      This is really amazing. Congrats on getting it done. By any chance do you have a template that you'd be willing to share? Thanks in advance!

They only had a few chiffon flowy dresses so I decided to try them all one. Well turns out I loved one that I never would have imagined I would have liked. THe best part, it was 75% off of $450, so with taxes I paid only $120 for a TTD I love.

            Welcome to the October 2010 thread Bride Loving CJ!

            TTD is my dress for the trash the dress. We are going to do a photo session the day after the wedding on the beach and in the water so I wanted a second inexpensive dress for that as my wedding dress is silk and I didn't want to wear it in the water.

                Ok ladies, we are at the 3 month mark! I'm having a bit of anxiety on packing. I'm now starting to buy the OOT bag items and still need to buy chair bows, table runners and I also got a crystal curtain for the ceremony but now I'm starting to wonder how I am going to pack it all and then am I going to have to lug it with me on my honeymoon?? I was originally thinking of not packing the "extras" in a suitcase because then I'll have to lug around a half empty suitcase and instead putting it in some kind of box and I can toss in MX. What are you ladies doing?

                  Months ago I put out the word to friends and family that I need old suitcases for the trip. I've got 2 so far. I plan on paying the extra bag charge and leaving the suitcases down there. May send one home with my sister if I want to bring back any of my decorations or things. Hoping for one more donated suitcase or I'll buy a real cheap one at the Goodwill or something!

                    That's a great idea! I'm planning on just checking the boxes on the plane. My mugs will come in a huge cardboard box so I'm just leaving them as is and checking them. I'm taking decorations I can part with, so I'm leaving all the stuff down there that I can. We're doing directly to our honeymoon as well so I don't want to take that stuff with me.

                    TTD: Trash the Dress. For destination brides this involves getting in the ocean, ancient ruins, cenotes, all the fun places with your dress on and taking AMAZING pictures. :)

                      Thanks for explaining! That is a great idea. I have not purchased my dress yet but I will have to buy one fore the destination ceremony and another for the reception at home so I probably won't do a TTD shoot. But I'm you will have amazing pictures as that sounds like a load of fun!!!
