My mother would kill me- but I'm thinking about doing it....

 

I'm not sure if I would rather the beach, or there is a tour that we are going on through an underground river in the riviera maya.. "Rio secreto ".

 

Is anyone else doing a trash the dress? Where are you planning it? How long are you planning for the session to be?

 

Anyone know if I might be able to pull it off at the underground river?

The best person to decide will be your photographer. They will know the sites where you're allowed to have your session, and if it's a cenote session you want, they'll know the places you can go. Some of the cenote sites are highly connected to Mayan religious symbols, so there could very easily be restrictions on what you can and can't do. I remember the one we went to near Coba and the site had to be blessed before we went in. It took about 10 minutes before we even were allowed to walk the trail. Some of the sites are really neat.  Check your photographer's site and see if they have TTD pics on their website. Do they have TTD rates? The sessions always cost extra over and above your general photography. Plus you need to think about getting to the site in your dress, or is there somewhere to change. Once it's wet you'll need somewhere to change into regular clothes afterwards. If you get all the details worked out, what about a second dress for a TTD? If you've paid a lot of money for your dress, do you want to get it wet? Sometimes they come out perfectly from dry cleaning, but there are some fabrics that don't handle the water well.

 

Lots to think about! Good luck!

I didn't pay very much for my dress. I ended up ordering it from a shop in China that custom did it for 100 dollars after shipping and everything! The dress came out perfect, I just have no desire to truck it back to the states.

 

Were thinking of either trashing it in a photo shoot, or using the fabric to make gifts for the parents (wedding album)

Ok - now you've got my curiousity aroused. Which shop did you use? Did you know there is a whole thread here about buying knock offs? There is a lot of going back and forth about which shops are the good ones and which are a bit dodgy. How did you find out about the shop?

My mother encouraged me to check out wedding dresses on e-bay, and that they sometimes have overflow dresses from shops, and sometimes some good used ones.

 

dress

 
I found this dress- the seller "fashion20121122"
 
I ordered the dress around 85 dollars, and spent around 15 for shipping and handeling!! I private messaged her to ensure she got my size, she replied with "ohh! we will custom make to ensure it fits, please send your measurments to me and I will make fitted for you.
 
We spent the night taking my measurments, and doing a little reading to make sure we didn't go wrong anywhere.
 
When I got the dress- It was perfect, a silky inner layer with an outskirt of lace. I ordered a lace up to make sure that if I lose or gain weight, it wouldn't effect my ability to fit in it. The ribbon was not sewed to the dress (thank God, it didn't match ANYTHING)

Wow that's really pretty! And you got a fantastic deal! I'm looking into it but really nervous about moving ahead. Everything I'm looking at is running in the range of $1300 and $1400 so I would definitely like to try and save some money if I could.

What is "trash the dress" ??

It's a session where the bride goes in the water, or other areas and takes pictures. The dress usually ends up ruined.

I was nervous about it too, but 100 dollars isn't bad, so I gave it a shot and lucked out I guess. Good luck!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
