There has been a lot of “Hooplah” over these so called bridal diapers and honestly I am not sure why.  I guess to many the idea of a “normal” bride/woman wearing a diaper in a wedding dress is a nice thought.  I won’t say it hasn’t been done before but by no means do I think it is commonplace or even considered.  I would say probably less than .2% of all brides wear a diaper.  Sure, you may here anecdotes about so and so doing it but I assure you these are extremely isolated.  Here is my reasoning:

As a woman, on your wedding day you want to feel sexy, beautiful, elegant, and clean.  The last thing a woman wants to do is put on a diaper which is normally associated with probably not being sexy or beautiful or elegant and probably not clean to the average person.  I think even if a bride was concerned about going to the bathroom that they would rather not put on a diaper and risk something like that.

Personally, I will be wearing a diaper on my wedding day but my wedding dress allows for a sense of discreetness.  I will also be wearing a very thin and probably cloth diaper because at least on my wedding day I do not want to crinkle or for it to be that obvious that I wear diapers.  Any other day I could care less, but on my wedding day I would rather people that I may not know super well or know me be more focused on “is that a diaper?” then just on me and how I look.  I am very traditional and I want to feel pretty and beautiful and not like everyone is gawking at me that doesn’t know me.

I think bridal diapers are probably used only for special circumstances and I mean really special circumstances.  Unless the bride is incontinent or quirky then I doubt she will risk something like that on her wedding day just for the simple fact that she wants everything to be perfect and wants to feel beautiful, sexy, elegant, etc. Which, a diaper is not the first thing the average person associates with those things.  Just my thoughts!.

    Hey there Adrian. As for Bride the choice of wearing any diaper would be there choice alone for how she wants to feel on her big day. The same could go for a Groom. As high price as wedding dresses go and tux rentals diapers on a wedding day could make sense to protect those clothes from the stresses of that day.

    I’m sure a choice for wearing a diaper mainly would come down say to mainly medical incontinent as to say non-medical and or maybe practical within reason and the mindset of the person making the choice to wear for there own reason.

    Besides any of us in the AB/DL world might for say make that choice a bit easier than those not of the AB/DL world. Concealment of wearing your diaper of choice that we all know how to do when needed vs say anyone with no experince with adult diapers in terms of how they can be connected with Medical vs non medical all the way to the AB/DL world.

    Also not knowing, and some planning for would say heading off a lot bad jokes that could be made with diapers. Needless to say, this is a nice topic for anyone that has a wedding coming up and it might help them to make that choice of to wear or not to wear when it comes to diapers. Adult Diapers that is. Have a nice day and keep up the great topics.

    I did some research on it if they do exist.
    I keep hearing blogs of how they do. How they do.
    But a search engine found nothing of places that sell it.
    eBay or Amazon doesn’t sell it.
    I think this thing just does not exist.

    Great post. I agree that a normal person would be to close minded or freaked out about wearing and useing them. Thanks for a great site and all the information you provide.

    Would this be a hint of some kind? 😉

    I can see where they could be an advantage if you are a “nervous Nellie”. Lots of people have to go quite often when stressful things happen. It could certainly keep the ceremony running smoothly.

    Besides, if they’re hidden who cares!!!??

    Well it happens, not if you are wearing a mini skirt als a wedding dress but alot of wedding dresses take ages to get into and out of, so going to the toilet is just not an option, You will see that later at the night the wedding dress is swapped for something casual that is easyer to wear, but yes immagine sitting in church fopr hours and a reception after that in a dress that does’nt let you go to the bathroom, that is an accident waiting to happen.

    But most time their husbands do not even know that they wear diapers unde rthat wedding dress so ssssst do’nt tell them….

    I wore a diaper at my wedding, but we eloped and my dress was huge, so it was not noticeable to anyone but the groom.

    OMG POST SO GOD DANG PICTURES, but i would wear one if i was incontient, because wouldn’t it suck if u peed ur self and the diaper leaked in front of everyone?
    Or.. You may now kiss the bride” and u start feeling a yellow warm sensation against your butt? How romantic 🙂

    For incontinent people like me and Adrian they will be a must. But say the wedding gown is so complex and hard to put on and the ceremony is long–a thin diaper or pull up may be useful. Or if thee bride is having a heavy period, pads may not suffice.

    Hi Adrian, and everyone else, long time no see.

