Wedding season has begun! You have your something old, something new, your something borrowed, and something blue. However, don’t forget those lingerie necessities for the magical day, night, and honeymoon. Here at Sweetest Sin Boutique, we specialize in custom bra fittings and a personalized shopping experience. We carry everything you need for your special day, and more. To help make your planning seamless, we’ve put together a little guide to wedding day (and beyond) necessities.
Let’s start with the wedding day. There are a couple under-the-dress necessities every bride needs before walking down the aisle.
First, the garter. Worn under the dress, the garter can be fun and flirty or romantic and delicate. If you’re unsure, we would suggest going with the latter. Also worn under the dress is the optional corset, depending on the style of your dress. Formfitting and structured, we have corsets that will help your dress fit perfectly while maintaining your body’s beautiful shape. And don’t forget Spanx! If your dress is formfitting or has a delicate fabric that needs a smooth silhouette to lay on, a pair of Spanx will be your best friend!
Expert Tip: make sure to keep everything in place with some double sided tape! The last thing you want is an awkward bra strap popping out or the v-neck of your dress moving around while everyone stares at you.
After dancing the night away with your wedding guests, enjoy the first night of the rest of your lives together with something special. Even if you don’t love the tradition where the groom removes the wedding garter in front of everyone, we recommend wearing a pretty garter and saving it as a romantic keepsake for yourself and your husband.
The wedding night calls for sexy, yet elegant attire that is very special. Go for silks and lace. These fabrics scream femininity and elegance, while bringing out your sensual nature. Have one of your bridesmaids pack
you an overnight bag before you leave. Discuss the items beforehand, and arrive with nothing to worry about.
While you can obviously pick any type of lingerie that is your style, the wedding night can also be a great time to stick with the traditional. We love two piece peignoir sets to set the scene for a romantic evening. Whether you go with a long gown and robe, or a short set you’ll feel beautiful and amazing.
Last, but certainly not least, the honeymoon. Whether you are staying close to home or jet setting away, find pieces that will make
you feel sexy and comfortable for the entire time.
Your first must-have item is the robe. The robe should be elegant, beautiful, and ethereal. Look pristine, perfect, while the light shines to show your silhouette. When you’re lounging around drinking mimosas and eating chocolate covered strawberries, do it in a teddy or a silk 2 piece. These lingerie pieces are simple and subtle, yet flirty and elegant. They are also incredibly comfortable with the silky fabric resting effortlessly on your skin.
Remember that honeymoon lingerie doesn’t have to be all about sexy bra and panty sets. We love classic and comfy pajamas for lounging and elegant loungewear sets that can go from your bedroom to sunbathing poolside. Make sure you pack enough variety that you can enjoy a different set for each day of your honeymoon.
You have been planning your wedding for months, maybe even years. Let us provide you with some of your wedding necessities. If you want help with your planning, we offer an in-store bridal registry so your shower guests can buy you exactly what you want! But most of all, the best advice we could give you is to soak in the moment.
