You get a call from your photographer asking if you would be interested in a, “Trash the Dress” photo shoot.  What? you want me to trash the dress! A $7000 designer gown on the beach or maybe in a grassy field or even better, a junk yard… are you kidding!”

Yes, crazy as it may sound, it’s soooo much fun and you can get some crazy shots that you will want on your wall forever… and of course will be able to share and maybe even get some notoriety online at the same time!

Don’t be concerned about the detailing in the wedding dress.

It will be pretty much unrecognizable by the time you are done with the shoot. Just look for one that has a similar shape. You will be blown away by how much fun this will be for you both and the images should be pretty amazing too.  After the stress of the wedding day and following a time-line and having to be just right, most couples love this experience and laugh so hard at times, the photographer’s usually are right there with them, rolling on the ground….seriously a blast to trash the dress!
