You've found the dress, booked a (hopefully inoffensive) DJ, tied ribbons to what feels like 10,000 mason jars and organised a seating plan that won't result in World War III. Well done—you've planned a wedding with your sanity intact (just about). Now it's a week before the big day and you're suddenly experiencing an influx of last-minute admin panic—covering everything from the logistics of moving suitcases from the venue to picking up some "just in case" paracetamol to stuff in your clutch bag.
Deciding what to wear the night of your wedding is one such task that is usually left until the last moment (it's hardly the most pressing thing on your mind). But whether you're a classic, long-sleeved pyjama kind of gal or a slinky-slip lover, after a long day of nuptials, dining and dancing, it will be nice to know that you have something nice to slip into when you finally climb into bed. After all, it's your wedding, and you'll wear pretty pyjamas if you want to.
If you've already had a quick look around, you'll know that a large proportion of the bridal nightwear isn't exactly fashion girl–friendly. Of course, if you want to go to town and wear a kimono emblazoned with "Just Married" on the back, all power to you, but some of us just want something uncomplicated that will make us feel comfy and confident. So I thought I'd help tick one thing off your to-do list and round up the best bridal nightwear buys that are anything but tacky. Scroll down to see and shop my edit.
