We’re planning on a first look to do some pictures before our ceremony, and I’m debating who should attend. We only have 75 guests total, and I really want to surprise most of them, but I don’t want to miss the change to “get ready” with my mom/girls. I could re-get-ready though at the ceremony venue, since I will be jumping out of my dress while changing location after the first look.
Who was at yours?
Any regrets or “happy I did thats”?

our first look will be me, fi, and our photographer. i think it’s a really special, intimate moment, so i want it to be just us. everyone else can see us at the ceremony and reception.
you can still get ready with your mom/girls, then leave to go meet fi and do your first look. after that, you can meet up with the rest of your bridal party again and take those pics.

I have no advice, but am really interested in the answers. I’ve been pondering this myself too!

@kitzy: Will you be getting ready with anyone else or alone?

Our first look was me, my husband, and our photographer. I got ready with my bridesmaids, then they drove me up to the location of our first look, prepped me a bit, and then got out of the way because we wanted the moment just to ourselves.

our bridesmaids, and i think groomsmen and parents, were behind us watching. it took me and the girls longer to get ready than we’d planned, so we were behind schedule and had to jump right from the first look into the other pics. we also did ours on a crowded downtown street, so it wasn’t so private anyway. i’d wanted to do it in a private area but the photographer was worried about the lighting there. it was still lovely though 🙂

We will be having my Fiance there as well as the wedding party – but thats for picture purposes only.
Unfortunately the reason why we even opted for a “first look” (last min) was bc of mistakes with timing of the wedding, we’re getting married on the beach and wanted sunlight in our picturs. By the time the ceremony finishes, it will be dark – big mistake. lol
But, if I could have it another way – I wouldn’t have the bridal party there. 🙂

Our first look will only be me, Fiance and our photographer. The whole reason we’re doing a first look is so we can spend some time together, alone on our wedding day. We will be doing our bridal party pictures before our ceremony but the actual first look will be just us.
