@ajstreasure: Are you talking about doing a first look?  Because those are totally worth it and you get 2 extra hours of photo time. πŸ™‚

We’re doing our first look (and as many photos as possible) before the ceremony. I’m all about getting back to the party asap.

@ajstreasure: Yep – we did it at our wedding and my husband had originally fought me on it, but he is so glad we did! πŸ™‚  Yay, now you can spend 2 more hours with your FI!! πŸ™‚

I am doing a first look as well – it is not actually jewish tradition to keep the bride and groom separate before the ceremony. traditionally, the groom will lift the bride’s veil prior to the ceremony to make sure he is marrying the right person!  So no intention on hiding before I walk down the aisle!

We’re doing a first look and getting as many pictures as possible out of the way prior to the ceremony.

Yes, it’s called a first look, usually arranged by your photographer. The pictures are always great- if you wanted some examples you could post a thread asking for people to post their first look pictures. Fiance and I will be doing one πŸ™‚

we are doing a first look because we want some time alone (with photographer) before everyone else starts showing up.

It gives you more time to do pictures before hand so your cocktail hour pictures can be centered around family.

Read this post by Mrs. Scissors if you need more convincing!

In Haiti the tradition is that the bride and groom arrive at the church in the same car. We probably won’t be arriving in the same vehicle, but we will see each other before the ceremony.
