TTD vent regarding rude onlookers
While doing my TTD session I recieved many funny looks, but there was one in particular that bugged me.
While I was cutting up the dress and my photog was snapping away, a woman and her husband came up to me to ask what I was doing. I told them that I did TTD shoot and now I was cutting the top so I could save it. The wife then asked why I trashed the dress and I replied, "Why not!? What else am I going to do with it?", with a smile. She gave me a dirty look and rudely replied, "You could donate it".
First off lady, this is my wedding dress that I bought and paid for. I have always wanted to do these pictures with DH for memories, and I'm saving pieces for scrap booking, christening gown and "something old" for my daughter. Who the heck is she to judge what I do!
I donate often and when I can to many different causes, in many different ways. What I do with MY wedding dress is my business.
Phew, vent over! ;)
