What is a First Look"? A first look is a private moment between the bride and the groom just before the ceremony. It's very intimate moment and away from the eyes of friends and family.
Below are 4 reasons why you should consider a first look before your ceremony.
1. Alone time with your partner.
You will get more intimate time on your wedding day with your fiance. We have heard in the past from brides and grooms that go for the traditional way that they don't get to spend alone time at their wedding day, so first look will allow you to spend a little more time together and will only be the two of you ( and us but pretend we are not be there 😄 ) and therefore will be more personal.
2. L̶̶e̶̶s̶̶s̶ More is More.
You will get a lot more images of you two together and the emotions will be more authentic. I mean, imagine you walking from behind him and as soon as he turns to see you, he can actually touch you, embrace you and even speak to you right then and there instead of waiting for you to walk down the aisle. You will be able to see his reaction face to face. This is a perfect time to cry, laugh, complement each other and just be yourselves.
3. Less nervous.
Becuase first look is right before the ceremony, both of you will be less nervous when you walk down the aisle. And ladies, don't you worry, your men will still get emotional once he sees you walking down the isle. Trust us.
4. No rush, just fun.
Normally the wedding day would start when you come down the aisle,then the ceremeony would end, you would rush through portraits so that you are not late for the introductions an then the reception time. If you decide to do the first look instead of being rush for your bridal party portraits, you actually get to enjoy them and have fun hanging out with your best friends and family on your wedding day.
