I’m a fairly newbee and forgive me if this has been discussed here recently, but I’m curious if any of you are considering “trashing your dress” and also how and when. I’ve seen some amazing pics-brides rolling around in paint, floating in a pond, dragging through mud puddles, etc.
I’m thinking of trashing mine in the ocean after my Maui wedding-I figure the photographer will be right there and I think some black and white photos would be kinda cool too. And obviously I’m not going to spend more than a few hundred $ on this dress (thank goodness for eBay 🙂 I don’t know if I could trash something that I paid $2000 for.
Anyway, thoughts or ideas?

I like the idea. I’ve seen a lot of those on photography blogs that look really awesome! I am probably not gonna do one though, mostly because I’m going to reconsign my dress. But, it would be cool to see if I could find a cheap one I don’t care about messing up on craigslist or something.

The pictures are awesome, but I could never do it! I’m either going to get my dress shortened or sell it or donate it.

I did a TTD session 2 days after my Maui wedding. We opted to do a waterfall/bamboo forest location rather than the beach. I bought a dress for $150 at a sample sale and used that for my session. I would say go for it. Dh and I had a great time and the pictures turned out amazing.

I’m keeping an eye out for a cheap dress that’s easy to pack. Fiance and I are going to Anguilla on our honeymoon, which has lots of awesome beaches. Fiance thought it would be fun to splash in the water, roll around in the sand, etc. and take some pics.
We’ll see if I find anything.

@hotchildinthecity-I’m totally with you. I just went to a Flickr gallery to get some beach ideas and now I’m totally obsessed with doing this 🙂 I’m trying to figure out a way to trash the dress at the beach first and then move over to the hotel pool to get the salt out of it and get some pics under the fountain. Then, dry it out and drive it over to the other side of Maui and trash it in the jungle. I found that the dresses that “trash” the best are the so-called “poufy” dresses or the ones with longer trains. But I too want something inexpensive that will travel easy. Hmm, what to do?
Am I going a bit overboard with this? lol
By The Way, after I made this post I found at least 3 others on the same subject-figures 🙂 I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on these threads-thanks for the input so far
