I’m considering this too and my pros and cons are about the same as yours. I’m still on the fence. And right now, being unemployed, I just can’t justify it. So maybe next year for our first anniversary.

If you have the money for it & Mr. Star would love it – I would definitely go for it!!  I would love to do one at some point. 

Do it!!  I don’t think of it as a narcisstic gift at all!

I didn’t have time/money do to this before the wedding, but I’m definitely going to do it for our one year anniversary!  But first, I have to lose about 20 pounds so I can feel sexy.  There’s a studio in Birmingham, Al (about 3 hours from here) that does vintage pinups.  He’ll like the vintage spin so much.  I’m really excited about it!

I think it’s a great idea…but my fiance didn’t seem crazy about the idea. I’m not sure how to take that. 🙂 But my photographer is REALLY good at it! (http://www.audreysnowphotography.com)

I love the idea and want to do it for an anniversary present soon. My husband would really like them I think.

I say go for it!  It’s something I think would be awesome to do, but it wasn’t in our budget and my hubby wasn’t big on the idea, so I just kinda forgot about it.

I JUST did this three days ago!  My love is in IRAQ until August and I will be going to see him in GA when he comes back (he’ll still be in GA until next MAY AHH! :)) SO I did this as a gift to give him before I come back to CA… it is very expensive but I say go for it-I was so nervous about it and still am because I haven’t seen the photos yet, but the experience actually made me feel like I grew as a person and I (HOPE) that he will love them… he will 😉 Plus, VS is having their semi annual sale!!!

I think you should do it if you think he’ll like it.  Honestly I’m not sure how Mr. M would feel about it if I did it.

@crabcake – me too! I think it’s great 1st anniversary present, ’cause the 1st anniversary is paper! Plus, it gives me a little time to save up after all those crazy wedding expenses….

I think it’s silly that women feel weird to be proud of pictures of themselves looking hot. It’s not vain at all to say "I’m proud of who I am!" Go Star, do them!

I plan on doing them too. I think it is a great idea for the reasons you stated (except the cost of course haha). My only thing is Mr. HoneyBunny is in Afghanistan for a year and we are getting married when he gets back during the summer. I just can’t decide if to give him the pictures (when I get them made) on the wedding day as per usual or before while he is still in Afghanistan. I mean, if I was a dude in a tent with 40 other dudes I would want some sexy pictures of my girl.  So yeah I am still deciding about that but I think it is a great idea for you Star.

Plus, it is a great excuse to buy even more lingerie! Yeahhhh, my lingerie fiend is jumping for joy at the idea haha.

My husband LOOOOVED them. He still refers to it as ‘the best gift ever.’

I think every woman should do a boudoir shoot–it’s great for your self-esteem and awesome for your man.

You’ll regret it if you don’t do it!
