My wife and i have a different take, don’t trash the dress, use it up. I’ve photographed! her in her wedding dress over 125 times since our wedding. Check out some of our crazy photos at http://www.onedressonewoman.com.

Great shots —- interesting and fun! Makes me want to don a wedding dress and try a couple of the concepts myself. (LOL) I agree — veering from traditional wedding poses makes for more interesting imagery in the wedding album. Am sure adding a touch of any of these poses (or at least something akin to it) would elicit more smiles and laughter when you revisiting your wedding album. Besides its your day and why not add an expression of yourselves in it. Of course, you’ll need an obliging groom (or bride) and a good photographer too. Crossing the bridge on boots or running through a finish line are ones I’d like to try. Please check out this site too: http://flairtree.weebly.com/ for other interesting wedding concepts. :-)

Awesome photos! LOVE shot #6 amazing photography!! Thanks for sharing!



Wow so beautiful and eye caching photos collection. Extra ordinary photos collection. I really enjoying your post very much. Thanks a lot for sharing.



The ideas are so fun. I´d b sure to take note of them and hopefully pull up the courage to do any of the things that you suggested a bride should do with her groom. I am quite certain that it would be a wedding photoshoot that couples can have fun looking back to during a rough patch or a serious row.



Really great ideas for trash the dress photo session. Like wild life, under the water, dance on the beach and roll over the sandy beach as they can all go well for a Bahamas wedding shot.

This is really ridiculous. But for me I prefer to preserve my wedding dress or keep it to have a souvenir on your wedding day.
