What Is A Bridal Lingerie Shower?

A Bridal Lingerie Shower is a flirty twist on a traditional bridal shower. This party involves giving the bride lingerie and sleepwear gifts, which are sure to go down well with the groom!

Usually, these presents will be used for the wedding night or honeymoon. The guest list is typically limited to the bride’s closest friend, as the vibe tends to be intimate and sexy.

Tips For Planning A Bridal Lingerie Shower

Choose The Right Location

Ideally, you will want to host the lingerie bridal shower in a private place, such as the bride or maid of honor’s home. It’s a little inappropriate to be showing off underwear in a public setting! Consider getting a hotel room if someone’s home isn’t an option.

Get The Bride’s Sizes In Advance

Avoid potentially insulting the bride by obtaining her bra and dress size in preparation. Remember, many companies do not accept returns for intimate items, so it’s essential you get this right.

The maid of honor should check this info and distribute them to all the attendees. These can be added to the invites, along with any extra details like the bride’s tastes, favorite colors etc.

Create A Playlist

Go for sexy songs with a girl power message. Pop music tends to be a popular choice. Think Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and the Pussycat Dolls! You may also want to include a few of the bride’s favorites, as long as they are upbeat.

Set A Dress Code

Coordinating your outfits brings the whole group together and looks amazing in photos! You could go for a sleepover theme and have everyone wear pajamas, get everyone to wear pink, or suggest lingerie-inspired clothing such as corsets for more outgoing groups.

Only Invite The Bride’s Closest Friends

Weddings are a great opportunity to meet new people and become closer to distant friends. However, it may make the bride feel a little uncomfortable to be discussing her lingerie with those she doesn’t know well!

Avoid any awkwardness by only inviting her nearest and dearest. Leave mum and grandma off the guest list in case the girl talk gets a little risque!

Don’t Forget Food & Drink

Finger foods work better here than a sit-down meal option. Cocktails and champagne are also a must!


Some small decorative details will make the evening one to remember. This can be to suit the bride’s tastes, but popular options tend to be pink and girly themed.

Think Victoria Secrets fashion show! Balloons and flowers work well here. You could even use underwear as a decorative prop! Simply place a washing line up and pin-up your prettiest panties.
