Lingerie Shower

Everyone wants to look cute at every possible second of their honeymoon, but we don't all want to go out and spend a bunch of money on items that might only be worn a handful of times.  (Honesty here, ladies.)  So, having a lingerie shower is the perfect excuse to stock up on pretty nighties that you don't have to pay for yourself!

We like to incorporate the lingerie shower into the bachelorette party because this typically only involves your close friends.  In other words, you mom, grandma and mother-in-law won't be there to look horrified and cause your face to turn 6 different shades of red.  

If you would like to include a lingerie shower during the bachelorette party, be sure to specify it in your invitation.  We even found some cute lingerie themed invites on Pinterest.

Be sure to also let the girls know the bride's sizes so she doesn't have to do a million returns and subsequently inform the salesperson that her crotchless panties are too big.  (If our moms are reading this, we're just kidding!)

Now on that note, we think it's perfectly acceptable - and encouraged - to get the bride some comfy, more realistic sleepwear as well.  Our friend Desiree' got each of us one of these adorable customized hoodies:



Of course we wouldn't throw any shower without incorporating some special treats.  Check out our lingerie and animal print cookies, both made with heart-shaped cookie cutters!





At our friend Emily's bachelorette party, we also learned a really fun lingerie-themed game.  As she opened each gift, we would collectively come up with a name for the item.  Needless to say, the names got pretty ridiculous as each gift was opened, ranging from Black Lightning to Jumanji.  Whoever is responsible for writing down the gifts also needs to write down the name of each piece of lingerie.  Then, when the bride goes on her honeymoon she can bring the list with her and ask her new hubby to pick which lingerie he wants her to wear each night by selecting a name off the list.  Sure, it might take the romance out of their moment, but who cares, it’s hilarious.  

We think the lingerie shower is pretty much a no-brainer for any and all bachelorette festivities.  What are some of your favorite lingerie gifts?

Happy Planning,
