If you’re getting married in 2021, you might be thinking about putting the final touches on your preparations. Before your final dress fitting, you need to think about your bridal lingerie. Bridal lingerie is a small but significant part of your big day.
It’s something that you’ll only share with your partner. So while your wedding dress might steal the show, your bridal lingerie could be the most memorable aspect for your partner.
Choosing your wedding lingerie typically starts after you’ve chosen your dress. Your dress is likely to dictate the style of wedding lingerie you can wear, so it’s worth getting this settled before you choose what goes underneath.
In this Pleasure Delights guide, we will explore some of the most popular wedding lingerie styles, things you need to think about, and steps to take to ensure you are ready for your big day.
Your wedding lingerie should be a departure from what you would normally wear. It’s a special day, and you want your wedding lingerie to reflect this.
Your bra might not match your panties under normal circumstances, but this is a special day. With so many knicker styles available, it can be difficult to know what is best for you. These are some of the most popular bridal knickers styles.
Your dress might decide your lingerie for you. Some brides will opt for functional lingerie on their wedding day and then slip into something more sexy on their wedding night.
If your wedding lingerie needs to be functional, then consider having a spare set that you can slip into in the evening. Pair this with a silk robe to complete the look. You could even choose a white lace teddy instead of lingerie if this will make you feel more confident.
Many brides choose to wear white as it’s more traditional, but there is nothing to say you can’t choose any colour under the sun. Ivory is also a popular colour for bridal lingerie, or you could wear blue to make it your “something blue”.
Some brides may choose a bright and vibrant colour as this will be a surprise to your partner. While you may be thinking about how to surprise and impress your new spouse, remember that you should always be comfortable and confident in whatever you choose to wear.
If you’re going to opt for a bright or dark colour, make sure you check that it isn’t visible through your gown. You don’t want to ruin your wedding photos with a flash of hot pink bra strap.
You want your wedding lingerie to be perfectly fitted and comfortable. If you are planning to lose weight before your wedding, you should purchase your wedding lingerie as close to the big day as possible. The month before would be ideal.
Your lingerie needs to fit perfectly, but it also needs to fit under your dress. If you are having your dress adjusted before the big day, your seamstress may recommend wearing the lingerie you are planning to wear as this could change your silhouette dramatically.
Some brides opt for comfortable lingerie during the day and then slip into something a little more daring and seductive in the evening. Your wedding day is going to be a long day and you’ll want to be comfortable every step of the way.
This is one reason you might choose functional and comfortable lingerie for the ceremony and reception and then slip into something a little more seductive later in the evening.
This will give you more freedom to choose a lingerie style that might not work well under a dress, but that stands alone as your wedding night outfit. Remember to pair evening lingerie with a silk robe to complete the look.
