You should be ok. Have your bridesmaids help you hold your dress. That’s what I did.

Easy peasy! You sit frontwards.. It sounds ridiculous (and complicated) but, I read it in a wedding magazine while I was planning and it actually works.

My dress was a ballgown that I removed a number of layers from so, it was poofy but not overly so.

The best trick I learned was to walk forward onto the toilet instead of turning around to sit like you usually would. Then bridesmaids can just hold your train and stuff behind you.

I might have to have my mom, Mother-In-Law, or bridesmaids help me. If not, I may be able to manage it on my own by facing the toilet (sounds weird, but other brides have seem to have some success using that method, lol).

Great tip about facing the toilet! I definitely don’t plan to drink much that afternoon, though.

I took my sister in the bathroom with me and had her hold it up! 🙂

Another vote for bring a buddy! My Maid/Matron of Honor and/or my mom helped me hold up the dress.

I vote for lift up and walk into the toilet forward. That being said, I am someone who has a tiny bladder and has to pee a bunch and I only went to the bathroom once after I got into my dress. I think I just kind of didn’t think of it with the excitement of the day. So don’t let the bathroom situation weigh too heavily when you are choosing your dress!

I just took mine off. But I had a fairly simple sheath dress and the wedding was at home so I could just get naked in our bedroom and then pee.

yes to facing forward.

I was so dehydrated from being overwhelmed I only had to pee once.

I am very, very private when it comes to the bathroom, and it is definitely something I worry about! I have an A-line gown with several layers underneath, and a small train. I am hoping the walking up to the toilet plan, with me just hiking everything up, will work!
