    @kristen182:  Hmm, I never thought about this! We were all about the kisses at the first look.  That being said, there’s something sweet about no kiss! So I threw in a vote for that. 🙂

    @kristen182:  I didn’t even think about that, I mean DH and I had kissed before our wedding day so why not?  I was a bundle of nerves and it would seem really odd to me to tell him he can’t kiss his future wife…

    I wouldn’t plan it out.  Just go with what feels right and fix your makeup if you need to.  Sometimes, just letting things unfold naturally and going with the moment are better than planning out everything.

    Oh we’re definitely going to kiss!  I can’t stop myself from kissing him when we’re really close together or in special moments, even after a decade together.  I don’t think it will ruin the ceremony kiss at all.

    If you’re already in my opinion spoiling the magic of the ceremony, then why not go all the way and kiss?

    I say save it, if you’re not going to do the whole first time seeing each other then you should at least do the first kiss IMO

    I’ve never heard of doing that. I don’t think I could handle not being able to kiss him during the first look. It’s up to you, I guess it’s kind of sweet, but I’m assuming you’ve already kissed before? So I guess don’t really get it. Plus, I also wouldn’t overthink it – just relax and enjoy your day!


    And I have Arrested Development on the brain, so this kind of thing reminds me of this (teehee):

    I think of that First Look as our last time to kiss before becoming husband and wife. Just like the ceremony kiss is our first kiss as husband and wife. I definitely plan on kissing him!

    Look at it as: last kisses as single people not ‘first kiss on wedding day.’ Then you have the post-vow kiss as your ‘first kiss as a married couple.’ Both are special!

    I couldn’t not kiss DH during our first look! It was such a romantic time. Plus, it was a different type of kiss than our first kiss as man and wife. Our first married kiss still felt extremely special 🙂
