wedding night lingerie

Recommended Posts

I'm very interested in this thread. Even though I'm going to have my own destination wedding in a couple of years, my future step daughter is having her wedding this July, and I have some questions.

 

It's always been a tradition here that the MOB provide the wedding night lingerie. In my day....yes, I'm old....the bride was given a beautiful, yet sexy, white peignoir (nightie and robe) by the mother. I only have an unmarried son and have not been to many showers/weddings to know what goes on.

 

It's apparent from reading this thread that wedding night lingerie is not a big thing with brides. Would a such a gift be completely old-fashioned and unappreciated? Do none of you have this tradition? Is this a gift you would like? This is a tense relationship as it is, and I'd hate to make it worse.

 

BTW, her father, my FI, thinks it's a wonderful idea and thinks his daughter would love it.

 

I'd love to read your thoughts.

 

Thanks

Well, honestly, I was expecting something similar like that from my mom at my shower. I did get a Victoria's Secret outfit - cute little sheer tank with panties. Very cute, but not what I had expected. I guess I watched too many movies and was expecting exactly what you described. But I think you can't go wrong if you do give that as a gift. I mean, it isn't like it is offensive. Here is one I bought for myself which is super cute.

 

Ok, I can't find the exact one, but this is pretty close. The one I got is sheer and straight and then has a short pleated hem at the bottom. Similar to this -

Carly,

 

Thanks for your response. I've talked to a few of the younger women at work, recent brides, who received lingerie gifts from their mothers. I also talked to friends who had given these gifts to their daughters at their showers. So, a romantic lingerie set is still an acceptable gift.

 

Now the hard part is to find something. I've looked online to get an idea of where to go and there seems to be nothing on-line at all. All that are shown are the short, sexy baby-doll types. I guess I'll have to hit some of the stores in person.

I'm almost certain the Victoria's Secret website has a Wedding section, and I recall seeing sexy, but not as skimpy items there.

I got lingerie at my shower, but not from my mom. My sister and FSIL took care of that!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
