Your wedding dress is a huge part of your big day. So much so, that it’s the first thing many brides run out to purchase as soon as they’re engaged. They call their parents, friends and family to announce their engagement, then they hang up the phone and start looking at dress magazines. No worries, this is completely normal.
Of course there happens to be one aspect of wedding dress shopping that many brides tend to shove to the side until the last minute, and that would be what they are planning on wearing under the wedding dress. So if you’ve just purchased your wedding dress, here are a few tips to making sure your wedding lingerie is just as perfect as the rest of your day:
1.) Make sure the style goes with your dress. Just as there are countless styles of wedding dresses, there are also countless styles of wedding lingerie, and you want to make sure the two match. If your dress is strapless your lingerie should be strapless, if your dress is fitted, your lingerie should be smooth and seamless, and if your dress has any sheer aspects to it, your lingerie needs to be appropriately placed where any words or embellishments won’t be showing up for all to see.
2.) Make sure your lingerie is comfortable. There’s nothing like a 12-hour day of awkwardly tugging at your underthings. You’re going to be walking around greeting guests, dancing, eating and among other things, getting married. The last thing you want is to be distracted by uncomfortable tugging, rubbing or pinching. So after you buy your dress and your lingerie, wear it around the house for a full day. This should give you an idea of what your wedding day will feel like. Plus, this will give you plenty of time to take it to a tailor so they can have a chance to fix any uncomfortable areas.
3.) Make sure it fits your personality. This may seem like a silly point to include, but it’s important. Just as with any article of clothing, your lingerie says something about who you are. If your fiancé loves you for your sense of humor, a cheeky (haha “cheeky”…get it?) or clever phrase written across your undies might be just the fit. If you’re more of a bling girl, take a look at an embellished set. Either way, make sure your lingerie is just as much of a reflection of your personality as your wedding dress.
4.) Make sure it’s sexy. We could’ve skipped over this point entirely, but let’s be honest: lingerie has one very, very specific purpose. Sure it’s important that it creates the perfect shape underneath your dress, but that’s not exactly why brides purchase wedding lingerie. They purchase wedding lingerie because they want it to be seen and then removed in the frenzy that can only occur after someone has gotten married. And with the countless cut and fabric options, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to find the set that makes you feel that the amazing woman you already are.
