Choosing the perfect wedding night and honeymoon lingerie
You’ve planed 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.
You don’t have to have ivory if you don’t want to
Ivory and cream with a hint of blue are traditional wedding colours in many cultures, but it’s your wedding – if you don’t actually want to have 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.
But if you do, there’s lots of ways to wear it
As these pieces aren’t particularly required to work under a wedding dress, or even under any type of clothing, there’s so much scope for styles you might not pick otherwise. If you’d still like a nod to traditional ivory tones, 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!
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.
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.
For something more revealing, try a quarter cup bra
Quarter 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.
Bridal corsets are ideal for a wedding night as well as day
Some brides choose corsets as part of their wedding dress itself, but they’re also beautiful as something extra special to pack for your honeymoon lingerie wardrobe or as a special outfit change on the wedding night itself. The Eira underbust bridal corset is a limited edition style, handpainted in exqusite watercolour shades of blue with hand cut and appliquéd lace, ensuring each piece is entirely unique. Matching handpainted silk and lace bridal knickers could pair with either an Alycya quarter cup bra, or even just pearl pasties and a harness for a more revealing look. If you prefer to wear it with structured lingerie, the Serena Ivory has both a classic and longline bra shape that will coordinate beautifully with the blue and ivory tones. If you’re longing for an overbust bridal corset instead, many independent corsetieres will create something specially for you, both to your exact measurements and with your design in mind.
Notch up the glamour with an extra special robe, in textures that feel just as beautiful 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.
