First look or wait until you walk down the aisle?

Would you rather do a first look and get your pictures out of the way before the ceremony? Or wait so the first time you see each other is walking down the aisle?

    Wait until I walk down the aisle! I can’t wait for this moment to be photographed

    We are waiting for the church - that was the only thing my FH was really adamant about (that and wearing a white dress)

    We are doing a first touch to calm the nerves, and get a moment before without ruining the surprise. Maybe that;s a good idea for you?


    Our photographer suggested it. So you stand around a corner from each other or something like that. Read each other a note, or just talk to each other. Hold Hands around the corner etc..

    We are waiting. We both decided we like the tradition of him seeing me as I come down the aisle.

    We are doing a first touch though! Going to be reading each other notes while around the corner from each other. Smiley smile

    Still get that little intimate moment in private before, without seeing each other.

    First look, we're both very private and I like that we would be able to share such an intimate moment together

    We're waiting until we meet at the aisle. I went back and forth a lot about it because first look photos are really cute and it's a good moment with just you and your FH and it gets photos out of the way so you don't have to rush during cocktail hour. I'm a crier though, like really bad, so I don't think a first look would help with my emotions walking down the aisle. I'd be a mess either way. At the end of the day i am just really traditional and I think that's what ultimately swayed my choice.

    We are doing a first look for sure, it started out as not our choice but the more I plan around this, and the more first looks I see, the more excited I get. So happy to get a special moment with my FH AND get pics out of the way.

    Since our ceremony doesn't start until 4:15PM with a cocktail to follow. I would have l liked to do a first look because it would allow us the extra time to take our photos so that we don't have to limit to the cocktail hour for all the pictures. Also, it would calm my nerves because I cry at anything now - I can only imagine what a mess I will be on the day of. I'd rather be a mess in front of my closest people - rather than the entire guest list. However my FH would like the first look to be down the aisle, I think its romantic so that is what we will be doing.
