If you don’t know where to start or are looking for some of our fabulous recommendations keep reading to learn more.

Starting off the day

Beginning your wedding day in lingerie can be just the way to set the tone for the rest of your day. Start off the day feeling pampered, many brides enjoy indulging in a bit of pampering before their wedding and wearing luxurious lingerie can be a part of that. It can make you feel special and help you relax before the excitement of the day begins. Your wedding day is a special occasion, and wearing special lingerie in the morning can be a way to create a lasting memory. You can take photos or simply enjoy the moment as you get ready. Even match with your bridesmaids and create lasting memories with some of the most important people in your life. Pieces like Chemises, teddies, and babydolls are a perfect match with the getting ready portion of the day. If you are looking for some inspiration look at our Champagne Spot Satin Pyjama Set or Lola Satin Babydoll and Thong Set. These sets are perfect for any occasion or event but can add just an extra something to the hours leading up to the big event.

Under the dress

Choosing what to wear under your dress can be a stressful and important part of completing your look for your big day. We suggest looking for your dress and lingerie at the same time to ensure that the two pieces look good together and make you feel as comfortable and confident as possible. Traditionally undergarments are white, nude, or maybe your something blue, but that doesn’t mean that’s all you should be limited to. Did you know that red is one of the more invisible colours under white? With there being so many different styles of lingerie, the options are endless and testing your options is the best bet. A tighter style dress will need lingerie with clean lines and something that won’t show up on the outside of the dress. If you’re going with a lower-cut dress, something with a quarter or half cup might be a good option. You can keep the support that a bra would offer but it’ll be easier to hide. Pieces like our Lila Lilac Quarter Cup Bra or anything in our open cup collection could be perfect for this exact issue. If you have more room around to play with and are looking for something a little spicier to wear under your dress, Basques & Corsets might be a good option to lean to. Take our Angela Black Strappy Cut Out Basque Set or Ariana Vanilla Lace Body, for example, both are fabulous for a more untraditional look.
The tradition of the garter has been around for centuries and whether or not you follow the tradition and how closely is completely you, your personal style, and comfortability. Traditionally the garter toss was supposed to symbolise which bachelor would get married next, similar to the throwing of the bouquet. Even if you opt to remove this tradition from your day, many women still wear one to complete their lingerie look. A garter used to be a singular strap of ruffle elastic that would sit right above the knee to hold up stockings. As time has gone by our garters have evolved and something like a garter belt or suspenders can tie everything together, giving you the ultimate matching set.

After hours

When you’re all done entertaining your guests and it’s time for a little one-on-one time, lingerie can be the perfect way to start off the night or your honeymoon. This is the time to really express yourself and the options are absolutely endless. We don’t have much to say because when it's all said and done it's important for you to feel your very best. A couple of our favourite pieces are our collection of Maisie Sets or the Eddie Sets. But as we said, the world is your oyster when it comes to after-hours.
