Thoughts on TTD? (trashing the dress)

Our local paper did a story on this not too long ago. It was a good story, but the repsonses irked me. I just don't understand the controversy.

I'll copy the resonses:

Trashing tradition

Nothing like recycling a story idea from the KC Star.

She got the idea from me. I invited her to one of our sessions. Also offered her some of our pics. We do great work!

ABSOLUTELY, INCREDIBLY INCONSIDERATE!!!My wife spent months planning and weeks making just the right dress that our daughter wanted.Just another modern day, self indulgent, "it's all about me, and I don't care what the cost" attitude. Especially if someone else pays the price, financially and emotionally.Not even remotely respectful or respectable!

What a great idea!!! and what awesome pictures. Resale on a wedding dress is next to nothing and like the article said who is going to wear this 30 years down the road, especially if you have only boys.......unless one of your boys becomes a drag queen then it might

Every generation finds some way to embarrass its traditions. It just gets worse and time goes on. A few may regret the memories brought about by saving the dress for daughters and grand daughters, but fewer and fewer seem to care.

What great photos. Trashing your dress isn't for everyone, but most brides today pay for their own dress so let them do what they want. For goodness sake it's a dress their trashing not the marriage!

It just amazes me that so many people feel they can tell others how to live their lives...........
The one about the dad paying for the dress........Umm.....ok, so you want to spend money on something that will sit in a damn box forever, as opposed to something that can get some really great shots for some really great memories?
So glad that we paid for everything ourselves. I would hate for our family to try to dictate how we do our wedding. Of course, our families wouldn't do that anyway, but still.

As you know, I think TTD is an awesome idea. Now I just have to talk DH into it!

well i mean for those who have families against, this coming from a n amateur photojournalist, Dresses don't have to be totally trashed...dry cleaners anyone. Check my blog out where i actually did post some TTD sessions where the dress was still intact after. I think of it as Extreme or Abstract bridal portraits Marc Eric even commented : )
