Questions for the TTD'ers

Recommended Posts

So for those of you that have already married and TTD by taking a swim (especially interested in the ocean TTD'ers), I have a couple of questions.

 

Did the water really ruin the dress?

 

How long did it take for the dress to dry?

 

How long did your TTD shoot take (in general)?

 

Any info is much appreciated, trying to figure out if it will possible for me to do a TTD with my actual dress or if I should get a cheap TTD dress.

 

Thanks!

Ok, I have a weird question to add to that... Did the dress stink? Whenever I think of something that's been soaked in salt water, I think of stinky!

hmmmm good questions... I will be doing mine in the ocean....I'm only going to have photographer for an hour....at 9 in the morning and then have to lug the dress to hotel to dry (our flight leaves at 6pm) so hopefully it dries.

 

Erik says to just leave the dress there (it only cost 300 dollars and I won't wear it again) but sorry not a suggestion lol

I remember when Sarah posted about her TTD, she said it got sand it in, but other then that the dress was fine. IMO if I were to do a TTD I would have used my wedding dress.

Hmm, well I didn't go in for a full swim, but went into the water about waist deep.

 

The dress wasn't ruined, but it was definitely dirty (from the sand) and would have to be professionally cleaned. Since I had no plans on keeping my dress, it didn't really matter. But there was no discoloration or anything.

 

 

I had my dress dry outside our villa in the sun. Since it rained, it took two days. Again, Dress was still in great condition, just still had a lot of sand on it.

 

It didn't stink in a really bad horrible way, but it definitely had a "not so fresh" smelll to it. I assume though that would have gone away with a professional cleaning.

I want to do this as well, so to add more questions~ the photographer I am using has never done a TTD session, so how do I tell him exactly what I want. I think I will use my dress too!

Juan's first TTD session was with Sarah, and he did an amazing job. If your photographer knows what it is, then let them be creative on their own. If they haven't done one and doesn't know what they are, I would forward them some links so they know what you want.

Hi!

 

I did a ttd with Elizabeth Medina and it was so fun! Highly recommend doing it:) The photos from that session were my fave!

Denise and Mark

Anyway, it only took 2 hours and I actually bought a linen ttd dress cause my wedding dress was silk and silk and water do not go well together. The ERC beach was seaweedy so after I got out of the water some pieces were hanging on me. I did not notice an odor especially since the ttd dress session took place the day before we left Mexico so it was still wet when I rolled it up in a ball and shoved it in my suitcase. So 24 hours was not enough time for my dress to dry but it was not a big deal. I took my dress to the dry cleaners and got it back as perfect as possible.

What type of fabric is your wedding dress?

 

Best,

Denise

    • 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?
