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

Recommended Posts

I can't wait for our pictures in October! My husband and I will be taking them during our honeymoon in Cancun. cheesy.gif We eloped so I didn't get the pretty dress - so for this I'm buying an inexpensive dress from DB's and this way we'll still get these great pictures with an amazing backdrop!

For those of you who don't want to ruin your dresses - have you considered getting knockoffs from sites like DHgate? I've never purchased from them so I'm not sure how it works, but some of those dresses are only about $100.

TTD is so unique!  Although new to most and hesitation will follow this is your day and your pictures!!  I am most definitely doing one and I have to admit that I am more excited about these than the actual wedding day photos.  We will be the first to have this done among our family & friends so I am toooooo excited.

 

Here is my thing, I did by an alternate dress for this.  I could not fathom putting a 4k dress is water.  With that said, to each his/her own but follow your heart always!

My partner & I are definitely doing this!  And it was never a question as to wearing our real wedding dresses.  Not like we are ever going to wear them again!

 

Aside from being a ton of fun for us, these pictures will provide a lifetime of shock and awe from friends & fam, especially when framed and displayed in our home.

Out off all my wedding pics, everyone thought my TTD pics were the best and most unique and really captured our love.

 

I would tell anyone to go it, its one of the benefits of doing a DW right??  Why not??

 

This was my second wedding and my first wedding dress is still under my bed.

 

On a good note about your dress afterwards, truly its CLEAN, really you wouldnt think so but it was so clean, the ocean and salt do an awesome job of cleaning it, I did not have one stain, and we rolled all over the beach...LOL

I have to say from the moment I started seeing the TTD photos from Del Sol, I knew it was something I had to do! We spent a week at the resort with friends and family and then the following week in St. Lucia, so we told ourselves it would be our 1 year anniversary gift to each other! We've now been married a little over a year and have booked our TTD session! My wedding dress was raw silk and took a beating between our wedding and then dancing the night away, so I'm purchasing another dress. I fell in love with Dahlia MacPhee gowns and ordered one last week! I'm hoping that I love it and will wear this for my TTD. Next stop...designing all of my own {Red-i} By Chelsea jewels for the occasion. So excited!! My vote is 150%...do it! Even if you don't have the ability to do it during your wedding trip, I think it's just as exciting to be carrying another wedding dress through the airport (or having my husband do it I should say :) a year later! Who doesn't love the idea of another wedding-related getaway (and another photo shoot with Del Sol!!

 

Here's another recent Del Sol TTD session with my barefoot jewels! http://delsolphotography.com/blog/content/galleries/?gal=470

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
