5 Tips for Choosing Wedding Day Lingerie
When you envision your walk down the aisle, you’re probably more focused on the dress than what’s underneath it. A wedding is a romantic undertaking, and your new spouse is going to be just as eager to see what’s under your dress. Wedding day lingerie should be something special. Here are five tips for choosing wedding day Lingerie to bear in mind when making your selections.
You’re going to be wearing your wedding day getup for a long and exhausting day, so don’t buy a bra that pinches, underwear to small that leave you unable to breathe, or stockings that are constantly falling down. Remember: comfortable lingerie doesn’t have to be ugly; it just has to fit!
Pick the Right Hue
Many brides make the mistake of pairing a white bra with a white gown. If your gown is thick, this works well. But if you’re worried about your bra showing through, you need to go with a nude tone, not white.
Try it With Your Gown
It might seem obvious, but in the hustle and bustle of wedding planning, it’s easy to forget why you’re purchasing all this lingerie! Give your entire getup a prenuptial test run by trying your lingerie with your wedding gown at your dress fitting. Don’t forget to walk around, bend, jump, and dance, since some lingerie issues only reveal themselves when you’re active.
Don’t Forget Your Garter
The days of garters used to hold up stockings are a thing of the past, but the wedding day garter is still a must-have tradition. It’s also a super-easy way to ensure you’re wearing your “something blue.” Pick a garter you love, and make sure it will be easy for your honey to take it off during the reception.
Consider a Wardrobe Change
Stuck wearing a plain flesh colour strapless bra, or shapewear? There’s no law that says what you’re wearing under your gown is what your spouse has to see the night of the wedding! If your lingerie is practical but ugly, consider making a last-minute wardrobe change just before you leave your reception. Your love will never know you were wearing something less-than-gorgeous all day.
