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

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about doing the Trash the Dress.  I will get a second dress just because I am pretty nervous about messing up my dress.  I am wondering what are the grooms wearing in your TTD???

I'm really wanting to the TTD but I'm planning on wearing my dress in at our AHR so it makes me really nervous. I'm debating getting a second dress.

We did a Trash the Dress Session and it was amazing.  I used my dress and after having it dry cleaned, it is like new!  NOT RUINED AT ALL!  I haven't seen all the pictures yet, but have received a sneak peek from our photographer :-)

I would like to do one, but like some of the other girls i'm wearing mine for the AHR, so if i do, i'll probably get a different dress…more flowy. I have to sell my FI on the whole idea though.

hi everyone,

 

hoping you can share some advice on what you wore under your dress for the session?  did you wear regular underwear/bra, or did you wear a bikini?

I am getting married in June 2014 in Mexico and I am doing a cenote trash the dress session.  I don't care about trashing my dress b/c once I return home I am probably going to have it professionally cleaned and donated to charity.  I feel like we will look the best we ever will in our life (we've been working out hard) and it's a prefect opportunity to take professional, artistic pictures with me and new hubby.  If you are not thrilled about "trashing" your beautiful gown just get a white slip dress or a cheaper dress.  My best friend could not bare to put her wedding gown on the day after her wedding in Mexico b/c it was a huge beaded glass gown and she decided on something she had packed with her - it was a white, long, tight cotton sexy bathing suit cover up…. her picks came out AMAZING.   Whatever you chose will be perfect.

hi everyone,

I wore the same thing that I wore under my dress for the wedding.  I had cups sewn into the dress so I did not need to wear a bra.  I wore light colored underwear.

 

To the brides that are worried about their dress after a TTD:

 

My dress was fine :)  We did a TTD in the ocean and then moved onto the pool.  I am so happy that I did one, it added to the essence of our wedding photos.  The ocean got a lot of the dirt that the dress picked up from wear on the day of the wedding.  After the shoot I put the dress in a bath full of cool water.  My dress had a lot of rushing on the sides.  I had to gently release the sand from these areas which took about 20 minutes.  After a good soak I let the dress dry on our balcony overnight and the next day it was as good as new!  It even looked better after the TTD than the night of the wedding.  Seriously.  Don't worry about ruining your dress.  The "trash" part never really happens.

 

My sister took our photos and I think they turned out great!

My dress consultant told me that as long as I didn't jump into any chlorinated pools, my dress would be fine. Not super worried about it because I know it will get dirty from the sand anyways. Super excited to do a TTD!

    • 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.
