I did one!  It was an absolute blast!  It was great to put on my gown one more time and to be more relaxed while taking the photos.

So of my photos are in my gallery if you want to check them out for some more ideas!

That sounds like a great idea!! I always cringe at the thought of spending so much on a dress I’ll only wear once, so this sounds awesome!

I think very few people actually trash the dress during a session. I had a “trash the dress” but that just meant I went in the ocean and layed in the sand. In no way was my dress trashed, so essentially it could be called treasure the dress. I’ve only very rarely seen pictures where they actually trash it with paint, mud, etc. I would never do that. But any excuse to wear your dress again and get more pretty photos is fine by me!

I’m planning to do something like this.  I used to be a ballet dancer for 15 years and my dress reminds me of a ballet costume (all tulle) so my photographer is going to take pictures of me in my dress with my pointe shoes at my old studio…like the photo in my avatar.  That’s actually were I got the idea for it.  After that, I’ll have my dress cleaned/preserved.

@PuntaCanaBride:  ditto this.  although i was nervous about ruining my dress as i needed to sell it.  so i ended up getting a cheap dress that i thought was better suited for the pics i wanted.  

so i guess you can’t call what i did a “treasure the dress” shoot as it was a different dress. My photog referred to it as a “post wedding photo shoot”.  Which was cool since we never did epics or any other traditional wedding related pics.

I’ve done one and I’d like to do more. It was an excuse to put my dress on again and I didn’t damage it at all!

I am going to donate my dress to Brides Against Breast Cancer, so this photo shoot is something I would be VERY interested in once I get married. I had no idea about this, thanks for the info!!

I was thinking of doing something like this if we end up with bad weather on our wedding day and don’t get very many good pictures. We’ll see! But I definitely don’t want to trash it.

@Lyssabee:  i love this idea. i am SO unhappy with how my wedding day pictures turned out (just of me) and didnt know what to do about it. This wont change the fact that i hate those, but maybe i can get some taken like this that will turn out better and not make me feel so bad about myself! Thanks for sharing the idea!!
