Yea, we sorta don't get it too.. I mean ruining the one thing you have spent so much money on and more than that has so much emotional attachment??? Not our scene. But if you're gaping in horror thinking you would never do something like that to your precious, let us tell you that the concept might be ridiculous, but some of these photographs are downright awesome and look like a lot of fun!
There are a lot of different ideas that wedding photographers offer if the couple wants to have a Trash the Dress photography session, you can ruin it with paint, push each other into the swimming pool or even go to the extreme of setting your dress on fire! Most of these shoots are very 'supermodel-magazine' type, and are usually shot at garbage dumps, abandoned places or beaches! The ones with paint look a lot like they're playing Holi!Some say that this concept was started by a photographer called John Micheal Cooper in Vegas in 2001, but has been seen in movies quite a few times, especially when the wedding breaks! Check out some of these photos:

If you're interested in getting something like this done for your wedding, most wedding photographers will probably charge a little extra or the same as what a couple shoot costs... If have a photographer who's brilliant, you could probably have an out-of-the-box Trash the Wedding shoot.. you could probably do it in a way that salvages your dress as well! The best part is, maybe you could get it done a few years after your wedding as well! So what do you think about Trashing the Dress? Ridiculous or adventurous? Would you ever do it? Comment below!
