Seeing Each Other Before The Ceremony? Part 3

And now we come to the final part of our three part series on should a bride and groom see each other before the wedding. Here we will look at the advantages and disadvantages to seeing each other before the wedding.

Advantages of Seeing Each Other Before the Ceremony:

One big advantage is taking some of the formal pictures before your ceremony and getting you to your reception faster. Before the ceremony your make-up and hair are fresh and your excitement is starting to build, so you will look even better for your pictures. You also get that first special moment with just the two of you.

Bride and Groom Meet on the StairsDisadvantages to Seeing Each Other Before the Ceremony:

If tradition is really important to you, then losing out on the tradition of the groom seeing the bride come down the aisle as the first time he sees her on their wedding day might really disappoint you. Another disadvantage is that you have to fit one more thing into your busy wedding day schedule.

Really the decision is up to you, so don’t feel pressured to do what someone else wants you to do. Speak with your fiance and come to a decision together. Have a great wedding day!
