Hello Brides!

I am considering a "trash the dress" session with our photographer? I love the idea of taking pictures in that beautiful turquoise ocean but DO NOT WANT TO RUIN my gown! I am starting to consider a second dress (nothing too expensive) that I would change into after the ceremony, dinner and toast is done...I was thinking I can wear the second gown (of course a lighter fabric) when we are ready to party and dance the night away and then wear it the next day to do the "trash the dress" session...any thoughts on a second gown? I love my wedding gown so much that I just don't think I can "trash" it!

 

Thoughts/suggestions???

Trash the Dress pics almost never actually "trash" the dress... most report that they end up cleaner than they were on the beach before! You can actually trash it if you want, but if you communicate to your photographer that you are worried about it, they will help you be careful. There is no greater chance of it getting wrecked during the TTD than during the wedding day itself.

I love the idea. I am going to do a trash the dress shoot, but I'm not going to use my actual wedding dress. Instead I bought a cheap dress for this. But the pics look great.

No, it won't take away from the shoot. That's what I'm going to do during mine.
