I saw this adorable buzzfeed post of grooms reacting to seeing their brides for the first time. I got emotional!! As much as I’d hope my FI will be blown away by me coming down the aisle, I’m afraid he’ll be too nervous to really take it all in . It’s how he is. Meanwhile for myself, I just hope I’m not sobbing, esp with how much I’m paying for my makeup lol!
Please post your own first looks/aisle reactions!!

My groom was terribly sick the morning of our wedding and no one told me. We did our scheduled first look and after our sweet little moment I stepped back and my face went to horror. I could see it all over him. He looked ghostly white and weak. After I realized his face wasn’t of nerves and more of nauseasness I was scared. Luckily, Mr. pepped up before the ceremony and got his color back and was feeling more like himself. I felt so awful for him.

BurlapnLace: This was one thing I was super excited about, but our photographer only got photos of me during our first look and the back of DH’s head. 🙁 She’s an amazing photographer so I really couldn’t believe she missed the look on his face. I had even told her that’s what I wanted, because we didn’t have a traditional “aisle” so there wouldn’t be the moment during the ceremony when we first saw each other. Huge bummer 🙁

jenm2be: I love the emotion, you two look so cute! The second picture is my fave!
BurlapnLace: I’m worried for our first look too! My FI had this trademark ‘goofy grin’. He’s always smiling, I love it! But, I’m also nervous there will be NO emotion and just him standing there smiling like a crazy person hahaha.

winterwoodlandbride15: Thank you! It’s really the only photo from our first look that I love. All the others are from weird angles or seem to be mid moment photos.

Aw first looks are the best! You can get some great photos, but more importantly it’s a time to just catch a few minutes alone with your groom before the craziness begins. (Well, with a photog hanging over in the corner too, but hopefully discretely…)

BurlapnLace: DH admitted after the first look that he was confused about what to do so he wasn’t overly expressive – but that’s my man. 🙂

Our first look was one of my favorite moments of the day! Pure, raw, unadultered emotion. The fourth picture was when he finally got a glimpse of what I looked like head to toe, and he lost it 🙂
