Hey ladies. I wanted to ask you something. I have an opportunity to get a boudoir shoot done for my wedding. Should I go for it? I am not as bold as I wish I was for this kind of thing.

I have been so graciously given this opportunity and I want to know more about what it involves. So, I would love to hear your opinions on this and and talk to you!

    Go for it. As soon as I'm at a happy weight and happy with my body I want to do one.

    Go for it!! I’m doing a boudoir shoot (have already begun finding lingerie for it!) and getting prints as a wedding present. My friends who have gotten them said they were really fun and body positive experiences. I’m hoping for the same from mine!

    I got a few things (white satin babydoll top & undies, and black lace kimono) from Victoria’s Secret. They were/are having a lingerie sale.

    I also tried a really cheap lace set but it was terrible quality so I’m gonna return it and get something of better quality.

    If you’re given the opportunity, I’d take it. I’m pretty shy myself but these people are used to getting all kinds of women in front of the camera. It’s their job to make you feel comfortable. I’ve thought about doing one but my hold up is more the price

    I've decided to do one. Im super shy and wanted to suprise my fh with something he wouldn't expect. I went to a wedding festival recently and they had a half off deal so I went for it. I was even sent some websites they recommended but Ive already started buying things from amazon. All in all im nervous but also excited!

    I did a photo shoot for my 1st husband for Valentine’s Day one year, before boudoir shots were really a thing. It was on the tamer side of sexy, but he still enjoyed the pics and they made a great gift. It was held at the local hair salon, so they did my hair & makeup too. I bought my outfit from the Macy’s lingerie section.

    I did one and am so excited to be giving it to my fiancé in may! I actually wore bra and panties with the robe I'm using on our wedding day and one of his dress shirts. I wanted to make it sexy but low key. Shutterfly also has awesome books you can make and print!

    I have not done one, yet, but I would say do it! I plan on doing one once it gets a little closer to my wedding. The photographer I will be using is also shooting our wedding. She shot my friends wedding, and my friend did a boudoir shoot with her also. I mentioned that I was nervous, and she told me that our photographer is super relaxing, brings wine, and just makes you feel really comfortable. I think that's the most important thing. I'm not 100% happy with my body but I'm hoping that I'll loosen up once things get rolling.
