If you’re a Bride to Be and soon to be wed and just don’t know where to start when it comes to what to wear beneath your wedding dress, then this might just be of some help. We find many Brides leave finding their wedding underwear to the last minute, either they’ve been losing weight before the big day or they think it will simply be a case of popping into town to pick something up. Unfortunately this tends not to be as straight forward as they imagine.

A wedding dress is a really special dress not just by its very nature but by its design and fit as well, so quite often requires some special lingerie for your wedding day. This is really why it shouldn’t be left to the last minute and taken for granted that it will be an easy task. So where do you start when looking for your bridal underwear? Whatever you decide upon, it’s important that it works in complete harmony with you and your wedding gown.

If your dress already has a lot of boning throughout the bodice then a wedding corset with plenty of boning is more than likely going cause some discomfort. Resist the temptation when you hear a corset can take up to 4″ off your waistline in seconds. Properly fitted they can, but the 4″ has to go somewhere! A wedding corset is very good at helping to shape and sculpt your figure to a more hourglass silhouette and providing support over your midriff. Some bridal corsets also have underwired cups and also give good lift, support and shape to your bust too!

Many wedding dresses have sweetheart or bateau necklines and therefore require a style of strapless wedding lingerie to go beneath. This is where it begins to get more tricky and even more so if your size tends to be less well stocked in high street shops, so a bit more time and patience is called for. A strapless wedding bustier could work well for this style, it would still provide some shaping to your figure as well as underwired support for your breasts.

It’s important to get fitted and go and try on bridal bras, you want to make sure it doesn’t give you a bulge over the top of the cup or alternatively that the cups don’t fall forward when you lean over, leaving you feeling unsupported and exposed! A dress that is made from a light material, such as silk or satin may also show any fancy lace edging or a heavily padded cup will be quite noticeable. Your wedding day lingerie should be the unsung hero of your wedding day, comfy and supportive and not seen by your guests and photographer!

Comfort has already been mentioned a few times, because it’s important. Your wedding day does pass by quickly but comfort really is king, so bear this in mind when it comes to your undies. If you’re not a thong kind of person then your wedding day is not the day to try. You don’t want to be fidgeting and shuffling all through your day trying to get comfortable, stick to briefs or hip huggers if that’s what you’re used too! You can get underwear that don’t have elasticated edges so don’t show the dreaded VPL!

Shapewear is quite a popular option these days with brides wanting to make sure that everything is tucked in to look their best in the wedding photographs. Bridal shapewear has evolved quite markedly over the years with some nice pieces available in whites and ivories to suit dress colours. When it comes to colours, try and make sure that you get bridal underwear that matches the colour of your dress. Most important of all is to try your wedding day lingerie on with your dress at some point to make sure they compliment each other and you’re comfortable!

Today’s lingerie spotlight is a beautiful and elegant Low Back Bridal Corset.

low_back_floral_corset

Not only is this an eye catching wedding corset that will leave your newly wed speechless when they see you on your wedding night, it also offers some great features to go with your wedding gown. This popular low back wedding corset is well suited to backless and sweetheart styles of wedding dresses because of its low back, which sits perfectly placed below your shoulder blades for comfort whilst at the same time maintaining its support structure.

It is made from a delicate lace at the front, whilst the back is a soft stretch mesh which allows it to mould to your bodies natural curves leaving a stunning silhouette.

low_back_floral_corset_back

This is a full length corset sitting half way down your hip, many others rest just above the hip. Resting over your hip allows the corset to act a little like shapewear in the fact that it holds all your waist, hips and tummy in whilst still maintaining a smooth look.

parallex-gallery1-534x800_dm_edit_b2WuCP

This low back bridal corset will sit perfectly with this style of dress or similar, as the low back of the corset will swoop down your side to your lower back following the outline of the gown.

parallex-gallery2-534x800_dm_edit_GAts1U

Our stunning low back bridal corset is made from a beautiful quality lace, and is available in ivory or white with a full range of sizes, it has the added flexibility of removable suspender straps, that would allow for bridal hold-ups of stockings if preferred.

We also stock matching elegant bridal briefs and thongs, to further compliment your look.

        Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards

Bridal Accessories Award Winner

After some procrastinating the decision to enter the Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards under the category of Bridal Accessories was taken. Why the indecision? It had been a busy 2016 for us, finally taking the plunge and opening our own independent lingerie shop in Nailsea, near Bristol. This in itself had brought along with it many steep learning curves and still does as any business owner will testify to! We would also be up against some tough competition and felt we were certain to be the underdog going into any such competition.

 Wedding Wishing Well Foundation

The Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards is really a charity event hosted by a most worthy charity organisation; The Wedding Wishing Well. A charity set up to help couples suffering a terminal or life limiting illness realise their dream and become joined together in marriage. It was an award ceremony judged not solely on popularity but on Brides feedback on your quality and service. The ceremony was to be a black tie event held at the Double Tree by Hilton at Cadbury House, it was to be a night out and an excuse to dressed up if nothing else!

