For our wedding day, we opted for a first look. For us, it was very important we dedicated enough time for our bridal and groom portraits. This all happened right before we met with our families at the venue for more family portraits. It also happened while we still had natural light available and while my makeup was still fresh.
Some advantages to having a first look.
1. If you are nervous about walking down the aisle, meeting each other before the ceremony helps you relax.
2. If you are worried about ruining your make-up, this is also a great reason to get those bride and groom photos before you start crying. When my husband and I shared our vows, I couldn’t hold my tears back.
