    We only get the place (ceremony & reception sites) for 4 hours from the start of the ceremony.

    Sooooo we really didn’t want to make all the guests wait around for forever while we take photos, then rush through everything at the reception once we get there…and we want to eat!

    So yep, we’re going to do photos before the ceremony.

    We both agreed that the first time we will see each other on the big day is when I walk down the aisle.  That moment is really special to us.  I can understand why people may want to see each other before (private moment, practicality of taking photos, etc.), but we are both fairly traditional and just liked the idea of seeing one another at the ceremony.

    We aren’t even doing pictures before the ceremony. I want the first time for him to see me in my dress to be as I walk down the aisle. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yea, I’m old school like that.

    He is not going to see me on the day of the ceremony, but he has seen me in my dress. (I wanted to know if he liked it before I bought it).   I really wanted his opinion on my dress purchase. 

    If our Mothers weren’t so traditional we would see each other for pictures before hand. They would be very upset if they knew he has already seen the dress.

    We’re both adamant about taking pictures before the ceremony.  We want to be there for the cocktail hour – we don’t want to miss a second of the celebration!

    I picked "other" because I’m not sure yet… ๐Ÿ™ I’ve also always wanted the first time he sees me to be when I walk down the aisle, but I also want some of our yummy hors d’ouevers (Can’t spell that word! LOL), and I don’t want to miss out on schmoozing during the cocktail hour… We’ll just have to see I guess. Our venue is HUGE and there are about a bajillion places to take pics so I don’t know what we’ll do yet. ๐Ÿ™

    I’m not sure if it’s the bad luck thing or more the surprise element, but from the getgo I have been adamant that he will not see the dress until I walk down that aisle. It just feels right to do it that way…although it would be sooo much more convenient to take pictures before our ceremony, we’re gonna squeeze it in during cocktail hour to make this work.

    He didn’t really want to see it before around the house or anything, but honestly the day of we didn’t take pictures before the ceremony because it didn’t work out with the timing for the day.

    Yep. I need him to help me pick it out. He’s too valuable in telling me how good it looks (or doesn’t).

    I don’t really believe in luck, but Mr. Powder Puff still isn’t going to see me in my dress until the day of. I want him to be blown away and surprised when I walk down the aisle!

    I’m not superstitious, but my fiance still isn’t seeing my dress (or me in it) until the wedding day.  We both wanted it to be a special surprise on the actual day of the wedding.

    We are not seeing each other before the ceremony.  It is actually mainly because HE does not want to see me in my dress before hand!  This was the one thing that he would not budge on.  He said he is really looking forward to seeing me for the first time coming down the aisle. 

    We are doing our family pictures (me with my family and him with his) and the bridesmaid/groomsmen photos before hand to at least get those out of the way.   We then have about 30-40 minutes between the ceremony and cocktail hour that we will be taking photos.  Everything is at the same location so we will not have to travel.  We will probably be late to cocktail hour but hope to join in for part of the fun at least!
