We’re doing a first look and doing 99% of the picture before hand.  I’m not sure what you can do other than do as many as possible before the ceremony.

If this is your situation I really think your only option is doing a first look and doing your pictures before.

You probably won’t like this answer…. we were in the same situation and took the picture before hand.  Basically, our logic was that we already spent our time together as is, and we wanted to go into the marriage together – there really wasn’t anything to hide/ be surprised about.  We spent about two hours getting all the pictures we wanted of my husband and I as well as the ones with the whole bridal party/ families.  It just wasn’t feasible for us to make our guests wait, especially because there was no cocktail hour!

Are you serving food/lunch/dinner (?) immediately after the ceremony?

If you are set on not seeing eachother, the only thing I can think of is you taking pictures while your guest are eating and then you can eat after your first dance? 

How long is your reception going to be?

We are going to take majority of pics before ceremony.. i.e. me with my family, me with his family, him with his and mine, etc… then the ceremony pics. Our reception is also starting right after ceremony. We are offering our guests champagne, cheese, fruit and crackers.. then about 30 mins later (this is after the bride/groom photos) we will go into the hors de vours reception…


thats our plan, lets hope it works! 🙂
