“Trash the dress”, also known as “fearless bridal” or “rock the frock”, is a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant bridal clothing with a setting that is out of place.
Allegedly this trend started around 2001, courtesy of wedding photographer, John Michael Cooper. Although, with the average wedding dress costing $1,211, it’s hard to imagine why a bride would want to demolish a dress that many believe is the most important dress of a woman’s life.
These brides might just want to render the dress unwearable in the future, because, let’s face it, it’s not going to be worn ever again anyway. Another theory is that brides are hoping to “stick it” to the wedding industrial complex. Either way, we have decided to hunt down some of the more outrageous photos of brides trashing their dresses, simply for your viewing pleasure!
