    I ordered a cheaper one from Dressilyme. It's on it's way to me as we speak :)

    Couldn't bear the thought of trashing my gorgeous Alvina Valenta gown!

      Hello Everyone!

       

      Coming to get married in the Riviera Maya is great, but deciding on doing a Trash the Dress is even better!

      At Blue Lens Caribe we love Trash the Dress Session and we offer you the possibility to have your pictures on the beach, in a cenote or even both!

      Just have a look at our last Trash the Dress in a cenote on our blog http://bluelenscarib...rash-the-dress/

          I thought I had gotten a great deal on my dress by buying it at Macy's online. What I didn't realize is that alterations would cot as much as the dress. (around $250 each). So remember it is not always the cost of the dress, but if you need to have the TTD altered, it can get expensive, too. I plan on wearing my real dress for the TTD, because that's the name of the game. I also knew before buying I had this intent, so chose not to spend thousands on the dress.

            Great point and idea!

                I think the coming out cleaner depends on the material. I am having my alterations done at a local dry cleaners and they showed me a dress that was completely yellowed in the bottom 18 inches, even after attempting to clean it twice. They said it's not just the water, but the gunk in the sand that can stain the material. I didn't ask, but maybe it was LA beaches that damaged the dress. This was someone's reception dress, very silky and slinky. My dress actually says NOT to dry clean it, only spot clean with water and detergent. The cleaners said it has to do with the appliques, not the dress itself. So I guess my crystals might come off during the TTD.

                  I got a cheaper dress for the trash the dress session. I had found one I liked in the bridal store and found it second hand on ebay in my size for way cheaper!
