First Look or Wait Until You Walk Down The Aisle?!

Amanda, on March 10, 2024 at 13:26 Posted in Plan a wedding 2 50

Are you doing a "first look" and taking pictures before your wedding ceremony? Or are you waiting until you walk down the aisle?! Some couples want to save that magic moment for the ceremony, but there's no denying how helpful a first look can be on your photography timeline!

First Look or Wait Until You Walk Down The Aisle?!

My husband was very adamant about wanting to see me for the first time at the alter and not before hand! That's one thing he did ask for on our wedding day and our pictures can definitely see the reaction!

    We are doing a first look since our ceremony is at 5pm so we can use the day to take photos and be able to attend our cocktail hour!

    When I walk down the aisle, My fiancé isn't very emotional and I have always wanted him to cry when I walk down the aisle so I figured if he hadn't seen me all day the emotions would be more built up and a better chance hell show his emotions for the photos and stuff!! I'm so excited!!

    We will see each other for the first time as I am walking down the Aisle because we want some tradition at the wedding but also my groom wants it that way. We are going to do a first touch because I will be freaking out and it will help with my nerves which is a great way to keep both of us happy.

    My fiancé and I will be doing a first look, we would like to get the majority of our photos done pre-ceremony. Then we can have a moment to breathe and just take everything in together after the ceremony. 😊

    Wow what beautiful photos/wedding.

    We're going to wait until I walk down the aisle for my fiancé to see me, we're super traditional so we thought this was the bet fit for us!

    I’m going to wait until I walk down the aisle, but I’m thinking of doing a first look with my parents, they live 8 hours away from where I live so there not going to be really involved in the planning and preparing part, so I figured this would be a sweet way to have them involved

    This is beautiful 🥹 we are keeping it traditional as well. The first look will be me walking down the aisle at our church. I can’t wait for this special moment. I get emotional thinking about it so I hope I can keep it together when I see his reaction 🥰

    We're waiting to walk down the aisle. We do have a private first dance planned so that will be our alone time with the photographer and the harp/cello we booked

    We are planning on doing a very private first look! No parents, no wedding party, just the two of us (and the photographer) in a remote corner of our ceremony location! This mainly is to help with the nerves on the day of but it's also a core memory for the both of us! And a little moment just to reminisce and be alone for a full and fun day of getting hitched!

    We are planning on doing a first look and reading our private vows at that time as well. We have gone back and forth a few times but we think doing a first look and most of the wedding party photos before hand will allows us the chance to be able to mingle with our guest during the cocktail hour!

    No way! As much as I’m sure it’ll take some of the edge off. We want it to be pure and all of the emotions for the first time as I’m walking down the aisle.

    Definitely doing a first look to have a moment for just us two. Also, we both want a moment to just feel the love and comfort of each other's presence without an audience!! So excited!! AH!

    Initially I wanted to do a first look but saving it all ‘til the alter would definitely be a more beautiful memory to cherish along side our loved ones 🤍

    We're doing a first look since photos and dinner is before our ceremony. Gives us time with the very important people to be there with us before the craziness happens
