It’s still a controversy. Do you see each other before your wedding ceremony? Honestly, most of our clients ARE seeing each other, about 70%. We find it’s usually the groom that doesn’t want to see his bride before the wedding. Go figure.
There are a lot of pro’s and con’s to this and we’ve talked about it before on this series here.
- Do what you want to do.
- Remember, sometimes it really helps to calm you down.
- Your vendors will setup an epic First Look. Just you and your groom/bride (and a photographer and videographer capturing the moment). Most of the time the groom’s cry, not the bride. See the photos below.
- Be flexible. Inclement weather and other situations may change your opinion about seeing each other.
- Almost every single one of our clients that saw each other, were happy they did. They enjoyed their day and their wedding reception so much more.
here’s a glimpse of real First Looks (this could be you!)

Or you could not see each other but take some cute photos like the one in our featured photo with our bride Erin and groom Zach.
