There is a new fad in weddings, after weddings to be exact. Where the bride, groom and her maids take to trashing the wedding dress. I have seen my first pictures of a 'trash the dress' occasion where the bride and her groom had their pictures taken in poses and places that would ultimately ruin the dress - by either dirt, water or tearing. And then the groom disappears from the picture, bride is in another outfit and her and her maids are posing in places, ripping, shredding, tearing apart the gown then using pieces as blankets, scarves, throwing them in the air, running with ribbons of the dress behind them, etc...
The dress in that particular photo shoot was stated to be worth $6,500. I have heard of other situations where the dress cost as much as $25,000.
What do you think of this fad? Would you ever participate in this Trash The Dress occasion with your maids? Would you do it with/for a friend?
