Trashing

IN A NEW TREND, BRIDES ARE PHOTOGRAPHED GETTING DOWN AND DIRTY IN THEIR WEDDING GOWNS

The bystanders thought she'd lost her mind. But when Chris Kibler ran through the water fountains at Old Town Square -- her wedding gown on and her hair styled -- she knew exactly what she was doing. It's called "trash the dress," and it's a new trend in wedding photography that's catching on across the nation.

A "trash-the-dress" session usually takes place a few weeks after the wedding. The bride puts her wedding gown back on and poses for magazine-style photos in locales that would make her mom nervous -- at an amusement park, in a grungy alley, wading in the water, rolling in sand.

In some of the more extreme sessions, documented on the Web site trashthedress.wordpress.com, brides are photographed underwater in their wedding attire, smearing themselves with paint or attacking their dresses with a pair of scissors.

------Our youngest daughter is marrying next July and we've been happily looking at wedding dresses for months - there will definitely be no trashing. I suppose this new "tradition" should come as no surprise as sheople seem to wallow like happy hogs in every crude trend slopped in the trough; particularly when it involves trashing anything - as ruin seems to be truly an American art.
