Hi Bees – has anyone done this? Getting married on an island and my photographer has some great trash the dress photo sessions that she has done in the ocean/resort pool. My concern is – will the ocean/chlorine ruin the dress? My dress is taffeta. I am having an at home reception a month after and am planning to wear the dress then. Has anyone done this? Thanks!

@Melchucki: I am a photographer and am definitely having a TTD session during our island wedding. My dress is organza and while at first I thought I would have no problem trashing it, I ended up deciding to purchase a second dress for that purpose as the dress very likely will be trashed (hence the name of the photo session) and I may end up wearing my actual wedding dress for an at home reception at a later date as well. I would suggest looking on preowned dress sites to find a silimar dress for a discounted price if you have similar woes and preserve the dress for the at home reception.
