I don’t know.


But I never really got why anyone would want to ruin their wedding dress..

i was thinking about it but then i read a tragic story. A newly wed bride drowned in her dress as it was too heavy for her and they couldnt pull her to the surface. So please dont do it in a pool!

@Pokemon:  Wait, you’re doing a TTD shoot before your wedding?  Are you using a different dress? 

OP, I haven’t seen quite as much about it since that Canadian bride died doing hers in a river.  Maybe people realized that some of it was actually really dangerous?

Oh my gosh! I didn’t know this happened?! I was more thinking along the lines of how wasteful it seems. Poor bride, how tragic 🙁

See… I’m the opposite. Why would you want to keep it? Children very rarely wear the thing that many years later. It goes out of style, and people lose them. Why not just have as much fun as you can in the dress? I jumped into the pool at the end of the night and had a blast. It was the perfect ending to my wedding.

It seems like a lot of people do more of “wear the dress again” shoot than actually trashing it. That’s cool with me, I just can’t imagine actually damaging or ruining my dress. I know I won’t wear it again and no children probably ever would either, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want to look at it and maybe put it on again sometimes…

I hate this trend, honestly. I will be donating mine to Brides Across America which gives free wedding dresses to military brides or Wish Upon a Wedding which provides free weddings to couples with one terminally ill partner.

I never understood it – why trash it when you could sell it or donate it to one of those charities that collects them for women without much money / military wives who need one ASAP before hubby deploys?

I’m trashing mine and I can’t wait!  i have no reason to keep it and I’d love to have awesome pics like that to look at down the road.  But I love artsy stuff like that!

the photographer I’m using does awesome fashion shoots with wedding dresses. i love this. ‘trash’ the dress, but not really because obviously it’s not real fire!

I plan to do it.  And I’ve heard TONS of brides who say that the dress actually does NOT get ruined, it comes out clean after.  I think the pictures are really awesome and a great memory and lots of brides also do it with a cheap replica from dressilyme, something that you probably wouldn’t donate or sell anyway. 

ETA:  Also, photogs and brides say it’s a really fun shoot to do and it creates lasting memories, on top of lasting pictures that are artsy and different.

@futuremrsk18:  if the dress isn’t ruined, that’s not TRASH the dress now, is it?
