When discussing the wedding or elopement timeline, one of the things to consider is if the day should include either a first touch vs first look.
Both the first touch and first look can be important moments that can significantly impact the overall experience and the memories created during your wedding experience. Deciding which one is right for you and your partner is a conversation that should be had at the start of the planning process. Among the reasons listed below, one of the biggest impacts from this decision is the timeline!
The first touch allows you to share a private, emotional connection without seeing each other. You can keep the tradition but use a meaningful way to calm nerves and build anticipation for the ceremony.
Opting for a first look is a unique experience that breaks tradition and fills the moment with excitement and anticipation! Some couples find that seeing each other before the ceremony can help calm their nerves and make the rest of the day feel less stressful.
Ultimately, the choice between first touch vs first look is a personal one and depends on your preferences, traditions, and the atmosphere you want to create at your wedding. Some couples even choose to have the best of both worlds, enjoying the intimate first touch and the excited first look! Whatever you decide, planning and communication with all parties are key to ensuring these moments align with your vision.
Dreaming of a stunning backdrop with laid-back cabin feels for you and your guests? This venue is to die for. It’s one of my new favorites! Located in the woods, you have it all at your fingertips. During monsoon season, we’re prepped with clear umbrellas. In the brisk winter season they have heat lamps out and the option to build smores at the firepit!
