We hired HDC for the wedding, but I'm still on the fence about a TTD session. I would love to see your pictures whenever you get them!

My Fiance and I are also doing a TTD session! I had to convince him to do it because he thought we would drown (especially after hearing all the stories of brides being swept away and drowing). I assured him it would be fine! I just realised that maybe I should think about what kind of material is best for TTD.  My dress is organza and I'm not so worried about it being 'trashed' as I would get it cleaned when we get home anyways.  What's everyone else's experience with their dresses materials in the water and sand?

Hi! My dress had a chiffon overlay on top of satin (and a bit of crinoline). It was TOTALLY fine. We did ours on the beach, then rinsed off really well in one of the beach showers, wearing the dress, then went in the pool for underwater shots. After, we filled our hotel jacuzzi tub, put the dress in, and kind of swished it back and forth, just to rinse off the chlorine mostly. Then we hung it in the shower to dry. Like everyone says, it looks cleaner than it did after the wedding.

I am wearing it for our AHR this Saturday, and then I will have it cleaned and put away.

So I do not know about organza, but my materials were absolutely fine.

I love the idea buut don't think we will be doing it, as it will add a big extra cost to the wedding. I'm still recuperating from the shock of how expensive photographers are!!

I hired HDC and did the TTD session, and I actually love those pics more than the other pics! My dress was fine after just rinsing it out in the shower and laying it outside in the sun, then I just shook the excess sand out! It was as good as new! If anyone would like to see my pics you can find me on Facebook under Heidy Martinez :) I have all the pics there under Ceremony, Reception and then TTD. You can see how HDC works!

I would recommend that everyone get trash the dress photos! We paid $600 for a 1 hour session, but it was totally worth it. Our TTD pics turned out to be my favorite pics we got. It was really fun to do too. The experience is worth it! Now we have pictures that are beautiful enough to blow up as pieces of art too!

 

As for the dress, I got a polyester dress from Davids Bridal in their $99 sale. The only real similarity to my actual dress was the sweetheart neckline. It was perfect though! The polyester didn't absorb water which made it easy to work with. It also worked really well in the water and mad for pretty pics.

 

If you don't want to spend the extra money on a second dress, everyone says that their dress comes out fine after a good rinse. I was just too nervous to try that....

 

My two cents though.... Every bride deserves to get a beautiful set of pictures like this! TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    • 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.
