Are You Fearless Enough to Trash The Dress?

by Katherine Callaghan

If you’re a fearless bride who loves a little rule breaking; then you’ve come to the right place! If you are thinking about what you’re going to do with your dress after the big day, might you consider a trash the dress photoshoot?

So what exactly is a trash the dress photoshoot? (It’s definitely not what you’re thinking, promise!). After your wedding exit, some couples opt to do something crazy, wild and totally fearless; like jumping into a fountain at their venue, or jumping in the ocean or pool at the beach resort–might we add–the bride is in her wedding dress! Some may be horrified and gasp at the idea of *trashing* of their dress, especially since you spent so much money, but like we said, following traditions isn’t for every bride. Before you decide on trashing the dress, be sure to discuss this with your wedding photographer as some photographers may not do this kind of photoshoot.

While you may not be able to save your dress for sentiment value after you trash your dress, we will admit, the photos from the trashing of the dress make for some artistic and elegant wedding photos to look back on. We took a wonder on Instagram and Pinterest to see how other brides #trashthedres, and we have to admit, they make a compelling case!
