  • Consider your dress. This is why dress comes first so that you can just pattern the wedding lingerie easily. In other words, don’t alter the dress just because the lingerie doesn’t fit well.
  • Comfort is key. Who wouldn’t want to feel comfortable on their big day, right? Once you’re comfortable enough with the lingerie, confidence follows.
  • Look into other colors. White, cream or ivory are the popular ones but don’t just limit yourself on these three colors. There are other colors in the color wheel that can look good on you and won’t ruin the entire look of your dress.
