Here comes the fun part. We don’t need to get into the details, but we will assist you in dressing (ahem, undressing) for the occasion! Bridal lingerie is one of the more exciting shopping experiences of the whole wedding prep process because this one is just for the two of you. No guests to impress, no well-meaning family members to think about — this one’s ALL you, babe. But wedding lingerie for the night of and/or your honeymoon is a bridal staple that doesn’t always come easy. How do you choose?
We’re here to help, of course. We rounded up the absolute best bridal lingerie sets for all body types, in both traditional and modern styles. But before you scroll on and start shopping, let’s clear up a few FAQs.
How do you choose your bridal lingerie?
First and most importantly, it has to make you feel beautiful. No need to fit into some standard idea of wedding night lingerie. Choose something that makes you feel more like yourself. Second, get the fit right. All the websites below offer fit guides. Follow them! Ask a friend or bridesmaids to help you with your measurements. And third, when you’re looking at color options, choose a color that complements your skin tone. This brings us to another commonly asked question…
Does wedding lingerie have to be white?
No, wedding night lingerie does not have to be white! White lingerie may be traditional (white symbolizes purity) but if you’re breaking tradition in your wedding planning, you can certainly break tradition for the wedding night. While we love white and found some stunning white lingerie sets, white doesn’t always complement all skin tones. Choose a color that makes you feel beautiful! To help you out, almost all of the sets below come in multiple colors or patterns.
Should I wear bridal lingerie under my wedding dress?
You don’t need to wear bridal lingerie under your wedding dress unless you want to. If your lingerie look happens to fit under your wedding dress, then go for it! But chances are, you won’t want your undergarments to show under your dress — and the wedding night lingerie just might have a few embellishments you can’t hide.
Now then, let’s get to shopping!
