Your wedding day can feel like a dream and a fairytale, but there are certain realities that you will be unable to avoid. The biggest one of all: at some point you will have to use the restroom. Always go to the restroom with at least one of your bridesmaids or maid of honor.
Wedding celebrations tend to involve champagne, delicious food, dancing, and fancy white dresses. The dresses in particular can make it pretty difficult for the bride to take bathroom breaks during her special day—and often, a bridesmaid or mom is recruited to help hold the dress fabric out of the way to keep it from falling in the toilet. Luckily, some genius has invented a device that means brides can pee in peace on their wedding day, without worrying about their dress.
With so many layers of tulle, chiffon, and organza flowing around you or tight-fitting lace! But between rows of buttons, finicky zippers, and those pesky eye hooks, that doesn't sound so easy, either. Is there a better way to use the restroom in your wedding dress?
Found an articile on sitting on the toilet backwards to avoid getting the back of your dress wet. Good idea, for sure. Like the minute before. I had a similar silhouette and just pulled my skirt up and sat normal.
How to you pee in your wedding dress? And well, it stopped us in our tracks, how exactly DO you pee in a wedding dress? Well depending on the dress, it could be as easy as hiking up your skirt and going as usual, or it could be an undertaking involving several bridesmaids, an Ikea bag and a She Pee.

The string quartet played your processional perfectly, the dried flower petal toss is destined to go down in wedding blog history, and you floated across the ballroom with your new husband during your first dance with the poise and synchronistic grace of those ballerina emojis. All is perfectly on point—because you planned it to be.
Things I don't love: Having the third help me handle the first in order to deal with the consequences of the second. I figured this trick out just prior to my wedding, as my dress was as you can see particularly unruly and I didn't really love the idea of employing a small army to help me keep it out of the toilet water though my bridesmaids were willing to help, bless 'em. Had it been a bit easier to get in and out of, I might have just taken it off, but no — that was a complicated, multi-person operation as well, involving a whole bunch of lacing and carefully placed safety pins and chicken cutlets — not to mention being topless in a public restroom.
What, with all the other things a bride is thinking about on the morning of her wedding, something like pee probs kind of just falls off the radar. And it was annoying AF. Someone helping or watching me going to the bathroom on my wedding day? Not being able to have free hands to use the toilet paper?
Ah, weddings: an event that requires all the skills for surviving in the wilderness, while using all the brain power of vodka. Sitting normally on the toilet, and having someone lift my skirt from behind, and from the front. I am also wearing appropriate lingerie and petticoats for all of these.
Okay so I got married about 2 weeks ago and I didn't have the balls to ask the question 'how do I pee with this dress on? I had thought of asking my maid of honour to help with lifting said massive dress but when the moment came I was alone. Maybe people will think omg that's so gross why have you posted this?
