When it comes to shopping for your bridal trousseau, pick pieces that you feel amazing in— and that you know you both will love long after the wedding day. On the weekend of your wedding, on your honeymoon, and in newlywed life, you should feel your most beguiling; and crafting the ultimate collection of pretty little things will usher in that confidence, and ensure the feeling lasts. From matching lingerie sets to robes, chic sleepers, and underpinning essentials, here are the tips, tricks, and must-have lingerie-drawer additions to add to your bridal bundle.
This is the time to invest in pieces that make you feel like your best, most sensual self. A matching bra and panty set is not only sexy, but an empowering purchase that can elevate not only the way you feel when you shed your wedding wardrobe, but how you feel in your ensembles. Whether it's to wear underneath your bridal shower dress, at the bachelorette, or on the night before the wedding, a chic bridal-esque set will really set the mood—and take your wedding dressing to new heights. Keep in mind, this set doesn't need to be white to fit the bridal bill.
On the morning of your wedding, your wedding photographer will likely be capturing those intimate moments with your closest friends and family. Plan your getting-ready wardrobe in advance for the added bonus of documenting this time with a fashion-forward twist. This is where the investment of a beautiful robe or chemise comes into play. Bonus: you'll also be glad you have these pieces for the honeymoon when you're ready to relax and unwind.
The drop-off post-wedding is real, and you'll find that on your honeymoon you'll still want to feel like a bride—or simply, feel your best. Dress the part, and don't shy away from donning bridal whites on the beach, for day trips, or to newlywed nights out. Keep in mind that you'll need swimwear no matter where you're headed. Whether you are packing for a beach resort, a road trip, an arctic ski retreat, a far-flung adventure, or all of the above, these are a few of the foolproof pieces to pack.
Admittedly, pure-white lingerie isn't the best color choice for every skin tone. Don't limit yourself to all-white and blush trousseau items if that isn't what makes you feel your most alluring. Opt instead for florals, black lace, and pops of color—like red, fuchsia, or beautiful shades of blue. Trust us, these are the under things you'll want around long after the wedding weekend.
Treat yourself to new pajamas for the nights leading up to your wedding and all the days in between. This is the time to consider self-care, like what you'll wear while lounging in a cooling eye mask before the ceremony and celebrations. To avoid any marks on your skin, opt for ultra-feminine, loose, and sumptuous silks rather than anything with tight elastics at the waist or at your ankles.
Under the Gown
When it comes to the necessities underneath it all, be sure to speak with your bridal stylist about undergarment options. A corseted gown shouldn't require a bra, but clingy fabrics or a daring neckline might warrant a seamless finish elsewhere. From slimming shapewear to seamless skivvies, these are the go-to bridal styling accessories you'll want on hand in your wedding trousseau.
