Lol my mom and dad were just watching some wedding show and they mentioned the "first look" and my dad was like "what is that?". So my mom explained and my dad was like "but did M (me) and D (DH) do that?" My mom says, "They got ready together so no."Dad, "But then they had a first look."Mom, "ummm sure, when D zipped up M's dress and she turned around, I guess that was the first look."Dad, "Yes, of course it is. What the hell else is a 'first look'?"Mom, "People make big deal out of getting ready separately and then having this magical moment before the ceremony to see each other."Dad, "That's silly. What the hell is the point of that?"Lol, yeah that's my dad. So yeah, we stayed the night before in our hotel room together. We woke up, helped each other get ready, then went out to take pictures with the WP. And that was it. I didn't want this big "moment" with everyone watching and the photographer waiting to take pictures. I definetely wasn't waiting until the ceremony. Waiting until the ceremony seems antiquated to me- a throw back to a day in age when people didn't know their soon-to-be spouses and wouldn't see them until they were to be married. We lived together before the wedding. I couldn't imagine waiting until the ceremony and honestly, I didn't understand why we couldn't get ready together like any other day.
Are "First Look" and "Aisle Unveiling" my only options? What if I just want to get ready just like any other day and ask FH to zip me up? Does it have to be this big todo? Discuss.
