Im so undecided on this! I want the special time together so I dont cry and have ugly face coming down the aisle ... but i want the "special moment" when he sees me coming down the aisle.... so torn!!

I feel the same exact way! I cry so easily I'm afraid I'll start bawling during the ceremony! Lol. And I also don't want to miss the entire cocktail hour for pictures! Especially since we're paying extra for it and also I hate when the bride and groom are never at their cocktail hours! I don't wanna miss our whole wedding to take pics!

 

Maybe we will take some pictures before but in a way where we can't see each other? I've seen pics like that and they're so cute!

I had never really thought of doing this but reading through these posts makes me consider it! Everyone has such good points about not really being able to enjoy that moment when you're in the midst of the ceremony. Definitely something I will think about now!

I thought about it so I could get my pics out the way but I really want my kids and family to see his face when I see his face for the first time. I think that is one of the sweetest moments of the entire wedding, the look in his eye when he sees you all dolled up. Priceless and I want to share that experience with my guests

My best friend just got married and she did a first look.  She told me that it was extremely intimate for them and she was so glad to have that time with just her fiance.  I am debating on weather or not I want to do the first look.  Part of me wants to so that I am not a sobbing mess walking down the isle.

Haha!  We are doing a first look.  I'm hoping that will limited the waterfall of happy tears during the ceremony! :)

We are doing a first look for many of the reasons already spoken here. We want to get some pictures of just the two of us out of the way so we can take pictures with our guests and family and not miss out on too much of the fun.

 

I won't be wearing my veil or have my bouquet during the first look so I've convinced myself that I will look different/more bridal when I actually walk down the aisle with my dad so I'll still get that special moment and reaction I'm hoping for!

For those worried about being a sobbing mess and ruining make up -- won't your face already be done though??

Or is it more just being a sobbing mess in general? Hehe

I am so torn on this one! I think the first look would allow me to cry my little heart out and then get it together for my ceremony (I'm definitely a crier haha) but at the same time theres the whole "seeing the bride before the wedding" tradition and seeing his face while he's standing there

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
