Finding the perfect wedding dress can be a fun and stressful part of organizing a wedding. What many brides don’t think about is whether their dress will be practical enough for them to go to the toilet.
With the train and a possible hoop, the bride can find herself in a bit of a hitch to hoist her dress up so she can do her ‘business’. Sometimes it’s up to the bridesmaids to lift up the gown so the bride can use the toilet without causing a mess on the hem of her dress.
To save her dignity, the bride could always undress to use the bathroom… or she could wear a Bridal Buddy.
The Bridal Buddy is an underskirt that scoops up a bride’s dress so she can go to the toilet with dignity and no hindrance.
Created in the US by Heather, who worked as a bridal consultant, the most frequently asked question was ‘How do I go to the bathroom in this thing [wedding gown]?’
Heather designed an undergarment slip that protects the full skirt of the bridal gown while the bride goes to the toilet. Heather’s mission when creating the slip was to ‘save the brides of the world from having a horrible bathroom bridal experience, one Bridal Buddy at a time’.
This video shows how the Bridal Buddy works. It’s also a great invention for all types of black tie events and formals where girls have purchased ball gowns that often need a little help in hoisting to go to the loo.
The Bridal Buddy comes in two sizes – petite and tall/long. It’s definitely a clever solution for a universal bridal problem.
Would you have used the Bridal Buddy with your wedding dress? Got any funny wedding toilet stories to share?
