Wedding Dresses With Pockets Are Taking the Internet by Storm... and We Love Them!

by Sophie@hitched

For years and years brides-to-be have all faced the same dilemma: how am I going to carry the essentials on my big day?

You know, lipstick, hotel room key and some tissues for when it all gets too emotional. 

A clutch or handbag is a luxury that isn’t usually donned by brides on the big day, and stashing away of the essentials is usually left to your very helpful M.O.H.

But fear not! Wedding dresses with pockets are now a thing and we can’t think of any better way to carry everything we’re going to need. It’s a long day, after all.

The trend was first bought to our attention when Twitter user, Esther Kezia Thorpe posted a picture of her friend with her hands in her wedding dress pockets. Ground breaking.

Hundreds of people responded to the snap, agreeing with Esther’s opinion that the design was the “best thing” she’d ever seen.   

They're both a stylish and practical addition to the dress, and despite it once being considered poor manners to stand with your hands in pockets of an expensive dress, everything has now become much more relaxed.

Twitter has seen a hashtag circulating. One user jumped on the bandwagon by posting a photo of herself and her bridesmaids who all had, yep, you guessed it: dresses with pockets.

#Weddingdresseswithpockets has even become a bit of feminist talking point, with user, Kate Matthews, declaring that #WOMENNEEDPOCKETSTOO “on all our clothes!”.

It would seem that designers have listened to the demand and acted very quickly. We’re now seeing the trend pop up in bridal boutiques quicker than you can say “something blue”.

When speaking to The Times, Christina Sancha, sales manager at bridal boutique, Sassi Holford, said: “Customers get very excited when they try on a dress with pockets."

"It tends to make them feel more comfortable.”

What do you think to the new trend?
