Trash the Dress?

A new trend that seems to be popping up everywhere is for brides to "trash their dress" after the wedding. This usually consists of the bride getting in some sort of water whether it be the ocean, a lake, a river or even a pool! We want to know if you think this is something you would do to your dress...even if it is for the perfect picture!?

I love TTD sessions! The pictures that come out of them are so amazing. I would definitely do one (in a perfect world) but I'm not sure I would completely trash my dress. I don't think I could make myself jump in a body of water with my dress on, but I would be willing to prance around town taking fun pics in it. :)

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