    When I saw this post I HAD to respond. Many of you probably don’t know, but not very long ago I started a business called “bridal-diapers”, and it was amazingly successful. Of course I speak in past tense because I had to close down after the first season when my supplier went out of business and it was no longer feasible to keep going.

    I got the idea for bridal-diapers when I drove limousines for a living. So often during the thousands of weddings I drove for did I hear the same exact and rather unlikely comments coming from the girls in the back. Things like, “god I wish there was a bathroom”, “There’s no bathrooms anywhere, we should have just worn a diapers”, “I’m so nervous, I wish I had a diaper or something”… The point is that they were all saying the same thing for different reasons. Some brides/bridesmaids were so nervous that I’ve even helped clean up a few accidents, drying a dress with the heater vents in the dashboard. Others were partying a little too hard and with no bathrooms in sight, say at the pictures location, a diaper would have seemed to be the next best thing.

    So one wedding I did the bride actually did wear a diaper under her dress. I overheard her talking about it to the girls. She was just being sure she didn’t experience any nervous leaks as she put it. That’s when the idea for bridal-diapers popped in my head. This idea paired with my vast knowledge of diapers, allowed me to start the business up almost immediately.

    I went online to where I knew I could get bulk shipments of Attends 10 slips for very little money. I chose this diaper because of it’s slim profile, ease of use and level of dryness feeling after being wet. So I placed a large order of various sizes and started calling different bridal dress shops around the country. And I’ll tell you in all truths how ecstatic the majority of these shops were that someone finally thought of it. I sold out of diapers, hundreds of orders within months. One shop even started producing a “diaper cover” of sorts that would cover up the diaper so the bride wearing it might feel less embarrassed if she had used the diaper and one of her helpers might have potentially seen it helping her out of her dress and so on.

    The idea made perfect sense for many reasons, but I marketed them to brides whose dresses were too big and bulky to get into a restroom easily enough, or out of quickly enough. This made sense to most people and the fact that I sold over two thousand diapers in just a matter of months to people who in any other circumstance wouldn’t even think of a diaper as something they would wear. Obviously I did catch some scrutiny from certain shops, as not everyone was open to the idea, but for the vast majority it made sense.

    I’d do it again in a heartbeat if I could. But with international shipping costs being what they are, and the US dollar being weak, it’s just not profitable any longer, unless I used a domestic brand, but none of the US made diapers are discreet and thin enough (while still being outstandingly absorbent) or simple enough to put on like the Attends slips were. So yes, bridal diapers was a craze about 2 years ago, and from the rumblings I hear every so often, brides still want to get their hands on my diapers.

    I’m still single but i can imagine my wedding day with the biggest fusss of not havingto have a wetting accident.

    Cant say Ive ever really seen her, but given what Ive seen/read, I dont think I could concentrate on a her diaper if she wore it.

    Suspect most folks would agree with me. At the time, mood, and atmosphere, I would only be looking at her in her dress…and not be thinking of the diaper inside. For all I know, my wife and every other girl wore one during thier marriage. May or may not have happened….. I don’t care.

    I bet she is beautiful in her dress. And nobody cares regardless.

    I heard this story on NPR’s “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.” It was the section where the guests read three different stories, two of which are false (and the caller has to pick the true one). Anyway, the first sentence is usually a clever teaser, and for this story the first line was “Seems that before saying ‘I do,’ more and more brides are saying ‘Depends.'”

    Turns out this was the true one.

    maybe they like to wet and mess them while getting married. ???????

    I have heard this rumor several times and think it is plasable. One thing that has not been mentioned is that little kids (both boys and girls) may want to think about putting them in a diaper. Little ones are nervous and a lot of time the wedding takes a long time. In the case of little girls they are wearing a dress that they are not used to and it is not easy to get the dress up high enough to keep it out of the toilet. A disposibal diaper would be ideal for this situation. The diapers are now big enought for kids so there should be no problem in finding them. If the bride is also wearing one it would easier to get the little one to wear one also.

    I was at a wedding this past summer and the bride was 20 and she had a disposable diaper with lace trimmed plastic pants over it under her big poofy gown and then to my surprise,i saw her three flower girls who were 11,12 and 13 all had cloth diapers with ruffled plastic pants over them under their poofy dresses also! I dont know if any of the bridesmaid had diapers or not.
