    I’m anti-trash the dress, but that’s only because I hope that if I have a daughter that she can include part of the dress in her ceremony (sewing a panel of it into the inside of her dress or something along those lines). I’d say for what you’re planning it’d be fine because it is something that you really want to do. It’s just not something I’m interested in.

    im dying also to do trash the dress shoot! i think it looks like a lot of fun and have had friends that took some amazing pics but they didnt really go swimming in the ocean with there dress. I would ask some dry cleaners if they have dry cleaned dresses with the sand or any wedding dresses that had been to the beach and see what they say. It might just cost extra i think in my opinion.. hope this helps a bit.. LoL

    I’m going to try to re-sell my dress most likely, so it won’t be an option for me.  But if you can do it, I would go for it.  I have seen some pictures that are amazing! and they’re from trash the dress sessions.

    My dress is a whopping $11k, and it is the prettiest thing I have ever seen, so there is NO WAY I would ever do a TTD.  I would actually cry if I permanently dirtied, or worse, destroyed it.  

    Besides, I might need to sell it after the wedding. :/

    I will do a trash the dress with a different dress, one that is about 10% the cost of my actuall dress.

    The trash the dress photos are about the concept, you don;t need to trash a dress that is more than a thousand dollars. David’s bridal often hass $99 dollar dress sales, sometimes even less.

    Thats what I will trash.

    I’ve heard from several brides who rode horses, went in the ocean (or pool), played in the grass and dirt, etc. that their dress came out spotless after going to the cleaners. Most were surprised.

    Unless you’re going to be burning or painting it, I don’t think you have too much to worry about.

    I love Trash the Dress photos! But a word of caution, my cousin was married on the beach in the Dominican. She had a reception at home afterward, and had her dress drycleaned because of the sand. Well, needless to say, it wasn’t good as new after. The hem wrinkled really badly, and it shrunk, and there was seam damage. So, if they say they can do it, know that there is always a risk the delicate fabric will not be the same after. Good luck!
