How do you feel about ‘Trash the Dress’ sessions?

To trash the dress or not, it’s a question on many a bride’s mind. I had mixed feelings about ‘Trash the Dress’ (TTD) sessions… until I saw Heila’s gorgeous beach session!

Photographed by Sonje Ludwick on Deerdesteen beach, along the Cape’s West Coast, this TTD session is the perfect combination of pretty, sensual and natural.There’s no ripping of the dress or throwing paint which means that, after a good wash, Heila’s dress could probably be worn again. In fact, there was probably no more damage to her dress than occurred on her wedding day. I say that because when I looked at my dress post wedding, I thought it was trashed!

You see my Mr and I had our couple photos taken on the beach, so the seams of my dress were filled with sand and, since so people stepped on my dress that during the night, it was filthy! During the evening, it got to the point when I didn’t even want to look down because I was sure my dress had torn!

Fortunately, Lizette, the lovely and talented lady who altered my dress and made my bolero, offered to wash it and returned my dress as good as new. How blessed am I?! But now that my dress looks so good and clean, secure in it’s dust-proof bag, I only regret is not getting a day-after TTD session like this before getting my dress washed.
