Is the TTD supposed to look similar to the ceremony dress or are people going for a completely different look?  Mine is large and ruffly and might not work out so well in the water.

I'm also planning on doing TTD pictures on the day after the wedding and using a second dress for this shoot. I have THE dress, but haven't found the second one yet...

 

I'd like to go for something flowy as well... anyone know where I can get cheap dress?

I was originally going to order a knock-off for the TTD, but decided to just wear my ceremony dress.  At first I was thinking that it wouldn't look that good in the water (it is a mermaid with ruffles at the bottom), but I realized it will be more special if it is THE dress.  Let me say that I am not that sentimental - I know I will not wear the dress again so it is more important to have great pictures of it.  I also have to say that budget was a factor.  I could have easily bought a knock-off and the fiance would never have known the difference in the finances, but I think it would have caused a problem when he saw the second dress and considered it wasteful.  So in an effort to save money and keep the peace, I chose NOT to buy a 2nd dress for the TTD.

I trashed my real dress.  I loved it so much that I couldn't imagine buying another one, and I knew I was never wearing it again.  The great thing was that after getting so dirty from the wedding, the ocean CLEANED my dress, and I actually wore it a third time for my AHR, without even having to dry clean it. It's still in pretty good condition too!

I am trashing my wedding dress. Even though I LOVE LOVE LOVE my dress, I will never wear it again so what am I going to do with it? A friend of mine was married in DR and said her dress come out perfectly clean after the TTD session (she stepped into the pool to wash the sand off herself - which is probably what washed the dress clean).

 

So the odds are that I will still have a clean dress after the TTD session but if I don't, I don't care. I want my TTD photos to be me wearing the original dress (because I love it so much). But hey, that's my preference. :)

Good to know!  I'm not getting 2 dresses - figured if it ruined mine, so be it - but knowing it MAY be okay is good enough for me! :)  Thanks, ladies!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
