Bride shares genius IKEA bag hack so she can go to the toilet in her wedding dress

Bride shares genius IKEA bag hack so she can go to the toilet in her wedding dress

A British bride shared a her cost-effective hack to fuss-free bridal bathroom breaks and all you need is an IKEA carrier bag

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes but there's one problem every wedding dress wearing woman faces — how to navigate bathroom breaks in your bridal gown.

Dress difficulties typically fall into one of two camps: volume or tightness. A massive ballgown will involve wrestling through layers of tulle in an often tiny toilet stall, while fitted fishtails can be challenging to hoist up.

Luckily, one bride has found a genius and cost-effective solution.

A British bride by the name of Tina shared her brilliant hack on and has brides to be all over the world rejoicing!

A bride's genius wedding hack comes from everyone's favourite furniture store.

She wrote: "Well, I got married a few weeks ago (in a mermaid wedding dress) and I was really worried about going to the bathroom and not being able to... handle myself.

"Someone helping or watching me going to the bathroom on my wedding day? Not being able to have free hands to use the toilet paper? Or even worse if my period decides to show? NO WAY!"

So, she came up with a foolproof plan and all you need is one of IKEA's iconic FRAKTA carrier bags and a pair of scissors.

Photos show the bride sat on the loo, with the skirt of her dress scooped up in the big blue bag, allowing her to use the toilet with ease.

All you need to do is cut a hole in the bottom of the bag that's just big enough to pass over your hips without your dress falling through.

Then, on your wedding day, you simply step into the hole, pull the bag up until it gathers the fabric of the skirt and place the handles over your shoulders for fuss-free toilet trips all day long. No bridesmaids' assistance required!

Tina explained that while purpose-built products do exist for bridal bathroom needs, they often carry a hefty price tag 'just because [they're] wedding related'.

One example is the Bridal Buddy bathroom helper, which costs a whopping $34.95 (£28.05). Tina's hack, on the other hand, costs just 99 US cents (79p).

The hack is a lot more cost-effective than purpose built bridal products.

"What I like best is it’s almost free and allows me to make my life easier on my wedding day," Tina shared.

After the hack was shared to Facebook, people were quick to start tagging their friends and sharing their thoughts.

One person wrote, "IKEA always making my life easier."

"I could've used one of these on my wedding day," claimed another.

One person even joked: “Wedding prezzie sorted.”

So it seems that the latest wedding planning essential is a trip to everyone's favourite furniture store. It can even be your something blue!
