I think unless there’s more than an hour between the ceremony and the cocktail hour that wouldn’t work.  We thought about it too.  We decided to do a first look.  Which is still special, its just that when you walk down the aisle he’s seen you already.

I agree with Jennifer, If you have a time gab between the ceremony and the cocktail hour you should be able to do it.

We’re doing our pictures before and after the ceremony.  We’ll get our familiy and just girls/boys done before and the both of us after so we won’t see each other, but it won’t take too long.

I think that michelle86 has a great suggestion. This is something that I have been thinking about for a long time. In addition to wanting to be apart of the cocktail hour, I also want to make sure that the pictures don’t go over time. So I think that I am going to have family pictures taken before and hubby and wife pictures taken during cocktail hour *^_^*

We took family pictures and pictures with our wedding party during the first part of the cocktail hour.  That way we could still spend time with our guests and have some snacks.  Our photographer is a genius and pulled just the two of us away for some pictures just the two of us right after we ate dinner.  Everyone else was finishing up their meal, having dessert, still drinking and we got to spend some alone time togehter in the midst of the chaos.  It was the only time we had together to talk about and reflect on what just happened!  It was my favorite part of the day.  We took about 20 minutes, got some amazing pictures and got to really connect without everyone else around.  If you can do something like this, I’d really recommend it!

our cocktail hour is basically time for us to take photos – we’re not planning on attending.  I wish we could… but logistics of time won’t allow it.  Hopefully we’ll get someone to bring us a plate of food while we’re busy w/photos.

We used our cocktail hour to take pictures, but our caterer was great and brought us each our favorite drink/some apps as we started photos. Maybe yours could do the same and then you wouldn’t feel like you are totally missing out!
