Pockets In My Dress....Y or N??

Wed Jul 28, 2010 9:09 pm

I am getting my dress made which is great as it gives me the freedom to change little things along the way. Today while I was waiting for my wheat bag to heat up in the microwave, I was thinking about my wedding dress while standing there with my hands in the pockets of my skirt that I was wearing and suddenly thought.....wouldn't it be great to have pockets in my wedding dress!!

I could keep a few tissues in the pockets which would come in handy, and with the style of my dress, I dont think you would know the pockets were there unless I had my hands in them. I also think pockets would give the dress a bit of character!

So thought I'd come on here and ask everyone's opinion!! Good or bad idea??!!

To give you a bit more of an idea of what I'm talking about, this is sort of a rough idea of what my dress will look like:

And here are some examples I found on the net of wedding dresses with pockets:

I'm not a fan of the pockets look, but that's just my personal opinion.

I say no TBH, it takes the formality out of the dress. Just my two cents worth :D

I think its a great idea - and with the style of dress, you wouldn't even know they were there!!! It will cost extra though and I would perhaps consider the extra cost versus how much you think having pockets would help you out (ie having tissues handy etc). Might not be worth it???

Well, I wouldn't if you asked me. Unless, it's really not visible AND nobody sees your hands in them because honestly, it spoils the look of the wedding dress :|

Yes, Yes do it!!!

Its so handy, you can keep everything you need right there and not have to rely on BMs to carry around a bag for you. And ive seen these dresses - unless you have your pockets in them ppl wont know.

I'm in two minds about this. I think it's cute and different, but at the same time it may look quite informal if you find yourself standing around with your hand in your pockets. I often end up with my hands in my pockets without really thinking so I'd be afraid I'd do it without thinking in my wedding dress perhaps!

I to also love pockets, but not on a wedding dress..... Perhaps do something like im doing... i bought a little white dilly bag from e-bay(2nd hand but used once you can't even tell), I'll be having lip gloss, and tissues in my bag. and carrying that with me.

No, I personally don't like the idea of a wedding dress with pockets - especially if you'll end up putting your hands in them.

I think pockets are fine IF and only IF you don't stick your hands in your pockets and no one actually knows there are pockets on your dress. If you want to store emergency items like tissues, then sneak a wipe here and there!

I agree with this. I think the look of using the pockets to stick your hands in might look cool for some of the photos, but wouldn't use them for this at any other point.

My wedding dress has pockets - it's one of the things that attracted me to the dress. I'll only be using them to store some tissues and lipgloss. There will be no photos of me with my hands in my pockets that's for sure! Plus, the pockets aren't visible so no-one will even know they are there.

That's so cool!! I'm secretly hoping I'll find a similar surprise in mine, but I probably won't because it's a Maggie S. :lol:
