I’m in Orleans (east end Ottawa) and I wanna do trash the dress sooooo badly mostly because I have/am making both my dresses, and I think it would be fun to trash one and dave the other. Sadly, we aren’t paying for our photographer (it’s a gift, and we can’t afford it otherwise) so a TTD photoshoot won’t be available for us.

As much I will love my dress, if I’m completely honest with myself, I’m never gonna wear it again and I’m sure no one else will. In 25 years, I’m thinking my (hopefully) daughter will want to wear something completely different. The same case as my mom’s dress. Poofy shoulders and rocking a hat.. I think I would be up for a post-wedding/trash the dress session so I could get maximum use out of my dress. Plus it gives us more time to enjoy the pictures being taken and get to the reception even faster.

I hate the idea.  Trash the dress really does mean TRASH THE DRESS.  The photographer wants you to get in water, roll around in the sand or grass etc.   Not that I am living in a dream world thinking that my dress would not get dirty, but what a waste of money.  And my beautiful dress… I do think it is a trend and probably will think it is silly in a few years.  

A day after shoot is something different and can work for some people.  We had a destination wedding and LOVED our photos.  We had a party when we got back ( a few weeks later) and booked our photographer for a day after shoot to do some portraits in NYC.  We wanted some photos with the family and friends that couldn’t make it.  Our photographer is from NY also. LOVE HER –   Patricia Kantzos.  


Save your dress!

hmm.. i’m not into the trend because I’m just not into a "photoshoot" at all. I want our photos to be natural, and when was the last time anyone saw me jumping into a lake in a gown?

Darren — perhaps you could find an expensive wedding gown and have a model do a mockup aftershoot so you can build your portfolio for brides to be?  I know that I would want to see some shots before I’d commit myself to anything.
