Planning a wedding is such an exciting experience. All the little details that you and your husband-to-be choose have meaning to you both, and make the day something to cherish for the rest of your lives. One of those little details is choosing the perfect wedding night lingerie.

There are so many varieties of bridal lingerie to choose from. While white is the traditional choice, if you prefer a more colorful set that’s definitely okay too.

A few things to consider before making your purchase are body shape, style, details, fabric, and, finally, budget. If you follow these easy tips, your purchase will be made with the least amount of hassle.


Body Shape

Whether you have a curvaceous figure or slender build, it’s important to think about what looks best on your body type.

Many women exercise a lot leading up to their big day, in this case it’s best to wait until a week or two before the wedding to purchase your lingerie. If you buy it too far in advance, your body may change size or shape, and your beautiful wedding night unmentionables will need to be returned.



Thongs, babydolls, teddies, and negligees … with so many styles to choose from, it can be a daunting process. Aside from keeping your body shape in mind, choosing something that is comfortable should factor into your decision. There is nothing worse than spending six hours or more in uncomfortable underwear, especially on a day that you are supposed to be having the time of your life.

Choose your lingerie after your pick out your dress. Why? You will want to choose something that won’t be noticed under your dress. Whether you are wearing a snug fitting dress, strapless, or backless, you will want your underwear to appear seamless.

Another thing to keep in mind with style is to choose something both you and your husband-to-be will love. Do you have any special “inside jokes” or things you love to do together? There is likely a unique style that will both suit you and knock his socks off.


Details and Fabric

Lingerie is so much fun because of the little details that differ between styles. The same goes for choosing your wedding underwear. It is all a matter of taste, whether to go simple or elaborate. Just keep in mind the little details can make a big impact.

Lace is sexy, satin is elegant, silk is rich, and cotton is sweet. All of these can be comfortable and come in many different styles. Lingerie makes women feel sexy and confident, so choose something that you love, and it’s sure to be a confidence booster on your big day.


As you create your wedding budget, items add up fast, and you might feel like saving money on a few items. Wedding lingerie is not one of them, as you truly get what you pay for in underwear. If you want something that will last, spend the extra money here.

No matter what fabric, style, or color you choose, just remember that this is one of the most incredible nights of your life and create amazing memories with your new husband that will make you smile even 20 years later.
