HAVING A “FIRST LOOK”
Romantic, precious, beautiful, timeless, emotional, memorable, fun, and exciting. These words precisely describe the wedding feelings. However, some add to the list stressful, pressure, busy, nerve-wracking, appearances, and expectations!
Tradition dictates that the groom has to wait to see the bride until the moment she walks down the aisle in all her glory. Yet as a modern twist to today’s modern bride, the concept of a “first look” is happening more often than not!
What is this first look all about?
A first look is a special moment when the groom is able to see the bride for the first time before the wedding ceremony.
It is a private moment for the couple, away from the eyes of family and friends, in an intimate setting. It’s a lovely current wedding day tradition, a beautiful essence added to the wedding day!
Why should a bride indulge in the first look on her wedding day?
I have gathered the top reasons as to why you should consider having your first look moment before your wedding ceremony.
1. More opportunities for capturing timeless memories!
Who doesn’t like great pictures of their wedding? At the end of the day, all that’s left is the photography to look back on!
With a first look, you get 40% more portraits of the two of you. And trust us, those images are the ones you decorate your first home with! Often its night after the ceremony which leaves the couple with no natural light portraits. The first look solves that problem as well.
2. Getting Intimate
Walking down the aisle is certainly an emotional moment. However, when you come down the aisle and totally shock him with your gorgeousness, he can’t even express how amazing you look. Often your view is blocked by cellphones. Sadly, he can’t touch you, embrace you, or even speak to you. You need to wait for around 40 minutes for him to react. And after 40 minutes, the reaction isn’t the same as the first initial glaze! A first look gives you the time to get intimate on your wedding day.
3. Being present at your wedding!
Every bit of your wedding is planned down to the minute… Planning a first look before your wedding ceremony allows you to capture your romance while taking away from other special wedding activities. Since you are getting portaits before, you can be part of your cocktail hour and mingle.
The couple often describes their wedding day as one of the happiest days of their lives. It makes sense to spend more time with your life partner, doesn’t it? The first look allows you to capture creative and beautiful portraits while removing the pressure and stress from your happy day!
No bride or groom has ever regretted doing a first look, they have only had regrets that they didn’t!
