    Trash the dress -

    Wedding gowns find life after nuptials in "trash the dress" photos – an increasingly popular trend in bridal photography. Brides wear the dresses for photo shoots in locations that are anything but glamorous -- from junkyards and railroad tracks to swamps and even underwater. The gowns go out in a mess of glory, as most are destroyed during the process. These photos have been collected on Trashthedress.com. Take a look at some of the wild ways wedding dresses have made their final appearances.
