First Looks: a New Tradition

Traditionally, a couple would wait until walking down the aisle to first lay eyes on one another. The anticipation and excitement create a breathtaking moment for not only the bride and groom but for all of the guests as well. Your friends and family can share the moment with you and are often moved to tears as they watch your expressions unfold. 

Recently, a new trend often takes the place of this time-honored tradition. A first look occurs before the ceremony between the bride and groom. The two meet before the ceremony and reveal themselves to each other in private. A photographer is typically ready to capture the beautiful and emotional moment between the couple. 

First looks are becoming widely popular for weddings. Is a first look right for you? There are many reasons why a first look might be just the right touch for your special day.

Intimate Moments

One of the main reasons for a first look is to create a special time for both of you to spend a few moments alone before the big event. Your wedding is ultimately about the love you share. What better way to soak in the moment than privately before the busyness and excitement of the day begins. 

Spending some time taking everything in and seeing each other in an intimate moment is a special way to connect. You’ll enjoy the privacy of your first look and will be able to cherish it always. 

Leave the Nerves Behind

Are you feeling nervous about your walk down the aisle? A first look is an ideal way to calm your wedding day jitters. Connecting with your soon to be spouse before the ceremony can put your mind at ease, help you relax, and put the whole day into perspective. 

Having some private moments together before you walk down the aisle can take the pressure away and allow you to enjoy your ceremony fully.

Let Your Emotion Show

If you worry that you will be too emotional during the ceremony, a first look can allow you a private time to show your emotions in an intimate setting. You won’t need to worry about not being able to focus on the ceremony or vows, and instead can express your genuine excitement and sentiment.

Save Some Time

One advantage to a first look is that after the first look, you can take some of your wedding photos together. Taking pictures of the wedding party or bride and groom before the ceremony allows you to immediately enjoy the reception without keeping your guests waiting until you are done taking photos. 

If you have the time available in your day before the ceremony to take some of the photographs, consider how it might help the day flow. 

Do it Your Way

There are several fun ways to pull off a first look. You can still walk around a corner and down an aisle leading up to your groom. Another option is to wear blindfolds and then have them removed by a special member of the wedding party. 

Whether you decide to share a special message with your fiance or stand in awe of each other and the moment, you can make your first look as unique as your love story.
