Still Not Sold on the First Look?
A Few Other Ideas:
At the end of the day, even if there are 100 great reasons to do a first look, you still need to go with what makes you and your partner the most comfortable. My advice to couples, however, is if you’re opting out of the first look, to set aside a short period of time for a blind first look, where the groom’s eyes are covered, but you still get a few short moments together alone before the ceremony. This still lets you have a moment together to reconnect, it makes for really cute photos, and will definitely help calm your nerves before you walk the aisle. I’ve seen couples talk to each other through a door, across a wall, and even a few sneak some sweet blindfolded kisses.
