Trash the Dress Wedding Photo Idea Almost Gone Very Wrong

Weddings call for many traditions, some expected and some very unusual. Take into account the different cultural backgrounds and the wedding ceremony gets even longer. The Trash the Dress tradition is one that takes place not on the day of the wedding itself, but on a separate occasion. It is a style of wedding photography that involves contrasting the elegant wedding gowns with a harsher background.

Such photoshoots take place on rooftops, city streets, garages, fields, beaches and abandoned buildings. The term, “Trash the Dress” comes from the assumption that the bride may very well ruin the dress by getting it dirty, wet, ripped, or in this case, burnt:

No, the photo is not Photoshopped. The flames are real and are licking its way up the dress. Just before the fire reaches the bride, she runs toward the ocean to put out the flames and the photo assistant is left to douse whatever propellant is left on the beach with a fire extinguisher. All this in a matter of seconds. Captured by White Studio Photography (Via Petapixel).

Trash the Dress gone too far? Perhaps, but there’s no denying that it resulted in a cool photo.
