Hm, I’m not doing this. But I always just figured that the photographer got the groom and told him where to stand. Then she went and got the bride who walked to the same spot and tapped the groom on the shoulder or something. I dunno 🙂

We did a first look and it worked out great. The photographers got my hubby to his spot and then the planner walked me over. They all had walkie talkies and were communicating about logistics. It was totally stress-free.

Here’s our wedding video trailer — the first minute or so shows how the first look went 🙂 Totally one of the best moments of our day. I highly recommend! http://vimeo.com/21582471

We’re getting married in our neighborhood, about 4 blocks from our apartment. My Fiance proposed to me on our roof (we also hung out up there the day after our first kiss, so it’s a special place to us) SO we will be having the first look up there.

I’m getting ready at the reception site, my Fiance will be getting ready with the groomsmen at home. We’re planning on doing the “first look” about 1.5 hours before the ceremony. SO, once I’m ready, I’ll have a car bring my BMs and I to my apt. They’ll have a drink with the groomsmen in our apartment and I’ll head up to the roof.

My fiance will be waiting for me at the edge of it and I will walk out of the stairwell and to him. Rather than doing the tap-on-the-shoulder, I’m going to let him watch me approach. It’ll be just the photographers and us. We’ll have our moment, then have the wedding party join us for a few pictures.

Tentatively, we’re going to have a town car driver hired for the day. So the driver will bring me up to the first look site. 🙂 Otherwise, I’d probably have the personal attendants bring me.

We’re getting married at a golf course. There is a gorgeous bridge surrounded by a body of water and trees. I’m having our photog and Fiance go to the bridge first and my Maid/Matron of Honor and I will follow after. I’m going to use our cell phones to communicate.

@MissBug83:

Hi – we’re doing a ‘first look’. I’m staying at a hotel near our venue with my bridesmaids, etc. FH is showing up there; one of the reasons we picked this hotel is it’s beautiful!

Our photographer is coming to the hotel before the ‘first look’ pictures, so I’m assuming I’ll just walk outside and meet FH on the grounds… the rest of the bridal party stays inside, joins us in a few minutes to take more pictures.

@Keltaena: and @juno0522: Thanks! I had a total perma-grin on my face the whole day. Couldn’t have been better. I wish that much happiness for all brides!
