Halloween is almost here and I’m sure you’ve been wondering, “How can I use a wedding dress as my Halloween costume?” …what only me? Maybe it’s just because of the abundance of bridal gowns I’m surrounded by every day, haha.
Semi-seriously though, the “trash the dress” photo sessions appear to be very trendy right now. Why not use your wedding dress (which you already know you look amazing in) one last time as a Halloween costume? Many photographers may even include a “trash the dress” session as part of their wedding photo packages. If your wedding is being held in the fall, making your session Halloween themed is a great nod towards the season.
In any case, I’ve come up with a list of the best wedding dresses to appear in a scary or Halloween themed movie. For those of you who still have not chosen a costume, perhaps this will serve as inspiration. Or maybe it will simply inspire you to rent one of these spooky flicks for your weekend. In any case, enjoy and Happy Halloween!
