This months’ featured idea for your destination wedding is…trash the dress photos.
Maybe you’ve heard of it and maybe not. But the truth is that it’s a pretty awesome concept.
I first discovered this concept of “Trash the dress” photos a few days before my cousin’s destination wedding many years ago. We were in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and she invited me to the mall in search of a dress for her “trash the dress” shoot. At the time I had never heard of this concept, but I was instantly on board. And it became an absolute must for my very own destination wedding a few years later.
I’m kind of obsessed. It’s one of my favorite parts of a destination wedding. While anyone can have a “trash the dress” photo shoot, they’re really popular for destination weddings because you get to take advantage of the stunning backdrops available abroad.
See more of this trash the dress photo shoot in Costa Rica.
Trash the Dress photos are usually taken the day after your wedding. It’s so much fun, sexy, romantic, and makes for AH-mazing photos that you will cherish forever.
See more photos from this real trash the dress photo shoot in Mexico, and read the awesome advice the bride shared about how to make the best out of your trash the dress shoot.
Not convinced you want to ruin your designer gown? I’m personally an advocate of it because, are you (or your daughter) really going to ever wear this dress again? Really?? Why not have fun with it and make some memories that will last a lifetime.
I will never, ever regret “trashing” my designer gown. Despite going neck deep into the ocean water and then rolling around the sand in my soaked gown, my dry cleaner was able to restore my dress to its original condition.
Still not sold on the idea of trashing your precious wedding gown? Then do what so many other brides do and get an inexpensive dress just for your shoot.
But whatever you do, if you can afford to, go ahead and book a trash the dress shoot. You’ll be glad you did!
