Every bride in planning mode might agree… it’s all about the dress. They say that once you have the dress, everything else comes together more easily. The dress is the centerpiece of the day. It dictates the style of the wedding (vintage, couture, modern, classic, etc…pearls, sparkles, diamonds, feathers, or lace). Brides spend hours finding the one dress that fits perfectly because the object of that day (aside from, of course, marrying the love of your life) is to represent the best version of who are while you make this public declaration of a lifelong bond. Every bride wants to be the picture of perfection on her wedding day. That dress represents so much to us…why do we only get to wear it once? I have heard brides talk about how sad they are to pack up the most expensive, prettiest piece of clothing they’ve ever owned and only have the memory of the wedding day images to remind them of how they looked like a princess that day. But why not wear it again?
We (Kishel Photography), seeing this need for another bonus occasion to wear the dress, have always encouraged a fun photoshoot we lovingly call the “trash the dress” session (…although, don’t worry! Rarely has anyone ever really truly trashed their dress.) We love this opportunity for a bride to wear her dress again in an unusual, casual, or adventurous setting. We’ve had brides do a downtown sassy photoshoot, an outdoor photoshoot in the woods, a photoshoot in the water (no the not even that dress was ruined) and we’ve even had a bride ice skate in her dress.
Always looking for ways to wear the dress again, this article caught our eye…the latest trend for brides? Wearing their wedding dress every year on their anniversary! We love the idea! The bride featured in this article wears her dress no matter what they decide to do as a couple to celebrate: golfing, dinner, dancing, going out on the town. It’s a chance to have some fun and be a princess for one day every year! Such a great idea!
