The First Look - Yes or No?

October 27, 2018

It used to be the first time the groom laid eyes upon his bride to be was when she was walking down the aisle toward him. In recent years, however, the First Look has emerged and taken the wedding scene by force. And whatever your thoughts on it, whether you should do one or not, the First Look appears to be here to stay!

As a Wedding Planner, I see the pros and cons to both doing a First Look, and doing it "the traditional way". Many couples prefer the First Look, as it is more private, and can get the "pre ceremony jitters" out of the way before the big walk. In addition to making for a sweet private mini moment, it can result in some incredible shots! Of course...there is something to be said about the first time the groom sees his bride is as she walks down the aisle to him and into the next chapter of their lives.

Whichever way you and your fiancé decide to go, the choice is yours, and your day will be memorable! 

Happy Planning!
