The internet has gone into meltdown over a bridal gown featuring an ingenious design detail.

Esther Kezia Thorpe, from London, tweeted a snap of her friend wearing a voluminous Suzanne Neville frock featuring pockets at her wedding reception over the weekend.

She wrote: 'STOP EVERYTHING so one of my friends got married yesterday and she had POCKETS ON HER WEDDING DRESS which is just the best thing I have ever seen.' 

The picture quickly racked up thousands of likes, comments and re-tweets with brides going wild for the thoroughly modern design.

Traditionally, bridal gowns do not have pockets - forcing the wearer to either carry a small clutch bag, or entrust her bridesmaids with keeping her phone, lipstick and other essentials. 

The strapless ivory number, which the unnamed bride teamed with a veil, featured two pockets large enough to keep a phone and some essential makeup in - but it was the bride's casual posture that sent Twitter wild.

One social media user wrote: 'Great idea. Pockets are much [more] necessary for females.'

Another enthused: 'I would literally be screaming as I walk down the aisle, "IT HAS POCKETS."'

Some male users appeared baffled as to what brides could need pockets for; to which Esther replied, 'Snacks, tissues, lipstick.' 

According to The Times, Suzanne Neville is just one of a growing number of designers now incorporating pockets into their bridal designs.

They include Mirror Mirror Couture and Sassi Holford, who told the newspaper: 'Customers get very excited when they try on a dress with pockets. It tends to make them feel more comfortable.'
