Wedding Dress Trends: Perfectly Practical Pockets!

Perfectly Practical Pockets: Wedding Dress Trends

Wedding gowns with pockets are a hot trend

When it comes to creating a wedding gown, practicality isn't often high on the list of requirements! This seems to be changing though, with the biggest global fashion search platform Lyst revealing recently that searches for wedding dresses with pockets have increased by a massive 83% over the past six month period.

From high street bridal lines to couture wedding dress makers, more and more designers are adding pockets to wedding gowns. Far from being simply a practical addition, different styles of pocket have become aesthetic design elements in their own right; a significant proportion of the wedding gowns on show at Bridal Fashion Week featured one or more pockets. The unlikely yet undeniable trend for wedding jumpsuits instead of traditional gowns has further spurred the related pocket trend.

Robin Weil is the CEO and founder of and, commenting on the trend, said, "Wedding dresses with pockets have been gaining popularity... from a bride’s perspective, it’s quite a practical solution if they want to keep their phone, tissues or lipstick with them, it’s ideal.

Social media users are sharing the wedding dress with pockets trend, further adding to its growing impetus. One Twitter user pretty much summed everything up with a tweet that read 'STOP EVERYTHING so one of my friends got married yesterday and she had POCKETS ON HER WEDDING DRESS which is just the best thing I have ever seen'. Pretty convincing, we think you will agree!
