Hey all!
As a traditional bride, I chose the first touch. We decided that spending the night before the wedding apart and seeing each other as I walked down the aisle, would make the moment more special for us.

After a crazy chain of events, touching his hand before the wedding was just what I needed to calm my nerves.
Tell me what you are planning, or feel free to share pictures of your special moments. I think that all choices are individual and none of them are wrong.
I hope everyone is well and stress free. Happy planning and congratulations to all! ❤🥰😘

    If we were going to have the wedding we had planned, we were going to do a first touch. There's a really cool staircase at the Victorian mansion on our venue's property that would have been perfect. Since we're now going to elope, we won't be doing either (I'll just meet him at the ceremony location).

    I'm sorry that you had to change your plans, since you will meet him there, you should have someone take a picture of each of your faces when you see each otherSmiley smile

    Thank you! Our photographers will be there, so I'm certain they'll get those shots. I'm actually very excited for this change of plans, even though it wasn't the original plan. We'll be able to get married now, in an epic-ly gorgeous location, and will be able to celebrate with everyone next year when it's (hopefully) safer. I'll for sure do a whole BAM when we're back!

    We did a first touch, although I saw him, he didn't see me.

    FH and I are staying together the night before the wedding and then getting dressed in separate hotel rooms. We’re doing a first look because we plan to take nearly all pics ahead of time and only a few afterward with family. We don’t have a wedding party, so lots of that time taken on posed pics will be eliminated. Our reason for this choice is because we’re going to join the last half of hour of the cocktail hour. We want to enjoy everything we planned and spent money on (and we also have some fun entertainment during cocktail hour that we don’t want to miss). But mainly, we want to enjoy the full experience of our wedding and moments with our guests, instead of losing that time.

    We’re doing a first look! It’s probably the thing I am most looking forward to.
    We’re also planning on doing all of our bridal party and family photos before the ceremony so everyone can enjoy cocktail together.

    I love these pictures!

    We did neither. We did spend the night apart, but the first time he saw me was as I entered the room on my dad's arm. Aaaaaaaand then I forgot the whole, "slow and steady" walk down the aisle because I hadn't seen DH for nearly 24 hours and I missed him! (Not kissing him as soon as I got up there was difficult, and then the officiant had to ask us to step apart so he could be seen... we're *that* couple.)

    I had considered doing a first look with my dad, but then he was mostly in the room as I was getting ready, so instead we have this great picture of him adjusting my necklace (it was his mother's pearl necklace, and it was my Something Old).

    We're traditional and staying apart the night before. He won't see or touch me until we meet on the aisle to walk down together. Actually, his son (10) will walk me to him and then the three of us will continue down the aisle together to the altar.

    We chose first look and it was my favorite picture of the entire day. So glad we had that time alone together before our wedding. First Look? First Touch? Which one did you choose? 6
