You got engaged, and just like that you are a ‘Soon to be Bride’! Whether you take this milestone in your life to hit the gym hard to shed a few, or you are trying different makeup looks, hairstyles etc. This IS a special time in your life! Most of you haven’t had children yet, so you are the most rested you will ever be. Most of you are young professionals, just barely beginning your life as an adult! You have new found responsibilities that have yet to take their toll on you…so let me suggest a few ways to embrace this time in your life and make the most of it!
1: Take a Dance Class!
How fun would it be to be able to have your first dance be beautiful and graceful! The memories you and your soon to be hubby can make… being able to move fluidly together. It is something sensual and lovely.
Maybe one day he will arrive home from work on a rainy Tuesday evening…you are cooking dinner, he comes behind you hugs you, spins you and you two dance the dance you learned for your first dance…can’t you just see it?! And feel it?
This is the time to do something like this! No kiddos to take up your schedule, time has yet to give you the aches and pains of growing older, and you are full of endorphins when you think of your soon to be hubs!
Just google “Adult Dance Classes Near Me” and voila! You will find one! But if you are in Bryan, I did the work for you and found this cool studio: Dance Barre BCS
2: Splurge on a Bathing Suit!
You are about to go on a honeymoon, and regardless of whether you are going to a sunny destination, you will probably have access to a pool/hot tub! Now I LOVE good Target suit…believe you me they have gotten plenty of my money! But for this special time in your life, splurge a little! Spend a little more to get a suit that is crafted to fit your #bridebod perfectly! I absolutely love all the designer one pieces that are out right now! But don’t be afraid to pick up a sexy number for your man! Embrace that #bridebod regardless of whether you hit the gym or not! Love the skin you’re in!
Here are a few of my favorite options:

3: Do a Boudoir Session!
If you are shy, you may be thinking “Rachel! You are nuts! I cannot do that!” I am a little nutty, I’ll give ya that, but I’m right about this! This is the perfect time to do a session like this! Not only because you can surprise your future hubs with a beautiful album for him to be able to enjoy his sexy bride, but for your confidence!!! These sessions are not just meant for your man! These sessions are more for you than him, I promise! My goal is to make you feel so incredibly beautiful both inside and out. If you leave the session feeling anything less I have failed you! I want you to understand deeply, that no matter what size, shape or place in life, YOU are
s t u n n i n g. Period. This will give you a new found confidence not only in your day to day, but for your wedding! It helps you see yourself thru my lens, and then in turn thru your man’s eyes…my goal is for you to see yourself how he sees you.
Be sure to check out my B O U D O I R page to find out more about that!
