How would you trash the dress?

September 27, 2008  |  Inspiration

I have heard too many brides say they didn’t have time to take as many pictures as they would have liked to at the wedding. Enter this brilliant idea. You have spent the last year picking out the dress, altering the dress, protecting the dress and drycleaning the dress. How about instead of storing the dress, you enjoy it one last time and trash it? Before you prescribe me medication, check out what Trash the Dress Web site says:

Go ahead, you know you want to. Trash it. Get it dirty. Get it wet. Roll around in the mud. Drench it in the ocean. Totally trash it. Why? … Why not? You’ve made a commitment to your husband. He’s your one and only true love, right? Then you’ll never need the dress again. And no, your daughter won’t wear it in 20-30 years. So you have two choices:

1) Suffocate it in plastic and throw it in a closet 

2) Show your husband how committed you are by trashing the dress, and get some great fun pictures while you do it! “

The wonderful and talented local photographer Jason Cohen has had several interesting photo shoots with brides willing to get alittle dirty. But if you aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into the ocean or mudpit try a few shots standing in the rain. Think The Notebook, not cheesy spiderman upside down kiss!

  1. is that girl in a swamp?!? i think the frugal side of me would die if i got my costly dress beyond gross, but i love the idea of getting back in it and taking some pictures i avoided (like tree shots or sitting down shots) since i didn’t want to deal with the drycleaners before the big day.

    seriously though, how is that algae in her hair and on her dress sexy?? nothing turns a man on faster than fungus and bacteria…yummm. i’d definitely opt for the cool tree pic 🙂

    see ya saturday!!!
