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

Recommended Posts

OH MY GOSH these pictures are AMAZING!!!

Thank you so much for posting them!

 

Do the dresses ever actually get wrecked in the water? I have heard varying reports. I know that some girls go all out and actually trash the dress, and some do not... can you be in the ocean or cenotes and "accidentally" trash the dress? Does that happen?

I want to wear my own dress... but was also planning on wearing it to my AHR a month after!

I also wanted to restate that it doesn't have to be a "trash" the dress, when we're in cenotes it's often more like a "rinse" the dress, the cenotes are fresh water and do little or no damage! At Del Sol, we know that your dress has a lot of meaning to you and we will go as far as you like or as gentle as you wish, if you end up just wanting photos around the jungle and cenote without actually getting in the water, that is totally cool! Many of our brides do bring a second dress, you can buy them second-hand, have them made to look like your designer gown or go with something completely out there. Some brides brought multiple dresses to wear, not just their wedding gown, we have such fun with bright colors too! This is about creativity, freedom and expressing yourself with your partner in an awesome shoot you will always remember! We've never had a bride express regrets, only joy at a fun day and photos they treasure.

 

Here are some of our recent sessions...you can see the full slideshows at these links:

Hi Peach!

So glad you like the photos, thanks for the kind feedback! Most brides do not "totally trash" the dress, they get wet and if it's a beach shoot, they get sandy, but nothing that can't be washed out. Very very rarely do accidents happen, but when dealing with nature, sometimes you just can't predict it, a hem caught on a rock for instance, nobody can guarantee that the dress will come out unscathed, but it's generally the case that everything is all right. :)

Perfect! Thank you so much for answering my questions. 

And I LOVE the photos. I just think the cenote photos are so unique and incredible.

From what i hear, most women don't TRASH the dress per say, but have it cleaned after they roll around in sand, get soaked, etc. my friend had the resort clean hers and it looked brand new again. Just depends on what you're comfortable with! But I definitely don't plan on getting rid of mine!

Hi Ladies - I've been considering whether I should buy an inexpensive dress to trash for the photoshoot (found one for $450 including tax and alterations) or to wear my actual wedding dress. I think I might stick with my own dress because it's special and way more beautiful than the inexpensive one. However - after returning home, we're having a local wedding reception and I'm a little worried that my dress might be too dirty for the reception back in town. Has anyone done this before? Do you guys have any suggestions? I don't think if we'll be able to travel to any cenotes. But I was really excited about getting into the ocean or swimming pool at least. Any feedback appreciated!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
