Expectations of a First Look!- Wedding Planning Tips

If you’ve never seen your guy cry or get emotional, you can’t expect him to be super emotional on your wedding day. Some guys just hug their bride and never cry, and that’s ok. Just enjoy your day and try not to put too much pressure on him. Sometimes the stress and the nerves of the day can overwhelm a groom and make it hard to express his emotions. It’s a lot to take in all at once. This is a great reason to do a first look!


Here’s what one groom had to say about doing a first look:


“At first I was very hesitant to agree to a first look at my wedding. I had always envisioned the first time seeing my soon to be wife would be as she was escorted down the aisle by her father. I was very close-minded about the thought of a first look initially, but I am SO GLAD that I decided to take part in one. Your first thought may be that a first look takes away from that special moment when you see your bride for the first time, but for me, the first look ADDED so much more joy to an incredible day. I was able to see Audrey in a very intimate environment before the ceremony because of our first look. It was an

experience that I will never regret agreeing to or forget. It was very special to be able to see how beautiful she looked, and the experience literally took my breath away. If you choose to include a first look as part of your wedding day, you will certainly not regret it! It was a unique and incredible experience that words truly cannot express. I would recommend a first look to everyone getting married. The experience is breathtakingly incredible and was one of the highlights of my wedding day.”
