You could get a replica made in china or a second hand dress

noo..I rarley see these photos done. The one’s I have seen are on a bride’s actual dress..and while they are kinda cool, I don’t think I’d actually buy a second dress for it. And yeah, I’m not willing to sacrifice my real dress either. Also, there’s more than one way to trash the dress. I saw a really cool one where the bride took her photographer far enough up by our mountain where ther was snow and she posed in the snow…kinda draged her dress around in it…layed in…practically did snow angels in it…and i’m sure the dress wasn’t completley destroyed.

We are doing a TTD…and I am using a different dress than the one I’ll be wearing the actual wedding day.  I bought a dress, then had dress regret, got a new dress.  I couldn’t sell the original dress, so we’re using it for TTD.  It made me feel SLIGHTLY better about having the extra dress – at least it’s being used for something!

I will be using my actual, one and only wedding dress. I know I still have a year to change my mind, but I’m pretty set.  No one I know has ever done anything with their dress other than try to sell it or let it sit in a closet (preserved or not) for years and years.  My Mother’s gorgeous lace dress which she thought was preserved, she pulled out and it was yellowed and molded.  It went out the next day in the trash 30 years after she wore it.  I don’t want to do this.  When I picture my wedding album…it ends with my TTD session and I can’t wait to do it!  It just seems full circle to me! Call me crazy…

I would probably buy a new dress if you have the money for it. The pictures would look amazing down there! I got engaged in Punta Cana, and REALLY wanted to get married there, but no one would of been able to come. But back on topic, you could probably go online and find a second hand wedding dress for a really cheap price!

@morkiemama: Are you still wearing the blush Vera Wang White gown?  That looked great on you

@SoCoBlue: Yup!  For the reception…Thank you!!  I have a Priscilla of Boston (ivory dress) for the ceremony….I guess technically that means I have 3 dresses.  The original dress I bought (even before the vera), was a Private label by G….being engaged for so long leaves too much time to change you’re mind!

I wouldn’t buy a second dress for it- like others said, what are you going to do with your wedding dress after the day anyway?  Your daughter will not want to wear it- dispense with those notions now.  I wouldn’t wear any of my mother’s three wedding dresses if you paid me, just as she wouldn’t have worn her mother’s.  So you pay to preserve it so it sits in a box for all eternity, or you sell it, or you trash it.  I know my dress isn’t really going to be worth selling- the alterations are going to be ridiculous and I really wouldn’t want to part with it anyway.

That said, I’m using the fabric from my dress (especially the lace) to make a christening gown for any future babies.  I’ll save a piece of it for someone- daughters or FDIL’s- to carry down the aisle with them, but I’m not preserving an entire dress.

I’ll be wearing my Ian Stuart gown in the Atlantic Ocean for our TTD session in the spring. It’s gonna be awesome! I hope it floats! hahaha

The train of my dress got pretty dirty, and I was laying down on the ground in my dress for our day-after session, but I am sure the dry cleaner will be able to get it clean. I mean, they got dark purple nail polish off of my dress from the wedding, so why wouldn’t they be able to get out the dirt? And I don’t think the dress will really be trashed at our TTD either. Plenty of brides have done the saltwater thing and it’s turned out fine. So yeah, I trust my cleaners.
