Wedding dresses with pockets: The practical style every bride needs

There are so many reasons a bride-to-be should go for this dress.

If you’re getting married, predict a proposal is on the way, or, in true Rachel, Monica and Phoebe fashion, you just like trying on wedding dresses on with the girls, we have the thing for you. 

Shopping for the dream gown is one of those things we hope to only do once, and, with this in mind, it has to be the dream in every way. 

Fit, shape, and colour are just a handful of the finer details you’ll consider – every inch of tulle should make you happy. This being said, the peek of happiness would be to not only look and feel amazing, but to also be comfortable on your big day. 

And comfort isn’t usually associated with wedding dresses…until now. 

The dress style that’s on our radar isn’t a Bardot shape or fishtail fit, it’s all about the pockets. Yes, we said pockets.

Imagine this, you’ve just walked down the aisle, mascara tears everywhere and you just reach into your pocket to grab a tissue. Or, you’re at that part in the day waiting for the next round of food to arrive. You can reach into your pocket and pull out a snack. Game changer. 

So much of a game changer that we’ve found the best styles from Max Mara to Self Portrait so you can shop right now. Scroll down to peruse the wedding dresses with pockets that’ll make your big day complete

For the very modern bride, there’s always the option of trouser suits, jumpsuits or non-traditional dresses like the Max Mara shirt dress. Simple, elegant and one you’ll actually be able to re-wear. Add to this the fact it of course has pockets and we’re sold.

Strapless styles are always one of the most popular, but we’re all about the Bardot. The embroidered detail over the shoulders is so pretty, not to mention the pockets that are completely hidden with the draped fabric. It’s ticking a lot of boxes all round.
