Modern Day Wedding Traditions: The First Look

Credit: Traveling Tree Photography

The first look is not an old tradition passed down from generations to generations.  It only started recently.  Couples found that having a first look before the ceremony allowed them to see each other and be able to take photos before.  I have had plenty of brides who choose this option over the traditional way of the groom seeing the bride for the first time when she walks down the aisle.  There are pros and cons for having a first look but regardless, you still get to see the reaction of the groom when he sees his future wife for the first time in her beautiful wedding dress.  When you have a first look, the moment is more intimate because it is just you two in a place of your choice that you get to share.  When you have a good photographer, they are able to capture that moment just perfectly.  What do you think about The First Look?  Do you prefer to share an intimate moment with your partner or would you like to wait until the time of the ceremony to see each other for the first time? Are you someone who like to stick to the old traditions or do you like to create new ones?  Let me know!
