Choosing the Perfect Wedding Night & Honeymoon Lingerie
Uncover our ultimate tips for finding your perfect wedding night lingerie - or explore all of our Bridal Lingerie Guides for more help in finding your dream set!
You’ve planned the perfect day, celebrated your love with all of your friends and family, and now it’s time to collapse in a champagne-fuelled daze and not wake up until it’s time for room service breakfast.
However, for those brides looking to not only find the perfect wedding dress undergarments, but a decadently luxurious outfit for the wedding night as well, we’ve got you covered – and all of these choices work beautifully for honeymoon lingerie as well.
1. THERE’S SO MANY MORE WAYS TO WEAR WHITE!
White, cream and ivory are traditional wedding colours to many, and the perfect way to choose something that really feels “bridal" with your lingerie. Unlike the lingerie you wear for the day itself, wedding night and honeymoon attire doesn’t have any of the constraints of needing to fit seamlessly beneath a gown, so there’s so much scope for styles you might not pick otherwise.
For an unusual “something blue”, the Juliette Hazel set features subtle teal outlines on the metallic golden feather design, paired with caramel silk, so you can still have a nod to tradition, whilst notching up the golden glamour.
The Alycya includes an ivory silk quarter cup bra with a separate adjustable strapping harness to create multiple different looks with a more contemporary bondage-chic edge, as well as stockings crafted entirely from stretch Leavers lace. If you’ve ever wanted to match your lingerie look right from your head to your toes, this is the set for you!
Vintage inspired brides can channel their inner Hollywood star of bygone times in the Eleanor Almond, with a silk lined full cup bra adorned in delicate ivory lace and retro silk tap pants, alongside a vintage style garter belt and seamed stockings.
2. FOR SOMETHING MORE REVEALING, TRY AN OPEN CUP BRA
Quarter cup or open cup bras are a great choice for bridal boudoir lingerie, even for fuller cup sizes, for something a little more seductive than other lingerie shapes. The open cup is a much more revealing style, but can be dressed up with the coordinating pasties, or even a set of tassles for a more playful burlesque look.
Our quarter cup styles are all designed in collaboration with the award winning indie designer Karolina Laskowska, and all have adjustable strapping backs to create the perfect fit.
Try the Alycya for classic ivory, or the Aurora Black or Aurora Red for something more darkly decadent. Matching separate chokers and harnesses with all of the ranges mean they can be worn several ways, and the Aurora collection includes button back ouvert briefs to be unbuttoned by your beloved.
3. NOTCH UP THE GLAMOUR IN ROBES THAT FEEL AS GOOD AS THEY LOOK
Your wedding is the ideal time to go for all-out decadence – adding an ultra opulent robe to already beautiful lingerie will take your whole look to the next level. Choose textures that feel divine against your skin, to make you feel exquisite from the inside out. The Serena Ivory and Juliette Hazel ostrich feather boudoir dressing gowns are both crafted from sheer caramel tulle to reveal the lingerie beneath, with luxuriously thick feather trims to not only bring out your inner glamazon, but to feel deliciously soft and floaty whenever you wear them as well.
The Cassiopeia beaded robe, in either Gold or Silver, is made from hundreds of hand beaded strands of glass and pearl beads, visually evoking old time 1920’s glamour whilst swaying hypnotically with every movement. Pair it with metallic lingerie such as the Juliette, Juliette Hazel, Callista or Persephone, then add it as a cover up to an evening dress for dinners out long after your wedding has passed, bringing back special memories every time.
4. BE AS COLOURFUL AS YOU WANT TO BE
If ivory and cream aren’t for you, just remember that it’s your wedding – if you don’t actually want to wear those shades, there’s nothing stopping you from picking a whole new colour palette!
A wedding is the perfect excuse to really treat yourself to something luxurious that you might not normally choose, so why not try something really extravagant in your personal favourite shades, whether it’s pretty pastels, like the Eleanor Lilac, shimmering red and metallic like the Juliette, or even classic black but with a more boudoir twist, like the Demetria.
