Wedding dresses with pockets are becoming very popular for the convenience that they bring without having to sacrifice the elegance of the dress. As a bride, you never know what you might need to stash in there – be it some Kleenex, a handkerchief, lip gloss or a small mirror for quick touch ups. The cheekiest brides can even hide some snacks in there!
According to The Bridal Association of America, the average cost of a wedding dress in the U.S is $1,505. However, it can also cost up to $5,000 for a custom-made designer dress or as low as $200 at a department store for an off-the-rack dress. You can also look out for sales at bridal boutiques and get dresses that can be bought for less than the marked price.
If you opt for a pocketed wedding gown, ball gown and A-line shapes are still your best bet, as they will hide any bulges that may occur.
David’s Bridal, America’s largest bridal retailer, has beautiful wedding dresses that will hide such bulges. For example, their faille, strapless, empire waist, ball gown dress with pockets costs between $449 and $549, depending on the length of the dress. On the other hand, a surplice style, V-neck dress at Aria Bridals will cost you between $500 and $1,000.
Other designers and brands that have beautiful pocketed wedding dresses worth looking at include Casablanca Bridal, Kleinfield Bridal, J.Crew, Mori Lee and Watters, with the prices ranging between $1,000 and $1,500.
On the dresses made by these brands, the pockets are so well-hidden that no one can tell that the dress has pockets. The dress still looks as glamorous as it would if it didn’t have any, making it a very practical option that is ideal for the bride who does not want to carry a purse all day. Therefore, if you have been looking for that additional touch that will make your wedding dress perfect, pockets on it should seal the deal.
