So - we've recently decided to do a first look. I wanted to do it from the start but my FH wasn't as enthusiastic about it. Then one of the guys he worked with got married and highly recommended it to him...so now, we're doing it...yaaayyy!!
I went to a wedding last weekend and am stealing an idea...
I went out and got a 2nd dress, a tea length dress, and am going to wear that for the first look. Yeah, it kind of defeats the purpose a little, because the plan is for him to think that's my wedding dress, but I'm going to change into my gown after the first look. I'm sooooo excited about it though! We get the special moment of a first look, but also the surprise when I come down the sandy isle in my gown. He's constantly surprising me, so I'm ecstatic for this on our big day!!! :) :) :)
I got a veil and everything to go with this other dress....and dyed shoes orange (his favorite color/one of our wedding colors) to wear with the short dress!
Our photographer, videographer, and coordinator know about this, and even though we won't get to spend as much time at the cocktail hour as we planned with the first look (bc I want formals in my real gown, too) I think it'll be 100% worth it!
8 DAYS! AHHHH!!
