permitting) but I'm not sure if it's feasible for a cruise bride given the condensed timeline?

          Here's what our schedule looks like the day of the wedding:
          • 7:00am- ship docks and we'll be heading to pick up our documents immediately (should only take an hour tops before we're back on the ship)
          • 8:00am-noon getting ready on the ship
          • 1:00-1:30 beach ceremony
          • 1:30-4:00ish pictures, cake, champagne, open bar & hors d'oevres on the beach
          • 6:00 ship departs
          • 8:00 dinner in one of the private restaurants

          We've booked our photographer for 2 hrs. At what point would I fit a TTD shoot in? I'd be curious to know if there are any other cruise brides out there who have done a TTD shoot or who are considering it.

          Would love to hear from you!

              We are going on a separate honeymoon after the cruise and have considered doing the TTD then... cost permitting. Although, I am still trying to convince my FI.

              I had also considered doing it while we are in another port after our wedding... not sure if that would be an option for you.

                Do most people buy a second dress for a TTD session Also i've told people about wanting to do this; and they look at me like I have 10 heads!! THere responses have been "do you want do do that?" I love all the pics I see of people who have done the TTD. Is it just me, or has anyone else had reactions like that?

                  just share with us and you won't get that reaction some people don't get the concept or have ever heard of it.

                    I'm going to try to find a much cheaper dress that I like and wear that for our TTD pics... I don't want to ruin my wedding dress because I'll wear it for our at home reception later on.

                    22 booked... we're ready to go!!!

                      I am definitely buying a second cheap dress for my TTD, I know the concept is kind of lost but I love fashion and my wedding dress is going to feel like art in my closet. It serves no purpose after my wedding day except for it being something pretty to look and make me smile every time I see it :)
