While many couples still prefer the more traditional route of not seeing each other before the ceremony, a growing trend is for the bride and groom to see each other before the wedding in a “first look”.
The moment before the first look is magical. The couple’s hearts are racing and filled with anticipation to seeing each other. The first look usually starts with a joyful encounter. Many brides like to surprise the groom with some creative ways of showing up in front of him. However, it is also an emotional moment between the couple where many get teary. Should a first look be arranged or should you follow the tradition? The following first look moments should answer your questions.
