I have recently fallen in love with the idea of doing a photo shoot in the dress and tux after the wedding. There are so many unique pictures that you can take that aren't limited by the venue. You can go to the place you met or a landmark of the city. I found this picture awhile back of a couple in front of a Milk Bottle. It's definitely a landmark and maybe even significant to this couple. I do still dislike the idea of trashing the dress completely but why not go around town in it at least? And I bet you'll get plenty of people offering to buy you drinks, maybe even a famous milkshake from the Milk Bottle.
