Traditionally, a boudoir is a private set of rooms set apart from the bedroom for the specific purpose of getting dressed and making oneself as beautiful and ladylike as possible.
With that in mind, this romantic bridal boudoir inspiration board is a celebration of all things elegant and feminine: pastel colors, delicate lace & tulle, ribbon, perfume, sweet little flowers, and beautiful jewels – all of which would make for a simply breathtaking boudoir shoot.
When it comes to having a boudoir shoot before your wedding – I’ll always vote for classy. Keep it elegant and refined just like your big day. Make use of natural light if you can and if not, people always look amazing under candlelight.
Find inspiration in the historical use of the boudoir and include things like your perfume bottle, jewelry, love letters, vintage handheld mirrors, feminine accessories, and sweet refreshments. It really doesn’t get any more romantic than that!
