I asked my Fiance about this idea when someone had a post a while back about being sad taht their partner didn’t appeciate it and he said he wouldn’t want me to do it. He said he wouldn’t like them and said it was because he much prefers me just being me rather than putting on make up (that I don’t normally wear) and ‘sexy’ underwear (that I also don’t normally bother with) to pose in ways I never would normally be in.

NOTLBride:  I am actually doing one this weekend, the pacakge is pretty affordable, there were some companies where the prices were just outrageous! I somehow brought it up in conversation without letting him know I am doing one and he said that he is “not into that stuff” so I am going to do it anyway for myself and just hold on it. Not sure if I will give it to him as a gift but I might just show him

NOTLBride:  I did it! Best experience ever! I felt amazing and Fiance loved his Christmas present. I was even able to get some shots with our prized possession, our Shelby Mustang. Came out beautiful. Id actually love to do it again!

futureMrs.Owens:  Same here, haha. He said he would rather I just get special lingerie and surprise him on our honeymoon! I kind of see the appeal with boudoir shoots, but all I do is think about someone accidentally finding it, my fiance not looking at it, and it just being stashed away. To each their own, at least I got my answer from my fiance 😛

I’d feel him out on it before going ahead with it, to make sure it’s the kind of thing he’d be into.

I feel badly for the women here who say their husband would laugh at them, etc if they did this : /

I actually just brought this up with Fiance this week… I was excited about the idea until I saw the price too!  If it was under $200, I probably could have done it and just gotten over the price.  I wanted a good quality photographer, the rights to my photos, and some cute outfits… $600 worth of goodies!  So I asked him and he told me that he didn’t see much use for them.  He said if I wanted to do it for myself, he’d suppor that but he’d rather just see me in a tshirt or comfy in our bed.  Maybe I’ll do them one day and he’ll just get to enjoy them too, but I can get a lot of fun lingerie for $600.  (Oh and I’ll never have to worry about if our kids/parents/the internet will find them. lol)

I did it and I had a great experience. It was pricy, but it’s worth it to do things like this during a special time like this in your life. lets say in the future you get pregnant, that’s also special, but you do necessarily want “sexy” type photos Of yourself in bridal-related garb? Probably not…

I haven’t given them to my Fiance yet (wedding is in April) but I made sure to do bridal outfits I loved and some special outfits I know he will be into. He’s into photography as well so I know he will appreciate quality pictures. That’s not his ONLY gift either but it’s a component.

I did them, but I won’t save them until the wedding (maybe I will have a nice one in the presents I will send him.) Do it for yourself- it is a blast, and just a way to celebrate your body. I really loved the result.

I did them and absolutely loved the experience.I agree that you definetely get what you pay for. I think it was about $900 for the session and a package of 20? prints. They turned out amazing! I am saving them for a present for him for the morning of the wedding, but I don’t expect him to pick up the book and look through it day to day. It was a great way to feel glammed up and sexy. No regrets! would do it again in a heartbeat.

I’ve talked about this previously with my Fiance, and he seemed to have more of an issue with the photographer not being male. He seemed keen to the idea of sexy photos just for him, but didn’t so much like the idea of me being in lingerie around another man to get them
