Trash the Wedding Dress- WTF?

Jul 24, 2008

I'm not a big fan of marriage as an institution. I'm even less of a fan of the concept of a big wedding, but I'll wait around for hours for an open bar just like the next person.

Those disclaimers aside, I do not understand the growing trend of brides to trash their wedding dress. According to this Reuters article the trend is moving to Australia as a new fad too.

I just don't get it. If you dislike the idea of a wedding so much, why have a big wedding and buy a super expensive dress anyway?

Why go to all that trouble if you are almost literally going to spoil the whole thing?

It seems like a huge waste of time, money and effort reminiscent of precursors to the French Revolution (especially if you read the winners side of history).

Instead of dropping a few hundred to several thousand dollars on a dress, why not donate that money to charity, or put it towards your savings for a house or potential college funds for your kids, throw it into a moving pods storage system or hell just go spend it on a longer honeymoon.

I really can't get into the perspective of brides that would want to do this, but I sense a direct correlation to this silly fad and appearing in a Girls Gone Wild video. It would seem that demeaning your self has grown out of a fad and almost into a right of passage for women.

That's why I ask WTF?

here's a quote from trashthedress.com

"You've made a commitment to your husband. He's your one and only true love, right? Then you'll never need the dress again. And no, your daughter won't wear it in 20-30 years. So you have two choices: 1) Suffocate it in plastic and throw it in a closet, 2) Show your husband how committed you are by trashing the dress, and get some great fun pictures while you do it!"

I'm sorry but that just seems tarded to me.

Hello! You are getting married. If that isn't showing enough committment, then you and possibly your new husband have serious issues and I predict a speedy divorce.

Solution

Don't waste the money on the dress if you are going to destroy it. If you want to show committment (stupid idea if I ever heard one) then go spend $100 on some bondage equipment and have your father walk you down the aisle on a leash and hand you over to your husband with a dowry in hand.

Now that is showing committment!

Not that I recommend that either, but is just as freaking ridiculous as wasting thousands of dollars.
