    Wow, great tip! I would NEVER have even thought to put it in the washing machine! Although I guess at that point, there isn't really too much damage left to do! :)

      Hi

      My name  is Wendy and would like to ask if someone of you girls want to help the charity work I'm doing.

      I might be interested in purchasing your trashed dress as is, no cleaning or repairs required!

      I try to restore the dresses used in a trash the dress shoot back to good condition.

      I donate these dresses after restoring to people in need.

      They can't afford to buy a dress for their wedding and I like to help them.

      I like to work with clothes and it's a joy for me to donate the dresses when they are back in good shape.

      You can't imagine how happy these people are when they receive a dress for their wedding.

      I can pay a small fee for the dress + shipping.

      Donations are of course much appreciated!

      My e-mail to contact me is herwyn.w@skynet.be

      I hope that someone wants to help.

      Thank you

        Thanks for the feedback, ladies. My fiance and I decided to go ahead with a TTD session. I don't plan to spend that much on a wedding dress, so if it can be saved that'll be great. But if it's trashed, well I'll still keep it and all the stains!

          Hi!

          I had my dress dry cleaned at our Hotel in Mexico (Dreams Cancun) and they only charged me $70. Alot cheaper then dry cleaning my dress at home! Hope this helps.

            Give it a good rinse in water as soon as you get out of the ocean though.  Dont want to leave all that salt sitting in your clothes.

              On the subject of TTD, where are you ladies holding your sessions?  We're thinking about Dunn's River but are hearing more and more about Mahoe Falls.  Also looking into a ranch for horseback riding if anyone has any suggestions!

                Rhodes Hall Plantation, near Negril, has horse stables and is known for its horseback riding actitivies...see link below. For the TTD, you should also ask your photographer (if you've selected one)...they usually know good places to go.

                  Thanks for this! I will definitely look into it!  Really excited about the idea of doing some photos on horseback!

                   

                  Our photographers are coming with us from Canada, so they aren't familiar with all of the key areas! That's why I'm doing some of the research up front! We're going to hire a local driver who should know some areas, but don't want to leave everything until the day of!

                   

                  Thanks again!

                      oh, i never thought about packing a wet dress... I am doing my TTD the day before we leave as well.  Hmm.... but I am definitely doing it.  I think so far it is the thing I am most excited for!  People here think I am crazy, but all the pictures look so cool it is worth ruining my cheap $250 dress!
