Do you know what a First Look is? Typically, it’s a moment before the ceremony where you get to see your fiancee for the first time. You meet in a spot where just the two of you can share the priceless, emotional moment where you see your husband or wife to be before your ceremony. Although this is the tradition for First Looks, they have since evolved! You don’t have to give up the spontaneous reaction you’ll get walking down the aisle if it’s important to you. Instead, why not surprise your parents or your wedding party? The reactions are always wonderful!
There are many reasons to have a first look and lots of variations on this trend. Not sure if this is for you? I’ve picked some of the best reasons, moments and variations to help you decide.
A MOMENT WITH DAD
Possibly my all-time favourite version of a first look is with the father of the bride. You never know what to expect! Even when the entire family is sure of what will happen, he can surprise you. The teary, trembling hugs or uncontrollable giggles – either way! Taking these few moments in the morning to spend with your father is just another way to remind him of how important he is to you. A little more spotlight before he gives his little girl away. Of course this TOTALLY works with mom too. Can’t forget those amazing mothers out there! Gather both your parents for this special moment if you don’t have mom helping you with your dress, and share this exciting morning as a family.
