Lisa trust me when I say you will not regret it. I feel like a different person after doing this. Before my session I studied a lot of poses and tried them. I can't tell you how corny I felt ahahah but it paid of. FI caught me reading his Maxim magazine a few times and he looked very confused. Finally after the wedding I can explain why ahaha. However they do help you out to but if your practice before hand and look at poses you will see what works for you and it will bring out your personality. Like the one where I am on the chair I tried to lengthen myself out as much as possible lol

JoZee you will not regret it, they are amazing! this is what they do - if you do contact them tell them Jess McCann told you about them. I want them to know how much I love and support their work.

Thank you so much everyone for your wonderful compliments I was really nervouse about putting myself out there like that but I really wanted to share how amazing a session like this makes you feel. Seriously no matter what size or what you don't like about your self I bet you anything you will feel amazing if you do a boudoire session. Not to mention I think it tops any gift lol I keep teasing FI that for his gift is me wrapped in a bow ahahah well almost.....lol

wow, Jess  - wow, wow, WOW, totally agree with lisa #4 as the fav and with runningbride below - now EVERYONE on this forum wants a boudoir session! : ) thing is, I know my FI will want to be in the pics too, so maybe he and I can both do one together and I'll set up one for just me afterward on the DL.

 

ok, so DETAILS! how long was your session? how many outfit changes? Raw isn't an option for me (living in austin), so I'd like to gauge the session length etc in order to get enough. but if I need to wait for your planning write-up, that's fine, too.

 

thank you again for having the confidence and positive esteem to share those photos. they're fantastic and such a great idea for all of us. : )

lisa - both yoga and/or the elliptical would be great! also, if you haven't tried it before, bikram yoga is another idea. it's much more strenuous because it's done in a heated room (around 100 degrees and 40% humidity), but I've heard several first-hand accounts from runners who rehabed knee injuries doing it (even those who were told that only surgery would correct their issues). the first few sessions are SUPER hot and VERY sweaty, but you kinda get used to it. it's definitely not for everyone but can work wonders. : )

Jess - You look GORGEOUS!! OMG your pics are seriously stunning!! You look like you should be in a Maxim magazine!! Damn girl...I need to work out hardcore before I do this for my fiance!!

 

Lisa - I am so sorry to hear about your hives sad.gif Try to drink some tea and relax and just trust that everything will be amazing and wonderful! You are so close to your wedding day and once you get down there hopefully all this stress will just melt away! I bought an eliptical for my house online off of craigslist actually. A guy was selling one for a great price and to me it was way more affordable than buying a new one. I don't use it as much as I should but I plan on working out HARD before the big day!!

Hey, I'm not even a Royal bride, I just happened to stumble on your post doing a search. 

 

I just wanted to offer a tip from someone who has had a lot of hive issues in the past.  I had a terrible allergic reaction to an antibiotic. I had hives was all over my chest, back, neck and arms.

 

There is a homeopathic medicine called Antronex.  You can buy it online or at a health food store.  Just google it.  It has worked better than any benadryl or hydrocortisone for me and it has little to no side effects like drowziness.

 

Hope that helps.  Take care. :)

Aww thank you and to all the other ladies who offerred advice. Yeah, I never thought I was allergic to anything but MAN, the most intense itch/burn ever. I thought it was gonna drive me to insanity. The doc prescribed a steroid called prednisone and within 5 hours, I stopped itching, within 7 the angry red welts are now just a little miffed lol. It should be gone by tomorrow :-)

Lisa, glad you're feeling better! Be careful with prednisone. It makes you sloop hungry and it can easily put wEight on. For exercise, water aerobics is good. Being under the water takes the pressure off your knee. Also, you can get the wrist coils from Oriental Trading. In my soggy, there's a link for my thread on them. I uploaded the template too so there you go!

 

Jess, your pics are amazing. DH is going to flip his lid! I can't believe you are really getting ready to leaveI I feel like I have really gotten to k ow you and am SUPER excited for you!

Oh Kelly a boudoir with FI!! that is awesome, you could do a hollywood theme or something, that would be super sexy

 

Ok so here are the details - you don't need to wait for my planning thread :)

 

It takes three hours and that includes getting your hair and make up done

 

I suggest you start with a piece that has more coverage so you get comfortable. I started with FI's favorite soccer jersey.

 

Also I recommend drinking prior lol I had wine and it really helped a lot

 

Wear very high shoes, I am talking 5inches. The higher the shoe the longer the leg :) I bought my shoes at TJ maxx for $10

 

Invest in good lingeria. Start looking at magazine like Maxim and Victoria secret to get an idea of what looks good on you. I loved the one pieces. Pick out 4 different outfits to change into. You can bring props or an accessories. I brought my long pearls which worked out perfectly.

 

Practice, practice, practice, it makes a different if in you know what poses work for you and what you are comfortable with

 

Like I said all you ladies will feel amazing no matter what I gurantee it

AHAHAHAHHAAH thanks Risa - I should note that I did lose 30 lbs. before doing this and for the wedding. Got a little comfortable the last 5 years with FI and it just creeped up lol. Well since I am Spanish I am not willing to give up rice and plantains or avacados ahahah and FI is italian so pasta was out to. Instead I started running and do 5 miles 6 days a week and Sunday yoga. It really made a difference. I also cut out drinking during the week sad.gif  and I did cut down on carbs but I did not give them up. I have never felt better in my life as I do now.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
