absolutely it’s what i want to do!!!!! and i’m fat in some places but i am hoping creative posing can help me out with that one lol!!!!!  if i were you i’d take a look at poses etc that you like and go from there.  you can also put a small note on the package saying only to be opened in private so that he knows no one else is to see, you know?

I’m under the impression this is a pretty popular gift for brides to give to the groom on the morning of the wedding, but of course you might want to give the book at a more private time. If you feel like doing boudoir photos, then go for it! Many brides have a lot of fun with them. And if you do want to do them on the morning of, then of course you can have him open them in private, or make sure that the first few photos in the book are PG-rated.

im totally doing it!  i love our photographer and am totally comfortable with her.  Im also giving it to him the morning of the wedding, groomsmen and all.  i probably have a bit more nerve than most!  its kinda the whole, “wow, you have a hot wife with some serious nerve!” i also know that that my  husband is private enough not to show it around or anything.

I’m doing it too and have no idea when to give it to him! We live in NYC and our wedding is in Philly and we’ll be going straight to our honeymoon from Philly without dropping anything off in NY. So what happens to the album? I guess I could always tell my Mom about it and ask her to hold onto it, she’s cool like that. But Fiance and I are very conservative and he would HATE the idea of his groomsmen seeing it, so I don’t know if the wedding morning is really the best time. One thought is to give it to him on the wedding night, like have it waiting in our room. But then we still have to do something with it while we’re gone. Ugh!

I’m doing them!  I’ll be giving the book to him after the reception actually.  he’ll be getting a decoy gift in the morning.

You don’t have to be naked. near naked, or even in lingerie to do b-pics.  You should wear whatever you’re comfortable in.  For me that means a short, spunky dress and killer heels.

I’m not going to do them. I think it is a great idea if you are a long distance couple or something, but I’m just thinking- why would he want to look at pictures when he could look at the real thing?

I’m a fan of them for self empowerment though.

I already had my boudoir shoot.  I plan to put them in an album and give to Fiance the night before the wedding.  So there’s no chance others will see it.

The shoot was very empowering plus your photographer knows how to take photos that compliment your specific body type.  (avoiding certain areas, highlighting others, what poses work best, etc).  If you trust your photographer’s talent, then GO FOR IT!! 

Also, my thought is that the way I look now is probably the best that I will ever look (babies and stretch marks will soon come). So capturing this moment in time became important to me too, not only as a gift to him, but something I can look back on as well.

@jennybirdy- I totally agree. I think if I did budoir photos, it would totally be for myself so I can say I was hot way back when!

I hid my book under his pillow the night before the wedding (I slept at my mom’s house) and told him to look there before he went to sleep.  The next time he saw me, I was walking down the aisle.  =)  I thought it worked out well.

I think I’ll be giving it to him during the honeymoon, since that is his gift to me and I want something pretty cool for him- when others won’t see it!!!
