What is a “First Look”?

June 27, 2019

Hi Lovelies! We’ve been over joyed with the amount of photos we’ve been getting from our Fab Frocks brides who have recently tied the knot! Some of our favorite photos are any type of “First Look” photos! A first look is something a lot of brides have been considering so we figured we would explain what exactly a first look is and show you some of our favorite first look photos!

What is a “First Look”?

A first look is a relatively new wedding tradition! It’s typically a semi-private meeting of the bride and groom before the ceremony. This allows them to have an intimate moment of seeing each other for the first time before they meet each other at the alter. Typically this is an emotional moment and more recently has been included in your typical wedding photos! If doing a first look with your fiancé is not your cup of tea, a lot of brides have been doing a first look with their father, their bridal party or even playing a prank on your fiancé during your first look!

Here are a few photos of what a typical first look with your fiancé could look like!

Sometimes our brides like to surprise their fiancé during a first look, here are some are some ideas that will have everyone laughing!

First look photos with the father of the bride is something that has completely stolen our hearts! The first time a father sees his daughter dressed as a bride is one of the few occasions when he can get sentimental without everyone watching him. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

Another great option is doing a first look with your bridal party! Your bridal party is made up of some of your biggest support systems so they more than always have some of the best reactions to seeing you as a bride for the first time!

But before you do a first look you need the dress! We can’t wait to help you find yours!
