The Nonconformist 

Some brides take their ‘something blue’ seriously and don’t subscribe to the idea of a white wedding. Instead of opting for more traditional, white lingerie for the wedding night, they want to shine through in blue.

Oscar de la Renta has created this stunner! The pale blue stands out even more vibrantly against the black lace framing the decolletage and the black trim. The La Perla chemise is absolutely opulent! Crafted from the finest Italian silk, this price tag of this investment piece isn’t for the faint of heart, but for a chemise this gorgeous, it may be worth it for the bride in your life.

At $48, this Monki Billie set, available at Asos, is a steal! A simple long line bra is paired with a high waist panty for a gorgeous, vintage look. The same look is achieved with this ever-so sweet, pin-up inspired Fortnight pair in the palest of blues. Truly bridal worthy!

    Beautiful pieces! I saw some amazing bridal lingerie in M&S today, I need to get married just to wear it. I’d buy it anyway if I weren’t a poor intern! http://www.marksandspencer.com/silk-and-lace-bolero/p/p22354299 There were matching silk tap pants too.
