@Ms. Blue:  I think getting a second dress kind of defeats the purpose.

@BridieBea:  Agreed. The whole point is to trash your dress because you’ll never wear it again.

I think I’ve seen some bees here get a 2nd dress from one of those Chinese dressmakers – Jasmine’s bridal or Dressilyme. 

Personally, I would use my own dress.  First, I’m not going to ever wear it again.  Second, it’s already going to be trashed from the wedding itself (dirty/ripped hems, tears, wine stains, etc).  Third, it actually doesn’t ruin the dress.  Finally, I wouldn’t want to spend more money on a 2nd dress or get a dress that looks different from the one I wore to my wedding.

I used my own dress. Didn’t wreck it at all. Honestly, it was cleaner than the night of the wedding. I know its scary that you might ruin your dress but they’re more resilient than you think.

I’m doing a TTD shoot and using my dress. We’re not doing anything crazy (no paint or anything) but from what I hear, generally you can get them cleaned and they’re fine. Not that I would be super upset if it got ruined. I’m never wearing it again so who gives a rat’s ass?
