I had posted Tell me you regret your first look a few weeks back trying to figure out if anyone truly hated their first look
We just got married a little over a week ago and although I don’t have my pics back yet, I just wanted to say that the first look was one of the best parts of the day. DH and I have spoken about it so many times since. He was originally against it, but you bees helped me to convince him. It was a magical moment shared between him and I on that day and by no means did it change the emotion of walking down the aisle. DH still had tears rolling down his face when I got to him (and so did my dad).
We had our first look with me coming down a huge flight of stairs and DH standing with his back to me around the corner and at the bottom. He says that as soon as heard my dress start to drag down the stairs he felt his eyes well up and knew that the first look was the best choice we ever made. It was the only truly private moment we shared that day and I feel truly lucky to have had it. It was fantastic and if you are debating it, I say go for it.

I think our first look was one of the best parts of our day, too :-). We had 2 hours to take portraits just the two of us, and I wouldn’t trade that intimate time for anything. The rest of the day is such a blur, but that time to be calm and just together was really important!

I really appreciated your original post. Up until that thread we were not doing the first look because I wanted that moment. And then I read your post hoping for some bees who regretted it and there were none! We decided to go ahead and have the first look and not only am I looking forward to the private moment(s) together, the weight lifted off my shoulders was amazing. I am no longer stressing about the pics we might not get or what if it rains where we would go. Thank you Thank you Thank you! And for the follow up. I’m glad to hear it was so amazing.

I’m really happy you posted this. Originally we didn’t want a first look at all (both of us, more FI than me, but still – both of us) lol well, because we didn’t think things thoroughly (though I swear I went over this 5 times!) the timing puts us a little off and we will not be able to get any good pics of him and I with sunlight on the beach.
Thus, now we have a first look. 🙂 FI is not very happy about it, I’m a little excited – but we both know its what has to be done (the pics are way more important to us) lol and I have a feeliung he’s going to love it.
Thank you again!!! and congrats!

Honestly, it’s the thing still 3 weeks later that he talks about “as the best moment of that day”. I should have our pics back this weekend and I will share as soon as I get them 🙂
