Take a Spin on the Rides...

Take a Spin on the Rides... If you love the merry-go-round, ferris wheel, roller coasters, and bumper cars like I do take a trip to Six Flags or your local carnival to take whimsical photos in your wedding gown. Play some games and have your groom win the biggest prize for his new wife. Chow down on your favorite carnival foods like corn dogs, funnel cake, and cotton candy to make a tasty photo! Create sweet memories with each other having fun and feeling like a kid all over again!

Get Messy with Paint...

Get Messy with Paint... Maybe the dry cleaners can help this bride get the paint out of her gown! But if your not looking to save your dress and just want to have a messy, crazy photo shoot with your groom get wild with paint and a funky setting like the graffiti** **background in this photo. Old or used gowns that can be found on ebay or weddingbee classifieds are great finds for trash the dress photo shoots, especially when you want to preserve your own.

Walk in a Winter Wonderland...

Walk in a Winter Wonderland... Winter is a beautiful time with snow on the trees and at your feet. This trash the dress photo would be wonderful for a save the date or an engagement photo as well. The bride's gown is glowing in the snow as she cuddles up with her groom to stay warm. When you're finished with the romantic shots start throwing snowballs at each other and build a Mr. and Mrs. snow couple!

Hop on a Hot Rod...

Cars and women together have always been sexy. So put your wedding gown on, show some leg, and hop on that hot rod! If you don't have a mustanglike the one in this photo see if there are any classic car shows coming to your area or rent one from your local Hertz. A trolley, bus or truck make for great automobile photos too. Hop in the back of your pick-up or horse, put on your cowboy hat and boots and you'll be one sexy cowgirl in her wedding dress.

Rock the Waves...

Rock the Waves... The beach** **has become one of the most popular locations for trash the dress photo shoots. How can it not be with romantic photos like this one. Getting wet, playing in the sand, and kissing on the beach brings scenes from movies and romance novels to life. The ocean and the beach is a favorite spot for my fiance and I; he proposed to me on the beach last year! A trash the dress session at the same location would be perfect for us. Let the sand cool your toes, be silly in love in the water, and kiss each other at sunset as your perfect day becomes a perfect night.

Hi Sheila. Yes I bought more dresses. But these are inexpensive dresses that I bid on an auction site. All of these dresses were $100 & under including shipping. The Maggies are beautiful. Both are Memories Collection. The DAvid's are fairly new styles and still available for sale at their website. Some are store samples and some were preowned. One Maggie was never worn due to cancelled wedding. That was sad. But it has a new home now with lots of love. I'm much better now. Taking care of myself and watching my weight closely. Those dresses inspire me to take care of myself and not to let myself go. Overall, it's a good thing. All dresses are still wearable and have not been damaged.

Hi again Xannyyy, Im so glad you are finding ideas here that you love! You are a great friend here to us at AllWomenStalk. If you click on my name under my photo you can find all my posts about wedding ideas that I have done through the year. I love the paint on too...so fun and cheerful. I hope you have a wonderful day. :) What do you have to do with the house, are you building it or remodeling?

OMG! WHY would anyone trash their wedding dress?!?!? I was so shocked when I saw the title of this article! I mean, yes I'm probably only ever going to wear it once in my life, but I still want to invest in it and make sure it's absolutely perfect! I would NEVER in a million years trash a perfect dress.

Hey Cherry! A lot of women feel the same way as you and I still dont know if I would do it with my own gown, esp since Im thinking of reselling it. I would love to buy a gown at a thrift store and have fun with a trash the dress shoot though. I think it would be a great way to have fun with your new husband! Thank you for reading All Women Stalk! :)

Amanda that sounds like a beautiful idea to use paint to trash your dress by a mural, very inspiring. You will have to let us know which way you went. And if you're thinking of donating your dress, maybe you can do so after a good cleaning! Or maybe find a wedding gown from a thrift store for your trash the dress photo shoot. Either way good luck and come back for me ideas! :) Thanks for finding us!

I would like to make love in my wedding dress. I have not done it and I'm not sure how my husband would react to the idea. But I think it qualifies as trashing the dress cause the dress can get messed up but definitely not destroyed. Got married in 1989 outside the country and I have never worn a wedding dress. Finally bought a pre-owned one from an auction site and when I got it, I just lost myself. I was crying like a little girl while hugging the dress. My husband saw me and he freaked out. I told him that I just fell in love with this dress and that I wish I have done this sooner while I was younger. My husband loves the dress but I have to tell him gradually, slowly about my intentions with this dress and him. But first I have to loose some pounds in the right places that way he can't refuse. Sorry no pics or videos on this one.

Hi everyone!!! Just to give you an update from my first post, well, it finally happened!!!! Yes, we did trash the dress so beautifully and passionately that we bought a few more. The dress was definitely NOT harmed. I made sure that my husband would not go crazy on my dress and destroy it in the process. There were a few moments where I felt him pulling on the dress so I had to stop what we're doing and reminded him of MY policy. He had no choice but to comply or else... There were a few instances that were kinda funny while we were doing it. Who would think that an innocent white wedding dress can cause harm. The wedding dress has tulle in it to keep the skirt puffy. These things are stiff and likes to retain its shape. So while my husband was down there and making his way up I heard a loud "ouch." I thought he was just trying to be funny so I didn't pay attention to it. Then he said "my eye." So I quickly sat up to find out what the heck was going on down there. Well, it turned out that the tulle had poked my husband's eye while he was down there. He said he was raising my skirt and suddenly the tulle or crinoline flipped up and hit him on one eye. These things are sharp. That killed the mood really quick. I told him go and wash his eye and lay down for awhile until the irritation disappeared. After an hour, we're back at it and this time he was very careful. In another instance, it was my turn to get sort of harmed. I was on top and being in-charge and enjoying every second of it until I got so hot and literally overheated and felt dizzy. I guess, I had the corset top laced too tight and this did not allow me to breath freely. I told him "I'm getting too hot." He misunderstood it and he said it's ok and go for it. But when I asked him to take my dress off cause I'm getting dizzy, he quickly laid me on the bed and loosened the lace on my back. After 30 minutes of rest, we're at it again and this time I finished up my work. What a night!!!! I've never experienced anything like it. It was truly unique and worth remembering. A little funny, a lot of romance and exploration and very fulfilling in the end. Since that day, we have acquired a few more wedding dresses. We have a couple of Maggie Sottero's, a PC Mary, and 2 David's Bridals. But we've only done it on one dress which is the David's Bridal, my very first wedding dress. No beading or crystals on this dress. One Maggie has a metal brooch on the side, the other one has some crystals hanging on the side; one David's Bridal has beading on the bodice with pick up skirt style; the other one has a pick up skirt but no beading on the bodice just a brooch. The PC Mary has a more traditional style. Heavy beading on the bodice and along train. So there it is. This was my "trashing the Dress."
