    Hola, TTD is good idea! Considering that probably you will never wear your dress again. Or you can buy an extra less expensive dress for the Trash the dress
    Best Regards

      I too am now considering trashing my dress. I was hesitate before, because I paid $ for it, but now I'm really thinking about it. For those that have did the TTD how long did it take for your dress to dry?? Did you hang it outside on your balcony of your hotel?

        So doing the TTD... love love love it... and it's probably one of the main reason why we are doing an DW... I want pics in my dress in the middle of the ocean :)

         

        And you can say that you did wear your wedding dress twice lol...

         

        @ mochamakes3: the last pic with the rain is incredible... the best TTD pic I've seen... so now... I want some rain just for 5 mins :P

          I'm totally going to do a TTD!  I think the pictures look so good that it will definitely be worth it and will be a fun experience!

            Depends on what your dress is made of. Mine is mostly tulle, so it never got "wet" in the ordinary sense of the word. I hung it on the balcony for a few hours before we left and it was mostly dry.

              Your session was beautiful! I'm still waiting on our photos. I got the video, but I'm gonna hold off on sharing it until after our AHR. I am TOO excited!!! Congrats!

              A couple of weeks after we got home, I turned my dress inside out and washed in on the delicate cycle. It took a couple of tries because it was stained by clay (from the wedding day) and a lot of oxy clean, but it looks great now.

              I'd almost be tempted to do another one where I complete trash the dress beyond recognition.

                I agree, these are some of the best TTD photos I have seen.  I LOVE that it rained, such a romantic picture!!

                    Thanks so much ladies! It worked out perfectly that it was sunny when we started, a little overcast while in the ocean, and finally the only rain of our whole trip. The only thing that didn't work out was our underwater shots with our personal camera :( But everything that our photographers did was wonderful.

                      I love your pictures, they are beautiful. I was going back and forth on the TTD, but I am definitely going to do it now. I think these pictures are nicer than some of the regular wedding photos!  I will just use my dress as well rather than buying one just for TTD.
