    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?

            Is it normal to buy a separate dress for TTD? I may have to add that to my budget because I definitely want a TTD session on the beach.

              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:











                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
