The most important decision for any bride is the wedding dress. This decision takes up the most time and causes the most panic. After all, while some will admire the flowers, and some will see the shoes, everyone will see the dress. The dress will have everyone stopping in admiration to see the beauty of the bride and it will be something that will be in a picture on your wall forevermore. Choosing the right dress is key. Yet there are other decisions that matter too. One thing that is very difficult to get right is the underwear. Choosing the right underwear is key to ensure every part of the wedding goes to plan and that you feel comfortable and confident.
The first thing to do is to prioritize the dress itself and realize that the underwear decision needs to be made after the dress is decided upon. While you may have a dream dress in mind and a dream undergarment in mind, the two rarely go together. Choose your dress first and then find some underwear that will work with the dress. This may influence and even decide the style, color, and size of the undergarment you choose.
This doesn’t mean that you need to feel restricted. You could purchase multiple undergarments. We have seen plenty of brides especially in recent times who have purchased three undergarments. One for the morning when they are getting ready. One to wear during the ceremony and after-party and one to change into when you are alone with your partner.
For the start of the day, it is important that you have something comfortable and classy. A lot of designers and now pushing lingerie that could conceivably double as clothes. One of our favorite pieces is a silk trousers and top set that is full of style, flow, and comfort. Something like this has a timeless beauty that you will likely wear for a very long time. It is also the perfect outfit to relax and do your makeup in. With people coming in and out of the room you want something comfortable that you don’t feel the need to cover up every time the hairdresser enters the room.
During the wedding, there is one word that matters. Support. Comfort is still a key concern but you need to ensure that everything is sitting where you want it for the wedding day. You will be standing in front of a large crowd, likely wearing white, so anything dark is pretty much ruled out. Depending on your dress you may need something that supports your breasts or helps you hold your stomach in. Whatever it is you need to be practical with your decision and don’t get swept away with a nice design for this pivotal purchase.
Finally, there is the underwear that you will wear for the wedding night. Many will have you believe that this needs to be something incredibly sexy as a treat for the man you are marrying but this just isn’t the case anymore (perhaps it never was). The reality is that after the wedding ceremonies you will both be incredibly tired and it is increasingly common for the bride and groom to be absolutely shattered tired and want to go straight to sleep. Don’t feel the need to put pressure on yourself or the groom with a sexy purchase. Choose something that is a little sexy, a little comfortable, and overall makes you feel confident.
With these three purchases, you are not only ensuring that you are fully equipped for whatever the wedding throws at you but also that you have acquired three beautiful pieces that you can use again and again. The idea that a wedding is all about wearing once and throwing away has got to stop. Purchase underwear that you love and will wear forever.
