13 Times Brides Couldnt Hold Back Their Happiness Because They Wore Dresses With Pockets

Some time ago, Twitter user Esther Kezia Thorpe posted a picture on Twitter of her friend’s wedding. A perfectly normal thing to do, except that the bride’s wedding dress was anything but normal. It had pockets.

This revelation – meaning that the bride could now carry her lippy, phone or anything else she needed right up the aisle with her – quite blew Esther’s mind and started a viral thread that has just gone on and on.

Because sure, pockets are very useful things and it makes you wonder why it has taken this long to come up with such a simple innovation. Brides have traditionally carried a small bag for their essentials on the big day, but why not make use of all the space in that billowing skirt?

As the #weddingdresswithpockets hashtag started to go viral, many women decided to share their own pocket stories, as well as pics giving beautiful examples of the trend in action.

The educational thread that followed is a lesson to all wedding dress designers – the days of pocketless gowns are numbered!

Bridesmaids awkwardly shadowing the bride, bag in hand in case she needs anything, are just not practical in this day and age. “Wedding dresses are often not designed with practicality in mind,” Esther explained to Bored Panda. “But a wedding is the one day a bride is unlikely to have a handbag handy, so pockets are more essential than ever for tissues, lipstick, and of course, snacks (no one wants a hangry bride!)”

Plus the ability to casually hang out, hands in pockets on your wedding day looks incredibly cool and laid back!

Women have been demanding more pockets in their clothing for some time now, with jeans one of the few options available if it’s storage space you’re after. Even jeans’ pockets can fail sometimes, however, being simply too tight to take much more than a credit card.

“Pockets on women’s clothing has been a growing issue for a number of years, especially as we become more attached to our phones,” Esther continued. “It’s very rare to see any women’s clothes with adequate pocket space for an Oyster card, let alone a phone!”

“I’ve heard rumors that it’s a conspiracy between fashion houses and handbag designers – if we aren’t given pockets, we have to use handbags!”

“Having recently found a few niche retailers who do work dresses with pockets, I’m now a firm convert to proper pockets. They’re a life-saver, especially during hayfever season when it’s essential to have a pack of tissues handy at all times.”

In many ways, the wedding dress is the ultimate expression of a victory for pockets in women’s clothing.

It’s about time too!

What do you think? Do you welcome this trend? Do you feel that women’s clothing needs more pockets in general? If so, why do so many women mock guys who wear cargo shorts/pants, which are pocket rich and just awesome? Is it simply jealousy then? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
