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.

It's a really cool way to "let your hair loose" after months or years of stress, planning your wedding day. This forum has inspired me to do one. If the budget allows, go for it. :)

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
