3 Romantic Reasons to Do a First Look on Your Wedding Day
While some couples stick with tradition and don’t get a glimpse of each other on their wedding day until they meet at the altar, others choose to have a “first look” before the ceremony. You’ve got to do what’s best for you and your partner, but here are three reasons why we love this romantic trend.
1. The focus is on the two of you seeing each other in your wedding-day best and sharing a private moment before the ceremony. You can hug, kiss, laugh and tear up as a photographer and/or cinematographer captures the anticipation and joy of this once-in-a-lifetime moment.
2. Seeing each other before the ceremony takes the edge off. You’ll likely be jittery on your wedding day, but having a playful and intimate moment together should calm your nerves and help you feel more relaxed when you walk down the aisle.
3. You can’t exactly ask the officiant to “hang on a sec” while you embrace your groom and gush over how darned handsome he looks! Having a first look lets you express your heartfelt reaction without restraint.
