Trash the Dress!

13 November, 2007

I love the concept of “Trashing the Dress” but I’m still not sold on trashing mine. Ms. Polka at Polka Dot Bride reports there’s now an Australian site for TTD! My dress is going to be a labour of love, and I’m actually thinking of getting it professionally mounted as a wall display later on, butget I wonder just how trashy I have to get my dress..! Ms. Polka assures me that the dresses never get so trashed that a good dry cleaning wouldn’t restore them to their former glory, so now my mind is ticking through TTD concepts at a hundred miles an hour.

If you’re only a short time reader, I should remind you that my dress is going to be red, and my fiance is going to be wearing a cream/ bone pin striped suit. It would be so awesome if we could work with liquids like red wine and milk or cream (or at least a liquid that can be dyed so as not to be totally damaging to the fabrics in our outfits!). Another idea I’ve had is to set our shoot in a food fight in the middle of a glorious banquet!

I may just have to speak with our photographer, Kate O’Brien, about these ideas. You should check out the amazing photographs she takes too. I have a feeling a TTD shoot would excite her!
