Trash the Wedding Dress

Two days after tying the knot, Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard and his Eagles cheerleader bride Krystle Campbell took a break from enjoying their honeymoon to take part in the bizarre ritual of
trashing their wedding dress for a photo shoot in Maui on Monday.

For those who don't know, it's become somewhat of a trend for a newlywed couple to destroy the bride's expensive wedding gown -- often at a beach or lake -- and capture it on film.

At least she can say she wore it more than once.

This seems such a waste.
1.) She could donate it and give another bride a beautiful gown she could not afford or
2.) She could save it for her own daughter to wear someday.

An amazing photographer I know (Kyle Hepp - look her up!) does this with her clients and until I saw the pics, I thought it was so crazy to "ruin" the dress. It makes for some fun photos!

Wasteful, wasteful. Someone spends a fortune on their wedding, buys the most beautiful dress they can find and then proceeds to destroy it. Sell it to someone else, give it to charity, whatever. When I see stuff like this this it makes me wonder how long a marriage will last for someone this trifling.

Americans are just spoil rotten. I bet that dress cost over $3000, there are people who cannot afford a single meal a day. Donate the damn dress.

I don't see the point to that but everyone who gets married near water is doing it these days. Does anyone know what that symbolizes?

It's very obvious that these two could care less about anyone in need or giving the dress to a woman that could really use it. I say if they don't care about others why should we care about them!?! It just goes to show you ignorant they both are! Even if they read all of these comments it still wouldn't bother them.

What a way to be wasteful. I can't imagine how many women would love to have even the hint of a gown at their wedding day that they could have donated this to.
