    Ooops, I picked “Of course not” But I just saw the ‘of course’ lol.

    I’m not going to “trash it” per se, however, as a wedding photographer, I like to call it “fearless” or “rocking the frock” or any other non ugly term.

    It’s not so much about “trashing” the dress, it should be about you going out, getting AMAZING pictures, and having fun in your dress. There’s only so much you can do pre wedding when the gown needs to stay in perfect condition, but after, suddenly, laying in grass, on a dirty windo ledge, etc… isn’t too bad.

    The dress still cleans up, and it’s something you’ll have to clean anyways… why not rock the heck out of it?

    While I think that a lot of TTD pictures are beautiful, I just wouldn’t be able to do it.  I’m not an overly setimental person when it comes to tangible possessions,  but my mom bought me my dress as a gift.  I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to ruin it.

    My favorite TTD shoot that I’ve seen (and it may have been on here) was a girl wearing her dress while standing in the middle of the ocean.  Beautiful!

    I love a good, fearless TTD session. While I don’t think I could ever destroy my dress (mainly because I can wear it again!), I love the pictures these sessions create.

    I loved the pictures that were on that website. So cute! But I don’t think I could trash my dress! ;]

    Love the photos! … another option is to purchase a “disposable dress”.  I bought a $99 David’s Bridal dress (as a second dress) just to trash it.  It is still a really nice “classic” dress and I hope it works out!

    Oh how fun Melissa!!!!

    I am totally doing it. We are getting married at RedRocks and there are tons of places to get dirty. I’m thinking of going down to the stage and fake run up the incredibly steep set of stairs (marathon people train on these!). There is also a creek/river that runs behind the reception venue and I want to stand in the middle of it if I can. Then I bought the knockoff and I want to get tin snips (big scissors you use to cut sheet metal) and cut it up and throw the satin pieces in the air.

    I wish I had the guts to but whether I spend $5,000 dollars or $500 on a dress I can’t see me destroying it.

    Our #1 pick for photographer was booked for our date, I’m hoping to book him for a “wear it again” session after of just Fiance & I. Hoping to take fun shots around the city.

    not in my real dress because I hope to sell it as soon as possible. But if I used a different, cheaper dress, then maybe.

    I think the pictures you get from a TTD session are often gorgeous, but I would much rather donate my dress than trash it.

    BUT, I like the idea of “rock the frock” KLP brought up. Some unexpected shots that aren’t as pristine but don’t actually trash the dress sound like fun. It would just be VERY important for me to be able to clean and donate the dress.
