Trash the Dress

Trash the dress is a photography shoot a bride decides to do if she wants to recycle her gown instead of keeping it. The point of it is to feel free to do whatever you want in the dress without qualms or worries about what might happen to it or what might come of it. Here are a few of my favorite photo shoots. I saved my wedding gown so I could do this before I throw it away. I mean, let's be realistic here, no child of mine is going to wear that dress 20 years down the line. I like the idea of using it again one last time just to feel free spirited and beautiful; a rustic beauty.

I thought the trash the dress for bridesmaids was pretty neat too! That's an idea I had never seen before. It's just smart because often times those dresses are never warn again either. It's a smart use to create everlasting memories with your girlfriends doing something crazy and fun in an abnormal environment all dressed up and ready for some fun. I saw a few husband shoots as well. The creativity behind these photographers are phenomenal.
