How to Have a Tinkle While Wearing Your Dress
This is a touchy subject. It might be something you’d ask your dress maker but it’s not something us girls talk about. However, after spending on average between £400 - £800 on a dress that you’ll only wear once, you don’t want to pee on your dress!
It’s difficult enough to pop to the ladies when you’re wearing a long dress, but in a dress with a train, corset in which you have been tied, zipped, tucked and squeezed, it’s even more difficult! And you’re most likely to need the toilet on your wedding day with reception drinks, table drinks, toasting drinks and all the drinks your friends and family will buy you to help you celebrate.
Here are some tips on how to use the loo without dripping on your dress:
- Use your hotel toilet!
If you can, nip to the loo in your hotel room if it’s near your reception venue. It’ll be more private and you’ll have more time and space to relive yourself.
- Bridesmaids are brilliant..
If you’re really stuck and have to go, and you have a bridesmaid who is amazing, you could ask her to come with you just to hold your dress out the way. But this is something very personal so make sure you ask the right person. Maybe your mum would be best?
- One last tip!
Finally, one last tip from ProjectWedding that seems to have worked for brides all over! Face the toilet!
- If you can’t use your hotel room toilet, go in the disabled toilets. There will be more space for you to manoeuvre. Even if you’re in a slimmer fitting dress I’d suggest the disabled toilet as you can never have too much room!
- Remove your underwear so it’s not just around your ankles, it’s off completely.
- Walk straight forward, so you are straddling the toilet, and sit down that way. The train/back of your dress will now be away from the toilet, so you won’t get them wet or dirty.
- Lean forward before peeing. That way, even if you drop the front of the dress onto the seat, you will not pee in its direction.
Using the toilet is a touchy subject, no one wants to talk about it but if you follow the advice here you won’t have to worry!
