Lingerie shower is an intimate gathering that involves best friends of the bride, sexy gifts and lots of laughing. Goal of this party is to shower the bride-to-be with sexy intimates and sleepwear she’ll use on her wedding night or during honeymoon. Wondering who should be invited, when to send the invitations and should you play games? Here’s everything you need to know about lingerie shower etiquette.
Who should throw the lingerie shower?
Usually, the maid of honor throws the lingerie shower. If maid of honor can’t do it, some other close friend of the bride-to-be should take the task.
When to throw the lingerie shower?
It’s a great idea to have the lingerie shower during the bachelorette party. It makes perfect sense to do this – bachelorette party is the last wild get-together for the bride-to-be and her closest friends. If you want to have a separate event, lingerie shower should be one of the last parties for the bride-to-be, since the gifts are meant to be used on a wedding night.
Who should be invited?
Guest list should be small – only the closest friends of the bride-to-be should be invited. The bride will open a lot of gifts with sexy underwear and erotic toys – this isn’t something she wants to do in front of her mother or grandmother.
Should you send invitations?
Yes. Don’t forget to include specific details: what the bride likes and size that she wears. Include bra, panties and pajama sizes.
Where should the lingerie shower take place?
If it isn’t during the bachelorette party, lingerie shower should take place at a private location. Bride should be comfortable while opening and showing her gifts.
Should the bride have a registry?
This isn’t necessary, but it’s easier for guests to know the bride’s preferences. If the bride is conservative, stick to the traditional underwear and sleepwear. If she is very particular, she should register for specific underwear at one of her favorite shops.
Should the lingerie shower have a theme?
Lingerie shower doesn’t need to have a theme, but having one can make things more fun. Pick a theme that reflects the personality of the bride-to-be.
