Eve Paterson has gone viral after pictures of the 24-year-old and her bridesmaids wearing the white and green outfits on her wedding day were shared thousands of times on Twitter. “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,” Eve, who lives in Cambridge, told the Press Association. “These dresses proved that it’s possible to look beautiful, feel amazing, and be practically equipped for the day, and I hope it encourages other brands to up their game on this as well.” The post to Twitter, by bridesmaid Nell Goddard, has been met with praise by many. “Pockets and belts.
