If it’s paid for then go for it, I’m sure they will be mindful of eyes.

eww no! She wants you to pay to get your hair done again so you can trash a dress that you spent $$$ on?

Tell her you wanted to wear the dress again or sell it to recoup some money.

Why does the glitter need to be glued onto your dresses? I personally wouldn’t do it but its up to you!

Yeah I probably wouldnt, come on have to pay to get your hair done again? Not unless you decided to do your own hair and not wear your pretty jewelry. Its really up to you, how you really feel about it and how much shes important to you. If she wants to trash her dress in that way then let her do it since she paid for it yourself. If a tough one :/

Heck No I would not do this, I would tell her flat out no thank you and to have fun but plan on sitting this out.

Wait, are they gluing glitter to you or just dumping it on you?  I wouldn’t worry about getting it in your eyes.  Kids play with this stuff, I think it’s pretty harmless.  I’d be more upset if I wanted to wear the dress again, or if I had to pay for the hair… but you said it’s all paid for, so I’d do it.

Why pay to get your hair done just to get it full of glue and glitterPersonally I dont like TTDs and I wouldnt want to do trash my dress even if I was just the BM.

I wouldn’t do it either. If glue and glitter weren’t involved, I would consider it, but to totally trash a dress and accessories that I spent good money on; forget it. Not to mention that glue is toxic and if you get it in your eyes and/or on your skin, the TTD session may end up with a trip to the emergency room.

My only concern would be trashing a BM dress that I spent money on.  But if the bride wanted to go to GoodWill or something and get all the BMs cheap used dresses for the shoot (instead of the nice ones from the wedding), I think it would be really fun.

ETA: I wouldn’t be willing to pay to get hair and makeup and such done, but if the bride is paying for it than no big deal.

I would do it. It’s all paid for and it’s her special day.

I’m sure it will be a good time and I’m also sure they know to avoid your eyes etc. They do want the photos to look good!
