This year I have become slightly more involved with plans for my younger sister’s impending wedding, due to my status as bridesmaid. There’s nothing much I can really do to help out, as she has it all well under control, but I do like suggesting fun or vintage-style touches that she might want to add to her day. You can never have too much pretty stuff, right? So it was with all of this in mind that I showed up at yesterday’s Playful Promises, Kiss Me Deadly and Ayten Gasson Lingerie press afternoon in the rather decadent surroundings of Volupté.
As I entered the room, I was greeted by the sight of extremely beautiful Ayten Gasson silk and lace lingerie in shades of cream, paired with a gorgeous selection of handmade one-off bridal garters. Each silk garter is trimmed with a selection of vintage Nottingham lace and hand tied bows, plus no two are the same so it’s the perfect unique touch for a wedding outfit. I noted the details to pass on to my sister and moved on to the Kiss Me Deadly range of vampy vintage-inspired lingerie and shapewear.
You might not thing there would be anything for a traditional wedding here, but you’d be wrong. As well as a camis, French knickers and teddies that look suitable for a sexy yet relaxed wedding night, there is the Vargas dress that would be splendidly smoothing under a wedding gown, plus more pale-coloured shapewear that is to follow later in the year. Finally, I delved into the delights that Playful Promises had to offer. The thing that stood out most for me here was a potential hen party idea… their gift sets would be ideal for a little pressie for all the girls staying in the hotel, and they even have one for the bride-to-be!
These three companies all offer something quite different and are well worth checking out if you are sick of wearing the same boring high street lingerie. The quality is excellent and the designs are superb, which is more than can be said for many more expensive lingerie brands! Of course, as well as looking for wedding-related items, I was also adding to my own wish list. It can’t hurt, right?
