Beautiful pictures! 

I knew someone who trashed their dress more than a year after they got married. I thought that was kind of odd.

isadelc507 :  LOVELY! I love this idea. You can donate a dress, does not mean it will not sit there in that consignment shop forever. The only time I would think this was ridiculous is if the bride paid an outrageous amount for her dress, but I am against that too. Also, more than likely, no child of yours will ever actually want to wear it, because it will not fit their style. So why not enjoy it a few more times before retiring it!!?? And I am sure you and your husband had a great time doing this. 

The only time I am dead set against this idea is when the bride endagers herself doing so. As with the one bride who got swept down the river when her dress became to heavy for her to control.

I plan to do it too, and I actually made my dress. We just have not decided where and when yet.

I typed out a huge long comment and decided no one would read it all and many would not like hearing it.

I love the idea of these photos and I plan on doing it myself. We have worked very hard to afford our wedding dresses and we all have personal reasons for choosing a trash the dress session. Personally it will be emotionally therapuetic for me for years to come.

Those that don’t “get” it never will so there is no reason to explain. It’s deeply personal and no one should feel guily about it.
