    Hello all you fine forum folks! We've had some fantastic "trash the dress" shoots lately and I just wanted to share some photos with you all. 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.

      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!

        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.

            I can't wait for our trash the dress. Indeed, we aren't planning to "trash it" and I've heard from friends that the resort's cleaning service ended up getting out any sand or dirt :)

              So, once people TTD, what do you do with it? Do people still try and keep it? Or do they discard it after the shoot?

                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!

                  I am hoping mine comes clean enough to wear it for my AHR. I am hoping...

                      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!
