I personally wouldn’t do this, but I think it’s beautiful.

I think some of these bees are missing the point – the pictures aren’t of you AND your girls together. You all together as a group and take individual pictures. I’m planning on asking two of my bridesmaids if they want to do this with me. A little wine, some sexy lingerie, and my 2 best friends seems like a great girls night and a great gift for my groom and for my best friends FIs. My groom won’t get pics of my two best friends and my two best friend’s FIs won’t get pics of me. 

Overall, it sounds like a great idea, both for us and the photographer 🙂

I think it’s ok for the bride to take boudoir pics for her man, but NOT ok to include bridesmaids… unless they’re swingers, I guess lol

I can’t say I’ve ever considered this or would ever consider it, but I suppose to each their own. If that’s your style, if you’re into that kind of media or into burlesque, then go for it.  Personally, I’m a bit horrified at the idea, so I wouldn’t try it.  It just seems a bit weird to me.

Boudoir Session. yes. Boudoir Session with friends? Hell no.

I agree with PP, Why would I want to give my husband photos of my half naked friends?

This is what we are doing for my bachelorette party! We are taking a limo downtown and getting a makeover all together then you take your pictures separatley.. I don’t see what the problem is everyone is having with this. My girls and I all think it’s gonna be fun!

I’ve never heard of this and think it’s super strange. My bridesmaids are my sister and my two FSILs. I just don’t know what I’d do with half naked pictures of us. Definitely wouldn’t give it to the groom. Not to mention how awkward it would be taking the pictures together!

@Kafrine:  If you’re taking the pictures seperately I think it’s perfectly fine! Sounds like a fun idea for a bachelorette party. But taking group pictures together boudoir style would definitely be weird for me. But then again I’m not super close with my BMs.

@LovelyLee:  I think all of the places that offer it make it sound like you are taking them together but they just mean you are at the studio together and get your makeover together. Everyone I looked at says you take the pics separatly for privacy. I don’t knlw if some people are reading it wrong or if there are really places that take pictures together but I’ve never heard of that lol

Group boudoir photos? No! Just…. no no no no no no! Not for me! 

If the photos are a gift for my future husband, why would I want him to look at naughty pictures of anyone else but me?!? 

On top of that, I wouldn’t feel comfortable taking such intimate phtos with other women. I love my friends but we’re not very touchy-feely and I’m a 100% sure they would think I’ve gone nuts if I suggested a photoshoot like that.

Boudoir photoshoots are a great idea and wonderful gifts for grooms who may not want anything specific or already have everything but I would only do an individual one!

@Kafrine:  Ohh, yeah that makes way more sense than taking pictures together. Though I can still see some people being uncomfortable with it I think that going together and taking pictures seperately is definitely more acceptable.

@Kafrine:  Oh, I may have read it wrong then! I would be fine with having hair and make up done together and have the pictures taken separately. But the article is full of pictures of women in underwear hugging each other so I thought that’s what it meant by “group boudoir photos”. I would find that very awkward! But having some fun in good company while doing your hair and make up is a great idea 🙂

One of my friends just did this for her friend’s birthday. 8 of them got together, drank in lingerie and had a wannabe photographer take pictures of them individually and as a group! I was so weirded out when she was telling me about it, the group shots are a troubling idea to me. Also, the photographer was a random person they met on Facebook..
