A new trend in wedding dress photography is sweeping the country, encouraging brides to destroy their dresses. 

Adam Cavanagh, of Cavanagh Photography,  was one of the first photographers to offer the trash the dress trend in Australia, and says that while trashing a wedding dress might almost seem sacreligious, brides are getting down and dirty in their dresses in the name of art.

Playing in the mud, frolicking in the surf, paintball fields, cutting, ripping and setting their dress on fire are just some of the ways brides are showing this commitment.

I want to keep my wedding dress forever.

Or at least let my daughter wear it.

maye. there's nothing else to do with it.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/21/08 - 11:04:52 PM EST (GMT-5)

Ditto. But I can't see myself wearing a traditional wedding dress that I could trash afterward. If I ever get married, I'd prefer to do it in jeans, with Elvis officiating.

Hell no. I'm not destroying something I paid so much money for.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/21/08 - 11:15:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd want to keep it. I am not going to spend thousands on it, just a couple hundred but it would be sentimental. I would even hesitate throwing the garter because I'd want to keep it. The thought of destroying the dress is very sad.

Its nice to keep a souvenir from a good memorable day...(if it was) also its a total waste of money. WHy dont you just sell it to a shop that rents dresses to others!! I think if you dont need it might as well get somethign out of it... not TRASH it! thats a total waste.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/22/08 - 1:42:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
Absolutly not! That dress will have entirely too much sentimental value since it was passed down from my grandmothr to my mother and now I plan on wearing it and giving it to my future daughter/ daughter in law.

What would that say about how they feel about their marriage?

the point of it is that they're so commited to their husbands that they aren't going to need the dress again (for remarriage).
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/22/08 - 5:19:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
uhh no

Exactly!

Mine didn't even cost very much (as wedding dresses go), but there's still no way in hell.

Aside from sentimental value, I had the dress made specifically for me, and it's a one-of-a-kind. I'd HATE for the seamstress to know I'd gone and ripped it to shreds after she spent so much time on it.

My thoughts exactly.

I will definatley destroy the wedding dress I wear...
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/23/08 - 4:42:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't plan on getting married but if I did I don't think I wpuld want to destroy my wedding dress.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/23/08 - 8:05:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's suposse to be a souvenire and it shouldnt be burned to ashes afterall it does cost alotm of money right?
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/23/08 - 10:19:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
That sounds okay. Otherwise it just sits on a hanger and takes up space forever.You still have pictures and memories. I was recently a bridesmaid in a wedding and I threw the dress in the trash the next day.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/25/08 - 10:01:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
that wouldnt be so smart considering the divorce rate. She might need that expensive thing again once or twice more!
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/08 - 1:15:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
no id want to keep it as a memoryy and maybe someone else would want to use it. if anything i would sell it before i ever trashed it. what a waste of moneyy.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/08 - 2:19:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, I wouldn't plan to go out and purposefully trash it. But, who knows...
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/08 - 3:08:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
This is one of the dumbest trends ever.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/30/08 - 11:51:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Good lord, no! That's such a waste of money and the time of whoever made it. As for the argument that it shows commitment, I would say give it away; taking delight in trashing it just has the wrong tone.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/30/08 - 1:44:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no. Those things are expensive.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/30/08 - 1:46:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would save it to give to my daughter or daughter-in-law depedning how it works out.
