Um, I’m not sure how to trash a dress without trashing it. 🙂

Perhaps a second much cheaper bridal looking dress for trashing would be fun?

I get what you are saying. So — no water, no sitting on lying on the ground. Think of it as a fun shoot without ruining the dress — ie, you won’t be as worried about the dress since you already wore it to your wedding. Now, it may be a bit dirty on the bottom if you do an outdoor shoot, but that’s not unusual for normal wear to a dress, and I’m thinking your dry cleaner can fix that.

So, tell your photog you want poses that don’t totally trash the dress, but more than you could get at the wedding with time constraints etc.

From what I read.. as long as you stay away from algae or industrial oil you should be able to dry clean it and it be fine.

Even paint… just use childrens washable paint =)

I will be also doing to TTD, it’s included in my picture package. I will be buying a cheaper white dress for that shoot, I want to be a bit more adventurous with that shoot, but there’s NO WAY I’m trashing MY dress hihi…

I’ve always wondered if doing a TTD in the water (which is what I want to do) would ruin it?

what about on a play ground? you could go down the slides or swings or something. it will represent the happy, care free essense of the planning being over and the marriage beginning. (and maybe babies?)  Just a suggestion….

I read a lot about this. Almost anything can be cleaned out of a dress. Even those who choose to go underwater or roll around in the mud. It can come out. Even if it can’t be cleaned all the way, some organizations will cut up the dress to make quilts. 

I want to do this, but I will probably get a china replica dress. lol

I’m doing a shoot similar to Mrs. Cardigans. We’re going to take pictures of us in a pup, playing pool and having some drinks. It will be nice to not have to worry if my dress is getting dirty, but it definitely won’t be “trashed” either.
