Simple Fuss-Free Bridal Lingerie

There is so much to deal with on your big wedding day. Who wants to be wrestling with garters and snaps or struggling into girdles? The lingerie industry has realized this and is now selling a one piece bridal/lingerie stocking combo that you can just slip on and forget about for the entire day. Usually these are matching sets that come in many colors (including white, pink and blue) and include a bridal thong, bridal suspenders and bridal stockings that attaché in a way that makes it really simple to do things like visit the bathroom just before you walk up the aisle..

This type of one-piece item does not come cheeap. A good brand that is recommended by My Tights is called Asia stockings and you can get the attached thong, suspender and stocking set for about seventy bucks. These types of tights also give you choice a sheer or matte toe with a carefully worked seam that does not show if you end up wearing them with glittery sandals or an open-toed style.

A little shopping around on the net or in local bridal stores will probably turn up a similar type of lingerie stock. Just make sure you buy a set that is durable and of a high quality. Cheap sets like this tend to run very easily or just not fit so be prepared to spend a little bit of money.

Another option is to buy thigh-high stockings that stick to the leg. These are commonly known as bridal stay-ups. You can get nylon styles with polka dot or lace or look a bit like chenille. Popular colors ar white, ivory, cream, pink and blue (so you are wearing “something blue” on the big day.”

These general come in two constructions. There is the thigh high high with the gently elasticized topa nd the one with the thick vinyl tops. The larger, thicker and more rubbry the top of the stockings are the more likely they will actually stay up while you walk down the aisel.

One of the nicest styles has the top of the thigh high stocking rimmed with bunches of satin roses. You can also get them adorned with satin ribbons, rhinestones and many other details.

If you like the black and white look you will might want to spring for a pair that is bright white but that has a black inseam going up the back. The effect is very Betty Boop but also quite contemporary and very very sexy.

Wedding Flowers in Your Hair

Given the trend towards the natural, the organic and the fresh and green it is no surprise that more people than ever is opting to get married wearing fresh blooms rather than silk or polyester one.  The fake look is out and all things alive and fragrant are in.  If you are going to get married wearing fresh flowers rather than fake ones is also considered to be good like.  Another plus is that the flowers add a nice natural fragrance to the smell of your hair.


In Hawaii or Asia it is more common to wear one or more large colored blooms but in Western weddings the flowers worn in the bride’s lock tend to be smaller. They also always tend to be pastel colored or white if you are thinking in traditional terms. Of course nowadays modern brides wear every shade and variety of flower in their hair from bizarre green orchids to sophisticated burgundy calla lilies to delicate miniature roses.


However if you want to be standard about it then the flowers usually chosen are small gardenias, roses, orchids and lilies.  Daisies are often worn in the hair as well but this is more of a contemporary touch that was actually popularized by Drew Barrymore.


In England wearing wildflowers in the hair has been popular for a very long time. In fact a classic look is the circlet made with real blossoms. If it is winter go for heavier looking flowers in velvety reds. Start thinking of Chrysanthemums and Roses.  Miniature purple or blue orchids of the miniature English wildflower varieties work well too.


In more summery months herbs can be twisted with buttercups, daisies and other blossoms to make a beautiful crown for the head.  You do not have to wear the flowers as a wreathe or a tiara. Flowers look lovely twined right into the locks of your hair, especially if the hair is braided.


Another very nice touch is to have your groom match the flower in his suit buttonhole to the color of the bloom in your hair.


It is also important to consider the color of your hair before you adorn it with wedding flowers. Violet and red flowers go well with blonde hair and crimsons and white flowers go wonderfully with brunettes.  For a flash of real interest try wearing a big orange flower in your hair if you happen to be a redhead!
