Will you and your fiancé(e) steal a private moment together before the wedding day madness commences? Or would you rather save your first look for the walk down the aisle?

Will you do a first-look? Yea or Nay?

    Nay. I was pretty neutral about it and let my FH decide if he wanted one. We both knew we wanted want a photographed one if we did and originally decided to do one so we could do pics before hand, but in the end with the timeline of our photographer we wont' be able to take photos beforehand anyways so we decided not to do one

    Nay. I didn’t mind either way, but my fiancé is adamant about not doing it.

    YES!!! It took nothing away from our walk down the aisle and actually helped both of us relax and connect before that big moment in front of everyone. Some of my favorite pictures of the day came from our first look and I could not be happier!

    Nay. My FH has actually expressed that he would rather wait and be completely surprised the first time around when he sees me walking down the aisle.

    Nay. FH has stated many times he does not want to see me or my dress until I'm walking down the aisle. He's pretty traditional with a lot of the wedding aspects.

    I don’t think either of us wants to do that! Save it for the walk down the aisle

    We went back and forth and finally decided to do it and where glad we did. Getting to spend that time with just the two of us is unforgettable.

    At first I was dead set against it, but I am coming around to the idea of doing one. I think just having that private moment for just the 2 of us is going to be magical..

    His first time seeing me will be when I walk down the aisle. We both agreed that first look is not for us.

    Yea. Love the first look! It's going to help our day logistically, as well as give us a private moment before the festivities. I can't wait!!

    I'm having my first look with my father instead of with my FH. I want my FH to first see me walking down the aisle.

    I'm doing a first look with my dad but not with my FH. I wanted a first look, FH was neutral. However, both of our dads were not for a first look - they think it will be more special waiting until walking down the aisle.

    I'm starting to regret the decision a little bit, only because I know I will be a nervous wreck and would probably be much more calm if I had a moment with my FH beforehand. However, I'm hoping my dad calms me down and everything goes well!

    We will see if we change our minds before the big day!

    FH didn't want to do a first look. He wants the surprise of seeing me as I walk down the aisle!

    Yea for sure! Our wedding will be at 5:00 and then reception will start at 6:30, so we want to have all of our pictures done ahead of time so we can enjoy our cocktail hour.
