How to have a first look

Are you wondering how to have a first look? You know you want one…you just don’t know how to have one. In this blog, we will help you understand what a first look is and how to successfully pull off this awesome moment for you and your fiance.

What is a first look?

A first look is a special moment when a couple sees each other for the very first time on their wedding day. This is one of life’s moments that a couple will remember forever. The first look is different for each couple. Some couples want a special private moment, other couples don’t mind if friends and their family watch on.

A special memory photographed forever

There are so many memories stored up in our brain. Moments from our lives that will always be cherished. The first look is such a great moment on the wedding day that can beautifully be captured so you and your future family can always look back and remember the way you felt. You will always remember the way you were touched and held as you saw each other for the first time on your wedding day. 

Who should be at the first look

 For some couples, they prefer having their first look in a location for their friends and family to watch and take in the moment with them. Other couples would rather the moment to be private for just the two of them to be together alone. 

Where to have a first look

A first look can happen in many locations. The most important thing to take into account is picking a location that will make you feel the best. If you are interested in having friends and family watch and be an active part of the first look, maybe an outdoor location would be best. This would give your friends an opportunity to look on from a window or a location off to the side.

If you are looking for a first look alone, perhaps you would like to have the first look in your hotel suite or a private room in the church.

How to have a First Touch

What is a first touch?

Are you wondering how to have a first touch? The first touch is a moment for couples who want to hold true to the tradition of not seeing each other until the ceremony. Where the first time they lay eyes on each other is when the other is walking down the aisle.

Why the first touch can relieve anxiety

For many couples, the first touch and the first look is such a relief of anxiety that can lead up to the ceremony. Walking down the aisle in front of all of your guests can be incredibly overwhelming. By seeing each other or even talking to each other before walking down, couples are relieved of this stress.

Special ideas for the first look

A great way to privately share what your fiance means to you is by reading your vows or a personal letter to them during the first look. These words are truly heartfelt and special coming moments before you say ‘I Do’.

If you and your fiance are religious, taking a moment to pray together is a great way to start off your marriage. These are beautiful pictures that will be hung on the walls of your house forever.
