Ever wonder what to do with your beautiful wedding dress after the wedding? There is a new trend after the wedding is over to trash the dress. You decide you want to do this but how do you want it done? After all, some of these dresses are worth a lot of money.
You can farm wearing it and with this, I mean really farm. Clean out a pig stall, ride a horse through the mud, lay a fence line. There are so many things. You can also rip it up and go as a zombie couple for Halloween. Speaking of Halloween, what about the couple from Beetlejuice. What if you recreated that look? You could also use your dress for target practice if that is your game. Go out to the golf course, play a game of golf. If your husband likes to fix cars, become a grease monkey. If your husband likes to make things, you can use it to cover a chair, use it in a craft project, or dust rag. The subjects are up to you. Figure out one of you or your husbands’ hobbies, hire a photographer and have fun with it.
Personally, I love underwater photography. For years now I have been doing underwater photography and my favorite session is when I have clients with wedding dresses that they don’t mind getting wet. In fact, one of my clients had a wedding dress with some BBQ stains on it. During her underwater shoot, the BBQ stain came out. She was even happier after the shoot was done. The good news about these types of photo shoots is it doesn’t ruin the dress. You can still save the dress, but also have a fun shoot.
Whatever you decide to do with your dress after the wedding is up to you. My recommendation is to have fun with it and enjoy the moment. I wish you the best in your lives together.
