200 days and counting.... Wow, it's hard to believe. It's been a rough few weeks and hubby's bes...
I am wondering how many of you have thought about this detail or planned it into your day? After all, brides have to pee too you know!
Having to walk down the isle in a really big dress is hard enough, so when nature calls, what do you do in your beautiful long train or a tight corset back? For some lucky brides, your venues may be hosted in a hotel ballroom which usually means you are lucky enough to sneak up to your hotel room to pee in privacy. But for those brides without one, peeing may be quite the adventure at your venue. Are you the bride who wants to quickly sneak away un-noticed and handle natures situation on your own or in this situation, does your bridesmaids become your best friends? I came across a few different websites a while back with some useful info on what to do, so you can easily plan your attack before hand and execute it perfectly on your wedding day!
On arrival at your venue:
* Open the door of the ladies' room and look in.
* If the floor is not clean, call the venue staff and ask to have it cleaned.
* If the floor is clean, walk into the ladies' room and open the door of the handicapped stall.
* If the floor of the handicapped stall is not clean, call the venue staff and ask to have it cleaned.
This ensures that you will not later get the train/back of the dress dirty just by having it touch the floor.
When you finally need to go:
* Walk into the handicapped stall. Remove (don't just pull down) your underpants.
* Facing the toilet, pull up the front of your dress to your waist.
* 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.

I hope this either really helped you or simply gave you a good little chuckle picturing yourself. Remember, it may seem silly but while the idea of bustling up your dress may seem like a great idea, using these techniques will help you stray away from ugly crinkles in your dress or unwanted accidents!
