There is not an ounce of a lie when women say they need functional pockets in their clothing and not just decorative ones. You might feel a certain excitement the moment you discover pockets in your outfits but this woman was on cloud nine after finding a wedding dress with pockets, corsetry and elegant gold fabric. That's not it. She got the dress for free. A dream wedding gown could be as expensive as a luxury car, but finding it for free might make you want to select a partner and get married simply so you could charm with that wedding dress.

u/Ok_Brief4781 shared a story that might either make you green with envy or feel inspired to have a wedding gown with pockets. She revealed that she bought the dress from a local thrift store.

She explained that she frequently sells her clothes for store credit. She wrote, "Got my wedding dress for free at a local second-hand shop where I sell clothes for credit. Was only tagged at $18 anyway. It has actual boning, gold bird fabric and pockets," while also sharing one front view picture of the wedding dress on herself. The dress was a detailed gold strapless midi dress with boning detailing that she paired with matching open-toe high heels.

The post received more than 2k upvotes and many comments going gaga over this deal. Some comments even demanded more pictures, especially focusing on the thrill of pockets, and were curious about other details of the elegant dress. "That is beautiful! I demand more pictures, especially a close-up of the fabric and the back. It looks intricate and delicate," commented u/63Aria54. "Shut up it has pockets?!" wrote u/fullstack_newb. "I demand pictures of the pockets," added u/TinyPinkSparkles.

"Lovely. Very Audrey Hepburn-esque," praised u/shatabee4. Calling it the perfect wedding dress, u/Bacon_Bitz said, "It's beautiful, you're beautiful. It will make a perfect wedding dress! Congratulations." 

If frugal deals, coupons and good thrifts also fill you with excitement, especially during wedding season, then you should know about Rachel Connealy, who got married in Florida and bought not one but two dresses for less than $10. The 27-year-old went to thrift stores to find her wedding gown and ended up purchasing two—one for $3 and another for $5. With her wedding dresses only costing $8, she had more money to spend on other things, such as buying dresses for all of her bridesmaids. Her gown appeared to be a replica of Meghan Markle's Givenchy gown, which she wore to her wedding to Prince Harry in 2019.

Connealy considered it from a practical standpoint as well. She stated that it was pointless to wear an expensive gown for just one day. "I still felt like a princess on my day," said Connealy, reported Good Morning America. "I guess my own version of what a princess looks like. You go to the wedding dress section of a thrift store and there are these beautiful white silks and vintage lace and get creative with it. For me, I would much rather have an experience than have this dress in a box that I can show my kids in 20 years that they're like, 'That's so out of style.'" Connealy advised other brides to look in thrift stores and thrift lingerie sections.
