With wedding season looming ahead, Iâ€™m sure many of you, like me, will be faced with the daunting task of purchasing a little something special for the bride-to-be. Since not all brides (or budgets) are alike, this can be quite a challenge. With brides representing a wide range of ages, styles, and sizes, one gift doesnâ€™t necessarily fit all. The most important rule is to know thy bride. Whatâ€™s hot, sexy, or sweet to you, may differ from that of said bride so be sure to take that into consideration. Not that every woman doesnâ€™t have an inner vixen or isnâ€™t willing to spice it up for her honeymoon, but you do want her to actually wear what you give her! My hope is that this guide will inspire you to choose the perfect gift for the bride-to-be and not break the bank (unless of course you can afford to)!
Our â€œPolished Princessâ€ is our traditional bride-to-be. She is the epitome of classic elegance. For this lovely lady who wishes to keep the magic going during the honeymoon, this frilled bra and thong set by Charnos, available at Figleaves, is perfect. I love flirty little bows that accentuate this lovely set. It is the epitome of fun and elegance and at $84 for the set, it will be worth the splurge for the fun it will provide for the happy couple.
Traditional elegance is at its finest in this Lace Cup Silk Gown by Victoriaâ€™s Secret. Splurge for the matching silk robe and the bride (and groom) will be thanking you. I also like this floor skimming piece because it is appropriate for a bride of any age. Classic!
Want something simple and sweet? Perhaps this Straight Lace Chemise by Eberjey will suffice. I love how soft, pretty, and comfortable this piece is. Perfect for during – or after – the honeymoon. This would be fitting for a romantic evening on a warm, tropical island or a relaxing evening at home. Shop the Eberjey site or my recent site find Bagshop.com.
For a classic bride who prefers a bit more practicality and comfort, try this comfy, but alluring two piece set by Fleurâ€™t. Available at a number of retailers across the country such as Laina Jane in New York and Lisa Kline in L.A., this feminine and functional set is also found at HerRoom.com.
If money is no object, I suggest Castaway Halter Chemise by MYLA available at La Petite Coquette for $380. The ultimate in luxury and glamour this flowy chemise features lace cups and handkerchief hem detail. This will keep the newlyweds on Cloud 9 for sure.
Stay tuned for picks for the Sassy Soon-to-be Mrs. â€¦
