So as the old adage goes, once you are married, things get steamy in the boudoir (if they haven’t yet already!) As a planner you obviously focus on the wedding, however, so much can go into the romance around the actual wedding night. There are boudoir photo shoots, decorating the honeymoon suite, and even honeymoon photo shoots of the blissed out couple! Basically, it is your job to ensure not only that their big day is seamless, but also that they enjoy their wedding night even more!
For example, many brides-to-be feel the best that they have ever felt in their life prior to the big day; they’ve been working out, are in love with their future partner, and feel sexy! Which is why many brides are choosing to get their boudoir pictures done in a classy boudoir photo shoot. This can be a fun activity for their bridal party to do, together, or it can be something that the bride can do alone. Either way, the images from a gorgeous boudoir shoot is the perfect gift a bride can give her groom on the big day. See below for a few of our favorite boudoir shoots.

At DDE, we also have many special packages for decorating the bridal suite for the wedding night. Something as simple as outfitting the honeymoon suite with the couple's favorite bottle of champagne, late night treats, plush robes, candles and roses, adds that special touch to an already perfect day.
The main things to think about are: the couples favorite beverages (alcoholic and non), simple food (many times they have forgotten to eat all day), something elegant that the bride can slip into, candles and flowers for ambience, and an overall color theme to bring it all together.
And yet another fabulous idea is to plan for “The Morning After” photo shoot, i.e. a shoot of the happy couple on their honeymoon. This is a great way for the couple to capture their beauty after all of the formal pictures and excitement of their actual wedding day. Some of our couples have enjoyed these images even more than their wedding pictures. Partly because they are natural, relaxed, and blissed out from their first night together as a married couple! This takes a bit of coordinating, especially if the couple is going out of the country on their honeymoon. However, it is worth it, and is a way to create lifelong memories of their first night together.
