TTD Dress..How Much?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how much you paid for your TTD dress for those of you that chose to get a second gown?

 

I'm on the fence. On the one hand, I don't much care if my wedding gown is "ruined". But on the other, I'm thinking that getting a second gown is a valid excuse to be able to wear TWO dresses that I really like instead of having to just pick one, ya know?

 

So, I kind of decided to go ahead and get a second dress, if I could find it cheap so I started browsing the Ebay manufacturers....I figure if it isn't perfect, so what, its the TTD dress. BUT, the more I looked the more I found some gowns that I sorta liked, but the ones that I REALLY liked are still several hundred bucks. Figures. I never pick the cheap stuff even when I'm trying dammit. SO, I guess the real question is for those of you on a budget more or less who got a second dress, how much did you pay for it? I see some that are pretty..beautiful in fact, that you can get for under $200. But the one isn't one of them.

I paid $60 at Macy's for a beautiful white dress on clearance. I don't know if they still will have summer-y dresses there or not, but there were quite a few white ones to choose from.

I found mine on eBay (same size and designer as my real WD) and I got it for $76!! No alterations necessary (I could get it taken in a bit, but figure no sense spending the extra money for the TTD ... especially when you won't be able to tell in the pics!

i got one for $99 - but the only reason i got a 2nd dress was because i didn't want my "real" dress to get trashed, since the plan is to sell it. i really wanted to do my TTD pics in my real dress, since i think that would make them more "special" - i think you should use your real dress!

I'm not doing TTD, but try looking on Nordstrom.com: Designer Collections and Top Apparel, Shoe and Beauty Brands in their wedding section. They have a lot of cute inexpensive dresses. Also, try J.Crew - Cashmere, sweaters, dresses, children's clothing & gift cards, BananaRepublic.com: Modern Apparel, Handbags, Shoes, and Accessories, even (who would have thought!) Welcome to Target!

    • 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
