Types of First Looks to Consider on Your Wedding Day

The Anticipation to see THE BRIDE

So maybe you aren’t so sure about a “first look” with your soon to be spouse? But did you know there are other first looks too! There are a handful of different first looks. Each of them can add a lot of fun emotion to your wedding day! The anticipation to see YOU, the stunning bride is huge for not only your soon to be husband but for your loved ones and girls too!

Both of these “first looks” don’t take up much additional time in your timeline at all but they sure do make for memorable moments that will last a life time!

A first look with your Bridesmaids

  • ¬†For this type of first look instead of having all of the ladies help you slip into your wedding gown you can do it differently. You can have your maid of honor and mom or someone extra close help you get dressed first. Then, once you are all ready the other girls step into the room to see you all at once. The reactions are always priceless and full of amazing oohs and ahhs as they look at the bride for the first time.

First look with The Father of the Bride

  • Whether this is done with the father of the bride or a grandparent it is equally as amazing. There is just something so sweet about a father figure seeing his sweet girl for the first time as a bride. As a momma of a little girl, it melts my heart EVERY TIME. The tears roll and the hugs are long. This is such a beautiful moment that we always love capturing. It is also a great way to include your parents into your day.
