In general, a wedding dress is used only once and then stored in a closet to leave it there for years … creative movement “Trash the Dress” offers a session of video art and photography, by wearing the dress to get it wet and muddy...

The photographer Mark Eric first suggested trash the Dress term in the U.S. in 2000, while others say that its origins date back to Las Vegas in 2001 linked to photographer John Michael Cooper.

Tendency to destroy the wedding dress could be seen in Hollywood since at least October 1998 when Meg Cummings of the Sunset Beach show went into the ocean with her wedding dress on the day of her wedding. This artistic movement, mostly photographic, contrasts elegant clothing with stages totally unusual or non-standard such as an abandoned factory, a beach, a salt, a Cenote, a lake or the street.

The best of these sessions is that the couple openly interact with the environment regardless of whether the dress of the bride or the groom’s suit gets dirty or wet, in addition to the ideas and options to make this type of session are limitless and depends entirely on how far you want to reach the couple. Since then, it’s been 10 years and many photographers were
inspired by the adventurous spirit and aesthetic of the TTD, a style that has spread worldwide, especially in the United States and Europe.
