9 Tips to Get a First Look Before Wedding

A hottest trend is for the bride and groom to see each other before the wedding in a 'first look'. While many couples still prefer the more traditional route of not seeing each other before the ceremony the first look trend has grown immensely in popularity. And this is one of the most intimate and best moments for lovely new couple. Here are 9 tips to get a first look before wedding.

Capture the happiness couple

Tips #1

The moment before the first look is magical. Your heart is racing and you are all smiles. You get to enjoy seeing each other for the first time on your wedding day without all the other guests' eyes on you. You can truly be yourself and react the way you want to your significant other's gorgeous wedding day glow!

Tips #2

Get emotional. This private moment between the two of you can get teary. Plus, it gives the groom a chance to express his love of the dress before the officiant starts talking over him!
