Seperate TTD dress???

Recommended Posts

So prior to finding my wedding dress, I was all about "trashing" it.  I have the photographer booked for the shoot and everything.  However, when I found "the one", the thought of throwing it into the ocean upsets me a little. 

I'm torn as to whether or not I want to buy another dress or just suck it up and do it.  The point is, that you are really going to only wear your dress once in your life so who cares right?? 

What to do?!

I had been planning on buying another dress for TTD...I even started looking to buy one. Recently, I started thinking...why would I buy another dress to trash? I am going to be extremely excited for another excuse to wear my dress again! I love it, so I will llove wearing it again. Chances are, I'll be able to clean it well enough and it won't be wrecked. It'll just sit at home in my closet for the next 30 years anyway!! So I've decided to just wear the same dress again. Mine isn't too heavy so it won't be impossible.

I just did my trash the dress...with my dress! I never planned on wearing the dress again, so why not! Then you have these wonderful memories from your dress. And to be very honest, unless it's a very delicate fabric, it will be fine. My dress was all spanish lace, and it was cleaner after jumping into the ocean and pools than it was after dinner the night before! LOL

Big thing, after it's been in the ocean/pools, stand in the shower and run fresh water over it, getting all the clorine/salt out, once you take it off, dry it out completely! I left ours on our balcony and it was dry within the day. Then I wasn't worried about moisture wreaking it later.

Whatever you choose, do it! The TTD was so much fun pinkie.gif

Do you really think the dress will be okay after jumping in the ocean with it.  My daughter's designer, Alvina Valenta said not to take the dress in the water.  Maybe she can buy a cheap dress for just the time they are in the water and take the pictures with the real dress just on the beach and not in the water.  Any suggestions would reallty be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

My dress is Alvina Valenta also... murmel is right about how the memories may be better than having the dress just sit in the closet for 30 years.....  i still need to think about this though

I agree.  I think it's best to use the real dress.  How bad can the water ruin it? You aren't going to wear it again and I bet it would make better pictures.  However, my photographer is leaving (we are bringing her) early the next morning so we won't be able to do that. I am thinking I still want to do it before the wedding, but if so, I'll have to get another dress and something totally different because I don't want my fiance to see what I'll look like before the wedding day.   Do you think it would be weird to do it before the wedding day?

If you plan on selling it, or are truly worried about ruining it. Then get another cheap dress. Like I said I was not worried about wreaking it, or even wearing the dress again,...so why not! You also don't have to get the dress wet for a TTD. Why not walk down the road to a local bar or wharf, and take some pictures. The whole point of the TTD is to get some great pictures in a different location, when both the bride and groom are relaxed and just looking to have fun!

What time is your wedding? Could you do some pictures with your photographer at night? Jump into the pool with your guests after dinner? (and then put on a cocktail dress for later?) Good luck and have fun.

I was all about trashing my dress too, but then as soon as I found my dress, I can't picture trashing it.. so I'm planning on buying a cheaper dress.  I'm getting married a month after you, so I'm actually planning on looking for a white dress when prom season is dying down.. I'm sure there will be plenty of sales.. the way I see it, some people change out of their wedding dress for the reception.. I'm going to wear mine the whole day for my wedding.

I purchased a 2nd dress for my TTD session mainly because I intend to wear my actual wedding dress for my AHR but also because I can't imagine ruining it! The dress I did purchase has the same basic shape as my wedding dress so once wet, I can't imagine them looking much different anyway!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
