Best style of dress for a TTD

Recommended Posts

I am purchasing a separate dress for our TTD session and I feel a bit overwhelmed. What are your thoughts on the best style of dress for a TTD? Trying to think what looks best underwater? What material works well wet? Those sort of things....

 

Ladies thoughts?

I'm thinking of going with something light weight (chiffon) because anything heavy will be way heavier when wet and full of sand. I've heard that you shouldn't wear silk because it will get completely destroyed.

I'm sorta new here but I figure you guys are talking about destroying the dresses....or at least wearing them into the water. 

 

hmmm interesting idea....I think the dress that I love would work for that....its Martina Liana 359 so you have the lace overlay and then the under dress like two dresses....that way you could take off a layer and it wouldn't be so heavy. 

 

Anyways I am going to go look up what TTD means. 

 

Happy Weddings!

TTD stands for trash the dress, doesn't always mean you destroy it, but you play around in the ocean or pool, lie in the sand, etc. Often done the day after wedding with your hubby and a photographer. And I googled your dress, it's gorgeous! Have you already bought it?

I am planning this on wearing my real wedding dress for the the TTD. Mine has a layerred organza bottom so i figure that it will dry out fairly quickly. Also i want to put the pictures in the same album so i figure don't want the dresses to be different.

Hola shanandcal,

 

Congrats on your upcoming wedding!!!

 

While a lot of our gals wear their actual wedding dress to the TTD Session or also know as a "Wash the Dress Session"....it is normal but not necessary to buy a separate one. I guess this is more of a personal choice, just make sure you pick a dress you feel comfortable and beautiful in. 

 

Here are some of our most recent mermaid couples to give you a bit of inspiration:

 

Tegan + Tyson - We loved her dress underwater!!!

Bev + Jordan - Bev actually had her TTD dress custom made and similar to her Maggie Sottero worn on her wedding day.

Brandon + Danielle - One of my favorite couples, check out the converse and the gorgeous dress!!!

Yekaterina + Sergei - Yekaterina went for a very romantic bohemian look, we also loved!!!

Hope you enjoy these....Best of luck planning!

Chiffon does seem like it would be best. I'm doing the underwater ttd and the chiffon is soooo flowy in the water! But if not underwater I would really like anything that doesn't stain easily. I'm not planning on completely ruining my dress, but I bought a 99$ davids sale dress for the session

    • 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
