For those who have done TTD-just how trashed did it get?

Recommended Posts

I have a question for all you ladies who have trashed your dress-I'm wondering just how trashed does it get?

 

I'm hoping to do a TTD, and was considering getting a separate dress for it, but now I'm thinking about just using the actual ceremony dress so I won't have to deal with two dresses to buy and make alterations to. I don't think I'd do anything too crazy for it-just wear it into the water. So I guess I'm just wondering if it will be completely ruined after going into the ocean. Do you think it could be suitable for wearing again after drycleaning?

 

Any input would be much appreciated!

Ive not trashed a dress but there are lots of girls who have.Im just thinking i dont know of anyone who has posted there dress got ruined.Infact most have said the dress was cleaner.I have been to lots of wedding shops and fairs lately and all have offered the information that there dresses go in the washing machine on a 30 cycle.Im not sure if that can be said of silk dresses,but im sure youll be fine.I purchased a basque for £250 that retails for £3,000 at a wedding fair it was grubby so a good friend of mine laid it in a bath of liquid washing detergent and a toothbrush and it came out beautifully.We drip dried it on the hanger on the line sat back and watched it twinkle in the sunlight and if im honest breathed a sigh of relief but it worked

I'm so glad you posted this question. I am curious myself. I want to wear mine again for my AHR. I know it will need to get dry cleaned but I wonder how it would turn out after being soaked in waterhuh.gifhuh.gif? And with the sandhuh.gif?

Taylorbride-I'm hoping to do the same. I love my dress and I want to wear it as long as possible!

 

I'd love to see before and after pictures of dresses that have been trashed. Hopefully there will be some responses!

I think i've read another thread about this (can't remember the title), and most girls said it depends on the material, but I think the majority didn't have a problem getting it cleaned afterwards.

I would say go to a department store (Macy's, Norstrom...etc) and buy a cheap white dress so you won't have to worry and save your ceremony dress for the AHR.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
