wedding feet

I just read about a wedding tradition called Trash the Dress. The idea is after the wedding you pose for pictures in spots that will completely ruin your wedding dress. "Trash it. Get it dirty. Get it wet. Roll around in the mud. Drench it in the ocean. Totally trash it." 

I don't think I could trash my wedding dress... my mom made it for me, but some of the pictures are amazing and they look like fun.


  1. I'll have to remember this. Hubby Dubby and I are planning our second wedding (we recently reunited after being seperated for a year). I'm doing a mainly handmade wedding but the one thing I am buying is my dress, however, we're not going over the top. The dress I have picked out is from Target and only $160. I can afford to trash that.

  2. I didn't even like the idea of lying down on the grass in mine! I want to have it to play with as the years pass!

  3. Oh my...I couldn't trash my wedding dress. If I have a baby I'll use the train of my dress to make his/her christening gown.

  4. Mine got trashed, but I didn't know it until the next day. We got married in Vegas and had a reception after we got back home. After the reception, we went to Pioneer Square (Big Seattle party place). The next day I saw my dress had a coffee stain down the leg. It didn't come out after dry cleaning. No big loss though...I wore it twice and it doesn't fit anymore anyway. Also, it was a David's Bridal $300 special, so no family legacy is attached to it. Despite this, I still have it.

  5. I am so bummed that wasn't around when I got married (14.5 years ago!)- I think that would've been a blast! My pix are all very conventional.

  6. HOLA ladies,
    I noticed the track backs coming to the to my website and wanted to say thanks for the visits! Trashing the dress had been so much fun for us and we are so excited to be offering a new buzz/trend that breaks all the rules of conventional wedding photographs...

    I would like to offer these thoughts:

    First, more often than not, our sessions in the water actually "clean the dress" vs mess it up. A wine stained dance floor and dirt from a normal evening will punish the dress WAY more than rolling around in the sand and hanging out in water :)

    Second, My friend had developed an amazing website to showcase trashing the dress. I highly recommend you taking time to visit his site.

    Cheers & much love,
