Seeing Your H2B Before The Ceremony Starts?

Recommended Posts

My fiancee and I would like to see each other before the ceremony starts. We think it would be nice to share that moment privately and to have it captured on film. 

 

Has anyone else thought about doing this?

We are definitely doing this - in fact, we are going to walk down the aisle together :) I definitely want that private, quiet moment together before the ceremony, and I also want to get some of our pictures out of the way so we don't miss our entire cocktail hour.

 

But we are also very non-traditional and we've been together forever so that is just what feels right for us! (I ADORE my dad, but I just struggle with the idea of being "given away.")

I think it's such a special private moment that I don't really want to share it with everyone. 

 

And I like the thought of being able to be at the cocktail party for a bit!

 

I don't think I will mention to anyone that we are seeing each other before....don't want to have to entertain all sorts of questions and commentary on it...which everyone seems to think they are entitled too!!

We aren't doing it, but I am not sure why!

We talked about it and decided that we would like to leave it until I walk in with my dad.

 

We are also non-traditional and this is just what we decided.

 

There are a lot of women on here doing a 'first look'. Totally just preference.

A part of me kind of wishes we were doing it, because when he tears up or anyone else for that matter, so will I... I just hope I can control it!!!!

We're doing it. Our ceremony is just before sunset, which leaves us very little time for pics before it gets too dark. We figured sharing a "special moment" before the ceremony was better than rushing around stressed out afterwards!

If our photographer will let us do some photos before we are going to.  I want to enjoy the cocktail hour with everyone!  Our ceremony is at 3, so I'm not sure when the best time to do photos will be.

@@puravida2015 - that's the main reason I wanted to do a first look :)  Need to get the jitters out so I don't ugly-cry down the aisle. I also like the idea of spending time with our guests during cocktails before dinner.

My pictures would be AWFUL!!!!! LOL I'll have to talk to him and see what he thinks. We're not really into tradition so I'm hoping he'll be okay with it. And yes, it'll be great to spend cocktail hour with the guests. Usually that part is completely missed.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
