Since the dawn of time, brides have carefully washed and packed their wedding dresses, gently setting them in a cedar closet or stuffing them in the attic, secretly hoping that one day their daughters would want to wear the dress at their own weddings. Over the past century, disheartened mothers have learned their daughters often don’t wear their mothers’ wedding gowns for two reasons: 1) moms and daughters aren’t always built the same and 2) styles change. Recently, brides began looking for an alternate way to memorialize their wedding gowns. And trash the dress (TTD) was born. When Shades of Grey trashes your dress, you’ll go to multiple locations, get wet and/or dirty, and change how you look at wedding gowns forever. In other words, you’ll have a blast, and your dress will be all the worse for your wear. Not surprisingly, TTD isn’t just for newlyweds. Many happily married women have pulled their aging wedding gowns out of hiding for a TTD session, and they were thrilled with the results. (For less timid brides, there is no need to worry. Despite the name, all TTD sessions do not result in great damage or any to the gown if you choose.) The bride is given all images from the session on a DVD and full rights to the images.
