does bridal lingerie need to be white

What comes to mind when you think of bridal lingerie? Probably the color white! White is the traditional color of wedding gowns and bridal lingerie. However, many women don’t want to wear a white dress, so they opt for an alternative color, like blush or ivory. So, can brides wear non-white lingerie and consider it bridal lingerie? Absolutely! As long as the lingerie makes you feel beautiful and bridal, it can serve as bridal lingerie.

Tips For Selecting Your Bridal Lingerie

The color of bridal lingerie is not necessarily what gives it a bridal feel. Instead, the bridal elements are in the small details – lace, embellishments and style. Here are some tips for selecting non-white bridal lingerie.

1.  Choose something that makes you feel beautiful.

Lingerie should make you feel beautiful – regardless of the occasion. It’s okay to stick to a style that you know will make you feel comfortable. If you want to try a new style, go for it! Just make sure the lingerie makes you feel confident.

2.  Opt for light-colored lingerie.

Light-colored lingerie pieces are perfect for brides. Think of pastels and neutral colors, like blush, peach, ivory, gold, silver or light blue. These colors are dainty and feminine and are great alternatives to white.

3.  Select lingerie that matches your wedding colors.

Another way to select non-white bridal lingerie is to opt for lingerie that matches your wedding color scheme. This works regardless of your wedding colors – yellow, mint green, royal blue, fuchsia or purple. After all, how could you not feel like a bride when your intimates coordinate with your wedding?

4.  Look for the small details.

Remember to pay attention to the small details when shopping for bridal lingerie. Sometimes it’s lace detailing, meshing, diamond accents or a specific fit that makes lingerie look bridal. Longline bra styles are timeless and beautiful as bridal lingerie. And, small blue accents make lingerie look bridal, too. For example, a blush thong may have metallic, light blue polka dots on it.

Every woman is different, so it’s essential you choose wedding lingerie based on how you feel in it.
