I have a question for those who did first looks. When did you do them? We plan on doing one and getting most pictures done before the wedding including the wedding party, families, and some of Fiance and I together. I was just wandering when you saw eachother compared to when you did all the other photos. I was thinking we should do the first look photos and everything first so that we can go on to the rest of the photos.
Also, if you have first look photos I love to see them!!! 🙂

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
We did our getting ready photos, then first look, then couples portraits, then bridal party photos, then family photos, and then the ceremony. We allocated 2 hours for first look thru family photos, and we should have scheduled a bit more time.

Our ceremony was at 6:30, we did the first look at 4ish. We took the bride/groom photos and all the bridal party photos before the ceremony, ending around 5:45. We saved the formal family portraits and any other ones we forgot until after the ceremony.
And because I’m a photo whore:

We had a 5PM ceremony and I think we did the first look around 3. Started with bridal portraits, then the First Look, then bride and groom, then bridal party (by which time we were totally wiped out and never wanted to take another picture as long as we lived). Saved the family portraits til after the ceremony, because I wanted there to be at least SOME people there that hadn’t seen us all gussied up yet Plus, the family portraits can be done quickly if you have someone with a loud voice barking orders at people. They tend to move faster when they’re missing cocktail hour and want to get back to it, haha.
We did the ol’ back-to-back, step out and see each other type of First Look:

First look followed immediately by bridal party portraits. Couple portraits and family portraits were done after.

We’re following the timeline you mentioned: first look, then meeting up with everyone else (wedding party & family) to take the rest of the pictures, all before the ceremony. We have a cocktail hour immediately following our ceremony (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception are all at the same place) and we want to enjoy the time with our guests, especially in case we don’t have enough time to go around and visit each table.

We did our first look right before the family photos were taken (before the ceremony of course). I think it was scheduled about 90 minutes before the ceremony start time to allow plenty of time for photos and for me to get out of the area before guests arrived.
Here is my full recap of our first look:http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/recap-1-first-look-photos-pro-pics

Our ceremony was at 5PM so we did our First Look around 2:30-3PM, and wedding party photos immediately after. So many of our guests arrived early, though, so I had to rush off and hide in the bridal suite before we finished all of the wedding party pictures!

Our ceremony was at 6 and we did our first look around 3:30 or 4:00. Then we did bridal party pictures, family pictures, ceremony, then a few more bridal party pics.

I love first looks and am pretty sure we’re going to do that! 🙂 We want to get photos out of the way so that we can hang out with our loved ones after our wedding ceremony.
