I think I made my peace with the idea of doing “First Look”, it’s just not how I thought I’d see him for the first time that day and more importantly it’s not how I wanted him to see me.
He only has a few people coming from his side (around 20 including his family) and I want them to be comfortable. Moving the ceremony an hour earlier to accomodate time for pictures between ceremony and reception would mean his friends need to leave Toronto around 7.30am on a weekend. I know that if I told him that this is what I want, he’d do it for me, but as they say “You should pick your battles”. I don’t want the marriage to start with him being upset that I didn’t honour the only wish he had and people being grumpy as well. Basically, the only thing he asked me was not to have the ceremony too early, I have a free reign on everything else.
Thank you, Bees, for your support! I am now more on board with this whole First Look idea, especially after reading that for many of you it was the best time 🙂

just think of it this way – you could still set it up so you are walking towards him, perhaps tearing up a little, etc., but it will be JUST THE TWO OF YOU! (and your photogs) I think it’s much more personal that way – you don’t have a whole church (or whatever)-ful of people staring at you during the very personal moment 🙂
I’m sorry you aren’t getting your vision though. Hopefully you’ll be happy with the decision!
