How trash the dress are we talking???

As long as you aren’t rolling around in the mud i think you’re ok. Or the water. But I did a TTD style bridal shoot and I brought stuff to sit on and my dress was still clean. I even sat on the floor with puppies climbing on me. You couldn’t tell if there was a smudge anyways.

I wouldn’t do it… too many things that could go wrong.  I’d imagine there will be tons of things to snag your dress on….  you do have the rest of your life to do another photo shoot post-wedding…

Yeah, I don’t think I’d do it either. I’m all up for doing a shoot in the dress, even outside, but nothing crazy.

Think of it this way: What is your back-up plan if things do go wrong with your dress? What’s most important — having that dress pristine on wedding day, or getting some cool shots?

Option: can you get a cheap wedding dress or white dress to trash?

I probably wouldn’t do it.  My freshman year of college, we had to walk up a nature path for Ecology.  I wore a nice dress because I knew the trail and didn’t think it could get dirty.  Ten minutes into class, a bird shat on me.  Just sayin’…

i wouldn’t do it. we’re doing a pre-look shoot in central park and i’m already worried about what it would do to my dress (FI has promised we’ll stay on paved paths)

Our shoot ended up having plenty of TTD elements.  I had sap on the back of my dress and a foot and a half of dirt coating the bottom before we got to the reception. 

I told my photographer at the beginning of the day that I was game for anything.  She said, “Yes, but you’ll feel differently when you are in the dress”. 

For me, all I could think of was that I was only wearing this dress once, and I was going to wear the heck out of it.  So we hiked to the river, scrambled over boulders, jumped onto rocks in the water, laid on sap filled fallen trees and hung out in a mosquito-y fern patch.   I would have done more, but it wasn’t necessary to get the images we wanted….

I was thrilled with the way our photos came out and was happy that we stretched the comfort zone to get them 🙂

For each individual, I think the comfort level is different, and I’m well aware that 9 out of 10 girls might think I’m crazy for doing what I did….  It was just very, very me, but I can absolutely understand how others feel differently!

@Engagedtopanda I say go for it if you arn’t worried and are up for it 🙂 I’m sure you’ll get cool shots! Just make sure that you have a back up plan incase it gets completely ruined so that you couldn’t wear it…

I wouldn’t do it!  What if the dress rips?  Or you get a nice mud spot on your behind??

I climbed into the brook that runs through out front yard (with my Wellies on, of course!), rode in the back of a pick-up, stepped in mud, all sorts of stuff! However, it was all after the ceremony. Frankly, I didn’t want to do a Reveal and there really wasn’t time for that anyway. Hey, if you’re comfortable with it, go for it! Just have a back up plan and maybe wear boots instead of your fancy shoes. They make for fun pictures!
