Bridesmaid dresses get all the heat when it comes to the “you’ll never wear it again” stigma—but what about wedding gowns? You’ll REALLY never wear that again and, despite some women’s dreams, the chances of your daughter wanting to wear it on her wedding day are slim to none. While the sentimental argument for keeping it vacuum packed and stored away in the back of your closet is certainly valid, many brides are choosing to “trash the dress” in a post-wedding photo shoot.
From paint-covered, to water-drenched, to even dirt-stained, these photos from Marquin and Dan, Essential Moments Photos, Trash The Dress Europe, and Rachel Richter show the unique photo opportunity one can get from choosing to “trash the dress.”
What do you think? It’s certainly unconventional, and when most brides purchase their gown they probably aren’t envisioning it rolling around in the sand and water, but the photo potential is wonderful!
