Question For Past Brides That Did Trash The Dress

Recommended Posts

Question for those that did the trash the dress photo sessions.   How long did it take for your dress to dry?

 

we are getting married on a Tuesday and were thinking of doing a trash the dress session either the day after or Thursday.  We are going to do pictures on beach in the sand and partial in ocean/pool.    I know I can hang dry it and also have the resort dry clean it.   Just worried it won't be dry or ready since we depart on Friday afternoon.  

 

Do you think a day or two is enough time for my dress to be cleaned or should I use another dress?

I do have another wedding dress that is very light weight, typical destination dress.   However, its from my previous marriage.  I just never was able to re-sell it.  I really wouldn't care if that one got ruined or even left behind.   I just feel really weird using it for this.   

 

 

What do you all recommend?

whatever you decide dont use your other dress from another marriage lol....Im not married yet but I would think that most dress should dry fairly quick I would rather hang it to dry then take to dry cleaners on the resort lol...Depending on the wedding dress you get most of them if not all you can take some of the tool out to make the dress even lighter.. just a thought!!!

It may not dry up tbh. I stayed in Mexico a few weeks ago and it was soooo humid even the clothes we didn't use that stayed in our luggage was slightly damp. Even any paper stationary in our room, money, etc felt damp.

I will get my session one or two days after our wedding and my photographer told me that I could buy a cheaper dress for the TDD photo shoot. you can get it online, etc. Best :)

thanks ladies,   I might just buy another cheap dress for it.  I doubt my actual dress will dry by then.

I never understood the logic to trash a perfectly beautiful dress when there are so many ladies out there that would love to have a beautiful second hand dress at a more affordable cost.

 

I spent 25 dollars on my lacy sundress that I can wear at any other occasion during the summer months. 

 

It makes me sad that people kill their wedding dresses when they could bring so much joy to someone else.

 

Just my 2 cents.

You don't actually trash your dress per se. From what I've read and heard from some photographers your dress actually gets really dirty at your wedding from dancing and walking around in it. The bottom is filthy so at the "trash" your dress session in the water the dress actually come out cleaner and can be used again. Im still debating if im going to do this, the pictures are pretty cool.

I definitely plan on doing a TTD session and love how other bride's pics have come out! I'm debating on whether or not to just go online and buy a cheaper dress to use for the session or to just go with my actual dress from the ceremony.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
