You won't need your bridesmaids help going to the loo with this clever trick!

bride hack

One woman has proved that IKEA really can save you in any situation as she demonstrates how brides can use one of the classic blue shopping bags to go for a wee in your wedding dress!

And before you think it involves peeing into the bag you're wrong – it's much cleverer than that!

In fact, it involves cutting the bottom of the bag away and using the handles as straps...

Sharing her hack on Facebook the woman explained: '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.'

She continued: '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!'

After looking online for different gadgets and products to help make going to the toilet in her wedding dress easier, the bride-to-be was dissapointed to find that the products that were available cost a fortune.

So she came up with a clever alternative that costs just 80p – hello blue IKEA bag!

She explains: 'My bridal bathroom helper hack costs about 0.80 euro and I did it the day before my wedding. It took only 3 minutes. What I like best is it’s almost free and allows me to make my life easier on my wedding day. So here is the hack.’

If we have to raise the one downside to the hack, it's that it means cutting up your IKEA bag and making sure it's in the loos of your wedding venue when you need it.

Perhaps you could assign someone to be on IKEA bag watch and stock up on the blue bags before your big day...
