If you’ve been tasked with hosting a lingerie party for a soon-to-be bride (or groom), you might be asking yourself, “What exactly is a lingerie party?” Also called a lingerie shower, these pre-wedding parties are a fun and sexy way to help a newlywed build the intimate side of their trousseau.1
But when it comes to planning one of these memorable parties, where do you start?
Fortunately, we’re here to help with 6 lingerie party ideas that will have you on the road to a knockout event. So, read on if you’re looking for lively, lacy, and luxurious ideas for a bride or groom lingerie party.
One of the best (and most fun) ways to ensure you create a memorable event for your friend is to organize the party around a theme that suits their style. Start by asking yourself a few questions about your friend:

By choosing a theme, you take a little more of the guesswork out of choosing a venue and menu. Considering what type of location, food, and drinks will best match your theme will help you narrow down your options, stay organzied, and give your lingerie party a professionally-planned feel.
Your party can happen just about anywhere…as long as it’s private or caters to an adults-only crowd. Remember, this event is centered on sexy underthings, so pick a venue where casual passerbys (paticularly children) aren’t gawking at your guests.
Some excellent choices for a lingerie party venue are:

Communicating the party details with your guest list is crucial to making the event a success. However, communicating the party details in a way that’s classy, cutesy, or X-rated? That just adds to the fun of planning and gets your guest list even more excited for the big day.
While your invitations can be paper or email, it should include both essential information and helpful hints.
The essential information your invitations should include is:
Because one-size-fits-all doesn’t work for most high-end lingerie, it’s vital that you share the bride’s (or groom’s) measurements with your guests. Here’s a sample to help you start crafting the right sizing language for your invitation:
Sharon is registered at Gooseberry.
In bras, she wears a 34B.
In panties, pajamas, and bodysuits, she wears a small.
You don’t want to give away all your fun lingerie party ideas on the invitation, but you do need to inform your guests what to wear to a lingerie party. For most wedding-related parties, this means announcing a dress code like casual, cocktail, or garden. However, in the case of a lingerie party, some hosts might ask guests to wear lingerie or pajamas to the party themselves.
The real fun of a lingerie shower is watching the soon-to-be bride or groom unwrap their sexy, elegant, and naughty new gifts. But before you get to that, be prepared to lead a few fun games and activities to help loosen up the crowd and get the laughter going.
Ideas for lingerie party games that are a twist on traditional party games are:
Your guests will likely put quite a bit of thought and money into their gift, so having a thoughtful takeaway for them will show your love and appreciation. Depending on your budget, you can consider gifting your guests:
Good manners never go out of style, so remember to follow the event by sending each and every guest a thank you card from both yourself and the soon-to-be bride or groom.
As the party planner, you should take the lead in writing the card and addressing the envelopes, since this can be a busy and stressful time for the wedding party. However, be sure to have the bride or groom sign the cards as well for a personal touch.
Although lingerie parties can include a lot of fun and laughter, ultimately, the goal of the party is to provide your friend with sexy undergarments to take into their honeymoon and first days of marriage.
