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!






Theuy came out great!!

          Yea I think these can go either way...some are a little too creepy/sexual for me but some of the ones in the cenote are awesome!



          If it were me i'd buy a second dress because I would never do that after spending thousands of dollars on a dress. Also a note of caution, people have drowned from their dress -so if yours is big and poofy and you're in water be extra careful.


          I decided to forgo this but it's just a personal preference.

              These TTD photo's are gorgeous! When else are you going to get to wear a wedding dress and play in the sand?! Definitely a go for me. Hopefully it fits into the budget!

              I am SOOOO LUCKY!!!  I am taking my friend who is a photographer with us.  I pay for the trip (flight, hotel for 2 days etc.) she takes my pictures for FREE!  We are so defiantly doing a TTD!  I am using my dress, no extra.  I figure, I am not getting some name brand expensive dress, and what are you going to do with it after anyway??  Keep it for my daughter? Is that even still a tradition?  Thought about cutting it up and making it into a quilt with extra fabrics of our wedding colors.  So why not get it dirty, wet, and have some fun!  it will only happen once in my life, and I want the memories.
