It’s not hard! Mine had a small train and i just used the handicap bathroom and threw it over my shoulders.  Definitely NOT worth stressing over.

Not hard at all.  Mine also had a small train.  I just took either my mom or a bm in the stall with me and all was goooooooood.

You should try practicing before the big day.  How lame does that sound, LOL? But really, practice a few times in your dress to figure out the best way to do it.  I pick mine up sometime around Christmas, so I will give it a trial run 🙂

I second what Kitzy says about peeing backwards!!! Take off your undies, straddle the toilet (so you’re facing the wall) and go. It works SO well. My sister came in with me just so I could have someone to lean on while I took off my undies, but I didn’t need anyone in there to hold my dress or anything. I was really stressed about this too, but it worked out fine 🙂  Definitely use the handicap stall too for that bit of extra room.

I had a huge train.

I went backwards. Take off your underwear completely and then straddle the toilet with your train behind you. My girls were in the bathroom with me holding my train so it wasn’t on the bathroom floor but they were outside of the door (yes the door was open) but there was so much dress they couldn’t see anything.

I usually pee like a maniac but on my wedding day – I only peed once. Even though I drank A LOT! You are so excited and having a good time I feel like my body shut down my pee! LOL

Oh my god I am stressing over the exact thing!  I will literally be unable to pee if somebody else is even in the bathroom with me when I’m nervous!  I am stressing and stressing that my bridesmaids will insist that they will need to help me!  I just want to be able to have my own private bathroom (the place we’re having the reception and ceremony is big, and there will probably be a whole area reserved for me to get ready in) and figure out how to pee on my own.  Please give suggestions!

You’ll figure it out! Mine had a small train, and I was able to do it myself!

Ok, after reading that article I’m definitely using the “straddle the toilet” method.  Whew!

It’s not hard. I insisted on doing it myself and was fine. Not to be TMI here, but I was also changing tampons during my wedding and well, there was no way that someone else helped me with that process, lol

@jaylii9: Ugh not fun. I remember being a teenager at my cousin’s wedding, and being in the bathroom when his new wife came in with all her BMs and her sister having to change her pad!!!! Still emotionally scarring when I think about it 15 years later…. LOL!

Oh and I peed twice once my dress was on. I was too distracted/excited/focussed on everything else to think about whether or not I had to pee for the most part!!! I went once before the ceremony, and then once before dinner and that was it for the night! I think by the time we got back to the hotel though I was doing a bit of a pee pee dance, LOL!
