First comes the engagement, then the wedding day. Your first night with your partner as a married couple. It’s an special moment when you can really show them how much you love them. Part of making your wedding night special means choosing the perfect wedding night lingerie. Your lingerie ascents your curves and shows off all your best features in a way that makes the night pure magic. 

So, if you’re looking for help choosing the perfect wedding night lingerie, you’re in the right place. Let’s take a look at how to select bridal lingerie that will fill your night with newlywed bliss.

When to Buy Wedding Night Lingerie

Before you rush out to buy your wedding night lingerie, take a look at the time frame you’re dealing with. You’ll want to make sure that you’re buying wedding lingerie at a time that makes sense. The reason for this is that many women fluctuate in weight in the months leading up to their weddings. When they buy lingerie too early, they wind up with lingerie that doesn’t actually fit. After your dress fitting, you’ll be able to call a lingerie store to schedule an appointment.

Know Your Body

So, you know that it’s the right time to shop for lingerie. What happens next?

After you’ve set up your appointment at a lingerie store, you’ll want to think about how the lingerie will look on your body. Your lingerie store associate can help you with this. You should be thinking about styles that fit your body and that accentuate your best assets. For example, you can curve hugging lingerie that shows off your body or you can go for subtle, modest styles that hint at what lies below. 

Either way, be sure to choose something that complements your body type. If you feel comfortable in your outfit, you’ll feel more relaxed on your actual wedding night. 

Finally, it’s important to make sure you get lingerie that’s the correct size. Most lingerie stores will help you make adjustments before your big day if necessary, but you should try to choose lingerie that’s well-fitting right off the bat. 

Get Creative With Your Style

Now that you know what looks good on your body, it’s time to think about what you want to wear. There are many different colors, materials, and styles that you can choose from. 

To start, think about what type of person you are. Your lingerie should show off who you are or how you want to be on your wedding night. Or, it can play into fantasies that you and your partner have secretly been harboring. 

Next, try experimenting with different styles. You should give the same amount of attention to your wedding lingerie as you gave to your wedding dress. After all, this is a special night and is a great time to be bold and sultry in something that makes you feel great. 

After that, you’ll want to think about what color you want your wedding night lingerie to be. Think about the colors that really make you glow. These colors should complement your skin tone. You can also choose colors that are a favorite of your partner. If you know he or she loves you in red, why not choose to wear something in that color on your wedding night?

Finally, plan out the material that you want your lingerie to be. You should choose a material that makes you feel sexy and that works well with your body. You can choose from silk, cotton, satin, lace, see-through materials, and so much more.
