Wikipedia says that Trash the Dress is:

…also known as fearless bridal or rock the frock, is a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is out of place. It is generally shot in the style of fashion and glamour photography. “Trash the dress” is the art of destruction or deconstruction of a brides wedding dress to create a new “artwork” that the bride would be proud to display on their wall. This new “masterpiece” is formed in the creative destruction of the dress. This will normally be portrayed in a sequence of images or simply a single image…

It may be done as an additional shoot after the wedding, almost as a declaration that the wedding is done and the dress will not be used again. It is seen as an alternative to storing the dress away.

It’s also being used for prom dresses now. Check this out background bigtacular and in Steven’s Portraits slideshow and at

There’s a Trash the Dress group on Flickr and also check out the Trash the Dress Michigan slideshow on Flickr.
