I don’t think it’s that strange, plus unless you are actually burning the dress, you will probably be able to clean the dress from any water/sand/etc.

I don’t think I could.. I have seen some tamer ones.. out in the mountains, in a creek or lake… but I still don’t think I could.. just me.

Yeah I agree with MissAsB – it is my understanding that “trashing” just basically involves getting it dirty, not actually ruined.  Personally, I’d be ok with that, but not with actually ruining it.  If a person doesn’t care to keep their dress, there are plenty of brides who would love to buy a second-hand dress that is perhaps more elaborate than they could afford new (or who just try to buy second hand in general).

Have fun with your shoot if you decide to do it!!

I had the perfect location to do a beach Trash the dress shoot… but I just couldn’t.. All pics show me, holding my dress up so the water won’t touch it… It’s so beautiful, I know I won’t wear it again, but I just can’t!
(it helped that we were heading to dinner right after the beach photo shoot though… don’t want to be all wet and dirty to eat with your guests)

i couldn’t do it. i think the pictures are always beautiful… but just not for me. i purposely bought a dress i can wear again, so i don’t want to ruin it. i thought about buying a cheap dress specifically for that purpose, but i just don’t have it in my budget.

I think my mom would kill me lol.  I love trash the dress pics but I don’t think I could actually ever do it.

I’m not a fan of it, because I LOVE my dress, but if you like it then definitely go for it.

It is so pretty, but I just can’t help and think about someone that may have really wanted a dress like mine, but can’t afford it new.  I want someone to wear my dress again, I love the idea it can be used for more than one wedding!

I couldn’t do it either. I don’t even like my BOOKS to get dirty or wrinkled, so I can’t do that to my wedding dress. 🙂

I would definitely do it. I don’t plan on wearing my dress again after my wedding. I’ll have pictures to look at and video to watch to relive the moment. I say trash the dress and have fun doing it!

I couldn’t do it–I loved my dress too much!  I’m secretly hoping if I save it, maybe someday someone else will want to wear it.  I think I’d do it if I bought one of those David’s Bridal $99 dresses during those sales they have all the time.

fi and i talked to a photographer that does a LOT of TTD sessions, he told us that out of all the TTD’s he has done (over a hundred) he has only seen one that didn’t look brand new after a good dry cleaning, and that one involved paint!  i think if you just do water shots, or ocean shots you can probably dry the dress and tehn get it dry cleaned and everything will be ok!
