    Yep! Our ceremony is at 5:30pm and being that daylight savings just happened and our wedding is on Saturday, we don't want all of our photos in the dark. So we will be doing our first look at 3:30pm (:

    We plan on having a first look and knocking out all pictures before the ceremony. Want to celebrate as much as we can with our guests!

    This is something we considered for a while, but we decided not to do it. I think we have our timeline pretty much set, which includes plenty of time after the ceremony for pictures. We also both are really set on having the first time he sees me be when I'm walking down the aisle.

    No first look here. I understand why people do it, but I always love the emotions that occur at the initial look as the bride walks down the aisle. I think we'll do a first touch/prayer together, but no first look.

    Nay no first looks for me. I guess technically the first look will be me walking the aisle. We've agreed he doesn't see me or my dress till the wedding starts and my grandfather is walking me down.

    Nope! However, we had a "first touch" where we both stood on either side of a door facing away from each other and held hands and just talked for a moment, then prayed. It was perfect!

    Yes! It took nothing away from the walk down the aisle and it was special to see H's reaction with no one but our photographer around. I loved that we also had some time before everything to spend together.

    Nay. I was all for it, but my FH really didn't want it. So instead we are going to do a first touch!
