I actually voluntarily went to a park after our first look and we took pictures under a gazebo and actually standing on a tree, oh and on the grass. I made sure to keep my dress lifted high when I was walking anywhere (plus my veil since I had a chapel length veil) and only spread it on the floor when I was posing. My dress ended up being completely fine because I was careful. I did arrange for my makeup and hairstylist to stay at the venue until we got back because I knew my hair and makeup would probably need some touching up since I was leaving my hair fully down. My hair needed some touch ups but my makeup pretty much stayed perfectly. You really just have to be extremely careful and graceful about everything you do. At the end of the night the bottom of my dress was a little dirty and that was from the dress trailing on the floor all day and dancing on the dance floor! So it got dirtier from inside the venue than it did from outside.

Can you bustle your dress during these pictures?  That is what I did for our before pictures and we were walking around on red clay.  My dress had a fine dusting of red on my dress after the pictures but it shook out easily.

We had a garden ceremony and I did a lot of pre-wedding pictures outside with my girls. The bottom of my dress did get really dirty but you couldn’t tell unless you lifted it up – and no one did :). Once it was bustled it hung so you couldn’t see the dirt either. Honestly I didn’t even notice until that night when I took it off and the whole bottom was black! I didn’t do anything to prevent the blackness and its not like I’m wearing it again so it didn’t matter too much to me. It didn’t show in any pictures.
