FINDING that perfect wedding dress is hard. Deciding how you are going to destroy it is even harder.

Maleny Dairies is looking for the belles of the ball to get wild and rugged in the pond, grass, mud and on a giant waterslide as it attempts to set a world record later this year.

Women over 18 - single, married or otherwise - can to frock up for a Trash the Wedding Dress family fun day.

They are hoping hundreds will turn up as they attempt to set a new Wild World Record for the most girls in wedding dresses in one location in one day.

The October 21 event will also celebrate Maleny Dairies' 10th anniversary and help raise funds for charity Sunnykids, which supports and rehomes mothers and children who come from abusive homes.

Maleny Diaries general manager Kay Hollyoak said the day would be about empowering women. "We are giving women a chance to celebrate and let their hair down," she said. "It's a celebration of self for every female and designed to be fun."

Mrs Hollyoak said the mock brides could be as wild or mild as they liked on the day.

"They don't have to wreck the wedding dress if they don't want to. It can just be about getting some beautiful photos with their friends and family at the farm or getting dirty in the mud."

The fun day will also have a 70m water slide.

"I'm hoping to see a few brides to get muddy and then clean themselves off on the water slide," Mrs Hollyoak said.
