Pre-wedding boudoir sexy photo session

Right before the holiday season last year, I discovered that my husband liked the idea of a boudoir photo session.  If only I had known this before we renewed our vows, I would have definitely surprised him with one.  Not only is this a really fun idea, but it would also make an unforgettable wedding gift for your groom that he will enjoy for a very long time. 

If you’re shy about showing off your curves, there are so many other poses that can be sexy without showing off too much… check these out.

One of my personal favorite poses is wearing just a veil to discretely cover your sexy wedding lingerie.  This pose will certainly set the tone.  Can you imagine texting him this image just before walking down the isle?  Fun… fun… fun

Using props that hold special value to your groom are also fun.  If he’s into Harley Davidson motorcycles, he will definitely love the image of you on his motorcycle wearing your wedding gown or maybe just you in your wedding lingerie on his bike.  If he’s a musician, using his instruments as part of the photo shoot will also be special.  Marrying a sports fanatic?  Throw on one of his favorite jerseys and show him that you care about the things he does.

Planning an Elegant Valentines Day Wedding

With so much love and commitment in the air, it’s no wonder why so many couples choose to get married on Valentine’s Day.  With that said, I’d figured I’d give you some tips on how to pull off a beautiful, romantic and colorful Valentine’s Day wedding.

First thing’s first, be prepared well in advance.  I’m not talking just one year in advance either.  There are a lot of couples looking to book their wedding on this particular day.  So not only will your preferred venue most likely already be booked up, but DJ’s , planners, bands, caterers will all be very busy during this holiday as well.  Be sure to book them more than a year in advance.

Want to incorporate some of the Valentine’s Day colors like red or pink in your dress, don’t be disappointed to learn that most traditional gowns do not include these colors.  But lucky for you, there’s always the custom gown option.  Add some pop of color to your hem or even the tulle underneath your gown and your guests will love the genuine idea.  Be sure to book your appointment at least 6 months in advance.

Here are some of my favorite ideas for attire and reception for a Valentine's Day Wedding.  You'll notice that deep reds are definitely my favorite.

You guessed it... I absolutely love the non-traditional colorful approach to shoes!!!
