Bride in lingerie.

A bride fetish is a sexual fetish in which either a woman (or possibly a man) enjoys dressing in the typical outfit worn by a bride, or someone derives sexual pleasure from viewing women (or possibly men) dressed in this manner.

A bride may be regarded as the archetype of a virgin ready and waiting to have sexual intercourse. A bridal outfit can be considered to be full of fetishistic imagery. Brides often wear lingerie such as basques or corsets, stockings and thongs; they also wear stiletto shoes. Generally, a bridal dress and lingerie are white or nearly white, denoting purity. For a transvestite, bridal wear may be the ultimate female apparel.


In Western culture, brides typically wear white wedding dresses, a tradition established by Queen Victoria. The white dress was once considered a symbol of purity, though present-day brides may wear white, cream, or ivory dresses, regardless of their number of marriages.

Traditional wedding ceremonies are usually attended by a party of bridesmaids, typically young women of marriageable age. Often close friends or blood relatives, they traditionally "serve" the bride from the morning of the wedding through to conclusion of the festivities.
