“Trash the dress”, also known as “fearless bridal” or “rock the frock”, is a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is out of place. It is generally shot in the style of fashion or glamour photography."
Congratulations on your wedding!
Now you’ve officially tied the knot it’s time to decide what you do with your wedding dress. Do you store it? Sell it? Or are you not quite ready to give up on the fun of wearing it just yet?
Trash the dress photo shoots have been popular since the early 2010s. But just because they’re not currently trending doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with a trash the dress photoshoot!
Engagement shoots, pre-wedding photos, and first-looks are increasingly popular, and the trash the dress photoshoot are the photos you can have taken after your wedding!
They’re a great way to get some more unique and stunning photos without having to ruin your wedding dress on the big day. They allow you to incorporate other elements that you love and want to celebrate together into photos. Plus they’re a good excuse to get more gorgeous photos of you and your love!
Some couples want to have a trash the dress shoot without actually trashing the dress, and that’s fine too! Head to your local op shop or buy a cheaper second-hand dress online if you want to make the most of this idea......
Indeed, the dress is often made to measure, and designed to your own personal specification, and will have many happy memories of your wedding day attached to it, but I think it is a pity for it to go into a box, and not to be seen. And while the groom spent the wedding day feeling like James Bond in a tux or made-to-measure suit, now we can do something a little bit different so that he is James Bond.
What I Love about trash the dress shoots, is it that gives you the chance to show off your wedding dress in a Location that can be somewhere Very Different from Reception Venue.
