    I'm choosing to do the pics after because I like the idea of him seeing me for the first time coming down the aisle. I'm hoping my photographer is quick so we don't take too much time before reception. I guess it would be less time consuming if we did photos before, but I'm a hopeless romantic.

      we decided to take individual first look photos prior to the ceremony and i am glad we did! go with what you want to create as your vision!

        We did photos of just us an hour before our ceremony too! Our ceremony was at sunset, so for lighting we needed our pics done beforehand... plus, it made everything less rushed between the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception...and let us enjoy the cocktail hour with everyone:-)

          Thanks for all your input ladies! I guess I was worried about the walking down the aisle part not being as special anymore, but our photographer did say the first look photos would be really special as well, and we would have more time to 'be in the moment' :) ... but we may keep the first look pics to a minimum, maybe 1 hour (we were going to do 2 hours), hopefully I wouldn't need to re-do hair and makeup!

            We are having our first look at the wedding, we are having our reseption under a beach house right there so it wont take to long to get back to the guest and also we are doing the TTD the next morning, so if we missed any pics we can do them at sunrise and not sunset!

              We didn't see each other until I walked down the aisle. The "first look" was the single most special part of the entire ceremony. I am very private and didn't want that experience public, but am so glad now that it was... everyone was in tears and they're all people who love you, so it's special all around. Of course, it'll be special either way you do it, so don't worry too much.

                I was wondering the same thing! I'm glad you raised teh question. After reading through all this I think I'm also going to do pictures before hand. I want to enjoy the coktail hour and reception.

                  We are still undecided on doing first look pictures. I really want to do them, because I want to lower the chances of me being a blubbering mess throughout the ENTIRE ceremony, and the ones I've seen I've really loved!

                  Matt is a little more opposed to them...he seems like he'd rather have the first look at the wedding. So I'm not sure what we'll do!

                      I thought we would do "first look" photos but FI really wants to wait until I walk down the aisle. He said he wants to be surprised and see me for the first time at that moment.
