Everyone has a color preference and by now you must know what the favourite color of your bride to be is. Some women, for instance, love beige while others might prefer black. It would be a great idea to get some hints about what her likes and dislikes are, when it comes to colour preferences.

2. Know her size

3. Go the gift voucher way

This one takes a little different path but reaches the same goal of gifting her lingerie on the wedding night. By giving her a gift voucher, you get the advantage of keeping things a secret and she gets to buy something of her choice. The lingerie she buys will come in handy on your honeymoon and other nights to follow.

4. Make it special

Your wedding night is a special time and you do not need us to tell you that. Many couples gift each other something on this night, not as a tradition but more as a gesture of love. If the husband gifts his wife some beautiful lingerie, it is his way of showing his commitment and love to his significant other.  It would be a great idea to wrap the gift aesthetically and not just use a paper bag for that purpose. Don’t forget to look into her eyes while you give her the gift with love.

Some great lingerie gifting ideas include- Sheer babydolls with thongs, multi-piece lingerie, and robe set where you can play with several layers, a bralette or boy shorts set in lace or satin or even a stringy satin bikini. Whatever you choose, it should be a piece that suits the body type of your wife and she should not be uncomfortable wearing it. Remember, you want your wedding night to be an experience that you cherish for life.
