Sarah & Jeff slideshow (trash the dress photos)

Recommended Posts

OK, so after I watched the slideshow once, i convinced Shawn to watch it with me, in hopes that he would want to do it someday. He HATES photos and I think getting wedding photos will be like pulling teeth... however... he really liked these! And I think the idea of throwing me in the ocean excites him! He was very funny at first though. He was like "I am NOT going in the ocean" and that was followed by "she must be getting so dirty!!!" and that was followed by "you will ruin your dress!"

He's so funny. It's not like I'm going to wear my dress to church every sunday! It's a one time deal!

I'm pretty sure he was sold when the rock pictures showed up though... and by seeing the pure glow in my face!

So what do you girls think about me doing a few pics in the water on our wedding day.. Granted the bottom of my dress with get wet, but I don't care It will be hot as h*ll that day and it might actually feel good? I will never wear my dress again, and according to Sarah it doesn't ruin your dress, maybe gets a little dirty but it would be fine I'm sure..

Tammy, if you're all done with your events for the day I say go for it. My dress has no lasting effects from the TTD session. There was a TON of sand in it, but it did not get dirty at all. But, it was very uncomfortable to drag around, so if you're going to have to have dinner, dance, or do anything in your dress afterwards I wouldn't do it. What about just doing it, then changing for the rest of the evening's events- or at least having the option to change?

Great pictures Juan! Congratulations! It is sooo romantic and hot! I would love to have a TTD session too! I will talk to Jed about this and perhaps JUan we can do it two days later since I know you have a wedding the next day after mine? We'll definitely look into our budget!

 

Sarah these pictures are amazing. I am so glad you have this so you and your husband can look back many many years from now and relive this moment!

I am seriously considering adding this to our photography, but I guess I should see if our photographer has any experience with this...or I could alwasy hire Juan for the day after for a few hours...

 

Oh, the wheels never stop turning!

 

Congratulations Sarah, you look beautiful!

Thanks Jill, and, it depends on how much you trust your photographer, but Juan had never done one before- so they don't necessarily have to be experienced to be good. But I'm biased- I think everything Juan does it great...lol

Good point, our photographer is coming from Santa Fe (long story), so I'm 99.99% certain she has never done anything like this before! But I can imagine she would be open to new ideas...

Or I could just hire Juan and have two photographers!

So Sarah, if your dress didn't get dirty, have you had it cleaned yet? Keep me posted on how it comes out, because I would probably want to just use my dress and not worry about having another, but would still want to know how clean it will look.

I'm not even planning to have that dress professionally cleaned. I paid $99 for the dress, had $140 of alterations done to it, and I have no intention of spending any more, since it's not my real dress! I washed it out well in the tub and that's all I plan to do with it. I figure my someday daughter (or my niece if I never have kids) will have fun playing dress-up with it...It honestly isn't dirty at all- there are a few grains of sand that somehow got between the lining and the main material on the bodice that I can't figure out how to get them out, but I don't know if the cleaners would do that anyway...

Amazed at all of your comments, thank you girls!

Your dress will never stain from the sand or the sea water so dont worry about it, unless you never take the leftover sand that could get stuck in the dress out and you would also have to wash the salt water from the dress, if you do those 2 steps you will have it in perfect condition. The only kind of dress that could get messed up would be like the dress that tammy had (host) because it is a litlle more delicate and it could tear but never stein.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
