Alert from Sally Conant
We all know we should check the pockets of everyday clothing for pens, loose money, and whatever else people forget to remove from their pockets. But did you know many, many of today’s wedding gowns have pockets? And guess what—lipsticks left in the pockets of designer wedding gowns make a hot mess in the machine. I recently learned this the hard way at my own plant in Connecticut. Luckily we were able to put the gown to rights again, but we have since found three more lipsticks in the pockets of wedding gowns. Most recently the pocket of the gown the bride brought to me was full of hair pins.

Why wedding gowns with pockets? Apart from lipstick and hairpins, breath mints or disposable camera, a bride may want to carry a photograph of a loved one who cannot be present at her wedding.
I have gone online to find wedding gowns with pockets.
What a trend! Very cool.
