I am seriously considering doing a boudoir shoot for my fh but I have no idea what to wear for a shoot like that. Not to mention that I am nervous just thinking about it. For you ladies who have already done a shoot, how did you get over the nerves? Was it awkward? Also, any ideas you can throw my way about things I could wear would be great. I would love any advice!

And If anyone is comfortable enough, please share from your shoot! I need the inspiration! Feel free to DM me.

Thanks for your help ladies

    I wore some of my favorite lingerie from Victoria’s Secret. It wasn’t really awkward, it was just like put your hand here, look at that wall, just instructions to follow. Most of the pics turned out great.

    Definitely meet with your photographer and make sure you are comfortable with her. I was really nervous about it when I first contacted my photographer, but after meeting with her, I'm super excited to work with her! Most of my Inspiration has actually come from her boudoir blog, but I definitely want to do something with my veil like one of these. Google and pinterest has tons of ideas!

    I'm hoping to do one, but it maybe after our wedding. If so, he'll get the photos for our wedding reception a few months later. I've become ill and now I can't wear most of the cute things I'd bought. So I pray I can wear them. One thing I found at David's Bridal online, didn't realize they had lingerie, was a gorgeous vintage inspired garter belt and bra set. It's in a gorgeous ivory lace. The garter belt is on a 1930 or 40's design. It's all lace with pink ribbons, matching bra, and thong. I also bought ivory lace top thigh high stockings elsewhere. I would suggest to try to buy things you love so you feel beautiful and that will make you more comfortable. Have fun!!!

    My fiancé won me a lux boudoir session and I’m super nervous for it! They had good advice and pictures on their website. I bought some VS lingerie and a long veil for pictures like the ones posted. I’m going to get my wedding garter early and use that as well as a small bouquet to hold, maybe something of my fiancé’s too. To feel my best I’m getting my pre wedding haircut done that day and having them spend a little extra time styling it and touching up my makeup.

    Lace bodysuits look amazing in boudoir shoots. Things like sheer tops, sheer robes, lacey thongs, loose fitting tanks etc all look really good. I find that neutral colors look really good but if you want bold colors then do that! You can do a boudoir shoot with pretty much anything. Everything I wore for my shoot was sheer but I regret not getting some shots that were fully nude or at least topless but now I just have excuse to do another one next year lol. It’s not as awkward as you think it is, these photographers do this all the time!

    I’m doing one at the end of this summer (after my lingerie shower) and I’m planning on wearing blacks/neutrals that are sheer or lacy. I’ve been looking on Pinterest for inspiration and also definitely plan on getting several in white with my veil (it’s going to be long) and I’m super excited!

    Also I was told that bringing something of my FH’s would help too whether it’s a shirt he loves or a Knick knack, something to pose with of his. I’ll probably steal FH’s white button up (he’s a manager at BBW and his dress code is white shirts/jeans) and button just one or two with a lace thong

    Mine is this weekend!!! I'm definitely doing one with my wedding night lingerie and veil. And I had bought a few new things as well. It helps that my photographer doing mine is married to my cousin.. and I may do a shot of liquor or two before.. I'm sure it will help if you find things to wear that make you feel comfortable and beautiful! Your fh is going to love it! Mine is not expecting this. He has told me before that there is no way I would ever do this but he is going to get a big surprise the morning of the wedding!

    I wont! I dont want to look like a mess! But I am nervous to! But I want to surprise him. I know it will blow him away if I do it. I never thought of wearing one of his shirts. But that is also a really good idea! I hope you find things that you love and rock that photo shoot!
