I guess I don’t get this.  Did you not get married and needed to do something cathartic with your dress?  If so, good idea! : )

I really don’t get it.  Yes, I can see how the video would be fun to make, but that was such a beautiful dress.  If you didn’t want to sell it, you could have donated it.  Someone out there would really have loved to have it.

Think of how many disadvantaged women would have loved the opportunity to have that dress had it been donated…

Tess63110 :  it’s becoming pretty common for brides to want something “fun” to do with their dresses after the wedding. Trash your dress seems to be fun for some. 

OP – cool video! For me I’d only do it if I hadn’t paid a shit load of money for my dress.

There is no way I would do this to my dress, but there are some trash the dress shoots I’ve seen that sort of worked. It looks like you had fun and given that weddings often are very self-indulgent to start with I see no problem with doing whatever you want with the dress after too. You are entitled to create whatever bridal memories you want! 

Personally prefer trash the dress shoots where the dress is trashed as an organic side effect of the environment, like if your dress would have ripped from getting stuck on nails and gotten dirty all over from posing directly on the floor of this derelict church you were in. I didn’t see the connection between the location and randomly throwing colour powder. Seaside/in-water shoots can look very dramatic too!

Nobody is saying you did not have the right to trash it. I don’t think anyone is holding wedding dresses on pedestals either.

If I have any article of clothing that I don’t need/want anymore I am going to donate it rather than destroy it. Not everyone feels that way, I get it.

Sorry you aren’t getting response you were hoping for, I guess?
