Why is the groom supposed to carry the bride “over the threshold”?
Ancient Romans believed that a bride should only enter her new home through the main door on her wedding day, but that if she tripped or fell, it would bring bad luck upon the couple’s household. The Romans feared that demons would try to trip the bride to ensure that bad luck fell upon them, so to avoid the potential downfall (get it?), the groom would just go ahead and carry her through the door and over the threshold.

Perfect Wedding Lingerie

Helping you get from wedding woes to wedding bliss one issue at a time!

Much like shopping for your wedding attire, shopping for your wedding lingerie is one of the most fun aspects of planning your wedding.

Consider buying separate sets of lingerie for your wedding gown, your reception dress and your wedding night.
For your wedding gown, you may need extra support from your lingerie. For your reception dress, you may want something more seamless. For your wedding night, the focus may be solely on the lingerie itself. So with all of that in mind, consider buying two or three different sets of lingerie. While you’re at it, don’t forget about your honeymoon!

Match your wedding day lingerie to your gown.
However playful, colorful lingerie might show through under your white gown, so choose something that won’t distract your guests or look tacky.

Have every piece properly fitted and, if need be, properly tailored.
Even the finest intimates can look frumpy if they don’t fit your body correctly. Be sure to have your measurements taken and have every piece of lingerie properly fitted and tailored to your body.

Have your wedding gown and reception dress fitted over your lingerie.
Bring your wedding lingerie to your dress fittings to make sure your wedding gown and your reception dress lay nicely over your delicates. Your lingerie should enhance the shape of your body, but if it proves to be too bulky under clothes, you’ll want to know ahead of time so that you can look for lingerie that doesn’t bulge out of your gowns.

Try everything on again at least one week before your wedding.
You’ll want to make sure that everything still fits perfectly for the big day, so be sure to try on your lingerie and your gown at least one week before your wedding in case any last-minute alterations need to be made.
