    Didn’t a girl just die from doing TTD photos!? The weight of her dress pulled her under the water and she drowned and died only days after her wedding.

    I say be safe. Trash the dress with paint or mud. Or just let it stay pretty forever 🙂

    I think that is a great idea.

    Your other dress will work so much better in the water. It will float around and look so beautiful. 

    Your location looks amazing 🙂 lucky you

    @Stargaze31:  I know the 2nd dress is cheaper, but it seems wasteful buying another new dress just to trash it… At least if you trash the first dress, you’ll be reusing something that’s already been used for it’s original purpose.. You could even say that trashing it is a form of recycling!  lol

    Oooh…I really like the 2nd dress.  Both dresses are beautiful.  I think you should just trash the 1st dress though.  It’ll be more dramatic!  Who’s your photographer?  We’re getting married at the Fairmont Orchid too!  It’ll just be me and my fiance though.

    I think the second dress would be much better for in the water photos.   Not to mention safer.

    @Stargaze31:  The second dress is a safer option, would look gorgeous but might go see through 🙂

    I’d say try to find a used dress either online or in a consignment store. TTD just seems wasteful to me. JMO

    @Stargaze31:  It just seems wasteful to buy a second dress to do TTD.  Isn’t the point that your wedding dress is a dress you will never wear again but you wear it again only to trash it?  I just don’t get buying a second dress to fake TTD pictures but if you have the money and you want the pictures, do whatevre you want.

    second dress would look so beautiful in water shots plus water and sand may not really ruin it. you may be able to have a good dry clean and use it again for something. either dyed or shortened and wear it  to anniversary dinners…

    A beach TTD isn’t going to do any harm but even if the dress was destroyed, would it really matter? Most dresses are stored away after the wedding and forgotten about! Unless you were planning on selling it, does the condition it’s in really matter?

    Also, is the original price really relevant? The dress was bought for the wedding not for the trash the dress shoot!
