Our top 10 favorite boudoir bridal outfits

There’s wedding bells in your future, you’ve booked your boudoir session. Now what to wear? To help inspire your looks, we’ve compiled some of our favorite bridal boudoir outfits from our archives.

1.  The “Grooms Shirt.” 

This is a classic option for your bridal boudoir session. Have a little fun sneaking it out of his closet and after he sees the pictures, he’ll never look at that shirt the same again.

2. Your Veil

Give your veil a little more playtime then just the wedding day. Using it during your session will evoke feelings of the day to come.

3. Lace on lace.

There’s something extremely feminine about lace. We love the look of it layered, like below.

4.  A silk robe.

Elegant and tasteful, a white silk or satin robe is a beautiful option for a bridal boudoir look. Not to mention, slipping it off to reveal what’s beneath makes for super steamy photos.

5. The white bodysuit.

Looking for an option with a little more edge for your bridal boudoir outfit? Try a white bodysuit.  The color clearly says bride-to-be, but there’s nothing virginal about this sexy number.

6. White bra and underwear beneath a cathedral veil. 

We love the simplicity of this set. The cathedral veil is the perfect addition. Try to wrap it around your frame while standing or lying on a bed for an even more romantic feel. bridal-boudoir-photos-12

7. Mix in a bit of color. 

While your inclination might be to go all white, don’t be afraid to add a bit of color for extra variety. The soft pink ribbon is a pretty detail on this bodysuit. bridal-boudoir-photos-11

8. How about nothing at all?

With the right pose, going bare beneath the texture of a tulle veil will make for a tasteful image that your spouse-to-be will never forget.

9. Your bridal shoes. 

We love when clients bring in their bridal shoes. It’s the perfect opportunity to get a little more mileage out of them and also a subtle nod to your wedding day.

11. Bonus!! Don’t forget your garter!

Besides your veil, not much else says bride (well maybe the dress) like your garter. Incorporate yours for a fun and flirty look. bridal boudoir outfits
