FI doesn't want to do TTD :*(
Posted 11 October 2009 - 05:52 PM
Except for the fact that FI is not budging on us not doing a TTD. I started planting the seed a lot time ago, and he knows how much it means to me, so I thought he would eventually give in. He usually does, especially when he knows something is important to me. I don't think it's a $$ thing, but I have also offered to choose a less expensive dress to do this. At first, he didn't want me 'trashing' my dress. Then came the excuse that he didn't want to get wet. The latest excuse is that he doesn't want to do another photo shoot the next day (I don't want to do it in between the ceremony and dinner).
I really don't see what the problem is- I am just asking for two more hours for us to play and cuddle in the water! This is my only chance to ever do this, and I know I will truly regret it if I don't. What do I do and thanks for listening to the vent!!

Maybe let it go for a bit and then bring it up again, show him some of your favorite TTD pictures and tell him how when you saw them you just saw the 2 of you doing them and how special you thought it would be.
Maybe if you can do a modified TTD, some pics on land and some just in the surf. My FI will just be wearing khaki's and a white shirt rather than his suit....to me that's fine...

anyway just keep talking about it, you have some time. Also I have heard other girls talk about the same thing and throw around the idea of just doing the shoot by themselves. I know that is probably not ideals but you could still get your trashing that way!
If it is something you really want though stick to your guns on doing it. It is a once in a lifetime thing and it really was so fun to jump in the pool and ocean in my dress!

Jersey Kitten- I brought up what you said, and told him that people would be photographing us all day- I don't think that had occurred to him
Andi- told him that he could wear whatever he wanted (not happy about that, but happy to get him there and willing )
jkcz0702- told him that it would clean the dress (which I think he was semi happy about, but thought I was trying to pull the wool over his eyes! haha)
Erin B- I think this was the last nail in the coffin-----when I mentioned doing it on my own, he was NOT having that. I think it really sealed in the fact that I wanted it more than life
And Preciousmi811-- I just heart your attitude!! I would have totally resorted to bribery!!!
SO in the end (after working really hard all day on a HUGE football Sunday) he told me to see if EM was available to do it the next day, and if not, to find someone else to do it!!!!!!! (he also said at the end that he knew I wasn't giving up
Thank you SOOOOO Much for all of the great points. Every day, I am so appreciative of the info and advice I get from this forum----- can't wait to show my pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hooray for persistence, and/or bride craziness!!!
