So I have been thinking a lot about if my groom and I should do a first look. Then I found this post:
Each one is so incredibly beautiful and touching. I couldn’t help tearing up at my desk as I looked at all the pictures of brides and grooms seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. I think the moment is incredibly special no matter what. So what do you plan on doing and why?

We’re doing a first look because I don’t want to miss my own cocktail hour. I would even consider getting ready with my groom, but the logistics just don’t work out that way (I have to get to the salon, he needs to meet his brother, etc).

The first look was our favorite part of the day. I’m so glad we chose to do it that way.

I guess I’m more old fashioned, but I kind of feel like the whole “first look” trend is just that…..a trend and it seems like a way for photographers to be able to charge for more hours.
I like the idea of everyone getting to see my finaces reaction when he first sees me. And, for me, I don’t want to see him until that moment either.

I got the best of both worlds– a first look AND a great shot of my groom as I walked down the aisle!

I voted first look, but in reality, it’ll probably be when we first wake up together before parting ways.. haha

He’ll first see me when I walk down the isle! I feel like there is something so magical about me seeing his expression along with our guests!

We’re doing a first look. At first FI was against it (and I was kinda, too), but after hearing lots of people raving about their first look, we changed our minds. We are pretty private people, so I think it will be best to share that moment alone together. I want to be able to react the way I would in front of him, not the way I would in front of all of our family and friends. I can be myself in front of FI. I’m actually looking forward to the first look the most out of everything that will happen that day (I mean, aside from actually marrying him!!)

The first look was the best decision I think we made. I was kinda against it because I wanted to wait to walk down the aisle but doing the first look allowed us to share that special moment between the two of us (and the photogs of course lol). I loved it. I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂
