    You will need to dry clean in between trashing it and wearing it for your AHR. I've heard of brides doing it locally before they return home and it is MUCH cheaper. It will probably be really dirty after your AHR as well, you'd be surprised how black the bottom will get after being dragged on the ground.

        For people who have done trash the dress sessions, how do you dry it before you have to bring it back home on the airplane?  I would be worried that the dress would still not be dry when trying to pack it and carry it on the plane.  Just wondering what some people's experiences have been.  Thanks

        My dress dried in a day- just hang it outside over the balcony of your room- the warm weather and sun will dry it out no problem!

          Congratulations on your engagement ladies! I actually have a bride who bought an additional dress for the Trash your Dress shoot, doesn't have to be expensive but at least you won't feel so bad when your trash it, AND you'll have 2 dresses to take pictures in!

           

          Good luck and happy planning!

            This is the first time I hear something like it.  I have to say that it looks awesome, the magic that can come from it is amazing.  

             

            Everyone should try it at least once.

                  Hello all you fine forum folks! We've had some fantastic "trash the dress" shoots lately and I just wanted to share some photos with you all. I also wanted to restate that it doesn't have to be a "trash" the dress, when we're in cenotes it's often more like a "rinse" the dress, the cenotes are fresh water and do little or no damage! At Del Sol, we know that your dress has a lot of meaning to you and we will go as far as you like or as gentle as you wish, if you end up just wanting photos around the jungle and cenote without actually getting in the water, that is totally cool! Many of our brides do bring a second dress, you can buy them second-hand, have them made to look like your designer gown or go with something completely out there. Some brides brought multiple dresses to wear, not just their wedding gown, we have such fun with bright colors too! This is about creativity, freedom and expressing yourself with your partner in an awesome shoot you will always remember! We've never had a bride express regrets, only joy at a fun day and photos they treasure.

                   

                  Here are some of our recent sessions...you can see the full slideshows at these links:
