Peeing while in your dress!

Brides Have to Pee Too!!!
What to do ...

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!

LOL  the waling forward part works great... My first time I needed the help of 2 bridesmaids and my flower girl.... I think the train ended up over the Flower Grils head some how but it was funny cause we laughed like crazy the whole time!

I have one bathroom at my venue! Huge problem. What if I have to pee right before the ceremony?! I can't walk out to where all my guests and FH is waiting for me and use the bathroom. I'm hoping I can find another one on the first floor with another business or something.

BAHAHA this is funny but omg so true! What if I have to pee? I found a bridesmaids card and sent it to my friend on face book! It has a bride with her knees turned in and wedding dress pulled up! And it says "they say i need someone to hold up my dress wen I have to pee...will you be my bridesmaid...But i crossed out and said MOH' LOL   Thats a good idea about facing the wall.

Who knew peeing could be so complicated???

Luckily I have a bridal suite with a large bathroom upstairs away from the main one in the ballroom and I am only wearing my veil (very long) during the ceremony and bustling my dress right after

haha! I have an overactive bladder (TMI i know i know) I'm dreading this.  I was thinking about having no liquids at all that day. But it will probably be at least 70 degrees and an outdoor wedding and I don't want to pass out lol

s00ntobemrsb0lt0n .... you HAVE to drink water or fluids on your wedding day! The most common mistake brides makes is not drinking enough and becoming dehydrated! So be careful girl ... better to pee lots than become dehydrated and pass out! Now you have some tips to help make it easier lol

I think I wrote the original version of this.  I'm amused that it has traveled so far!

Really?!?!?! Yes it has traveled far ... I came across it on a few different sites. it is genius information thats why lol I wish I had been clever enough or lucky enough to have come across the idea of entering the bathroom backwards instead of struggling by myself. lol
I thought this might be helpful for the other girls here as many don't think of these things ... so great job on coming up with a list!

how sad is it that I already do this when using public bathrooms when wearing a dress :(!!! lol.  

espcially like my sundresses when I am going comando, this method is awesome! lol

Also, my girls played rock paper sciccors for who gets the front of the dress, I think my train is like 3 feet so who ever gets that has some room :).
