With wedding season in full swing, brides everywhere are finding solutions to the unique problem of having to to relieve themselves while wearing an extremely expensive, often highly voluminous wedding gown. It’s customary for bridesmaids to head to the loo with the bride to lift their dress up high to avoid any disasters, but it looks like there might be a clever new hack hitting the bridal scene, courtesy of our beloved Ikea.

Sure, having a trusted friend or sister help you pee might not sound like a big deal, but for brides looking for a brief moment of privacy on a whirlwind day, the Ikea Frakta Shopping Bag just might be your new best friend.

Here’s where Ikea comes to the rescue. According to a Facebook post from Djsweeby, by cutting a hole in the bottom of an Ikea Frakta shopping bag, a bride can easily save her dress and her dignity on her wedding day.
