Okay bees, I am stumped.
Did you wear sexy lingere under your wedding dress (ie: bustier, garter belt, garters)?
I had a vision of wearing sexy lingere under my wedding gown, because FI will have to help me take it off at the end of the night. However, I have been to every major retailer’s website that I can think of, and the only thing they have are ugly beige/white/black shapewear (like spandex Spanx).
I am assuming that most people wear the ugly shapewear, then change into something sexy later in the evening. But, like I said, I cannot take my dress off myself. So, FI is going to have to help me. I feel like it ruins everything for him to see me in a beige girdle, running to the bathroom to put on something sexy.
So, I just wanted to know if I any of you wore anything sexy under your dress, and if you did, where did you get it?

A little TMI but I’m just wearing white lace panties under my dress so I’ll have my FI unzip it and I’ll probably slip it off and put my lingerie on right in front of him… like a strip tease lol… my lingerie is white and see through anyway- just something fun to put on while we ‘play’…

I think thatthis is why brides used to wear going away suits.

David’s bridal has some shapewear that is a little more corset-y looking. It’s not quite AS sexy, but it might do the trick if you get desperate.
And I used to work at a lingerie store and garter belts are usually sold seperately, so it might be easier to piece together some sexy stuff by finding all white stuff. Check Macy’s (idk what’s near you) Victoria’s secret, online, etc for seperate pieces.
Here’s a pic of the david’s bridal stuff:

DH helped me get the dress off, then I showered (I’m allergic to hairspray) and put on the lingerie after.

I wore very little under my gown: nothing up top (cups sewn into gown), a pair of thin skin-colored panties (thong), and elastic thigh-highs (no garter, they stay up with elastic-lined lace).
Since I changed into comfy clothes for our after-party, I also changed my under-clothes — but to something equally comfy! Just a regular cute bra and panties. When we got to our room for the night, we both wore soft flannel PJs we got specifically for the wedding & honeymoon.
TBH, I didn’t feel the need to pull out all the stops and go into seduction mode for the wedding night. We had already discussed how tired we’d be, so we decided that if we didn’t have the energy to be intimate that night, we’d have plenty of opportunity on the honeymoon. We were exhausted and I hadn’t eaten anything all day, so for us, snuggling and sleeping made for an ideal first night as a married couple.
If you’re planning on him helping you with your gown, I still think you should go for comfort over sexy. Trust me, you’ll want to have very little constricting your body after a looong day/night, so you may just end up taking *everything* off and… leaving it that way 🙂

I’m sure we’ll both be all asweat with the crazy dancy and heavy dress clothes so we both plan on taking showers and using that opportunity for me to put on something small and sexy.
For your situation, I suggest holding your dress together while he undoes the back and then send him away while you slip out and change. Nothing wrong with building the romance with a little suspense.

@danicalifornia: I love the idea of a shower or maybe even a bath together. We try and take atleast 3 showers a week together.
