TTD then wear it again?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done a TTD session and then wore it again to your AHR? Originally we were not going to do a TTD session, but we just booked our photographer and she threw it in for free, so why not. I was thinking about buying a cheap knock off dress to wear for it but my FI doesnt understand why i would want to get pics taken in the dress i didnt get married in. I want to wear my dress during our AHR so i am wondering if I do my TTD and bring it home and have it dry cleaned if it will be nice enough to still wear. We are getting married in January and not having our AHR until the summer so it is not like i would be under a time crunch to get it cleaned, I am just wondering if anyone else has done this and how did it turn out?

I'm sure you could TTD in your original wedding dress and then wear it in the summer for your AHR.  I guess it would all depend on what you want to do for your TTD.  If you plan on frolicking around in the forest it might be really dirty and may get wrecked.  If you just are going to take beach and ocean pictures im sure it would be fine.  Just make sure after your TTD session that you wash your dress out with water to rinse the ocean salt off of it.  Then once you get home dry clean it and Im sure it will be good as new!

Why hello there :)

 

Okay, my opinion is to wear your real wedding dress.  I think the photos will have much more meaning to you.  But next we need to discuss what type of a dress you have.  What is the fabric? Maybe a picture of it would help?


Also, knowing that you're going to be wearing it again will help me decide what type of photos we'll take.  I won't do anything too crazy that will get the dress officially "DIRTY." 

 

We can also just do beach pictures if you don't want to actually get IN the water.  But honestly, after dancing during my pool side reception, my dress was BLACK.  But then when I did my trash the dress in that crystal blue water it came out perfectly clean (just sandy).  Rinsed it like crazy in the shower to get as much sand out of it as we could, hung it up, and it's as good as new.

Well, that makes me feel better, I would really like to get in the water with my dress because I really like those pictures, I guess as long as we dont do anything too crazy to where it would get ripped or stained it should be fine. The more and more I think about it the more i really do want to wear my dress, here it is:

Cheryl, we won't wreck it :)

 

One of the benefits of NOT having the resort dry clean it, was that I could shove it in my suitcase for the plane ride home and not have to carry it above my head the entire time again!  or worry about finding carry-on space.

I agree you should wear your dress for the TTD rinse our the salt and sand and then dry clean it when you get home. it may come out cleaner then if you didn't do the TTD, but beware of small details like stones or appliqué, they won't fair so well.

    • 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.
