I’m starting to look at wedding dresses now and saw a couple of pictures of wedding dresses with pockets. Genius! However, I don’t know which company/designer makes them. Have any of you bought/worn/considered a dress with pockets and did you find it a useful replacement for a handbag?

my dress has pockets, but i honestly dont know how much i would put in them, other than a hankie and some lipstick – i will still have a purse, too
oh, and designers that make them – mine is from david’s bridal, but im sure that you could find them from a lot of other designers too
i would attach a pic, but the dress is discontinued, so i can’t find them online anymore 🙁

casablanca will add pockets to their full-skirt dresses for $80. i think aria dresses have pockets too.
i don’t think pockets are a replacement for a handbag. i like pockets because they give me somewhere to put my hands if i’m standing around, but if you put a lipgloss or something in it you might have strange bumps show up in your photos.

My Mori Lee dress has pockets and it was great! During the wedding, I used them to hold a hankie, my husband’s wedding band, some lip gloss, and the poem I read during our ceremony. For the afterparty, I held my ID (it was at a bar) and a $20 bill (which, of course, I didn’t need).

Ohh, the idea of getting them sown in is genius, definitely opens up the selection a bit more! I’ve been lusting after this dress: http://www.demetriosbride.com/intl/index.php?page=collection2011&s=6
Do you think that would look ok with the pockets sown in?

I just want to say, I’ve heard numerous people complain about that when a brides gown has pockets, they constantly have their hands in them like it’s a sweatshirt or something. I think it’s such a cool idea, but I would def. be concious about not constantly having my hands in them. Otherwise, awesome idea to put in your lipstick or anything else small!

@missa2152: Ha! I barely had a moment when I had my hands to myself to put them in my pockets! Now that I think about it, I should have carried some hand sanitizer.

@Oxfordnerd: Watters (and the less expensive line Wtoo) makes a lot of dresses that have pockets in them (usually ballgowns). Aria wedding dresses (ballgown silhouette) also have pockets.

My dress is from Allure and one of the selling points is that it has pockets. I think any dress is made better with pockets! In fact most of the dresses in my closet have them. I plan on carrying tissues and maybe my lip gloss and can’t think of anything else I would need.

My dress has pockets! I’m a Softlips addict (um…literally. If I don’t have a Softlips in arm’s reach at all times, my lips instantly start to get chapped. 😉 I have like 50 Softlips floating around my house, car, FI’s car, he even carries some in his backpack for emergencies…but I digress) and the big joke is that I got a dress with pockets so I won’t be without my beloved Softlips on the big day!
I get irritated with clutches and purses, so a dress with pockets was a total win for me!
I’ve posted my dress a bajilion times, but I guess one more won’t hurt. 🙂

I have tried on two dresses with pockets, both of which had full aline/ball gown type skirts:
Mimi by WTOO: http://watters.com/Product/WtooBrides/15828/
Coco by Amsale: http://amsale.com/bridal/amsalecollection/080707/coco.shtml
Neither of them ended up working for me, but I did love the pockets!

My DB dress has pockets and I am sooo excited about it! I really don’t think I’ll keep much in them, other than a tissue or handkerchief, but I think they’re just nice to have.
From what I can tell, most of the full skirt dresses at DB have pockets now… I think it’s starting to become a lot more popular! Anyone else remember watching that SYTTD a few years ago when that girl insisted on having pockets and everyone thought she was crazy? Now look at all of the dresses with pockets in them!! 🙂
