Do you consider yourself an old school gal? Have you always believed the love of your life would see you for the first time at the end of the aisle? Are you still stuck on this decision? First, look at all these amazing photos! Why would you want to pass up such great photo ops? Oh ya, tradition… Just so you know the tradition comes from when arranged marriages were common because they did not want the couple to possibly reject one another. I’m pretty sure you won’t be doing that.
Well here are some reasons why throwing out the old tradition is a great idea.
1. It is an intimate time to spend together before the hustle and bustle of the festivities begin. You get to really soak up this day that was meant to be the start of your life of bliss; start it the right way!
2. Get over the jitters. This moment will be all about the two of you; laughing, kissing, goofing around. Spending that time together will make you forget about your nerves.
3. Get to your reception faster. Giving yourself the time before the wedding to take pictures will help you to speed up the family photos and get you to cocktail hour before all the hors’ doeuvres are gone.
4. See the priceless look on his face. I hope the day I get married my love looks at me the way this guy is looking at his bride.
It may sound or feel like you are breaking tradition but truly it is the “wedding day.” If you still aren’t comfortable with doing the first look than consider having some sort of communication. Hold hands around a corner and pray together or read each other a love note through a door. This new tradition has become popular because of how intimate it is. It is your day, make your own tradition!
