Are you sad that you can only wear your gorgeous wedding dress once? Don`t be! There is the chance to enjoy being the bride again. Unlike at a wedding when you would be worried about looking perfect and conforming to convention, a trash the wedding dress photo-shoot frees you from these constraints and enables you to have fun and bring your true self to the fore. This time you decide who you want to be, a tender princess or a rebel.
Why you should do a trash the dress photo session. It is like your wedding photo shoot, but better.
- Your second chance to get perfect pictures.
Your wedding day is crazy busy and literally flies by. You are torn between having fun with your family and friends and capturing the perfect memories. Getting outstanding photos requires a decent amount of time which you may not have. If you choose to do trash the dress you can take as many photos as you like in a relaxed atmosphere, without being in a hurry to get back to your guests.
Maybe you have a big family and you could not afford to organize a Caribbean wedding for your 500 guests. However, you`ve decided to go there for your honeymoon. In that case you can beautifully wreck your wedding dress in front of the camera swimming in the ocean or rolling on the pearly white sand. You can also just repeat your wedding photo session in the heavenly place you`ve always dreamed about.
- Wear your so carefully picked garment again.
I don`t have to explain to you why it is so desirable to have the occasion to wear your wedding dress again. I just want to remind you that this time you can do with it whatever you want without being concerned about how it would look afterwards.
- Artistic photos.
Forest, river, small village, abandoned ship – any of these can become the picturesque background for your images as you don`t have to stress about showing up at your wedding venue on time. The contrast of a rural landscape or jungle with a white wedding dress creates dramatic style pictures that every bride imagines herself in when checking out some wedding magazines. Go to the middle of nowhere with your photographer, make your dress dusty and dirty and get the best photos ever.
- Express your creativity.
You are free to experiment with your hairstyle, makeup and accessorizes. Get bold and allow yourself to try something different. Combine your dress with those colorful rain shoes, huge shiny necklace or wear artsy make up. This is the time to break stereotypes about how a bride should look.
What is trash the dress and where did the idea come from?
The first photographer who started the Trash the dress trend was a Las Vegas wedding photographer John Michael Cooper, but the idea had been used in Hollywood prior to that.
This trend became very popular thanks to the romanticism surrounding the concept. A beautiful bride walking in the woods or jumping in puddles in the rain without being afraid of damaging her stunning dress is fascinating.
While the name `trash the dress photo shoot` implies that you destroy your wedding dress, it is not necessary. It is completely up to you weather you want to paint it, tear it apart, soak it in water or just walk, lie down or pose without doing any harm to it.
How to make it special?
- Choose a location that would mean something to you
If you love the sea and the beach, talk with your photographer about underwater pictures, breathtaking locations on a cliff or doing water sports in the dress. Be careful though if you do choose to do water sports as your movements would be limited by your dress. A good photographer will take amazing pictures without you risking your life.
Are you a motorcycle-lover? Tell your photographer so that he can help you to organize a bike and search for the most scenic roads around.

Your wedding is over, your don`t have to stress about seating arrangements, whether the cake is beautiful enough or your wedding speech. Have fun. Your positivity will bring out the best of you in the pictures.
