    First looks aren’t really a thing here in the uk but that aside it was lovely having our rings blessed in our ceremony and exchanging them then.  To do it before would mean a loss of the symbolism (for me). We had plenty of photos after our ceremony with rings.

    We didn’t wear our bands during the first look pictures. We gave them to our officiant when we arrived to the venue.

    Yes. They were our only portrait style pics and the photographer thought it’d look silly not to have them in our WEDDING pics- i kinda agree although they don’t show in most of the pics anyway

    I plan to wear my engagement ring, without my band, for our first look.

    I think the actual first look pictures would look silly with wedding bands. If you were doing a traditional walk down the isle you wouldn’t have a wedding ring on. But if you’re going to do portraits after the first look I would put them on for that.

    IT never occurred to me to do this but my photographer brought it up & subtly encouraged it. I’m glad we did. I wish I’d had all three on for all pics my wedding day.
