This week is First Look week here on the site. I will be talking more about what a First Look is, the purpose of it, and why I totally love it when my couples choose to have one, but before I get to that let me go over a few quick things.
1. A First Look is when a bride and groom see each other before the wedding ceremony. This is done alone, away from your wedding party, and it is a moment shared by just the two of you.
2. Your wedding is your day, you should not let anyone, including your super cool photographer who goes to a wedding every weekend, tell you what to do on your day. :)
3. Even though it’s “your day”, you only get one shot at it. So, rather than just go with what you’ve “thought” would be best since you were a 4 year old girl, why not get some input from those who have tried a few things different and see if they have any tips or ideas you can learn from.
Like I said, the next 4 days will be full of pros, cons, and reasons why you should consider doing a First Look. I have interviewed tons of past brides AND grooms and will be posting some of their answers as well as talking about some of the myths of why it may or may not be “bad luck” to see each other before you walk the aisle. So, just to get warmed up, here are a few quick quotes from some happily married First Look brides.
One more thing, First Looks don’t just have to be about the mush-gushy. There can be very practical reasons why you would see each other before hand…
