After the wedding, some women keep their wedding dresses preciously. In principle, they want to keep a memory while others want to pass the garment on to their descendants. Of course, not all of them aspire to these goals. There are those for whom the event is much more important than the clothing. These are often more inclined to be tempted by a photoshoot trash the dress after the wedding.
What is the trash the dress?
This is a phenomenon born in the United States in the 2000s. You will understand the name of this type of photo shoot comes is related to the look of the wedding dress. Mainly because we sometimes agree that the wedding ceremony is a much more anticipated event for a woman than for a man. Which is not always true! But also because in many cultures, mainly Western, the bride wears an immaculate white dress for this occasion and prefers that it remain so at least until the end of the event. I will pass you the details on the symbolism of this dress color ...
I would also like to point out that it is possible for a woman to get married with a dress of a different color, or even pants ...
The principle of a trash the dress session that usually happens after the wedding is to tell yourself that it doesn't matter if the dress is soiled or damaged. The main objective is to take pictures once the pressure of the event has passed, and to have a moment together as officially married. And take the opportunity to take original wedding photos or even a video.
It is common to perform trash the dress sessions in places where it is unconventional to wear a dress: an abandoned factory, at the beach partially or completely submerged, or on a paintball field for example. Some dear couples sometimes really smear the dress with mud or paint to meet the literal definition. Others prefer to cut out parts such as the train to move more easily for the occasion or to make a skirt. Ultimately there is something for everyone. The objective of the trash the dress is to shake up the traditional codes of wedding clichés with typical postures.
What are the advantages of the trash the dress?
This type of photo shoot will give your dress a second life. Indeed, in what way you may never wear this garment again a second time. In addition, it is much less common for a mother to give her old wedding dress to her daughter for her future marriage. Rather, we are seeing the development of dress rental services. However, I advise you not to consider a trash the dress session with a rented dress. You would risk losing your deposit and surely upset a merchant.
Where was I? Yes, the possibility of reusing this dress for beautiful photos rather than letting it turn yellow in a wardrobe. A trash the dress session. can also be a great idea if you are nostalgic and want to remember the exchange of your vows. And then this style of couple photos generally makes excellent memories to see again and share with relatives, children etc ...
What are the possible settings?
In the trash the dress, anything goes. Nevertheless, it is recommended to remain cautious. By seeking originality at all costs, we can sometimes take risks. Although photos in an ambulance are very original, I don't think that's the point. But as long as you are careful anything is possible. You can consider staging in a cave, in the mud or in the middle of the forest, in the air by parachute. Ultimately the limits are the imagination of the bride and groom and their photographer.
