One of the most common questions a bride asks is what she should do with the wedding dress after she's said "I do"? It’s a tricky one to answer considering that it’s probably the most expensive dress she’s ever bought, yet only worn once. Those who can’t bear to part with it prefer to preserve it for sentimental value or to pass on to their daughters. And others take a more practical approach and sell it in hopes of making some of their money back. But there’s a third option — trashing the wedding dress. While most may gasp in horror at soiling a four-figure dress that carries memories, there’s no denying that a trash the dress photoshoot makes for stunning — and equally memorable — photos. Whether you’re frolicking in the waves or tossing color bombs, trashing the dress creates a bonding experience with your partner captured in a unique way. Not convinced? Let these pictures do the talking.
