    At this moment, no. My fiancé doesn’t particularly want to do one. Although hoping my photographer can sway him in favor of one 😜. Would be really nice for the extra time for photos!!

    Yea. Our photographer mentioned it would be best since the ceremony space is so small and after hashing out the pros and cons we decided to go with a 1st look.

    It’s a nay for us. Extra time for the photographer and we want to share that moment with our guests. It’s one of my favorite parts of attending a wedding—watching a couples reaction to each other. 💕

    Im not doing a first look but I do enjoy seeing photographs and videos from other people doing it. It's super sweet!

    Nay. My fiance wants to see me for the first time when we're walking down the aisle. I am choosing to do a first look with my dad.

    Nay...we both want to first see each other at the aisle. Everyone is different, whichever way you choose is special to the two of you. Smiley smile

    More than likely yes! For the extra 1:1 time before everything happens! I want to make sure we get some pictures all together before the big moment and this is one way to assure that!

    Yay. We’re reciting our own vows privately to each other beforehand because we’d both not say all we want in front of other people. I think it’ll help relax the nerves too.

    That's a great idea, Emily! Will you both recite a shorter version of your vows at the reception then or skip them?

    I won't be doing a first look. I've always wanted the first time the man I'm marrying to see me is when I'm walking down the aisle.
