Ham1320: Thank you! I’m very happy that I have those photos, and that my dress is pristine at the same time!

And just an additional comment, had I had two dresses and one would have been more trashed after the reception, like in your case, I would have looked into making that second dress into a baptising gown for our baby. This idea might not apply to you at all, but I’ve heard other people doing it and I think it’s a really nice way of starting out a tradition unless you already have an heirloom baptising gown.

Ham1320:  its not for everyone. For me, to trash a dress that was so beautifully created, the details, etc, it would be an insult to the designer to trash it. Not only that, but I hope to one day be able to pass it down. If I should be blessed with a daughter and she decides not to wear it, I plan on dying it and wearing it myself to her wedding. And, it was a big purchase for me and to just throw that down the drain? No thanks. 

I can see doing a trash the dress shoot with a dress that was similar to your wedding dress that you didn’t spend a lot of money on. BUt I still wouldn’t do it, its just not for me

Ham1320: They are a big part of my tradition as well, so we’ll definitely baptise our child even though DH isn’t feeling the need. I would have loved to start it out with a new dress, specific for our new family, made out of my wedding dress. However, I only have one dress and I just can’t imagine putting a scissor to it!

Anyway, glad if I could provide some inspiration!

Ham1320: Just so happy to be able to help, and who would have thought a TTD-thread would end up with a baptism gown in the making! 🙂 If you do go ahead with this idea, I would love to see the photos of the new dress once it has been made.
