    So before I found my dream dress, I was like “Heck Yeah!!!! I’m trashing the dress!!!” Now that I have it, I still want to do it, but the idea of ruining the dress hurts a little bit.

    Personally I’m not into it. It feels aggressively wasteful to me. Of course — I haven’t exactly done anything productive with my dress. It’s sitting in my closet.

    I love love looovvve my dress, but I’m not attached to it. I think I may try to sell it after the wedding,  if its not too mashed up.

    I do think “trash the dress” shoots are so cool though!!

    I would be worried about what your grandparents would think since they bought it. I mean I’m all for trashing it if you bought it… but it may come off as ruining a wedding present to them.

    I don’t care for trash the dress pictures. I don’t know, I just find them pointless and stupid.

    I think it depends on what form of “trash the dress” you decide to do.  My cousin is a farm girl, born and raised, and on her wedding day she was so scared to do all the fun “down and dirty” farm pictures she wanted to do, so instead she had a “trash the dress” shoot afterwards and didn’t purposesly trash it, just did some amazing pictures with the horses, and in the pens, and with cowboy boots going through the mud, and she lay in the field and posed on all the machinery, she even got into the lake nearby and her dress floated in the water, it was beautiful and she wasn’t so much “trashing the dress”, just not scared to get a little dirty.  Her dress got dirty, but she was able to get it dry-cleaned back to almost perfection.  On the other hand, a friend of mine did an actual trash the dress and her purpose was to trash the dress.  She had paint, dirt, scirssors (she actually cut apart her dress).  It was definitely what I would call beautiful artwork, but not what I would want to do with my wedding dress (that kind of trashing is more popular for divorces, I know many divorcees who have trashed their dresses, burnt their marriage certificates, etc. in an “divorce party”).  I think having a photo shoot where you get those beautiful pictures wherein the dress may get a little dirty are perfect trash the dress shoots and I want to do one, on the other hand I think the actual purpose to ruin the dress sends the wrong message if you just got married and are happy.

    I just don’t understand the concept of “Trashing the dress”… Like I get it makes some neat pics, but why would you want to trash a dress you spent hundreds of dollars on and that signifies so much about you and your wedding day in general? I would rather donate it to something like the brides project to raise money for cancer than “trash it”..

    I’m going to try to sell my dress so trashing it is not an option and if nobody wants to buy it then I’ll just keep it for myself!
