Trash the Dress

It took me only one visit to the bridal store to get my dress. To be exact, it was the third dress I tried and after that, I knew that I didn’t need to look any further. I was so excited and couldn’t wait for the wedding day to come.


I know brides spend a great deal looking for that perfect dress, your dream dress, and the way you feel when you find the ONE is indescribable. So, when I first heard of trash the dress, I didn’t really know how to react. You purposely ruin your dress? You what?! Go in the ocean? Sit on top of a dumpster? Wash your car with the dress ON? Sit on train tracks!?


Totally crazy. Almost insane. A complete waste of money. RIGHT?


WRONG!! The real waste is my wedding dress, hung in my closet, never to be worn again. Really. My husband cringes every time he sees my dress, which takes up more than half of my closet space. Oh, and the veils (I had three). And the tiara. And the shoes. And then I started thinking. How long is this thing going to sit in my closet? Forever? Am I wishing that one day, my daughter is going to walk down the aisle in my dress?


Well, now I wish that I did a trash the dress session for myself.


To my past, present, and future brides…here are some images from a photog shootout session I did in San Clemente. I would love to do a trash the dress session with you…let me know if you are interested!


To start off, here are some pre-trashing images… 








…and the trashing begins…slowly, but surely…
