heh…. having been in a few weddings as a bridesmaid before I have witnessed just exactly how the bride uses the bathroom… (or at least a bride with a ballgown…)

she takes a couple of friends with her in the stall to hold her dress up for her so it doesn’t somehow end up in the toilet… and often this means the bathroom stall door is hanging open so everyone can fit in…

it’s not pretty but its necessary to keep your dress from getting wet or dirty…

I forget where I read this, but I heard it’s good to enlist a good friend or mom, sister, etc. to help you. Ditto on the stuff from glowawber/2dBride above, and also (if you’re comfortable with it): have your helper enter the stall first, then you enter. Your helper will hitch up the skirt while you do your business, and I think you get the picture from there. Heehee!

BACKWARDS!!

Seriously!  Face towards the toilet instead of away, it’s soooo much easier, it totally removes the train issue.

I’ve been a bridesmaid too many times to count.  Usually the bride backs into the handicapped stall and a couple of people hold the back of the dress up over her head.

like texasmeredith I’ve done the bridesmaid thing 7 times….and it’s typically involved holding a dress so someone can pee.  I had my Maid/Matron of Honor help me once, and decided it was crazy to need to pull someone else away from the fun, so I figured out the same thing  2Dbride did, and it worked like a charm the remainder of the evening!

In addition to having a friend hold up the back of my dress, I found her help invaluable in being able to reach the toilet paper!  In a ball gown, you’re not exactly showing off anything to the friend helping.  I did go successfully by myself at our hotel before I took off my dress, but I’d enlist help while it’s around!

I didn’t have a big ball gown, but after the ceremony and pictures, I took a potty break and took my dress completely off!  Thankfully it was easy to take on/off, not a lot of buttons or anything.  Then I didn’t go again until the end of the night.
