If you’re battling between saving tradition of the wedding day and sharing a first look, this alternative option is for you.
Did you know there’s a happy medium between not doing a first look and doing a first look? Let me introduce you to a first touch.
One of the biggest downsides to doing a first look is that you lose the traditional element of having your partner see you for the first time as you come down the aisle. But with a first touch, you still get to keep that tradition and add such an emotional moment to your day.
In my experience, having a first look does not take away from your partner’s reaction to you walking down the aisle. But could you imagine how much more emotional they’d be if you had the suspense of touching each other, and maybe even reading your notes together, but without seeing each other before the ceremony?
Imagine this, you’ve gotten dressed (which is when everything starts to feel real), you’re standing back to back or maybe separated by a door or corner of a wall, holding hands and reading a note from your most favorite person. All the anticipation of the day kind of eases away hearing their voice and you feel your nerves give way to pure excitement to be marrying your best friend.
Sharing this alternative option to a first look is such a great way to add time together on your wedding day while preserving tradition.
