Get properly fitted for a bra, it makes the world of difference. Debenhams, John Lewis, M&S (or if, like me, you are more generously proportioned, Bravissimo) all have bra-fitting services. That way you know what your options are. Then look at your dress, some lingerie just won't work with a strapless or backless or sheer dress. Consider your budget too. Nobody minds spending a bit of extra money on underwear for your special day, but personally I'm not prepared to pay £150 for a pair of designer pants! Hope this helps! :)

Definitely get a proper bra fitting and think about the style of your dress. This is the bit I am dreading! Haha

I got mine from pour moi as I have very large boobs plus I was pregnant and I needed strapless! Bra, silk pants and a garter belt came to 45 quid I felt amazing!

Go with what’s comfy

If you want something pretty for the evening, get changed afterwards 😀

I had a bra built into my dress, so comfortable. Wear comfy big knickers as you won't be able to pull out a wedgie from wearing skinny knickers with a big dress on. You can always put sexy undies in a draw next to your bed. To be honest though, my new husband and I were exhausted at the end of our big day and he never got to see my undies anyway 😂. I would recommend glucose tablets to eat during the day as my energy levels plummeted many times and I wish I had thought of them. Your day will be lovely, I'm sure ❤

Depends on what your issues are. Do u need a bra as a lot of dresses it's unnecessary, are you big, small, etc. Don't stress though, worst case go for what you're comfy in. And 5 weeks!!! Have an amazing day (I'm 12 weeks to go and having the weirdest dreams lol) x

Go sexy lace under your dress
It will make you feel amazing and it’s a big hit with your man when you get back to your hotel suite

My dress has a built in support so I'm only worrying about undies! I'll take the tip of glucose tablets though! :)

Marks and Spencer’s. They will fit you and if you tell them what you need (ie strapless, low back etc ..) they will even help you pick some out to try on xx

Wear something comfortable, you will be in it all day and the last thing you want is some boned corset or suchlike digging in you.
