"OMG! It has pockets!"

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Welcome to Gigi’s Bridal, where we celebrate the joyous journey of finding the perfect wedding dress. At Gigi’s Bridal, we understand that choosing the gown for your special day is a momentous occasion filled with excitement, emotions, and dreams. As a bride-to-be, you deserve an unforgettable experience that reflects your unique style and showcases your inner radiance. In this blog, we aim to simplify your wedding gown shopping experience and equip you with the confidence to discover your bridal look.

Wedding gowns with pockets can be a great addition to your wedding day attire, but like any design choice, they come with their own set of pros and cons. Here are some angles we suggest you keep in mind as you search for the perfect gown with pockets.

Convenience & Practicality: Wedding gowns with pockets can be very convenient as they offer a place to store something small. On your wedding day, there are many little things that are easier nestled into your pocket.

Watch out: Avoid keeping makeup in your wedding dress pocket. These items can inadvertently and unknowingly open causing unforeseen stress in your day. Leave anything prone to opening and making a mess with a trusted person nearby who can provide those touch ups as you need them.

Style and Personality: At Gigi’s Bridal we love a moment for the dress, especially with pockets which can make for a memorable photo. Pockets are a great way to incorporate personality and uniqueness to your wedding day look.

Watch out: Pockets can add bulk to a wedding gown. When you try on a gown with pockets, start without putting anything in the pockets. Ensure that the silhouette of the gown is not interrupted by the pockets that lie underneath. You will want the pockets to be discrete until you’re ready to use them.

Comfort and Freedom of Movement: Pockets can also contribute to your comfort and freedom of movement on your big day. They allow you to have a place to rest your hands, providing a natural and relaxed posture for photos and overall comfort.

Watch out: Be vigilant of your posture when taking photos with hands in your pockets which naturally leads you to lean over a bit to slide your hands into your pockets. We would suggest avoiding placing anything bulky in your pockets, like phones and wallets. The weight of these items will drag the corners of the dress and appear in photos. These kinds of items can be placed in a small stylish bag that is easy to hand off to someone trusted nearby.

In conclusion, wedding gowns with pockets can be a convenient, practical, and stylish addition to your wedding day attire. However, they can also be bulky, may require alterations, and may not work with the overall design of the gown. Ultimately, the decision to include pockets in your wedding gown should be based on personal preference and the overall style of the dress.
