The biggest wedding trend of the year is turning deadly.

One bride has already died from trying.

Weddings…a time to celebrate the start of a new life together as a couple.

However, the biggest wedding trend to hit the aisle comes with a very serious warning.

I’m sure you’ve heard of it…trashing the dress. Basically, after you’ve said “I do” and had all the beautiful photos taken, you take that dress, you will only wear once but spent a lot of money on, and…well…trash it.

The problem that no one really speaks about is that it can get quite dangerous.

Amy Zuno decided to trash her dress after her vows to husband Eric. In the YouTube video, she is on the edge of the boat as her bridesmaid suggests, “Want me to jump in after you? So you don’t sink?”.

As Zuno laughs off the idea, she leaps into the deep water where her husband is waiting.

That's when she sinks, with her dress becoming water logged.

Take a look at the video of Zuno jumping in...(post continues after the video)...

Zuno tells INSIDE EDITION, "I felt the weight of the dress on me. I heard screaming and people jumping into the water so then I was like, okay, maybe I just got married and I'm going to die today."

Zuno's husband recalls trying to save his new bride's life, "I couldn't get the dress over the top of her head so I started to panic."

Even though it was very traumatic, Zuno says, "I don't regret it". Right after the near-death experience, she stripped the dress off, chucked on her bikini and continued the party as planned.

While Zuno's experience has a happy ending, this isn't the first time that trashing the dress has been more about life and death.

In 2012, a Canadian bride jumped in a river as part of the wedding photographer. Her dress, too, became water logged and despite guests and the photographer trying to save her, lost her life as she was dragged downstream.

Did you keep, trash or sell your dress?
