While you were busy fussing about even the most minute detail of your wedding day look, you probably forgot about some very important attire accoutrements: your bridal lingerie. We definitely get it — dress aside, there is a lot to think about.

That being said, gone are the days when ordinary skivvies will do the trick come wedding night. But brides, fear not, because the options are on your side this time around. Ahead, designers like Erin Fetherston, For Love & Lemons, and Claire Pettibone have you covered with everything from lace bodysuits to ethereal robes and on-trend bralettes. Bottom line: the boudoir (or honeymoon suite) is about to get a whole lot steamier.

Claire Pettibone's bespoke lace-edge robe is pretty much as elegant as it gets. Its illusion silhouette will ensure you look seriously feminine (in a totally sexy way) all honeymoon long. But wait, ready for the kicker? This beauty is actually embellished with Swarovski crystals. It's the perfect bridal splurge.

For the bride who wants something that's equal parts sexy and sweet, it doesn't get better than Fleur du Mal's soft lace babydoll chemise. The flash of powder blue, the detailed scalloped hem, the sweetheart neckline: Brides and non-brides alike should consider adding this lingerie staple to the mix.

The word "nightgown" has such a stigma. And we'll fully admit that whenever we hear it, our minds go to a dark, dark place on par with (but not surpassed by) fuzzy slippers, grandma robes, and oversized flannel. Thank goodness Alingerie has changed the game with their take on a sultry tulle bridal nightgown that's as devastatingly sweet as it gets.

Our list wouldn't be complete without at least one, ahem, thong, but we're opting for a more delicate, bridal twist with this satin staple by For Love & Lemons. Part of a matching collection, the Yours Truly thong is perfect for the wedding night and beyond.

In one fell swoop, you can pick up a piece that will function as getting-ready gear and lingerie. An effortlessly sexy robe covers the gamut and should probably be a staple in every girl's intimates collection. We're all about it. (Hey, we like to hoard pretty lingerie. No judgements, please!)

YEOW is all that can be said about this black lace bodysuit from the always-dependable H&M. The details are good — think cross back straps and s-e-x-y mesh paneling — but it somehow gives off an understated feel. Okay, actually we do have one more thing to say about it: YAY. Because this little number will only set you back a measly 25 bucks.

Blush guipure (don't worry, we had to look it up, too) lace in an abstract floral pattern give this underwire bra a totally feminine feel.

Where a little cuteness meets a lot of spice, you'll find this lace flower chemise by Hanky Panky. Keeping it bridal in sheer, brilliant white, we say this pretty ditty would make a great gift for the bride-to-be.
