I want to do some daring and avant grade images and some of the things I wish to do with get me dirtier than I want to be on my wedding day. Also I’d like to do it in a different season than my wedding.

I’m doing an underwater trash the dress in Hawaii. The photographers pics are insane. I want to hang it over our bed. Everyday I will look at that picture and love it.

I didn’t trash my dress in my shoot. I couldn’t bear the thought of ruining my expensive wedding dress. I did my shoot because I was a ballet dancer for over 20 years and I chose my wedding dress in large part because it reminded me of a Swan Lake costume I’d worn years ago. Plus, I wanted another reason to put it on again.

@Coral99:  We are doing it for a few reasons:

  • The pictures look beautiful
  • I don’t like dust collectors and see no reason to hang something in my closet
  • We love pictures and want to get the “most” out of the dress
  • I will never wear it again and neither will anyone else
  • We are doing a weddingmoon and now I won’t have to bring the damn thing back with me 😛

@Coral99:  I initially thought about 2 dresses, but then I’d be wasting more money. I only need one dress for the one day, so I might as well make a photoshoot out of it. I don’t want to end up spending more money to save a dress that doesn’t need saving 😛 I guess it’s “sentimental value” but for me, that’s what the pictures are for. They will show the entire process from getting ready to TTD.

I don’t usually form attachments to objects, so I never balked at the idea. FI showed me the pictures he wanted to use as our inspiration and I never looked back.

@Coral99:  Lol, but “you should” is not a logical reason. You’re killing me 😛 Now you’re going to spend money preserving something to sit in your closet. I like you, but I want to shake you 😉

FI isn’t home (hence why I’m here – he’s on nights, boo) and he handles photos and wedding planning things. However, I did a quick search  through some of his folders and this is what we are thinking (romantic, sexy, and playful). We want to have fun with it. For us, this will be preserving the dress in memories and photos 🙂
