Intimate Honeymoon Desserts
By Aimee Guthinger
Temptations from your own custom lingerie dessert cart
It’s a matter of fact that Brides visiting my lingerie boutique on Cape Cod will often find themselves talking about their wedding plans. As a former wedding planner, I think I’ll never lose my curiosity about the next big event! So, when I found myself chatting with a bride earlier this summer about her menu, I was delighted to hear something that, to me, was very original! This bride was not talking about her wedding reception dinner menu, but her honeymoon dessert cart menu and, the ingredients were lingerie!
You may be aware of the popular pairing of lingerie and desserts at bridal showers, but this is the first time I have ever heard of a bride selecting her honeymoon lingerie with specific dessert names in mind; her sole intent to create an actual menu from which her groom may choose his after dinner desire each evening. Seriously, how cool is this idea? I think it takes those cheesy love coupons to a whole new level and allows the lingerie itself to become woven into the newlywed’s intimate life, even after they arrive home.
Now, if there is one factor inhibiting lingerie purchases, it’s about how long the garment will be worn versus the cost. For many brides, it’s not so much about the price, but more often whether they want to make purchases they view as single wear items. The Dessert Menu plan is actually brilliant as it addresses that very concern. It becomes a way for the groom to request additional helpings in the future of those intimate treats he was so deliciously served on his honeymoon. The lingerie becomes an investment.
