Swoon-worthy getting ready images on your wedding day start with picking the perfect bridal getting ready outfit for your glamorous, luxe wedding. Most brides opt for the standard short robe or monogrammed PJ set but don't consider a bit more glamorous, alluring option for their wedding day getting ready look. But, you want a little something unique. Instead of cookie-cutter, you should consider these alternative options.
No girl, I'm not talking about your grandma's Peignoirs. The modern, lux bridal peignoirs are made for the confident, glam bride who wants a sexy, but more covered getting ready outfit. Essentially Bridal Peignoirs are a sexy, lingerie-inspired dress you can wear as you get ready. Added Plus, you can wear these over and over in the comfort of your own home for comfy mornings as you prepare for your day. (Believe me, the hubs won't mind!!) Modern bridal peignoirs tend to be more covering, have added glamorous elements of beading, sparkle, and elegant sheer material that cover, but also show off just enough.
2.) Simple Silk Slip
This is the perfect idea for you if you are a bit more conservative, but want a glamorous somewhat sexy, bridal getting ready outfit. There are so many slip options from a short bedroom slip or more covered, simple white slips that can even be worn after as a sexy satin dress after the wedding. If you intend to wear shape wear, consider buying a pretty white slip that acts as both your shape-wear and your getting ready slip. To add the perfect glam bridal element, don't forget the perfectly paired robe.
3.) The stunning robe your friends will talk about for years to come.
For your robe, I'm not talking about the simple, short bridal robe you see everywhere. I'm talking head to toe ethereal lace that drags behind you as walk and get pampered your wedding day morning. There are so many glam options such as tee length sheer robes with cascading sleeves and sequins. Or, even more, simple options with sheer chiffon and delicate eyelash lace.
4.) Classy Intimates with Glamorous Bridal Robes
Girl, don't get scared off just yet! Wearing a classy bridal bra and panty set or bodysuit with the added element of a stunning bridal robe for coverage is a wonderful option for the confident bride. Girl, you have worked hard on getting ready for your wedding, feel free to add a bit of alluring, but covering intimates for your wedding day getting ready look. Consider adding a short time for a boudoir inspired getting ready session before your beautiful gown goes on. This is a wonderful way to calm your nerves, and feel super confident for your day! And, as a plus, you will have super pretty, slightly sultry images to surprise your hubby with when you view your wedding gallery.
I've forever been inspired by seeing intimate getting ready images of gorgeous, luxe brides shot by wonderful photographers such as Jose Villa. Our fashion editorial photo shoot was inspired by brides such as those and our stunning detailed intimates and bridal robes. We wanted a glamorous, free, confident feel to our shoot, so we choose the dreamy Pensacola and Destin, Florida beaches as our backdrop. The white sand, the emerald water, and the gorgeous pink sunsets matched the theme of our outfits, accessories, and mood. As a modern bride, we wanted to show you some ways you could style and wear your choice of bridal peignoirs, slips, or classy intimates sets and teddy's paired with ethereal robes.
