I’m soon to be a BM at a a very good friends wedding & i’m looking forward to it. However shortly after the big day theres going to be ttd session for fun day out & for us to have a gathering have some more photos taken. So she wants us all to be looking good again & as we were on the big day. Including having hair done again jellewery, tiaras & handbags aswell.But the bit what i’m unsure of is shes announced her actual dress trashing idea at the end is to have tons of pva glue & glitter poured all over us including her own dress which cost a fair bit to have some last funny photos for the album. Everythings all paid for but i’m a bit scared of that stuff getting in my eyes. Do you think i should participate or opt out? Would you be happy to do it? Advice please. Sammy.

If it’s paid for then go for it, I’m sure they will be mindful of eyes.

eww no! She wants you to pay to get your hair done again so you can trash a dress that you spent $$$ on?
Tell her you wanted to wear the dress again or sell it to recoup some money.

Why does the glitter need to be glued onto your dresses? I personally wouldn’t do it but its up to you!

Yeah I probably wouldnt, come on have to pay to get your hair done again? Not unless you decided to do your own hair and not wear your pretty jewelry. Its really up to you, how you really feel about it and how much shes important to you. If she wants to trash her dress in that way then let her do it since she paid for it yourself. If a tough one :/

Heck No I would not do this, I would tell her flat out no thank you and to have fun but plan on sitting this out.

Wait, are they gluing glitter to you or just dumping it on you? I wouldn’t worry about getting it in your eyes. Kids play with this stuff, I think it’s pretty harmless. I’d be more upset if I wanted to wear the dress again, or if I had to pay for the hair… but you said it’s all paid for, so I’d do it.

Why pay to get your hair done just to get it full of glue and glitterPersonally I dont like TTDs and I wouldnt want to do trash my dress even if I was just the Bridesmaid or Best Man.

@kingytobe: I really dont know sorry as it wasn’t my idea. I’m guessing its another way of ‘trashing the dress’ I have to admit I’m a little anxious about it.

I wouldn’t do it either. If glue and glitter weren’t involved, I would consider it, but to totally trash a dress and accessories that I spent good money on; forget it. Not to mention that glue is toxic and if you get it in your eyes and/or on your skin, the TTD session may end up with a trip to the emergency room.

@EleanorRigby: dumping it all over us i guess. BTW everythings paid for including the hair styling & the dresses 4 us all together.

I would do it.. why not if she is paying for everything.

My only concern would be trashing a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that I spent money on. But if the bride wanted to go to GoodWill or something and get all the BMs cheap used dresses for the shoot (instead of the nice ones from the wedding), I think it would be really fun.
ETA: I wouldn’t be willing to pay to get hair and makeup and such done, but if the bride is paying for it than no big deal.

I would do it. It’s all paid for and it’s her special day.
I’m sure it will be a good time and I’m also sure they know to avoid your eyes etc. They do want the photos to look good!
