There is no right or wrong decision, but the choice has to be yours and no matter what you choose, it will be delightful!
Tip: Seeking the recommendation of your professional photographer can help make the most of that magical moment!
Here are a few of the pros and cons to consider:
Pro: You will save time and so that you can celebrate with your family and friends. This will lessen the stress load and help you relax and enjoy your day.
Con: You will not have your first look at the altar. More than not, a moment many never forget.
Pro: An early first look could help ease your nerves and ease those pre-ceremony jitters along with having a little extra time to capture that exact moment.
Con: Does having other people around add stress? Only you and your partner know how this is going to affect the other. Communicate with your partner and discuss how the other feels.
Pro: You can have an intimate moment and get tears out before the ceremony. In addition, you will have plenty of time before the ceremony to touch up your make-up and any details that you might have.
Con: You will have to get up earlier to make time for additional photo shoots; this might be challenging if you are one that requires more sleep and rest considering the prior night’s rehearsal dinner event!
Above are a few pros and cons to ponder when making your final decision. We hope you enjoyed the information and it gives you options to consider.
Tip: An intimate sweet surprise……
Keep in mind there are a few things the bride can do to still make the first look special without completely foregoing the first look at the altar. Consider not wearing your veil, or changing your accessories to not give your entire look away. You can add the finishing touches before your ceremony as a romantic intimate gesture for your partner.
