i am trying to become a two dress bride. but not for the day of the wedding.
i am hitting up places like value village, and other thrift stores, along with craigslist to try and find a second dress for myself at under $100… but is also for a plus size bride.
why? well my fiance is dead set on doing a video of trash the dress but there is no way i am letting him trash my dress… sorry huni! but NO! so the compromise we came up with was finding another dress and veil for stink cheap.
his inspiration for wanting to do this…
check out that video of a local vancouver, bc couple its incredible! we love it! and are also from that area.
please keep an eye out for dresses for me 😀

Wow, they really trashed their dress… lol I would NEVER NEVER do that to my dress!! I love her too much (though we haven’t officially met, yet.) It does look fun, though. If I were to do something like that, I’d only do it with a cheap dress, too. I like the part being in the water and the food fight, but not sure about the pouring paint on each other part. lol

Hi Anvil! I’m a plus size girl as well, and I didn’t find that much choice for used dresses online in larger sizes. If you have time, you might want to check out some of the replica dressmakers in China, if you don’t care what the quality will be. I would think you could definitely get a replica dress made in your size for that price– just be very clear with them on the measurements, and even err on the side of sending larger measurements, to be safe. EJS ordered a replica dress for some pre-wedding shots, so you might want to check out her posts to see her experience.

I think TTD shoots are AWESOME! And if we decide to do one, I will be buying a cheapo dress too! I agree with jhphi that trying to order a replica gown from China would be a good option. If you are going to trash it anyways, it doesn’t matter if the quality isn’t great!

Is there a second-hand dress store in your area? Look there; they usually have a bridal section. Good luck and have fun with TTD!
