    My FI out of the blue yesterday told me he wants to take pictures at Dunns Falls, so he's totally in!!! Wearing a wedding dress in a water fall will be awesome!

    Does anyone know if Taffata will hold up in water? My wedding dress is made of it, and if it would dry okay maybe I could still wear it for the AHR. I'm curious what materials are best so they last through the shoot!

      I got that reaction too, I asked my mom is I could use her old dress seeing as I am the last to marry in my family and its not like it will ever be used again anyway. She thought about it at least.... my dad almost had a heart attack... lol Anyway I did get a second cheep dress, but after talking to the lady at the bridal store there seems to be no reason no to use mine. She says it will be fine just get it dry cleaned and I'll be able to wear it at the AHR too!!

        Talk to the girls at the salon they were a big help for me. It sounds like silk and I forget the other material are the only 2 that doesn't do so well getting wet.

          I think the taffeta would do fine in water, but look at this post from one of the forum photographers about the material floating during the TTD sessions.

              I dont know about the rest of everyone else, but im going to use the same dress that Im getting married in. I love the way it fits and i think it would look amazing for the ttd photos.. besides its our day, no reason to spend extra money on another dress when i will never wear the first one again anyway right?!! Thats the way I look at it!
              though sometimes I wish I could have two dresses!! :)

                At first I planned on a second dress for TTD but have decided against it. I'm never going to use the first one again, it's absolutely gorgeous and I want as many pictures in it as possible! So why not in the water or where ever we end up.

                Part of me is a little nervous after all the money I spent but it's not like I'll ever have a reason to put it on and who knows, it might survive and then I can give it to someone else for their TTD.

                Oh...and my mom's reaction to the idea of TTD was classic. She almost fell out of her chair and asked what on earth would make me want to do that in my wedding dress.

                    yeah I think i'll probably end up getting a cheaper dress to do the TTD. But then again, that is what i'm thinking today...tomorrow it may be a different story :)
