There are so many options -- from a classic white ball gown to an edgy and mod jumpsuit -- that will make a bride look stunning on her wedding day. But it's more about the anticipation of the couple seeing each other for the very first time on the day they've chosen to commit, than it is about just the dress. You've spent a lot of time choosing every detail of how'll you'll look, from your dress to the shoes and your makeup, and you want to make it a romantic moment where you soak it all in. Doing a first look makes for a great photo shoot and creates an intimate moment together before you meet up with family and friends. It doesn't matter if the big reveal happens on the ceremony aisle or the day before -- it's about the feeling you have in that moment, and for a lot of couples that's very emotional. Take a look at these first look photos if you don't believe us.
Fresh new idea: "I went out and got a second dress, a tea-length dress, and am going to wear that for the first look. Yeah, it kind of defeats the purpose a little, but the plan is for him to think that's my wedding dress, then 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 aisle in my gown. He's constantly surprising me, so I'm ecstatic for this on our big day!" - kls33145
