Walk forward and lift the skirt. Have someone help you hold the train. You should be fine. It’s easier than it sounds to maneuver..I promise 🙂 I did it in a fitted dress with layers of lace and a long train.

JuliaCanter:  I don’t like peeing in front of anyone either but desperate times call for desperate measures and on your wedding day, this will be the last thing on your mind on top of everything. Whenever I had to go, I would ask one of my bridesmaids to come with me to help out, haha. At the after party, I even asked the wife of one of the groomsmen. They will understand and be cool with it!

EDIT – I needed help because my dress was a ballgown with all these layers of tulle petticoat that required lifting and pushing aside to even sit on the toilet.

JuliaCanter:  There’s totally a picture of me on the toilet floating around somewhere. I did the sit backwards thing and it worked well and I could get a moment alone which was really nice.

I also did the sit backwards thing and had 2 bridesmaids hold up my dress. Worked like a charm. I probably could have handled it solo but (1) I didn’t want to risk dropping my dress and peeing on it and (2) these girls have already seen me pee before so who cares?

JuliaCanter:  I had a pretty big ballgown skirt and took my Mum and sister to the bathroom with me. They helped me to hold it up to get “in position” and then they left me to pee in private! I found the most awkward part to be pulling my tights back up!!

I do wonder how brides in those really tight mermaid dresses manage. Do they have to take it off completely???

JuliaCanter:  I go through the worst case of stage fright when it’s time to go so I need to be alone for this.  I too have wondered and searched far and wide.  Let’s just say Pinterest saves lives!!!  I know this seems funny to do but I have a feeling it’s going to make wee time easy peasy!

I took mine off it went on and off over my hips so it wasn’t an issue if it was just peeing I prob would’ve done the sit backwards thing but I had to have stomach issues on my wedding day didn’t I? Lol

If you’re going to sit on the toilet backwards (facing the cistern) I suggest you check where the toilet paper is and grab some before sitting down if necessary. You wouldn’t want to have to lean too far backwards or contort to get the paper after you’ve already peed!

I actually had no problems using the toilet just as I would in any other clothes. And I had a huge multiple layer tulle ball gown. I read about using the toilet backwards but surprisingly found that I could use it just normal way (and without anyone’s assistance). I just grabed my train and skirt and it wasn’t that hard at all.
