Edgy Daily Errands Bridal Shoot

bridal daily errands28

Your wedding dress is probably going to be the most beautiful dress you’ve ever owned. So don’t you think it’s such a shame that you only get to wear it for one day in your life!? Wedding photographers The Melideos were thinking about this idea and decided to do a shoot to show that it doesn’t have to be like that!

“The idea for the shoot came from personal experience”, wrote photographer Mer. “I bought a beautiful dress for my wedding but I’ve only worn it the one time! So I dreamed up this bride that is so fearless and fun that she wears her gown for her daily errands. She goes grocery shopping, does her laundry, picks up dry-cleaning, all in her fabulous dress.”

“We recently rebranded our business and we wanted to do a photo shoot to kick off our new site and announce our official move back to New York City”, she continued. “We want to bring a more editorial, edgy vibe to the wedding world, which can feel a little too sweet and saccharine sometimes! We were hoping to do something a little bit different than your typical bride and groom wrapped in the veil looking into each other’s eyes standing in the middle of a meadow. Something real, gritty, and a little badass. We’re also trying to show brides that when it comes to weddings, you can bring out your inner badass too!”

    I just actually checked and I can’t find and prices have scared me a little. I believe I m the same size, if she wants to sell it, marieceku@gmail.com is my email 🙂
    Very pretty indeed

  3. What a fab idea!!! I have a few previous brides who I feel may be up for something like this, just to wear their dress again! Looks like a lot of fun 😀 Great pics x

  4. It´s really amazing photo shot. I´d personally do it but the question is that people are too traditional.However, we´ve filmed some different tipis of wedding here in Spain. Anyway, answering your question I´d like to do it one day.

  5. No, not sure on this one. I know New York has a vibe, it’s cool and edgy but why have a bride doing daily chores! Surely married life is not all one sided? There could have been better things these brides could have been doing. I.e teaching, rock climbing, doing a boot camp in Central Park, in a board room meeting.
    However I’m not a model nor a photographer and those idea are a bit far fetched but as a newly wed professional myself, when looking for my two beautiful wedding dresses food shopping and doing my laundry was not in the equation. Conclusion ..if your trying to promote and sell your designs and dresses…. Fun most certainly YES but doing daily chores No!

    Check out the great photos on the Trashed in the Dress website. They have been hosting creative bridal gown events all over NYC, for just about a year.

  7. I love this idea, so original and much better than a “trash the dress” shoot. Definitely an idea to remember for the future!
