Many couples are now seeing that having a planned first look alleviates stress throughout the entire wedding day. For those type-A brides, seeing each other beforehand seems to be the most logical decision for many reasons. By completing most of your photos prior to the ceremony you are then allowing more time to relax + casually finish up the rest of your photos afterward, without that feeling of rush. Another reason that brides, in particular, choose to do a first look beforehand is because of those "can't help it" tears! If the bride (or even the groom!) cries during the ceremony, their eyes may be puffy + makeup could be damaged for the pictures, after the ceremony. Creating that first look, to many couples, ends up being the best way to accomplish getting the most, if not all, of the photos out of the way while still looking the best. Plus, it allows for more time to be spent with your guests + to celebrate your marriage!
