If you’ve been engaged for a little bit you’ve probably been asked by your coordinator, wedding planner and/or your photographer if you will be doing a first look on your wedding day. If you haven’t been asked yet, you most likely will. So what is a first look? Put simply, it’s taking photos of you and your fiancé before walking down the aisle. If a first look is something you’ve not heard of before or you are thinking about it, here are some pros to consider.
You have a moment to calm your nerves before the ceremony.
You get more photos of you two!
Bridal party gets to “party” sooner!
You still have that emotional moment, just privately.
You have time to join your cocktail hour if you want to
You have a moment, just the two of you to be in the moment and to take it all in as a couple.
If you are worried about a first look taking away from you feeling extra special during the ceremony. TIP for this if you want to do a first look but are worried about this, is to hold something until just the ceremony, whether that be the veil or special shoes or something. keep something until the time you walk down the aisle.
Remember: There is no right or wrong way decision when it comes to a first look, do what feels right to you and your fiancé!
