    Hey fellow brides- Past and Future! 


    How many of you will do (or have done) a first look?


    My fiance and I are getting married at 5 pm and our reception is at 8. Unfortunately, we will miss out on the sunlight so we have no choice but to do a "First look". At first I was not happy about this, but my photog says its his favorite thing to photograph and after doing research, I have seen a lot of first sessions executed so adorably that I am ok with it now.


    What I need help with- is finding cute blindfolds. Are there any former brides who have done a first look and know where to get them? I have looked online but all I get are bondage websites lol. I'm looking for blindfolds that say "bride" and "groom". I have searched on Etsy and Pinterest, but have been unsuccessful. I have seen them in photo sessions of other brides. Do any past brides have a vendor they have purchased blindfolds from?


    And future brides- do you plan on doing a first look? Where will you do yours? Will you involve your bridal party?

      I wasn't able to find ones with Bride and Groom, but came across this on Etsy:




      The vendor is out of the UK but ships to the US.  Hope this helps!

        Thanks for the info! Unfortunately, the shop says its temporarily closed and does not know when they will return, otherwise these would be perfect! They are so cute! I can probably make my own though now that I am looking at them. Thanks for the lead.

          Oh, I like the idea of blindfolds! We are also doing First Look photos.


          I don't know where to find what you're looking for, but I'd love to hear from brides who did this - did the blindfold affect your hair and make-up?  I think I'd be too afraid to mess things up!
