These are difficult times, for certain. The cancellation of a wedding pales compared to the flood of fear, but still, when a girl has a serious dream and must wake up to reality, it can be disconcerting. Planning tirelessly for the big day is a great deal of the process: dress, flowers, venue, music, guests. It’s all about the anticipation culminating in one exquisite moment and a lifetime of memories. Maybe at this very disconcerting juncture in our lives right now, a bit of fantasy could be a welcome distraction.
That’s why today, we are featuring the indie bridal brand Girl and a Serious Dream. I must admit that this post was, coincidentally, on my editorial calendar, but little did I know how prescient it might be as a mood lifter. The story behind the brand is a journey of hope and the bridal lingerie featured here is breathtaking, a bit of repose for a heavy heart.… ...Read more

Nightgown or wedding gown? Does it matter? Here at Lingerie Briefs we’ve discussed the fine line between lingerie and bridal design on several occasions, with their similarities being a heavy dose of femininity, the use of gorgeous laces, and their overall elegance. But there are some bridal designs that take the comparisons a step further; for instance corset detailing, slip dress silhouettes or the use of sheer (revealing) silk. One can’t deny the symbiosis of these two creative disciplines.
The following images are a selection of international designers who have incorporated the lingerie-inspired look into their creations. Each and every style is sensual, feminine and gives us a glimpse of skin…much like lingerie.
Do let us know which one is your favorite!

It’s definitely autumn in the Northeast: chilly nights, sun stroked days, rainy interventions, pumpkins and chrysanthemums everywhere. If I were getting married again, it would be my pick of the seasons for a wedding. One of the most memorable affairs I ever attended was held in a lodge in the Adirondack Mountains on Columbus Day.