Moonrise Lingerie Bristol 

February soon arrived and the tickets arrived, thick red card adorned with black lace, a feather and some gold trimmings. The scene was set! The usual last minute panic manifested itself when trying to leave the house on time, a few minor wardrobe malfunctions along with a few tears from children and we were on our way.

 Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2017

Met by the magnificent frontage of The Cadbury House Hotel, we were directed to The Great Room where guests were already mingling, enjoying conversation and more importantly a glass of Prosecco! Can-Can girls put on a show as we were all ushered to take our seats in the fabulously themed Moulin Rouge venue. It wasn’t long before the fund-raising began for The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, with a game of play your cards right and a raffle with an auction to follow!

Moonrise Lingerie Wedding Awards Winner 

Then came the Awards part of the evening, the part that all were anxiously awaiting. The hope that all of your hard work throughout the last wedding season was going to be recognised by your Brides to Be and acknowledged by many suppliers from across the industry. From Photographers, Cake Makers, Wedding Planners, Venue Dressers and Entertainers, we were all there. First up, Bridal Accessories, “and our first winner this evening is……..Moonrise Lingerie!”

 Bridal Boudoir by Viktoria Kuti at Berwick Lodge, Bristol

What does boudoir suggest to you? Glamour? Sensuallity? Beauty? That idea of suggestion?

bridal_boudoir_photo_berwick_lodge

Bristol based boudoir and portrait photographer Viktoria Kuti captured all of this and more in a beautiful bridal boudoir photo session at the stunning Berwick Lodge Hotel in Bristol.

This delightful country house style hotel was to be the perfect location to let Viktoria’s creativity and professionalism run wild. All of their rooms are beautifully decorated throughout with a delightful historical touch, but The Lydia Suite was chosen to set the scene.

A gorgeous antique cream queen four poster bed along with period styled sofa’s and decor along with a stunning roll top bath were all carefully used to create an outstanding bridal boudoir photoshoot.

bridal_boudoir_viktoria_kuti_moonrise_lingerie

Weddings are very personal occasions and once all of the ceremony and celebration is over, photos, video clips and memories are what you have left to recall the wonderful event. A bridal boudoir shoot is a really personal way for The Bride to capture this special moment in her life and it serves as an intimate reminder to be shared between each other in marriage.

plus_size_wedding_lingerie_boudoir_viktoria_kuti

Viktoria made excellent use of the venue, lighting and Afton to produce a host of delicate imagery that reflects the true personal and intimate nature of a boudoir session.

Marriage itself is a joining together of two people and families, to celebrate their love and commitment to one another. We were delighted to see that our very own ‘Harmony’ plus size bridal lingerie set was used for the shoot.

So what sort of a Bride are you when it comes to shopping for your Wedding? Are you cool, calm and collected when it comes to making decisions? Do you leave everything to the last minute and just take everything as it comes? Or are you the original Bridezilla, when you know exactly what you want and anything other than perfection is just a downright outrage and an utter personal insult?

gabrielle _wedding_bustier

When it comes to wedding underwear for your Big Day, don’t leave it to the last minute! Even if you’ve been losing weight and you hope to lose a few more pounds, get your bridal lingerie in plenty of time, about 6-8 weeks before your wedding day. At least you have enough time to ale sure it fits comfortably, and I don’t just mean for 5 minutes in a changing room, you should wear it for a while to make sure it’s really comfy and supportive. You’re going to be wearing it for the whole day, the last thing you want is to feel it riding up, falling down or digging into you.

bridal_basque_1

Give it some thought before you go shopping for your bridal underwear. Think about what style of lingerie is going to suit your figure AND your wedding dress. Whatever you choose, be it a bridal bustier, a wedding corset or a full bra and suspender set, it has to work in Harmony with you and your gown. Think of it as the foundation on which your wedding dress is going to sit on, if it’s no good then it’s not going to show you and your dress off to the max!

low_back_wedding_corset

Choose something that is going to give you support where you want it. If you’re big chested make sure they’re supported. If you want a smooth outline to your figure then look for a longline wedding corset or some bridal shapewear that’s going to give a nice contour to your shape. The main thing is that you’re comfortable in what you choose.

lucky_sixpence_wedding_garter

If you’re a Panic Bride and you’re an unusual size or a size that isn’t normally well stocked for some reason, then change your approach! You might well find your perfect bridal lingerie to go beneath your dress, but if it’s not a ‘popular/ common’ size or even if the colour isn’t right, then you’ll need some time to get it ordered! After all you want it to be perfect, don’t you?

Wedding Bell Stockings

If you don’t want to be a Panic Bride and leave everything to the last minute then order a FREE bridal lingerie catalogue from Moonrise Lingerie – “The Bridal Underwear Specialists” and get your wedding underwear all sorted!
