We’re doing a photo session a few days later due to a venue change – we were originally going to be very close to Lake Michigan and now will be too far to take pics there on the day of, so it will just be me and the new hubby, my dress, his tux.  We’re going to go informal on hair and shoes, probably barefoot, and we’ll probably take a few pics lying in the sand, but I’m not going to do irreversible damage to the dress, aka submerge it in Lake Michigan.  Frankly I don’t want to submerge myself in the lake regardless, it’s nasty!!  I think trash the dress sessions look amazing but I also think you can get lots of those shots without ruining a dress.

Um, we DID a TTD session…, so not sure that it is a trend, per se, but it definitely makes for great pictures (which is what sold it for me!).

I’m doing one with my motorcycle, not sure how "trashed" it will actually get, but I’m ok either way!

My daughter is doing a TTD.  Where she bought her dress they were giving away old "sample" dresses and we are going to use that one.  Also, in Lake Michigan as mrsmike above.  Hopefully it will make great pictures

I think it probably depends on the bride and how into photography they are. I’ve heard of a lot of women who love the idea of a TTD shoot but dont want to risk ruining their own gown, so they buy a dress on ebay or from a thrift store for that purpose.

I personally would have no problem with getting my dress dirty for a fun day-after shoot. I actually really want to get in the water for a few shots.

We’re doing a TTD shoot but we’re not trashing anything. For us it’s more of a "day after the wedding shoot" kind of thing, for taking cool photos that we won’t have time to take on our wedding day, but the photography package we got calls it a TTD, so it’s TTD in name but not in spirit 😛

I am planning on doing a TTD after the wedding. But, I will most likely NOT wear my actual wedding dress. I’ve seen some really great pics of brides here who have bought another inexpensive dress from eBay or Goodwill to wear for their TTD pics.

We had awesome pictures of us jumping into the water, swimming around, laying in the sand, etc.  I am so glad we did it. 

It was with a second dress – I didn’t mention that before!

Darren, if you want to come to Chicago, I’ll trash a dress for you!!
