Ease the Stress and Trash the Dress – Alyssa & Drew

Wedding days are often filled with joy, love, and happiness, but they can also be overwhelming and stressful. The pressure to make everything perfect and please everyone can take a toll on a bride’s mental and emotional well-being. That’s where trashing the dress sessions come in.

We were incredibly excited to share a special trash the dress session with Alyssa and Drew who had a wedding at Secrets Royal Punta Cana.

Trashing the dress sessions are a growing trend in which brides have their wedding dresses destroyed in a fun and creative way. It may sound counterintuitive, but destroying the dress can be a therapeutic experience that helps release any negative emotions associated with the wedding day and serves as a symbolic gesture of letting go of the past and starting a new chapter in life.

In this case, Alyssa and Drew both have pretty demanding jobs as physical therapists, so being able to spend some time having fun with each other brought much ease after months of working hard in their fields while planning a wedding.

Trashing the dress sessions can take many forms, from jumping into a pool or the ocean to painting the dress. The possibilities are endless, and the only limit is your imagination. This unique experience creates lasting memories and provides a chance to let loose and have fun with your partner or friends.

But trashing the dress sessions are not just about destroying the dress. They can also be a way to honor your wedding day and celebrate your love for each other. Many couples choose to have these sessions as a way to capture the beauty and romance of the wedding day in a more unconventional way. It’s a chance to take stunning and unique photographs that you will cherish for a lifetime.

If you’re considering a trashing the dress session, here are three tips to make the most of your experience.

1. Choose a safe location: When selecting a location for your trashing the dress session, it’s important to choose a safe and appropriate environment. Avoid rough or dangerous waters and stay away from areas with heavy traffic or other hazards. Make sure you have permission to use the location and be respectful of the environment.

  1. Protect your dress: While the point of trashing the dress is to destroy it, you may still want to preserve certain parts of it for sentimental reasons or as a keepsake. Consider wearing protective gear like gloves, goggles, and a mask to avoid damage to yourself and the dress. You may also want to bring a change of clothes to wear after the session.
  1. Work with a professional: To ensure that your trashing the dress session is captured in a beautiful and respectful way, consider working with a professional photographer or videographer who has experience with this type of shoot. (That’s us) They can help you choose the best location, provide guidance on safety and logistics, and capture stunning images or footage that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Trashing the dress sessions are a unique and creative way to honor your wedding day, release stress, and have fun with your partner or friends. It’s a chance to let go of any negative emotions and start a new chapter in life. So, go ahead and trash that dress!
