Eight Wardrobe Ideas for Your Bridal Boudoir Photos:

1. Sports apparel boudoir photos.

“Does your fiance love sports? Impress him with boudoir photos of you in nothing but a jersey from his favorite team and cute undies!”

For inspiration, take a look at the fan sports apparel that Amazon has to offer.

2. A simple sweater or cami boudoir photos.

“Don’t feel like you have to wear lingerie. An open blazer or a loose-knit sweater with nothing underneath can be just as sexy and it leaves more to the imagination”

“You don’t have to be wearing white – I love the added drama of using the wedding night lingerie that could be your something blue, or another added pop of color that you might be using as a wedding color.”

“Sure, many of your photos will include sexy lingerie. Why not shift things up for your boudoir photos by wearing something nontraditional, such as an over-sized white business shirt and his favorite tie (possibly one you gave him as a gift)? Hot!”

“Make your boudoir photo shoot personal. Bring things that mean something to you, or to you both as a couple. Your veil, your garter, your wedding shoes, a special piece of jewelry that he gave to you… all of this can really make the boudoir photos special.”

Brooke Summer Photography

“Consider including items such as masks, see-through fabrics, unique-looking hats, high heels, necklaces, etc. in your boudoir shoot. Use your imagination and dream big!”

Angelica Roberts Photography

“Don’t be afraid to use your veil for more than one day – it can add a powerful prop to play with that also means a lot to you. Think about your other wedding day details, such as shoes and jewelry also – they add personality and another special touch when looking back at your images.”
