"First Look" Alternatives

I hear a lot of couples wanting the intimacy of a “first look” before they say “I Do” without actually having a first look. While it can be a special moment, it's not the only way to make your wedding day memorable. Here are some fun and unique ideas to consider:


  • Have a first touch - Instead of seeing each other, hold hands or touch through a door or curtain. It's a sweet moment that can still calm your nerves and build anticipation.

  • Write love letters - Take some time before the ceremony to write love letters to each other. Exchange them right before you say "I do" for a heartfelt moment.

  • Share a meal - Have a private breakfast or lunch together before the ceremony. It's a great way to spend quality time together and fuel up for the day ahead.

  • Do a group activity - Get your wedding party together for a fun activity like bowling, mini-golf, or even a group workout. It's a great way to bond and relieve any pre-wedding jitters.

  • Have a pre wedding, last dance - Take a moment to have a “last dance” with your partner before your first dance as husband and wife.


Remember, your wedding day is about celebrating your love with your partner. There are plenty of ways to make it special that don't involve a first look. Get creative and have fun with it!
