While going over our ceremony ideas, my planner proposed the idea of a first peek. This is where I would meet with my groom in seclusion just before the ceremony. I wanted to stick with tradition and not see him until I walked down the isle but I know I will just be a bundle of nerves until I see him. Anyone out there done this, if so any regrets??

We’re planning the first look for many different reasons:
- We want to have some time alone on our wedding day. If we didn’t do the first look, we would hardly see each other with how hectic the day will be.
- We’re paying alot of money for our cocktail hour and we want to enjoy it.
- There is no way we would be able to fit all of the pictures we want into an hour. Having a first look will allow us as much time as we want and we won’t have to rush.
There are a ton of bees who have done a first look and I actually don’t think that any of them have regretted it. I know most have said it was their favorite part of the whole day.

We did a first look and loved it. It gave us time together before the ceremony (we didn’t get much at the reception) and the walk down the aisle was still so special!
Also, the pictures from those few hours together are my favorites!

First look pictures always have so much emotion in them- love the idea!

I really wanted to do it, but DH wasn’t a fan of the idea 🙁 We didn’t do it, and it worked out just fine. I still wish we would have though!

I have been weighing the pros and cons of this too!
