3 Reasons Why You Should Do The First Look at Your Wedding (Traditional vs Modern)

An intimate moment that many couples look forward to on their wedding day is the first look. The first look is a special moment where the soon-to-be-wed couple chooses a time to see each other shortly before the wedding ceremony, unlike the traditional style where the bride and groom don’t see each other on their wedding day until it’s time for the bride to walk down the aisle.

Most couples find it difficult to choose between these two wedding moments, and you may still be trying to decide which is the more appealing way to see your significant other for the first time. If you are still contemplating which way to go, this article is for you. Below are some of the reasons why a first look will add to your big day!

  • It Helps To Calm The Nerves

Many couples get nervous at the thought of seeing their partner for the first time on their wedding day. Many people are usually shy around a crowd, making them anxious because the bride and groom are after all the center of attention.

If this is true in your case, the first look may be best for you. It helps you to calm down and relax while you privately see your bride/groom with very few people watching.

  • You Can Take All Your Portraits Before The Wedding

Another advantage of doing the first look is that you and your partner will have the opportunity to take your portraits before the ceremony. Remember, at this point, you are still calm and collected, and that’s perfect for beautiful and memorial photos.

Many have found this to be a better option than waiting until the wedding ceremony is over, and you’re both looking a bit flushed. The first look is perfect during the winter as it enables you to take advantage of the clear weather in terms of natural lighting.

  • It Gives You And Your Partner A Private Moment

The simple fact is, the first look might be the only moment you and your partner will get to share in a private moment before the day’s celebration commences.

It’s when you both take a deep breath before friends and family start arriving to celebrate your special day with you, after which things get exciting and a little bit crazy at the wedding ceremony and reception.

If you are the traditional type of couple, or if you are already running on a tight schedule on your wedding day, choose the classic style of seeing your bride as she walks down the aisle. If you are wanting something a little more private and intimate the first look is just that.
