Some like it sweet, and some like it hot! When it comes to wedding-night lingerie, everyone has different tastes. From cute and classic to fifty shades of grey status, there is a a style out there for every bride. We tapped lingerie aficionado Antonia Townsend, founder of Enclosed, to find out what your wedding night skivvies say about you.

Bridal Corset With Garter Suspenders
Nice during the day and naughty at night! You're the ultimate good girl gone bad. As a teen you spent many an afternoon thumbing through the mass-market lingerie catalogues from Victoria's Secret and Macy's just dreaming of this evening, details Townsend. "This is the moment you've been waiting for. Now, let's hope your honey shares your fantasy."

Totally Sheer, Ruffled Romper
No need to sacrifice comfort for fashion. You're consistently chic and right on trend, whether you're in the bedroom or hitting the town. "You're the savvy bride that knows that sheer numbers are always stylish and alluring," notes Townsend. "Not to mention flattering on all shapes and sizes. A waft of chiffon, and your new spouse is captivated!"

An Evening Gown-Esque Lingerie Dress
One dress wasn't enough for you, was it? Hey, we don't blame you, glam goddesses! "You have a different outfit for each stage of the wedding weekend, and this for-his-eyes-only number makes you feel fashionable and confident like your usual self," says Townsend.

A Sweet Lace Camisole With Matching Panties
Sugar and spice and everything nice, or are you? "You're that rare breed that actually might be a virgin on this sacred wedding night," tells Townsend.

An Exquisite Leavers Lace Bra and Panty Set
Only the finest will do for this classic bride! "A traditionalist at heart, you realize beauty is in the details and will settle for nothing less than the best, intricate lacy number for your wedding night," predicts Townsend. "While it may feel awkward to think about, you know your mother would approve."

The Shapewear Girdle Contraption You Wore Under Your Dress
Bubbly and outgoing, you're the girl whose social calendar is always chocked full of fun stuff. AKA you're the life of the party, and your wedding will certainly be no exception. As Townsend points out, you may not plan on passing out in your smooth-under-the-dress compression garment, but hey things happen, right? "The Sunday wedding brunch will definitely be a bit of a struggle."

A Bow-Backed Bunny Number
So you picked a saucy bow-backed style? Ow, ow! "You probably don't take yourself too terribly seriously," says Townsend. "You understand that lingerie is really all about the unwrapping, and you're ready to have some fun."
