Trash the Dress....yes or no???

Recommended Posts

I'm on the fence about this, but leaning more towards no TTD session. While I think it's a creative idea and all the pictures I've seen have been beautiful, I'm just not sure if I even want to do it. I have plenty of time to think about it, so who knows what the final decision will end up being.

I feel the same way you do. The pics of others are GORGEOUS, but I just don't think it's right for us. And that's ok of course. to each their own.

(I mean, we're cute and all, just not in I'd-like-to-be-photographed-half-naked-under-water-shape) There's no way my fiance and I would even be able to keep a straight face, b/c we know it would look ridiculous. And who would we show the photos to? No one wants to see two chub-a-dubs rolling around in the sand with wet clothes trying to be sexy. I promise you...NO ONE wants to see that.

I love ttd photos. I bought a second dress for it because I am having an at home reception where I will be wearing my real wedding dress. I bought it at thelimited.com when they had their 40% off sale i think it came to about $50.

At first I wasn't sure as I definitley can't afford to buy 2 dresses, but this thread changed my mind!  These pics are so amazing and like many of you said, it really doesn't "trash" the dress anymore than normal wear & tear on your wedding day/night. 

 

Question though - is it that much more expensive to add on? I haven't even begun to look at photographers yet as I still haven't picked my resort, but will definintely want to include.  Especially since we havent and dont plan on doing engagement pictures.

 

Thanks again!!!  smile159.gif

It really depends on the photographer. Some photographers have packages that include it, since so many brides like it.

Mine is not including it in a package, but he includes a videographer, so we are just shuffling plans. The only places we were spending money not part of our wedding package was photos and a video (and attire), so it is worth it in our minds. The worst part is adding on another day pass for our photographer. 

We didn't do regular engagement shots either. FI's mom used to be a photographer; she took a few pictures for us in the woods by their home. I am going to get my mom or sister to take some on my parents' farm too, but neither has any photography experience, so I am sending them a bunch of pictures for inspiration and just going to cross my fingers.

I just think, you can always get pictures taken together. When else can you take pictures in the ocean and on the beach together in your wedding clothes?

"You can always get pictures taken together" - so TRUE!!!

 

and my FI's step-mom is a photography teacher at a local high school, so I contemplated asking her to take some engagement shots, just havent yet.  FI broke his foot the day after christmas, so we've been dealing with that situation ...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
