Bluebella X Brides
It’s steadily approaching the warmer weather of June, which means amongst other activities for delightful summer nights, wedding season is approaching! We are all fans of a summer wedding; garden parties, fizz cocktails and killer outfits, but for a few it means a chance to show their loved one just how much they mean to them. We believe one of the best ways to do that is in the bedroom, which is why we’ve created some perfectly provocative pieces to accompany the big night, after the big day.
Bridal lingerie can be complicated, full of intricate buttons and more lace than the dress itself. Lots of us think we have to buy specialised garments that in all honesty are just going to come straight off. However no one bride is exactly the same; we all want different things from our lingerie, and a wedding is no exception!
Our Bridal Collection ranges from flirtatious harnesses and sensuous open bras to gorgeously simple sets with smooth lines and elegant full length chemises; every woman is sure to find something that takes their fancy, and there are no fiddly buttons in sight - let's leave that for the dresses.
For a wedding, you can’t go wrong with beautiful ivory lingerie – a classic choice for the bride-to-be. Our New In ivory Emerson range is perfect for the traditional bride who wants to be a little bit less conventional underneath the dress... Pair the bra and briefs for an understated yet suggestive look in lace, or up your game with the harness brief which is just a little more adventurous. Perhaps one to be donned after the dress has come off, this lacy number is just the ticket to give a little more than they bargained for.
If the standard white of a wedding is a bit too much for you, the flirty, playful dusty pink of the Laura collection is perfect for the bride who wants a little more support without losing any of the sex appeal. Slinky and elegant, the Laura collection includes options of a body, a push up, a balcony, or a soft cup bra, and features also a simple suspender belt which is not only seductive in its design but also offers a streamlined shape for practical use beneath the most special dress you’ll ever wear (see our Hosiery Blog). .
If you’re looking for something to take you from A to B-edroom, the Rose Dust hue also lends itself beautifully to the Phoebe Chemise, a simple bow front chemise with matching tie-side briefs that is just the right mix of cute and suggestive.
There’s nothing wrong with sticking to what you know works, and let’s face it, nobody wants to feel like their lingerie is out of place when they’re having to worry about making those steps down the aisle. The Nova is a bestseller for us and there is no reason why the Bridal collection would be any different! With an ivory spin to make it ready for the big day, the delightfully playful cut out nature of the Nova makes you feel cool, sassy and wildly sexy. Our pick would be the Nova Body or Nova Bra in ivory - something to make you feel a little bit naughty when making those steps towards your life-long partner.
Whilst the wedding industry is one of the biggest in the world - the UK spends on average around £10 billion a year on the special event - we can’t lie that we’re pretty keen on keeping our eyes open for a bargain, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. The Ines range in ivory is not only pretty and delicate, but made with lace and velvet; the collection is decadent in all the right places. The best thing? No one would ever know just how good value it was…
