We are planning on doing a first look for a number of reasons. We are both shy people and I think we would be more comfortable seeing each other for the first time just us. I think I would get a better reaction from FI if he is not infront of 175 people. It will also help us get more pictures done before the wedding. I really think it will be a sweet moment for the two of us.
What is everyone else planning to do??

We’re not doing a first look. I was on the fence but FH didn’t want one. So we’re going the traditional route.

We are doing a first look – our ceremony and reception are at the same place and we wanted to be able to get right to cocktail hour. We also aren’t very traditional and I want that moment to be private and between us.

We’re doing a first look with our photographer! I think it will be more special with just the two of us. We’re really looking forward to it 🙂

I wouldn’t trade the 1-on-1 first look time I had with my husband for anything. It was the best part of the day! It’s also my favorite photos 🙂

I reallllly want to do a first look, but FI is 100% against it. I decided that I’ll respect his wishes since he has had to compromise for me.

I didn’t really care either way, but my FI really wants to be surprised as I am walking down the aisle so that is what we are doing!

I’ve been trying to convince FI, he’s starting to come around but it’s not definate yet!

Yep another vote for FI really not wanting to do it. I think it’s sweet that our guys want the first look to be when we’re walking down the isle!!

We’re definitely doing a first look. Our photographer was trying to convince FI that with a first look, we can share all those initial emotions (excitement, nervousness, etc) with each other instead of us and our friends and family…we’re shy people as well . Plus, we want to attend our cocktail hour.

I really wanted the first look ‘moment’ in photos but my FI doesn’t want to either. He wants to go the traditional route as well. Booo!!!

FI and I are both all about doing a first look! We plan on doing most of the pictures before the ceremony so that we can enjoy our cocktail hour with our guests (ceremony, cocktails, dinner, etc. are all being held at an estate).

Our “first look” will be on that aisle. And I’m stoked! To each his own, but I can’t wait to see his face as he sees me for the first time walking towards him in front of friends and family 🙂
