Everybody’s Doing It: Trashing Used Wedding Dresses!

Wedding season is coming to an end, which means thousands of brides will be putting their used wedding dresses into storage and their new photos in frames. But, if you want to partake in one of the freshest (and most fun!) wedding trends, it’s time to trash the dress! Brides everywhere are coming up with unique wedding photo ideas, including swimming, hiking, and even painting in their used wedding dresses. We’ve shared our ‘reuse your wedding’ ideas with you over the past few weeks, but this may take the (wedding) cake when it comes to green wedding trends.

Trash used wedding dresses to create treasured photos.

Trash the dress photo shoots, also known as “fearless bridal” or “rock the frock” photography, are one of the hottest new wedding trends. While “trashing” sounds pretty harsh for your beautiful bridal gown, there are a variety of wedding photo ideas to fit within your comfort zone. Whether you take romantic photos in the ocean, go hiking for a rustic shoot, or even enjoy the rides at a carnival, there are plenty of ways you can create more amazing photos with your dream dress after the wedding.

Trash your dress for post-wedding photo ideas.

While group and fun candid shots from your big day will be treasured forever, just think of the memories you could create if you trashed your wedding dress in a unique way. There are plenty of tried-and-true ways to ‘rock the frock,’ but we advise you to come up with wedding photo ideas that are personalized for you and your new spouse! Do you and your sweetheart love the outdoors? Go on a hike, climb trees, or get amazing underwater photos! Are you an artist? Create a painting in your gown, or even make yourself the work of art! Do you and your spouse have a special place you couldn’t go to on your big day? Take photos there after your wedding. Bonus: you won’t be afraid to get your dress a little dirty!
