I want to have a first look. really, really bad. he finally asked me why i want it so bad and i told him i was afraid he wouldnt show up (idk why but im a girl and i worry) so we came to an agreement tonight. we will do a first look, but no peeking.
i know, crazy.
we are going to get his and her blindfolds and have our moms walk us to eachother so we can sneak a kiss and a few quick words before we walk down the aisle but still not see eachother. im happy we came to that descision. it resolves my fears and keeps him in the dark about how amazing im gonna look.
but i think just between me and the hive im not gonna wear my blindfold. (saftey first lol) ill wear it for a few pictures but but then take a quick peek. knowing him he will do the same thing and we will ruin the surprise.

We did a first look and I don’t feel like it’s ruining the surprise. You still have that moment when you are walking down the aisle toward each other. Personally, I would have fallen on my face with a blindfold!

That’s a cute idea. I will say though that doing a first look was THE BEST decision that I made for our wedding day. I was so much more relaxed after I saw him. Our photographers helped to make it really special by making sure that everyone was in a different room (even parents, wedding party, etc) and we had about 10 minutes together. It was awesome!
P.S. If my husband found out that I didn’t follow through with the “deal” (i.e. wear blindfold) he would actually be pretty upset I think. Not sure how your FI is… just something to think about.
Edit: and when he gave me a kiss, if he felt that I didn’t have the blindfold on, I’m sure he would immediately take his off.

the way he is he will peek too lol. we are still toying with the idea and we still have another 398 days to figure it out.
i want to know he is there but at the same time i already know hes gonna cry when i walk down the aisle.
