“trash the what?” as most people would say!
Trash the Dress is a relatively new concept here but dress trashing sessions have been going on overseas for a while now. So what is it exactly?
It’s a session in your wedding dress and we….well….trash it! The idea behind trashing the dress is that 99.9% of wedding dresses go into their dry cleaning box and never see the light of day again. Lets face it, the likelyhood of your daughter wearing it is slim, you’re never going to make it shorter and wear it again (think 27 Dresses if you’ve seen the movie!) and you have photos of it looking glamourous from your wedding to look back on. So why keep it collecting dust and turning yellow in a box? You’re married, you’re in it for the long run, so why not show the ultimate commitment to your husband by trashing the dress!
The level of trashing is completely up to you, but the idea is to go out and get some awesome images of you doing things you never would have considered doing in it on your wedding day. Think lying in the dirt, getting it wet or just sitting around like you would on a normal day…but in your dress 🙂
It’s awesome fun and you’ll get some gorgeous images as a gift for your husband for his birthday or your next anniversary – cool huh?
