Destruction Of Wedding Dresses Sparks Outrage, Disbelief

It takes a whole lot of thought, a whole lot of fabric and a whole lot of work to create a wedding dress. Perhaps that helps to explain why so many people are so torn up about what recently took place outside a bridal shop that was going out of business.
Last Friday, onlookers were horrified to see bridal and formal gowns that cost thousands of dollars being spray-painted and thrown into a Dumpster outside the Priscilla of Boston boutique in Edina, Minn. The dresses being painted included a $6,000 Vera Wang creation and a number of other high-dollar gowns.
