Pocket Wedding Dresses

Every so often, a new trend emerges from the wedding industry that is so ingenious that it makes everyone smack their head and say “Why didn’t I think of that?“. With that being said, I’d like to introduce our readers to the awesomeness of the pocket wedding dress. Yes, wedding dresses with pockets!

Not only is having a pocket on a wedding dress super practical, but it adds a certain discreet function to the dress that is currently absent from yesterday’s bridal fashion. Below are 10 examples that just might have reconsidering your preferences when choosing that perfect wedding dress.

Smart, simple, and useful are three words I would use to describe pocket wedding dresses. The essential need for convenient intelligent design without compromising style and substance is the main reason this is one bridal trend to be on the lookout for in 2010.

It’s time to say “hello” to the pocket wedding dress.

  • Awesome! Now the bride can hold my lens cap and be responsible for their own memory cards 🙂


    I seriously LOVE dresses with pockets and that first gown is to die for.

  • Yes!! I just talked to my younger sister (who lives in NY and recently got engaged) and she mentioned a lot of the higher end bridal boutiques in here area are featuring their own versions of a pocket dress. Seems like a good idea to me.

  • I love that these gowns let brides carry their lip gloss and must-haves while still looking gorgeous! Some dresses with pockets can make them feel cheapened. Def a growing trend with designers!

    *smacks head* Why didn't I think of this? 🙂

    The pockets could be hidden in the dress pleats! Awesome idea!

  • I love the idea of pockets – hold tissues and other [small] items. I like it more discreet, however. Something about a bold pocket on a gown that just doesn't seem right…

  • Great idea but remember don't put anything that could leak or get smushed in there.. :o)

  • Absolutely! Great idea.

  • My dress doesn't have pockets but I really wish it did. I would love to have a dress with pockets.

  • I really love these. Fresh, flirty, and casual but still beautiful.

  • This post is so exciting! Thank you for collating such an intriguing collection of 'pocket' gowns.

    Really glad to see this trend taking off. Been on the verge of popularity for the past year or so.

  • I actually really love this trend, even on bridal gowns!

  • I actually really love this trend, even on bridal gowns!

  • Love the pockets! I wish those had been around when I got married!

  • Why would a bride need pockets in her wedding dress? The function of this still remains unclear to me, unless she wants to slip in her blackberry on her wedding day!!! Can someone explain???

  • ^^ I guess for the same reason she might need a clutch. To put stuff in. Like lipstick or tissues or a goodluck charm or her speech.

    I LOVE wedding dresses with pockets. Lends some casual cool to the wedding day look.

  • GOOD cuz when (if) I get married I'm going to need a buttload of kleenex without actually having to store it in my butt (or the cleavage I don't have).

  • I got married 3 years ago and my dress had pockets! It was a Pronovias design. It was great, useful, and everyone was so impressed! I never know what to do with my hands when I'm nervous. Also no one noticed until I put my hands in them, and someone said "wow!"

  • To hide a few tissues, lip gloss for touch ups, her grandmother's hankie, or just somewhere to put your hands when taking photos – what a chic shot, no?

  • About time !
    Brilliantly simple and simply brilliant for sure.

    Who designed that first dress? I've seen that dress on so many wedding blogs and no one says or seems to know where that mystery picture came from! Ah!

  • Ahhh, pocket wedding dresses? Sounds like a great idea. Men have pockets in their tuxes, why not allow women the same benefit?? Just has to be done in an elegant way. There are a couple in those pictures that look sharp!!

  • very nice dress….
    its wonderful…

  • lovely collection………..

  • I think that gowns must have pockets. I say this from personal experience. When I was married my grandmother handed me an envelope with money for good luck which she told me to place under my bra since my dress has no pockets. I felt quite conscious because I was worried the envelope would fall somewhere and I would not notice it.

    Im getting married this year and i'm looking for a dress with pockets. Thank you for this posting.

  • We love everything about this! We were thinking that this allows the bride to carry the rings (you know we don't trust the best man to get the job done)

  • I'm seeing more and more brides choose this dress option. Good call 🙂
