While he attempts to add some extra letters to his title， you can add a prized possession to his life.

Not all bridal lingerie has to be traditional white. Colorful bridal lingerie is not only playful, but it's the perfect way to infuse some personality into your under-the-dress ensemble. Think: a sexy powder blue slip for an unexpected "something blue," or a pop of pastel pink to break away from the norm. While your wedding day undergarments should be functional (read: supportive and slimming), feel free to experiment and have a little fun with your wedding night getup!
