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

Recommended Posts

I went back and forth on whether I wanted to do it and if I wanted to get a new dress to it. I ended up doing it the day after the wedding and used my wedding dress and I am sooo glad I did! It ended up being the most special and fun thing we did! My dress wasn't huge and didn't get too heavy and after we used those beach showers to wash off and the dress got pretty clean!! I haven't gotten my pics yet but im sooo excited to see them. I know they'll be amazing. I would definitely recommend doing it. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity!!!

I really want to do it but I need my dress for my AHR.  I'm going to get something similar and much much cheaper for TTD photos.  For those that are using a 2nd dress, are you going with something similar or totally different from the wedding dress?

I am definitely doing a TTD.  I love the idea of taking a beautiful white dress out of context.  I don't want to do the typical beach and water shots, but something more exotic as well!  I think "trash" is improper because you arent really trashing it!  A lot of brides have said the ocean cleaned up their dress after the reception and they just showered off the salt water and it looked great!!!!

its the thing im most looking forward too (besides getting married) lol....imagine posting these pics up throughout your house in black and white! in my opinion, these are so much nicer then typical wedding pics!!!

 

i think you should def do it. Ive gotten a second dress for this though, only because im doing an AHR so if you want to find a second dress, look at davids bridal great prices

i should have read before i posted lol, ive gone with something totally different than my actual wedding dress. my real dress in ivory with crystals a train and hand made flowers....on the other hand my TTD is RED one shouldered still looks like a wedding dress(well it is a wedding dress) i wanted to go with a romantic tropical feel...with a touch of exotic....the reason i did red is because my wedding dress is traditional...and as much as i love the traditional look, my FI and I are not your typical type lol

 

I would go with a different look than your wedding dress, let us know what you choose!

    • 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.
