How to Pee While Wearing Your Wedding Gown... 

There are 4 different ways to pee in your wedding gown... and some techniques are best suited to the type of gown you are wearing, which we will detail below. 

If you are have another possible way feel free to let us know in the comments below! 

1. Sitting Normally 

This does require some help from your entourage/bridal party/mum/sister to hold your gown from the front and, depending on the size of your gown, the back too. In a ballgown, this has proved somewhat troublesome, but fit and flare and A-line are definitely acheiveable this way. The awkward factor is that you will be looking directly at one of your 'helpers,' so might pay to get someone who you know quite well...

2. Sitting Backwards

This is actually quite clever! Once again, you will need someone to hold the gown from behind you while you hold the front of your gown over the back of the toilet, but this does allow you a little more room for the back of your gown, if you've chosen a long train. So this could definitely work for all styles and shapes of gowns... so long as you are comfortable with your 'helper' potentially seeing your butt...

3. Rubbish Bag 

This technique requires a little bit of prep and storage prior to the big day. A rubbish bag will work as an under skirt and tie up around your waist with the draw string, while you stuff your gown into the bag... you can have help to do this, (because it will be hilarious!) or you can do this one on your own! (Depending on the amount of wine you have had...)

This works fine for a fit and flare/mermaid gown, however the bigger the skirt, the larger your trash sack is gonna have to be... an A-line gown can just fit into a 150L bag, so you would be best to go straight for the 240L trash sack if you have a ball gown.

4. The Bridal Buddy 

This handy little prop has been getting a lot of attention over the past few years, and for good reason too! You can put this on under your gown and wear it all day long! It acts as another petticoat layer but with a good purpose. This also means that you can go to the bathroom as many times as you want! It also has nifty little arm holes so, unlike the trash sack, you can really envelop youself into the bridal buddy and you can do this all by yourself too! 

The bridal buddy is said to work for all gowns, big and small. It comes in two different sizes; petite 32" and average/tall 42", but there have been mixed reviews about whether the ball gown style fits completely inside the bridal buddy.
