    @mandy83ala: TTD is trash the dress.

    @bells: I love it when other brides do it, but for me, I think it is a waste of a perfectly good dress. I would rather sell my gown than trash it. And for those that purchase a different dress to TTD, I think the money could be spent better elsewhere.

    i would love to do it but it is a lot of money and i already spent a lot of money on our photographer! we had a fantastic day and were able to take some time to take some shots while soooort of in the ocean.. so we had the look without doing a full TTD. i love photography and had a ton of fun  with our photographers so i know we would have a blast with it. we will see, if i feel inspired! in the mean time i really want to sell my dress with the proceeds going to breast cancer. i’m walking in the Avon Walk and am committed to $1800.

    I think the water ones are ok…beach, river, lake etc. I may consider that….

    I am not a fan of the dirt, mud, paint, whatever TTD sessions. No way jose! 😛

    *shrugs* They are fun photos. I wouldn’t do it. It’s very wasteful.

    I think some of the ones I’ve seen have been really awesome, but it’s not something I would ever do.  I know some brides get a cheap second dress to do it, but to me that makes even less sense because it’s not the dress you were married in and really has no significance.  If that’s what some brides want to do, it’s their choice, but I just choose not to.

    I see no problem with it but I’m not sure if its something that I’ll do. When we originally got engaged and were planning on getting married in Bermuda, the photographer that we were considering posted a number of pictures of past TTD sessions. The pictures are A-MAZ-ING and it totally made me want to do it. If we would have ended up getting married in Bermuda, I would have done a TTD session in a heartbeat since my dress would have been much simpler (and cheaper). 

    When the TTD is done in a classy way, I really like it. If its just something stupid then I don’t really see the point (but to each their own).

    I would’ve loved to have done it! But I wasn’t going to shell out extra money for more pics. I know a lot of people complain about a dirty dress but you can always get it cleaned; if you’re donating your dress a lot of charities will still take them assuming the dress isn’t covered in paint or something unwashable.

    I personally love my dress way too much to deliberately harm it, but I can see why some brides do it. My sister got married three years ago, and her dress is still in the closet at my parents’ house. I’m going to preserve mine, I think, but if you’re just going to leave it in a closet, you might as well. I know you can donate them, but I know my sister is stuck between not wanting to get rid of it and not wanting to commit to keeping it. I kind of rambled, but basically, I wouldn’t do it, but I also wouldn’t judge anyone for doing it.

    I voted “I think it’s pointless and will not do it” However, for those that have reasons, and really want it– I will not judge. That’s just how I feel personally about it.

    the word trash is a bit extreme trash is an american word for rubbish or to vandalize something in the uk so there for your rubbishing your dress doesnt sound right does it really. like a lot of people have said it all depends on you if you want to do it then do it if you dont then dont no1 should be forced into anything. how often is a dress actually trashed? alot of times its fun different & can create some memories. most dresses are cleaned stored or donated or sold afterwards anyway so whats the big deal? its all upto the bride really

    I’m jumping in the water after our wedding. I was considering getting a cheap knockoff so I don’t ruin mine, but the consultant at the shop I bought the dress from told me she got in the water with her dress and didn’t have any issues cleaning it afterward – plus, mine is chiffon, so it’s more breathable anyway. I say, do whatcha want!

    We didn’t do this… but if we were married on a beach, I would have totally wanted to take some pictures in the water!  I love the water/beach pictures I’ve seen around here and on other sites.
