We are doing a first look before!  We have discussed this with our photographer as we want it to be just as special as if he was seeing me for the first time when the church doors opened. 

We are wanting to do pictures before the wedding to save some time, since my venue and church are two blocks away, I am not a fan of making my guests wait to long at the reception!  Im sure which ever way you go you will be fine!  Deep breath & Smile

We are not!! and it was actually FI’s decision! he really doesnt want to see me until i walk down the aisle! We are going to get a lot of pics out of the way beforehand that dont involve us being together but then we will do some after the ceremony also.

We also considered doing a “first look” but my Fiance doesnt want to do that. He doesnt want to see me that entire day either. for us, it makes it more special when I am walking down the aisle to him.

We’re considering it. I think it would calm some nerves before the ceremony to have a private moment or two before the ceremony.

More than likely we will do first look.

I think you will hear many arguments on either side, and I have never heard of someone regretting going one way or another. It’s about what works for you two.

For us, our wedding was all about the ceremony, and the first look had to be at the ceremony.. it made it even more special for us.

Not that it’s as important, but we invited our guests to share this moment with us and they got to witness our first look as well, and they remember it…

We decided not to since we wanted to have that aisle moment and since we’re getting married really early in the day (11:00 am) it isn’t going to actually save us time with the pictures. I have heard really good things about first looks, though. When my friend got married last summer, she did a first look and it really helped her be less of an emotional wreck, which she was. If you think you’re going to be really, really anxious, it might be a good idea for you guys to do.
