I think a lot of people are under the impression that the dress is irreparably damaged in them, and that is definitely a small minority.  Here’s a couple of facts to consider-

1. Your dress is going to get dirty on your wedding day.  If you’re obsessed about this fact you’re going to be in for a disappointment.  The bottom of most wedding dresses look like they were sweeping a chimney by the time the wedding is over.

2. Your dress can be cleaned.

3. Odds are your daughter will not wear your dress.  We have shot over 100 weddings and only one bride wore her mother’s dress – and to be perfectly honest it did not fit her that well and the style was more outdated looking than it was classic.

Of course not everyone wants to get back into their dress and have a portrait session, that is completely fine. But there is definitely no real reason to be against someone doing it.  All it is is one more opportunity to put it on, and it’s not like anyone is forced into doing it.

I commented on a thread last week, so I won’t repeat myself. But you can see from my avatar that I am pro-TTD:)

Some people on the other thread said that people who wanted to do TTD were “trashy” and “selfish”, which I found incredibly rude. There are a lot of people here whose wedding plans are definitely not my taste, but I wouldn’t call them out on it. Or name-call.

@Pokemon:  I was wondering the same thing.

I think it’s a personal choice, and it can be done in whatever way the wearer of the dress wants to — totally trashing it, simply taking more “fun” pictures, buying a different, cheaper dress for the session only, not choosing to do it at all, whatever.

@pokemon: I know, right? I had to fight to keep from being really, really snarky.

People were acting like we were taking food from starving children for wanting a few nature shots in our dresses. Lol

I don’t get it either. So if I don’t trash the dress, but I don’t donate it either, does that make me “trashy” too? Dress is still not donated even though there is no photoshoot. Are people just mad not everyone wants to donate their dresses?

@Pokemon:  Actually, you can argue that a TTD shoot is better for society than just keeping it in the closet. Money is going to the photographer, the makeup artist, the photo printer, etc…

@Pokemon:  I see this as a possibility. 😉 Let’s be clear though, we have to get a good warranty on the rented kids. hahaha.
ETA: And um, hello awesome parents award – Amelia Bedelia and Pokemon FTW? Obviously.

@SoupyCat:  I like your logic! And yes, it sounds like people are just being annoying about not everyone wanting to do the same thing as them. I’ll admit, I get that way about some things *cough* animals *cough* but c’mon, it’s a dress.

@AmeliaBedelia:  Lol, yes, well, it’s ok to do that about animals because they are sentient beings. If dresses were sentient… Well that’s just a scary thought!
