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! ;)

Lol! You should have smiled sweetly at her and told her exactly what you stated in your third paragraph. I am glad you did what you did with your dress and that will be a cherished keepsake fro your children.

Did she donate hers? Good for her!
Did you do what you wanted with yours? Great for you!!!!!!!

I understand the feeling. People, mostly women actually (relatives at that) give me side eye because of a vow renewal. I know why and that's another story for another thread. The point is that it is a hater's job is to hate. Just be fabulous and always no matter what be you (:

How ruuuuude! It is your dress and you can do what you please with it! I love the idea on what you did and are doing with your wedding dress! You go girl! ;)


I damn sure won't donate mine, so it'll stay in the air-shut box thing for now - but I was actually thinking of some how putting it in a shadow box so I can hang it up on the wall and look at it everyday! That would be neat!

WTH was she feeling like,standing in the middle of someone's photoshoot, doing '20 questions'? Im amazed that some people have so much time on their hands.

Some people just don't get it...and by 'it' I mean anything! People need to stop judging and just relax!! If more people could mind their own business and just be happy for others this would be a better place!
Ok, off my soapbox now, I meant to say I understand and feel your pain :)
