Many brides underestimate how big a task finding the perfect wedding lingerie for their big day will be, and as a result leave it until the last few weeks before the wedding itself (like me). So now my searching has well and truly started.
I’ve been tempted by a number of non-surgical enhancements to look my best on our wedding day, but I don’t like the thought of waking up as husband and wife and finding the bedside table piled high with synthetic hair, a couple of chicken fillets and some false eyelashes. Married friends have told me that this will be least of our concerns on the morning after our wedding. Judging from their performances, we’re most likely to wake-up fully clothed, with a life-changing hangover and do you know what – thats okay!
This realisation has forced me to reconsider wedding lingerie. I liked the idea of treating myself to an ultra-luxurious, ornate set, but is it really worth it?
Rigby & Peller also had some useful advice. They recommended against lingerie sets that are heavily lacy or embroidered, as they could show through your dress. Also, they suggest considering two sets for your big day, one for the evening and one set to help you get the perfect fit from your wedding dress.
Now if you don’t want to break the bank for the evening set, but love the feeling of silk against your body – Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Autograph (M&S) might fit the bill. Beautiful and feminine colours evoke memories of hazy summer days whilst the signature delicate rose print, french lace and sumptuous silks continue to add a little bit of luxury. The collection has been made to fit everyone and anyone, all shapes and sizes. Showing vintage inspired silk longline bras as well as padded styles with different knicker options you can mix and match to suit your style and shape.
The underlying message is: racy lingerie is all well and good on a wedding night, but best to avoid the exposed bra straps or knicker lines on the day.
