We understand planning a wedding is hectic. There are a million different things to think about – photographers, menus, and gowns, just to name a few – and lingerie is no exception here. Luckily, we love lingerie and have some suggestions for all the moments when you will be relying on your lingerie to make you look your best!
1. Boudoir Photo Shoot
Many brides love to give their fiancé a special gift of photos from their boudoir shoot, and this is a very exciting time to wear lingerie. Basically anything goes in this part of your wedding season – have fun with it! Wear pieces that show off your favourite features, from the silk chemise to your fiancé’s go-to button down shirt. For a guide on how to shop for your boudoir shoot, check out this post, and be sure to ask your photographer for recommendations, as they will probably have some great ideas for you!
2. Rehearsal Dinner
You will most likely be all dolled up in a cute and fun dress this evening, trying to forget all the stresses of the coming wedding day. This is a great opportunity to wear lingerie that makes you look like you’re calm, cool and collected. I suggest opting for a slip underneath your dress to make you look sleek, smooth, and to minimize lines under your garment. And remember, just because it is a slip doesn’t mean it has to be boring. There are so many options here, but as a soon-to-be bride I highly suggest going for classic white silk with lace trim to keep up that bridal theme.
3. Wedding Day
The lingerie you wear on your wedding day will depend on the gown you have chosen. Overall, something supportive, strapless, and low-back is what many brides are looking for underneath that princess gown. I suggest going for a seamless, shaping bustier paired with some shaping underwear if you are looking for firm structure. If you’ve purchased a gown that fits you like a glove and don’t need structure, splurge on a pair of delicate, lacy white or skin-toned knickers to treat yourself.
Your honeymoon is another great way to pamper yourself with lingerie. I recommend going all-out with this, and treating yourself to everything from a soft new white negligée for sleeping in to an ultra-sexy playsuit – and of course you’ll need all new bra and panty sets to show off to your partner! Keep in mind your honeymoon destination while shopping, and opt for lingerie that suits the location, for many that means keeping it light and cool while they relax in a hot and sunny location.
Organizing a wedding can be hectic, but hopefully these tips have answered a few of your questions and given you a ton of inspiration for your wedding lingerie collection.
