Get Stuff We Love
This wedding dress is not only gorgeous, but it also has a clever, hidden feature — and the internet is obsessed.
It all started when Esther Kezia Thorpe posted a photo of her friend's bridal gown on Twitter on Sunday.
"STOP EVERYTHING so one of my friends got married yesterday and she had POCKETS ON HER WEDDING DRESS," she wrote along with a photo of the beautiful dress.
She called the pockets “the best thing I have ever seen,” and plenty of others agree. Her tweet quickly went viral, racking up more than 10,000 likes and shares in only one day.
As anyone who shops for the one-piece garment knows, finding a simple dress with pockets is tough — and probably even more so when it comes to a wedding gown.
But pockets are basically the perfect solution for brides who don’t want to carry a separate purse throughout their wedding day. They're the ideal place to store tissues for sniffles during the ceremony, mints for that special kiss, lipstick for touch ups and any other small wedding day must-have items.
The bride wishes to keep her identity private, but Kezia Thorpe confirmed to TODAY Style that the beautiful strapless dress was created by British designer Suzanne Neville.
The viral photo inspired many other women to post photos of their own wedding dresses with pockets too.
“I had pockets in mine too!!!!! It was amazing,” one woman wrote.
“I designed my dress, pockets was the first thing on my list. If I can include them... I do,” another woman shared. “Thank god I did on my wedding. My husband and I were both crazy sick. So I held our (tissues).”
And wedding dress pockets can be multifunctional, as one bride found.
Who says a wedding dress can’t be beautiful and practical?
