5 Reasons Every Bride Should Do a Boudoir Shoot

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because the reality is finally better than your dreams.”- Dr Seuss

Getting Married? Congratulations on one of the most exciting times in your life! Get ready to jump on the roller coaster of wedding planning which involves invite picking, envelope licking, cake tasting (yes please!), DJ or band hiring- yes this is a long roller coaster!

One thing that happens is you forget to take time for you- and sometimes soon to be partner. A boudoir shoot is a perfect way to capture some time for you when it feels like you have been going through the corkscrew of planning far too long. The best part? It’s self car that keeps giving back- to your confidence, self esteem, and your relationship. It is LITERALLY the best wedding gift you can give- to the both of you and here’s 5 reasons why.

This one’s for you

An upcoming wedding is the perfect time to celebrate all that is uniquely you. Chances are you are doing some self pampering: a little mani/pedi perhaps? Take time to show it off with a specialized boudoir session! Build that confidence and self esteem all while getting in touch with that inner sex goddess you may have forgotten about.

A little treat for them

You’ve searched and searched and now you found your person. How often do you get to give them a gift that will put that stupid adorable somewhat shocked look on their face? A fine art boudoir album is great for so many reasons: it is the perfect way to spice things up a bit and what an amazing keepsake of this time in your lives. I’d say that’s a win in the gift department!

An excuse to shop? Absolutely!

Ok, not all of us are shoppers at heart (this girl right here) but you probably have friends that do. So plan a fun day of shopping, you and the girls, to relax and forget about all the wedding planning. Bonus is you will have your amazing tribe to give you great feedback and will get to unwind a bit!

Explore your Options

In a perfect world, we would have all taken the Lingerie 101 class but alas, that class doesn’t exist. Even after looking through all those magazines, chance are you probably haven’t hunkered down and picked your fav style yet. A boudoir session gives you a chance to try many different styles and discover your ideal style. I even wrote about 5 different styles here to help get you started.

Preserve those wedding memories

Have you ever heard the saying “in 20 years you’ll regret what you didn’t do, not what you did”? Take this chance to capture this moment in a completely different way. Yes you will have the smiling photos at the altar and some with Grandma Rose, but will any of those capture the passion you have right now? Let me tell you, I’m crossing the 20 year mark with my husband and it’s hard to remember. YOU ARE WORTH IT! When you look back, you will thank yourself and never regret investing in you and your marriage so early on.
