You have no idea how excited I am about this post – just ask Emily! I sent her my inspiration for this post a while back, and I’ve been dying to share it with y’all ever since. I wish I had seen this idea before my wedding, as I would have done it in a heartbeat.
As you know, I’m a traditional gal, so I didn’t see my handsome groom before I walked down the aisle, and like I said before, it was the right decision for us. But had I been able to hold BDK’s hand moments before walking down the aisle, I know my jitters would have instantly been calmed.
Like having your daddy step in, we’re seeing another twist on the first look: some couples are opting for a few sweet moments before their ceremony to just be together, but without seeing each other. If you tend to get nervous, or know that you’ll want that little bit of extra time with your beau, but don’t want to fully commit to the first look, this is a great option. Not to mention, you get these amazing images to cherish for the rest of your lives!
