Should I Do a First Look?

October 10, 2019

Andrea and Colin decided on a first look. It was their goal to spend as much of their wedding day together.
More and more couples today are opting to have a first look before their wedding ceremony. This means that, rather than only seeing each other when the bride walks down the aisle, the bride and groom actually see each other for the first time before the ceremony. Should I have a First Look? More and more couples today are opting to have a first look before their wedding ceremony. This means that, rather than only seeing each other when the bride walks down the aisle, the bride and groom actually see each other for the first time before the ceremony. This is a private moment alone between you and your fiancé in which you enjoy the privilege of seeing each other before your guests see you at the ceremony. These are special moments of maximum excitement, nerves, and tension in which you see each other for the last time as “boyfriend and girlfriend,” as “fiancés.”

During this time, there are kisses, hugs, tears, laughter, and sweet words. Some couples use this time to pray together, to exchange gifts, and even to make private vows to one another.

T.J. was over the moon seeing Melissa. They cried, hugged and kissed sealing this special moment of their day.
Although first looks are becoming more and more popular, many couples are still reluctant to have one at their wedding. Some couples love to follow the traditions, while others believe is bad luck to see the bride before the ceremony. Some even believe that the magic of seeing each other for the first time at the wedding altar will be lost.
In the end, you decide how you want to create that magic by giving importance to certain moments on your wedding day. It can be so magical to see each other for the first time alone, before the wedding, and it can also be incredibly magical to share that moment with all your guests as the bride walks towards the altar.
But if you decide to treat both moments as special, you can have both without losing any of the magic!
