We completely get it when you don’t want to have a “first look” on your wedding day. You are afraid that you will lose that magical moment when everyone (including your fiance) sees you proceed down the wedding aisle for the first time.

But, there are so many good reasons to consider having a first look!  I noted some below —

  1. First and foremost, a “first look” can be so romantic because it is just the two of you enjoying the moment of seeing each other for the first time.
  2. A “first look” will help you calm down your wedding day jitters.
  3. If your wedding takes place during non-summer months, a “first look” allows you the chance to take outdoor photos before sunset
  4. A first look allows you an opportunity to enjoy your time during the cocktail reception.

So, give the idea some thought! You may be very glad you did.
