They look fun to me, but I’m not sure I would want to pay to get my hair and make-up all re-done.  It would also depend on the resale value of my dress.

@MrsLulu: This. for me is too much to get hair and makeup redone, I like the trash session when the bride and groom are all natural, no makeup, loose hair… And not the really “trash” the dress maybe just get it a little dirty.

We like to call them “day after sessions,” as most of the time the dress doesn’t actually get trashed.  One of our best sessions like this the bride just let her hair down and did a very light makeup application herself.  I think she almost looked more beautiful the second day than she did on the wedding, she was just so relaxed.

Im doing a Trash the Dress session the day after our wedding.  We will be either Jumping from the Rocks or a pier into the ocean.  I will be doing my own hair and makeup leaving the look a little more natural.  I knew I wanted to do a TTD before even looking at dresses.  Getting married in the Cayman  Islands.

i did another photo session at my AHR.  we only booked an hour, so it was a decent price. and the purpose was to get more bridal party photos as Bridal Party photo time was cut on my wedding day and two BMs also couldn’t attend my wedding, but had already bought their dresses, so we did photos with everyone that was supposed to be there.  It was fun and regarding  hair and makeup, i did my makeup myself and i got my hair – but a different style that was cheaper than what i paid the first time but i actually liked it more than my wedding day!

i also did a TTD session in Jamaica two days after my wedding, but i had a different cheap dress and we did that because we were in jamaica and i wanted to do all the romantic beach pics i had seen in TTDs before.  i also did my makeup that and syled my hair as i do everyday since once i got all wet, it didn’t really matter.

i was really happy with both these extra sessions have no regrets. Basically both these sessions were very low cost, so i think if you can find ways to make it low cost, then it’s totally worth it. In the end, your dress i think is what stands out the most, not your hair or makeup.

I’m doing a Trash the dress.  Everyone I know is against it…but I WANT to.  I can’t picture my wedding album being “complete” without it.

If you want more shots, you don’t have to do a TTD.  You shouldn’t have to pay alot either.  Do a simpler hairstyle that you or a friend can do, do your own makeup and in a different setting, it’ll be lovely!  You don’t have to re-create the entire day.

I did it and I LOVED it!   Some of my best pics were from the day after.  If you look up my recent posts you can see some of the TTD session 🙂

I love the idea of the “day after session”! I think that’s really cute – I don’t think I will be doing it but I like the idea a lot. Personally, I really HATE the idea of “Trash the Dress”. I think it’s horrible – I’m not a girly girl and I am not one of those chicks who was planning her wedding since age 5 (I was planning on what doctorate degree I was going to get by age 30 instead lol), but there is something symbolic about my wedding dress. I would never want to ruin that dress, but to each their own!
