    My dress has pockets and it is not a poofy ball gown, though it is listed as a ball gown. I love them and I think they will come in handy. I can keep some lipstick/lip gloss and tissue close by if I need it.

    Most, but not all, wedding gowns with pockets have fuller skirts. I think pockets are great to stash a tissue, but not much else otherwise you ruin the line of the dress.

    The downside of a dress with pockets, is the natural tendency to stand with your hand in the pocket, which can be a little sloppy look for a bride.

    @kristen182:  Pockets seem awesome as long as the dress looks nice! I’ve seen both pretty and terrible dresses with pockets so it all depends. Do you have one in mind?

    I LOVE dresses with pockets! I so wish mine had had them. One of my bridesmaids had a satin dress with pockets, and both the other bridesmaids and I were really jealous. You couldn’t tell she had them until she put her hands in them, and she had a place to keep her (silenced) phone, chapstick, etc.

    I wish mine had pockets, I’d love to not have to keep up with a clutch! It’s too form fitting though. I say yes as long as the dress is pretty!

    I think as long as they’re not real noticeable, then go with what you want.  I actually tried on one ball gown with pockets and I felt like it was such a “fun” dress because of the pockets!

    Mine had pockets, and you could only tell when I put my hands in them.. which I hardly did. I did use them to hold Kleenex for the ceremony.. other than that I didn’t use them much, wish I would of remembered to put my lipgloss in them. I did get a cute picture of me with my hands in my pocket.

    Mine has pockets, but you can only tell if I put my hands in. I’m not sure if I’ll use them but I love that they are there!
