Having a first look or not?

When the time comes to plan your wedding day timeline you may ask yourself if you want to do a first look or not, but what is a first look?

The first look is when a couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day. This intimate moment typically makes for an emotional photo opportunity.

Having a first look has its cons and pros... Taking a moment with your future husband or wife before the ceremony will ease the nerves, give you a moment to connect with each other,take away the pressure and anxiety of many eyes watching you, plus you will be able to get more wedding pictures that later you will be happy you have!

One of the main cons is taking out that traditional moment of the groom seeing his bride for the first time when she walks down the aisle. Also it's important to consider the time and location of the first look. For example having the first look pictures at noon may be very hot and too much sunlight.

Whatever you decide to do remember it is your wedding day so choose whatever makes you and your future husband or wife feel more comfortable.
