Why Have A First Look

3 Reasons To Have A First Look

It used to be a superstition to not see your groom before you walk down the aisle. This long-held tradition actually dates back to when arranged marriages were popular. It was thought that if the groom saw his arranged bride before the ceremony, and didn’t like her, he would call off the wedding! Crazy, right?! But now in modern days, this trend is changing in the form of a first look!

A first look is a time to see your groom in full wedding attire before the ceremony. There are many benefits to having a first look. Here are 3 reasons why having a first look will make your day extra special!

 

Get rid of nervous jitters

Weddings are filled with all sorts of emotions. The exciting nervous jitters are all part of this amazing day! By having a first look, it will help you relax and get rid of those butterflies before you say, “I do!” It is a time to spend with your fiancé before the hustle and bustle of the wedding. It is a time to share any special letters, vows, and just soak in the fact that you are getting married!

 

The timeline is more efficient

When you have a first look, your timeline is more efficient. It allows you to get family formals, bridal party, and bride and groom portraits are done before the wedding! If you decide to not see your fiancé until after, there is a short window of time to capture all of the photos before the reception. Sometimes this window can feel a little stressful as you are in front of the camera non-stop until the portraits are completed. By having a first look, it allows for a more relaxed timeline and stressfree day.

 

Photos will be stunning

Most of the time the ceremony venues are not in the best lighting (aka dimly lit churches). By having a first look, the location can be picked by your photographer. This allows for stunning first looks images capturing both his and her reactions and intimate moments shared with your husband-to-be.

When planning your wedding, consider having a first look! There are many exciting reasons why you should have a first look on your wedding day! Let your photographer know which decision you choose to help you formulate the best timeline for your day!
