Why should you have to choose between fashion and function on your wedding day? When it comes to a wedding dress with pockets, you can have both. These days, more and more brands and designers are adding sewn-in pockets to their gorgeous gowns, which is a huge win for brides.

On your big day, you'll constantly be moving around, and convenience is key. So, a wedding dress with handy pockets means you won't have to worry about where you left your clutch. Think about it: Pockets will allow you to have your wedding day must-haves nearby, whether they're your vows and tissues or your phone and lipstick (just don't pack too much in there). When searching for the perfect dress with pockets, choose a style where the pockets are designed to be discrete and blend into the structure of the silhouette—that way, they won't take away from the style of your dress but add a practical element to it.

Are you now sold on the idea of pockets? Make sure to mention it to your stylist at your bridal salon appointments. You can use The Knot Marketplace to find salons near your location. To help kick start your search, we've gathered 26 of the most beautiful wedding dresses with pockets, from sheath and A-line styles to ball gown silhouettes—and more.
