Trash the Dress, originally uploaded by ABMann.

I cannot tell you how fun it is to trash a wedding dress.
The arboretum tunnels, trees, leaves, sand, mud, lakes. So much fun.

Many more photos forthcoming.

Trash The Dress, originally uploaded by abmann_shoots.

(Up until Victorian times brides decked themselves out in their best finery; they did not rush out to buy something new for the occasion. The ostentatiously impractical white dress became popular among the Victorian upper classes chiefly for its defects: one had to be well off to afford such an opulent creation, one which would be worn only once.

White is about as impractical a color as one can come up with, and those Victorians looking for a way to make an unseemly show of wealth socially acceptable knew that. A white dress was its own advertisement that it wasn't going to be worn again.
