Photo of a bride and her bridesmaids with their hands in pockets have gone viral on social media. 24-year-old Eve Paterson who is a charity worker from Cambridge ensured her wedding dress would have pockets and so that of her bridesmaids. While women's clothing is known for not having pockets, these women decided to not go by traditional beliefs.
The picture of the women with their hands in pockets was shared massively on social media after one of the bridesmaids Nell Goddard tweeted the photo with a funny caption: 'My friend got married last month and her dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses ALL HAD POCKETS. Yes, we did use them for storing snacks, thank you for asking.' Bride From West Bengal Ditched Wedding Gifts And Asked Guests to Donate Blood Instead.
Eve said who got married to Angus Paterson wore a wedding gown from David's Bridal comes with pockets which makes "perfect sense". The bridesmaids' forest green dresses in varying patterns were from KF Bridal where they had to pay a small extra charge for adding pockets.
Here is the pocket squad!

The tweet received a lot of positive reaction from social media users. Women commented saying that they would also like to have more dresses with pockets. Eve said that the positive reaction to the tweet shows that more women want clothes with pockets.
Women have at multiple times have expressed displeasure about the fact that most their clothes do not have pockets or a smaller in size. While some designers internationally have tried to tailor more women dresses with pockets, the demand is high and supply remains significantly less.
Eve said, "It's just so rare for women's clothing to be practical. It might seem ridiculous to most men, but we often have to choose between convenience and looking good." She told The Independent, "My bridesmaids are all beautifully different shapes, so we decided to go with a brand where they could each pick a dress that they felt amazing in, and where we could add pockets as well," She further said, "You'd never expect to hire suits for guys and then 'add pockets' as an extra, so the idea that women have to do it is insane."
