Maria Pantazopoulos, 30, married on June 9, died on Aug. 24 when her wedding dress became soaked during a photo shoot in the Oureau River in Rawdon, Quebec. The heavy, awkward garment eventually dragged its diminutive owner into the water and caused her to drown.
Dear readers, never try to do “trash the dress” photo shoots.
Beaches and bodies of water are popular locations for “trash the dress” photo shoots, a trend which began gaining popularity in 2008. Several mass “trash the dress” events took place in 2011, including one that featured hundreds of women storming a Netherlands beach in their gowns.
I wrote about ‘life-risking’ activities in my Wednesday, August 22, 2012 posting and I say again,
“Our lives are gifts from God and should be used to glorify God.”
And always remember what the Lord Jesus says in Mark 8:36;
“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?”
I do believe you will do it - Anytime, Anywhere, Anyhow.
