Perfect Bridal Lingerie For Your Wedding Day

I think I’ve mentioned a few times in the past here on Rock My Wedding that I’m more than a little bit enamoured with all things from the smalls drawer. Frilly knickers and lacy bras, balconettes and Brazilian briefs, thongs and French knickers, garters and bustiers…the list goes on.

But we all know for your actual wedding day, you need something a little more sensible and supportive than colourful, super pretty lacy numbers. I wanted a set of bridal lingerie that offered me support in all the right places for my big day, but not so robust that my guests could see every piece of wiring and boning underneath. It needed to be comfortable too…not a lot to ask then! Today we’re bringing you some expert advice from Lingerie specialists, Rigby & Peller, whose knowledge and service is unrivalled, with over 75 years at the top of their game and a Royal Warrant to boot.

The sheer choice of bridal lingerie available to brides can be overwhelming – I certainly found this to be the case in the lead up to my own big day – but that doesn’t mean that every style of bra or brief will be compatible with your chosen wedding dress design. Where to start? Which style will be suitable for your bridal gown? Rest assured, along with Rigby & Peller, we’re here to help with our handy guide and top tips below.

How striking is this naked tipi frame adorned with flowers? Such a beautiful way to decorate your outdoor wedding ceremony. We love discovering new ways to decorate your wedding aisle, check out this post from our archives if you do too.

This frame has to be one of my favourites though, the swoon worthy combination of ribbon and dark Autumnal blooms creates a backdrop that won’t be forgotten in a while. Especially in the other-wordly setting of Godwick Hall. Images come from Darina Stoda, whose dramatic and evocative style lends itself perfectly to the styling here.

Wow, what a venue! The Sefton Park Palm House in Liverpool not only looks incredible but provided the inspiration for this truly breathtaking botanical wedding. There’s succulents as favours and buttonholes, gorgeous white blooms in metallic spray painted jars and the sweetest laurel stationery.

Bride Kate wears an absolutely jaw dropping Giselle Anna Campbell gown which has the most fabulous embellished neckline, making Kate look like a grecian goddess with her flower crown and bridal braid. And as for her maids, what a picture they all look in their tea length gold lace Chi Chi London dresses. Talk about squad goals.

We love it when couple find their wedding photographers through us which was the case for Kate & Keith with Cassandra Lane Photography, and there’s no doubt in my mind with this gorgeous wedding you’ll all be feeling inspired and making more enquiries too.

Who’s missing the weekend sun already? Well this summer wedding at Merriscourt in the gorgeous Cotswold countryside is sure to lift your spirits. Packed with gorgeous wild florals in jam jars, the sweetest watercolour stationery and absolutely bursting with SO much joy and love.

I literally cannot stop looking at the amazing picture of bride Olga & her beau Ben in the corn field taken by the super talented McKinley Rodgers Photography, it’s seriously HOT and shows off Olga’s breathtaking Pronovias Irune gown to perfection. Then there’s the film by Story Catchers which has just melted my heart. Husband & wife duo Pen & Cam really do know how to capture those special moments.

What happens when an Aussie guy meets an Essex gal? A gorgeous classic country wedding with beautiful wild blooms and DIY details in a pastel pretty marquee at Hedingham Castle that’s what. But not before an adorable ceremony at the family church which also married bride Hannah’s parents, and framing the sentimental nuptials are THE MOST immense aisle flowers.

The incredible floral arrangements don’t stop there though, oh no. There’s also the blush centrepiece florals on wood slices, and the ladies perfect posies to match their perfect gowns. The bridesmaids dress in embellished No.1 by Jenny Packham gowns which are simply stunning, but Hannah’s Aire Barcelona gown is in a different league and looks like it was made for her.

Matt Willis was on hand to capture all the details and love, including an incredible angle of those aisle flowers so get those pinning fingers at the ready.

Happy Mother’s day you lovely lot!

Today’s a really appropriate day for me to talk to you about flowers, because my lovely Mum is definitely a big driving force behind the floral vision for our big day. You see, I have developed my love of florals later in life. A peak at my Instagram feed will probably show you that pretty blooms are a regular feature in my house, so that they can grace my feed in style.

But, and it’s a big but, my knowledge of flowers is pretty thin on the ground.

Sophie and Louis are simply adorable. Both of their facial expressions as they are getting ready are priceless – anticipation, nerves, excitement and joy – there’s nothing quite like the melting pot of emotions that is your wedding morning! Sophie looks like a Princess in her stunning Suzanne Neville gown. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, it’s always worth trying on a style of dress you hadn’t considered before. Sophie’s stylist at her boutique suggested this gown and I have to say, it’s perfect for her!

Images come from the lovely Mary & Maurizio at Quattro Studio who you’ll find on our Love Lust List. If you’re planning an Italian wedding too, then we’d certainly recommend their dreamy style.

Oh and one final mention – THAT incredible lighting! The evening festivities look simply magical – a fitting end to the day for our Princess bride.
