We’re doing a first look. We want those quiet few moments with each other before all the crazy begins.

But we’ve been discussing more and more the possibility of eloping lately.

Definitely save it for the aisle! I want him to be blown away!

first look- easier to have pictures beforehand, and we’ll have that moment either way!

We’ve decided that we’ll have breakfast together at the hotel, then go to church to get ready separately. I want to make him cry when he sees me walking down the aisle. 😀

We haven’t actually discussed it yet and the chances are that my boyfriend has no clue that things like First Look ceremonies even exist. We’ll figure it out at some point, assuming we can even afford a wedding. It’s all still up in the air.

That’s so hard. I want both! 😂 If only that was possible. Both have so many positives. I think my SO wants to save it for the aisle and I could go either way.

I want to save it for the aisle. It’s my favorite part of a wedding, when the groom sees his bride for the first time. I want to share that joy with everyone.


However the root behind the tradition does bother me sometimes.

Definitely saving it for the isle. It’s my favourite part when the bride and groom see each other for the first time and I wouldn’t want my guests missing out on that.

Also I really don’t see the point of a first look? Like, what would we even do? I don’t want our proffessional photos taken before we are actually married that seems kind of pointless… (for us anyway).

Save it for the aisle! I know some brides are in a tight timeline and have certain pics they want. I’m not going to be placing a huge emphasis on photography, so whatever I can get in between my ceremony and reception is what we will get!

First look for sure! I love both the idea of having a private moment together beforehand and for scheduling purposes to get the bulk of photos out of the way to enjoy cocktail hour/reception.

I didn’t do a first look with my first wedding, but I think I do want to do it for the second.

Add me to the list please! My SO and I designed a custom ring together and he put the order in about 3 weeks ago. The ring will be ready soon, but I have a feeling my SO might wait until my birthday in October to propose.
