We know WED2B brides love wedding dresses with pockets. Whether you’re going for lace and glitter or minimalist modern Mikado, discovering secret pockets in your dream dress is always a joy.

And, what’s not to love? They’re the perfect place to keep your lipgloss and some essential tissues, they give you something to do with your hands while you’re chatting or having photos taken and pockets really do give any design a cool modern twist. They also work well with lots of different styles of dress, from extravagant ball gowns to more fitted Mikado A-line styles, as you can see from the selection below…

Modern sophistication

Adelaide is a classic/contemporary mix that looks beautifully timeless. The on-trend, off-the-shoulder straps flatter the shoulders and arms and are a subtle modern detail. Then there’s the stylish crisp skirt with its delightful hidden pockets.

The sleek Mikado fabric has just the right amount of subtle shimmer for a pared-back contemporary feel. Plus, the smart cuff neckline can be dressed up or down, with just a small pendant necklace or a pair of bold statement earrings.

At the back the cuff detail continues and then the Mikado flows out from the neat waistband into a magnificent train. Try adding a glittering Leonie belt to accentuate the waistline and wearing it with an underskirt too, for maximum volume.

Pockets for a princess

Liliwen is straight from a fairytale, but princess brides still need wedding dresses with pockets! The dramatic Mikado skirt is the stand-out feature here, with its extra long shimmering train and chic line of buttons running all the way to the hem.

The classic sweetheart bodice showcases couture-inspired boning and fully beaded floral embroidery. It also has a luxurious Chantilly lace layer and the floral lace is embellished with dazzling sequins and pearlescent glass beads.

Take a closer look and you can see exactly how much work and detailing has gone into creating this exquisite Platinum Edition bodice, too.

We also love how the detailing tumbles prettily down the majestic skirt. And, if that’s not enough there are, of course, the secret hidden pockets for a few must-have essentials! Wear this with our ballgown underskirt for even more showstopping drama and then finish the look with a suitably regal tiara

A stylish matt finish

Don’t want shimmer? Then strikingly elegant Preston could be the one for you. This contemporary A-line is made from luxurious matt Mikado, that looks sleek, simple and elegantly understated. The practical pockets are just the icing on a very stylish cake!

The bodice is beautifully cut, with modern off-the-shoulder straps and an on-trend plunging neckline with discreet illusion panel. The smart seams also have a sculpting effect, as they lead down to the neat waistline. We think this looks amazing with an equally contemporary belt.

The gently dipped back leads to a row of chic Mikado buttons that run all the way down to the hem, alongside more elegant seams and those all-important pockets. Less is more with this minimalist design, and an A-line underskirt and just a touch of sparkle in your hair complete the look perfectly.

Classic luxury

Lastly, we have Beatrice, one of our Platinum Edition luxury wedding dresses. This absolutely stunning design pairs sleek Mikado with exquisite beading for the perfect mix of modern luxe and fairytale romance.

The semi-sheer bodice features exquisite floral lace, embellished with hundreds of pearlescent glass beads and sequins, for sparkle from every angle. The dipped V neckline and off-the-shoulder, illusion straps are also perfectly cut to be super flattering.

At the back, another neat V-neckline leads to a row of pretty pearlescent buttons. Plus there are even more embroidered leaves, flowers and tumbling tendrils to catch the eye!

Finally, cast your eyes down to the extra-long, 100-inch train, made from luxurious Mikado. It’s absolutely captivating and offers the perfect contrast to the detailing on the bodice. And, if that’s not enough, we promise you’ll love it even more when you realise it has hidden pockets!

A pocketful of love…

Read through our real bride stories and you’ll see WED2B brides like wedding dresses with pockets just as much as we do. Laura chose our gorgeous Cambridge dress for her pink and navy wedding near Chelmsford. “I wore Cambridge, a timeless and stunning dress,” says Laura. “I always thought I’d wear something fitted and detailed, but it was so classic and such a striking shape. Then, when I realised there were pockets, I was beside myself. Perfect for snacks!”

Destiny chose the beautiful Beckingsale gown in Mikado. “I love this gown because of the stunning detail at the back of the dress, and how elegant it is,” she says. “It’s so comfy and it has pockets, too. But I had to have it because my best friend chose it, it’s perfect for me!”

Real bride Emily found her wedding dress with pockets at WED2B’s Middlesbrough store. “It was the first shop we went to,” she says. “And I loved the very first dress I tried on. I picked Florian, as it was satin, corset style and, best of all, it also had pockets!”
