Apparently she was taking part in something called "Trash the Dress" and she was posing in her wedding dress while standing in a river. It seems she was only a few inches or a foot deep in water; her dress became water logged and she slipped and fell into the river and was cried away. The BBC says she was trying to swim in the dress and was weighted down by it. Either way it is a terrible way to die and totally preventable.

hopefully this will put a damper (no pun intended) on a stupid trend

Yeah, saw that story earlier. Didn't realize it was a "trash the dress" activity, but that makes more sense than an extra random photo shoot. In any case, how heartbreaking for her family.

I'm cofused. If you went to the trouble of having a traditional wedding, why would you trash the dress? That seems like a post divorce activity.
The next thing I don't understand is why is getting it wet is trashing it - it can still be cleaned. The last thing I don't understand is who in their right mind gets in running water in a bulky dress and expects to live?

I hope that the trash the dress trend will end soon.

My niece's trash the dress thought was she was married now and no longer needed the dress. And that any daughter she might have would want her own dress. Her photo shoot was on the beach (she lived in Florida at the time). I still don't understand the trashing of a $$$$ dress.

I especially don't understand spending even more $$$ to commemorate it.

It just seems like something to prolong Bride's Special Day months after the event - "hey look! I'm still the most important person! Because MY WEDDING and MY DRESS and MY PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY is what it's all about. And it'll take at least a few months before I can start bombarding you with pictures of MY PREGNANCY and MY BABY which prove that I am COMPLETELY CREATIVE AND UNIQUE even though I ripped this off my BFF's pinterest! ME! ME! ME!...oh what's that honey? yeah whatever, could you stand over there? you're blocking my light kthxbai...ME! ME! ME! :D :D :D"

I've always been a bit :yikes: about the trash-the-dress photoshoots. Some budget-minded brides would like to have your used dress! Don't trash it! I'm glad the previous owner of my dress didn't. I snagged my whole dress ensemble for less than $65. :cool:

Still, she didn't deserve to die over a stupid photoshoot. Seriously, the photographer didn't think it was dangerous? :scream: "Take photographs of me swimming in it?" Darwin Award, I'm afraid...

An Ophelia death. "But long it could not be till that her garments, heavy with their drink, pulled the poor wretch from her melodious lay to muddy death." Sad and pointless.

I hadn't heard of trashing a dress before but let me get this straight. These people buy dresses that cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars and just because they figure they won't wear them again they ruin them?
I guess that makes it official - people still have too much money, even in economic crisis and they have no idea what money's worth anymore. Geez.
My mom still has her dress. It didn't cost a fortune and I certainly won't wear it. But I think there's something about it that makes her not be able to throw it out.

Regardless, this is tragic and shouldn't happen to anyone. So horrible for her new husband and family!

Yep. They totally destroy the dress taking the pictures. Cut them up, rip and tear them, roll around in the mud and ocean, spray paint them ... its crazy some of the pictures I've seen online. Just google it and you will find some photo shoots. My thought is ... hey spoiled princess, why don't you sell your dress to someone who would like a nice dress but could never afford to pay $6,000+ for a dress, or donate it to a charity, or put it in a consignment shop, or sell it to a dress outlet shop, or something other than completely destroy a dress you wore for about 6 hours. Total waste.

Amen to that! I watch that Say Yes to the Dress show and it amazes me the little spoiled brats who march in there and announce their dress budget is $5,000+. Insane. I know someone who paid for her whole damn wedding with $5,000 and it was very lovely. And her dress was more gorgeous than the $5,000+ monstrosities I see on Say Yes to the Dress.

I had never heard of "trash the dress" before Virtue & Moir did it (http://relish.myraklarman.com/tessa-virtue-scott-moir-h2o).

ITA!! This made me think about something i read yesterday : the morning after photoshoot (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2192538/No-white-dress-forced-smiles-DEFINITELY-laws-The-rise-morning-wedding-album.html) :scream:

What a tragedy :( but at the same time what a stupid, stupid thing to do! Trash the dress? :rolleyes: Genevieve summed it up perfectly. I really hope this so-called 'trend' goes away very quickly.

And those morning after shots? Seriously is nothing private anymore? How contrived is that? Who looks that good the morning after anything?? Narcissism at its absolute worst.

there was a local girl on tv on fri with her morning after photoshoot photos, including one of the two of them on her dining room table with her legs back by her ears. lol, i dont know what they cost but i was thinking about how unflattering they were and then the bride said something about how flattering she thought they were and she put them up in several places in the house.
