    i asked this question on here before but didn’t get a response. What’s ‘trash the dress’? You take pictures of  the dress being damaged?

    I’d do it.

    I’m planning to do it after my wedding, only I’m buying a knockoff for the photoshoot and preserving the original.

    Get on a horse. That would make some really cool pictures!  I think it’s really neat when people get in the water and get underwater shots.  If you aren’t into preserving your dress (which I feel can be kind of old-fashioned), go for it!  

    I really doubt your future daughter will be itching to wear your dress in 25+ years!  I know I wore my Mom’s dress for a sorority event when I was a sophomore, but that’s the last time it even came close to fitting me and I would NEVER wear it for my own wedding (turtle neck, very victorian).  

    Go for it!

    Do it! If it was expensive, I’d say don’t bother- but it really isn’t a bad price and TOD photographs are often my favorites anyways. I say go horsebackriding. Maybe climb a tree or something. It sounds like so much fun, especially if your photographer is fun to hang around with!

    Do the horse photos! Your dress was amazeballs!

    I will admit, I am not a fan of trash the dress sessions but if it’s something you like then go for it!

    I could never actively trash my own dress – make the effort to destroy it. It makes me shudder to think! I’d try to repair the rip or keep it as is and save it. I’d rather show my dress with the rip to future generations and tell why that rip is there, then explain a trash the dress session. Just my thoughts.

    i wouldn’t recommend that you trash your dress. to me it seems an odd thing to do to something to significant and beautiful. I have only ever heard of this thing since reading posts on here; I think it’s something common in America? I have not heard of this in the UK

    I think people get the wrong idea when they hear it’s a “trash the dress” session … yeah there are people who get covered in paint, but in this case, riding a horse, I think the damage will be minimal.  If you are planning to get it repaired and cleaned anyway, go for it!!  It will be yet another extra special way to preserve one of the biggest events of your life.  Those inspiration pics are gorgeous too!!
