After the caterers have been hired, the perfect flowers selected, the venue confirmed, and the honeymoon getaway car prepped with the engine running, one consideration sparkles beyond all others: the wedding night. On certain occasions, selecting lingerie means considering both the perfect fit and the visual appeal of lingerie, and this is certainly one of those occasions. To help you discover the ideal lingerie for your wedding night, tailored to reflect your style, comfort, and to put you in mind of wedding night lingerie as single-mindedly as your beloved groom is sure to be, we’ve compiled a helpful guide to selecting the perfect ensemble for the occasion.
Set the Mood
While you may have rightly outsourced a number of aesthetic considerations for the wedding (after all, who has time to worry about tea light colors?), once the gloves (and the dress) come off, it’s your moment to select the exact visual impression you want to make. This element should be unique to you, reflecting the mood and impression you hope to achieve. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind:
Consider the styling of the wedding dress. There’s a massive difference between a rustic ceremony set in a field, a Hawaiian beach wedding, and a European fairytale wedding set in a 16th century cathedral. Needless to say, a beaded corset has no place beneath a sheer sundress. For the best results, feel free to experiment with style pairings, but aim for a degree of consistency between your underwear and outerwear.
Consider the setting. Admit it: you’ve been picturing your wedding gown against the background of your chosen venue for months. It would be remiss not to extend the same courtesy to your wedding night venue, and your wedding night attire. If you’re plotting to hole up in a rustic cabin or spend the night in a tropical treehouse, dress accordingly. Likewise, more dramatic pieces such as the Eyelash Lace Corset and Panty Set from iCollection are ideal for an upscale hotel getaway.
As your bridesmaids are sure to agree, you definitely dodged a bullet by skipping the heavily beaded, boning-reinforced mermaid gown, but what about what’s underneath it all? Plan to avoid panty lines, create a seamless visual appeal, and ensure your own comfort with underthings that combine simplicity and allure, such as the Classic Satin Thong Panty from Be Wicked.
Don’t Forget to Wear Something Blue
While white is the clear forerunner among wedding night lingerie colors, the contemporary bride will do well to embrace the unexpected. Surprise your groom and create a striking impression in midnight, sky, or ocean blue.
- The Navy Bra and Lowrise Panty Set from Be Wicked is as dramatically deep and as bold as you are. Etched in black lace and accented with sheer black mesh, this ensemble is perfect for edgier brides who have worn enough white for one day.
- Another perfect alternative from Be Wicked, the Aqua Bra and Panty Set features vibrant blue satin and glamorous black lace: the perfect offset to any wedding gown.
- Conjure the mood of a first-class Caribbean honeymoon with the blue curacao Williamsburg Teddy from Maison Close. With elegant detailing and luxurious fabrics, this piece is certain to deliver an incomparable visual impact and unparalleled comfort.
