Ok girls i need your help i went shopping today and bought some items

I ended up on Ann Summers i told the girls what i was doing a shoot and i had one to one attention with items being replaced with better ones correct sizes etc.

I ended up getting lots in the sale and when a bustier didnt fit the sales assistant went upstairs and found something that wasnt even on the shop floor.

Ive told them ill take the album in and show it, if i like the piccies of course

I bought

1 Black and mint basque which has a frill to cover the lumpy bits.

2 Pink and leopard print basque.Ive not ever worn animal print but i loved it

3 A black halterneck negligee thing which has beading on the bust which gives fab boobage(the sales persons recommendation)

4 A black corset that has ruffles that disguises my tum.(The sales person found this upstairs)

5 A pair of black ruffle knickers wth supenders.They look fab with the little black corest.

6 One pair or hold ups in black

Now apart from a cheap pearl necklace a pearl and diamante ring i have no other props.

I forgot i bought in the new year a chiffon short sleeve lacy cardigan thing which i could wear with a hot pink knickers and bra set

I have my hot pink wedding platforms and one pair of black high heals.

Paul is a mechanic and i would like to do a shot with a car theme.

Any ideas?

Oh ive just thought he has a dream car that he would love i could get a male friend to order the brochure and i could use that somehow!!!

would that work?

Have i forgot anything?

Wow, that sounds like you had a brilliant time in AS!! what great service they gave you!! And soooo many outfits...that's great - you're more prepared than me now!

First off, don't panic! You would have a fab photoshoot with just what you've got so all is ok :) If you want to get props, the ideas I would have are things like....

- a feather
- a feather boa
- a lollipop (depends on the look you're going for!!)
- maybe one of your wedding invites to have next to you in a pic
or a pic of both of you together
- a garter
- in relation to the car idea, how about a calendar (as the pics are bigger) and you can hold the month you're getting married, and the pic (hopefully) will be his ideal car....his 2 favourite things in the same pic!

does that help?? If I think of anything else, I'll let you know!

how did you first day in your new job go??

Maria, it sounds like you had an extremely successful shopping trip!! All of your outfits sound great! And don't worry about the tum or any other body part - the photog will work their magic & take advantage of all of your great parts!

 

I agree with Katie - a car calendar would be great, if you can find one of his fav cars that'd be even better, but any cool car calendar would work. You can have it laying open to Sept next to you in a photo w/ your date circled in a heart or something appropriately corny. Or you could buy a mechanic/car magazine & have a pic holding it up in front of you strategically placed, like you're reading it.

 

Aside from that, it sounds like you actually have enough props. I've seen many bd pics where the girls aren't wearing any jewelry, aside from their E-ring and maybe some earrings. Does the photog have a feather boa? If so you could play with that, but I wouldn't worry about it. You can use furniture & sheets as props too so I would just work with whatever they have.

 

when's your shoot?

Agreed with Karen. I didn't even have props or jewelry. I went all natural. =) The only shot with a prop was my in jeans and a Yankees hat...other than that, it was lingerie and me. =)

 

Good luck, you will be great! Just relax, have fun and be confident!!!

yeah it does depend on what you want! i've seen some where girls have made a theme of the props or had certain props for certain pictures, but I've equally seen lots where (as these other girls have said) they've just had them and an outfit.

 

I do love the idea of the car calendar/book tho :)

 

now I can say it at the right time...hope you're first day went well!!!

Thanks Katie for the first day at work wishes.I did feel a little sorry for myself going back in at half five when i would normally just getting in BUT it was all about the extra money so i shouldnt expect to be spending as much time at home.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
