I know one thing for sure, you should definitely do it some time after the actual wedding ceremony... woot.gif

I think that we are going to do ours the evening after. One of our photog friends is going to shoot it and loves the light just before sunset, so we'll take her advice, look for an isolated piece of the beach, and go from there. I don't think that we will tell anyone our plans, as we're really not looking for spectators...

Later in the day also means there will be a few drinks in our systems and we may be a little less inhibited and more goofy!!!

I think that we're doing it on a different day ... our ceremony is at 5 and I definitely want late afternoon / evening sunset light for the TTD. The other consideration I thought of ... for both you and me ... is whether you're wearing your actual wedding dress. My girlfriend got married in Cabo last August. She actually used a different dress for the TTD (got it cheap on eBay). The pictures were stunning (Shout Out to Leigh Miller) ...

We did ours the day after our ceremony. We chose later in the day. We went down the beach a bit and we had lot's of privacy from our guests, everyone we knew respected that we wanted to be alone, so I don't think you should worry about your fi family. Our ttd session was so much fun, best part of our vacation.

TTD is "trash the dress" which is really about capturing the fun of having a wedding dress in an unusual setting/situation like water. Some people really do trash their dress, but most of the water ladies, it more like "clean the dress". Check out the site:

 

Trash the Dress!

 

Anyway, we are actually doing our TTD BEFORE the wedding. Ha, so I'm not actually using my real dress for it, for obvious reasons. We really wanted to do the session, but we had no time after the wedding to make it happen so this is our compromise. We're doing it on Wed before our Sat wedding and we'll a few guests at the hotel already but most are coming in that afternoon so they'll miss it. We'll probably go off and do some shots at various locations on the island then come back to the pool at the hotel for the underwater stuff (oh yeah I'm going under).

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
