What is Trash the Dress and why do it?

Recommended Posts

I don't understand what all the brides are talking about with the TTD (trash the dress) talk. Why buy an additional dress just to trash it? Is it for photo purposes? Please explain. Thanks!

A trash the dress IS a photo session a lot of destination (and non) brides do in their wedding gowns. The dresses are rarely actually "trashed"..it's just an expression! Photos are taken in a lot of really "different" or exotic locations...on the beach in the water, in the jungle amongst the trees...the session really has a lot of creative possibilities. Most of the girls say their gowns end up coming out cleaner afterward than they did going into the session! Most choose not to even buy a second gown since nothing irreperable happens to their ceremony gown anyway.

 

Try this forum here on the board: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/f76/ Take a look around, there are LOTS of slide shows from other brides who have taken part in TTD sessions. They can be wildly romantic or even a lil' steamy. I'm planning to have one done the day after my wedding as well.

Someone once told me that it comes from the desire to get really cool photos without having to think about getting your dress messed up or dirty (as you would before the wedding) so after the wedding is finished, its not a concern so you can get it wet or dirty and it wont matter as much.

I will say ditto to what Soon2bMrsRosa said. While I knew what it was, my photographer said she describes it as a chance for her to use a really amazing location to get some incredible photos without having to worry about the dress getting wet and/or dirty. Generally, the dress is not trashed (unless the bride truly chooses to rip or ruin her dress), so she calls it a love the dress session...

You've gotten some excellent descriptions of what a TTD is. For me, as a photographer, I LOVE them! It is a chance to get some amazing photos, in a beautiful location, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere without having to rush at all to get the photos done. Some of my favorite photos at destination weddings come from the TTD sessions. Here is a TTD session I shot last fall.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
