As someone who loves weddings I am fascinated with the launches of new bridal lines, engagement ring trends, color combinations, cake designs, and the hundreds of other details that go into the biggest day of people’s lives. My wedding Pinterest board has over 670 photos and it only keeps growing. However, one odd trend that keeps popping up is trash the dress.
I first learned about the trash the dress idea when my handy USA Today news alerts shared the story of Shelby Swink and their article, “Dumped bride makes splash with ‘trash the dress”. For her situation the paintball pictures were great way to cope and it got me thinking, do brides who actually go through with their weddings still trash the dress? The answer is an overwhelming yes. While some photographers offer trash the dress services in pools most brides seem to go swimming in the ocean or play in paint. Here is are a collection of some unique trash the dress shots.
This trend to me just seems a bit odd but I do have to say one thing, if you are going to trash the dress, trash you real dress, not a second you bought for photos or because it “sparkles under water”. Go big or go home. And to answer the question, no, I would not trash the dress, I would frame it!
Would you trash the dress?
