Wedding Wednesday: First Look or No First Look?

Wedding Wednesday: First Look or No First Look?
It's Wedding Wednesday and that means we have made it halfway through the week! Woo! Today I wanted to talk about doing a first look. Did you do one? Did you skip the first look? I would love to know your reasoning for either!

I think this choice is totally personal and I have seen so many people do it all different ways. I say to each their own and whatever works best for the couple.

Before we decided what we were going to do, I looked online for what others did and their reasoning behind their decision! In this wedding planning process, I've found you can find pretty much any topic online and it is so helpful! Wedding Wire has a fun little 'First Look' quiz, they also had some discussion boards here and here, as well as an article about it! The discussion boards are my favorite to browse through because you can read about what other brides did and their advice on different things.

My fiancé and I discussed this and it's funny because we sometimes have different opinions on things (like he wants a cake and I don't) but for this, we both had exactly the same thoughts and feelings on this particular topic. 

We will not be doing a first look. It was really important to us that we see each other for the first time as I walk down the aisle. 

Photos are really important to me- obviously for sentimental purposes but also for my blog so I am able to share our special day with all of you. However, we both agreed that being in the moment and making sure that we had that moment in the church was far more important. 

With the way our wedding day schedule is drafted, we actually shouldn't have issues with photos and should have plenty of time to get the shots that we want. We hired an incredible photographer/videographer team (more on that in a later post) so I'm confident that a first look isn't even necessary! 

We have both been imagining the moment I walk down the aisle and even talk about it from time to time. I get butterflies every time I think about it!
