You've already stunned your new spouse once today with the unveiling of the dress. Now show off what's underneath with a sexy wedding night strip show — sporting lingerie you've always wanted to splurge on but never had the right reason until now. What better excuse to buy those once-in-a-lifetime racy little numbers than for the grand disrobing during your first night as a married couple? Here are a few Miami spots to shop for your wedding-night lingerie.

The only La Perla boutique in Florida is at the super luxe Bal Harbour Shops (Miami's Madison Avenue that calls celebs like Beyoncé, J. Lo, and Justin Timberlake regulars), so shopping for lingerie here is just as much of an experience as actually wearing it. La Perla lingerie may cost a pretty penny, but it's worth it for the Italian craftsmanship alone. Brides who don't mind splurging on their wedding night sous-vêtements will find everything from lace cut-out bodysuits to silk- and tulle-embellished robes inspired by styles from the early 1900s for a sexy-yet-demure way to cover everything up.
Cosabella South Beach
The cozy South Beach flagship boutique knows just want brides-to-be are looking for on their wedding night, with a whole collection of "wedding white" catering just to the occasion, from the most delicate criss-cross bralets to lace garters that throw your "something blue" right in front — in the form of the most adorable little bow.
L.A. Boudoir Miami
Who needs a boudoir photo shoot when you can rock the look live? Vintage hotspot L.A. Boudoir is stocked with a number of sexy pin-up girl pieces — and even burlesque fans if you really want the full-on look — but don't worry if you can't find just the style you had in mind. Owner Lauren Arkin can design and craft the custom piece you've been dreaming of so you can sport your "something new" on your wedding night.
Oh Là Là Chéri Paris
There's a reason why the French are synonymous with sexy, and Oh Là Là Chéri's Parisian-born designer knows just the way to bring this foreign sensuality stateside. Take your pick of one-of-a-kind pieces that can be just as risqué as you like, from crotchless lace teddies to embroidered bridal thongs with blue rhinestones and the tiniest of trains in the back.
The brand started just over a decade ago with the mindset that the "layer worn next to the heart should express happiness, love, and confidence," three qualities that describe just how a new bride should feel on her wedding night. Swing by the Sunset Harbour shop in between pre-wedding workouts at nearby Barry's and FlyBarre and stock up on a wedding night wardrobe that is heavy enough on the sex appeal without going overboard. Among the racy goodies include "something blue" weaved into ruffle thongs, chemises, and cross-over teddies that add just the right amount of playfulness your wedding night deserves.
