Having a First Look Before the Wedding is a Good Idea

In the old days, it was considered bad luck to see the bride before the wedding. But in modern times, this tradition is one that you can break to begin a better one of your own. There are several reasons why this tradition should be changed. Discover why having a first look before the wedding is actually a good idea.


The 5 Reasons To Plan That First Look


1. A Private Moment for You Both
A first look extends you a little time to be just the two of you and share some private time. On your actual wedding day, you will be busy greeting guests and checking on preparations that there will be very little time to check in with your partner to see how they are feeling. This way it gives you a little time to spend together all alone.

2. Make the Moment Last Longer
Most couples say that once the day comes, everything goes so fast they wish they could slow it down to enjoy every second a little longer. This extra time is just for you as a couple to share an intimate moment without the ticking clock of schedules and timelines.

3. Calm Pre- Wedding Jitters

Consider doing a first look to calm both your nerves - wedding planning services in Philadelphia PA - Philadelphia on the day coordinator wedding - wedding ideas blog - blog by K'Mich
With so much to do, it’s natural to feel a little overwhelmed. What better way to calm your pre-wedding jitters and make sure that everything will be perfect than to give it a test drive? Plus, that first moment you lock eyes will be magical. It will reaffirm to both of you that being together is the best thing in the world. You can arrange to have your wedding photos taken during this time when things are a little more relaxed and comfortable.

4. Free Up Time in Your Wedding Timeline
As mentioned above, if you have your wedding photos done during your first look it will free up some extra time in your timeline for other things. Your timeline will be extremely busy with things to do and you will welcome a few minutes to catch your breath. Are you about to make these timeline mistakes?


5. Start a New Tradition
Breaking an old tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding can feel pretty good. The royals did their own thing when they were getting married. He stepped away from a years-old royal tradition that's unheard of; he wore a wedding band for the first time. I guess the royal grandmum wasn't too pleased with that. And, Meghan walked down the aisle solo and made a speech, codos to both on doing things differently.

  4. I am all for starting new traditions as the old ones can be so outdated and not really applicable in the modern world. Thanks for sharing these great tips and linking up with me.

  5. It does seem like a nice idea to start your own tradition. But as a pastor's wife, I've attended many weddings and there is also something so amazing about watching the groom face when he gets that first glimpse of his bride! But it's truly something that can be personalized according to the bride and groom's preferance.

  6. I know this is tradition for the bride and groom not to see each other but your post made me curious as to the why. The first explanation I found (there could be more) was that it came from a time when it was common for arranged marriages. It ensured that the groom would go through with the marriage regardless of the bride's identity or appearance. As for today, I think it's ok to do whatever you wish!!

    1. Thanks for sharing. We actually left it out (your piece) because we didn't want to bore our brides-to-be with too much detail on this. We will look into revising and adding this piece in. Again, thanks for sharing and stopping by #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 7.
