If you’re looking for ways to save money on your wedding, consider doing a first look! Believe it or not, they can actually save you money! Here’s how:
- Less Photography Coverage – All your formal photographs are done AHEAD of the ceremony when there are less distractions. Couples who do their formal photographs AFTER the ceremony often get sidetracked with their guests as they are walking out to take photos, or are waiting on a family member. Incidents like this can put you behind schedule, and you may have to purchase an additional hour for your photographer as to ensure you have them to the end.
- Skipping Out on Cocktail Hour – Cocktail hours typically occur because the bridal party is off doing photos. When you opt for a first look, all the formal photos are done so you can go straight into dinner and skip the cocktail hour (and it’s expenses) all together!
- Less DJ Coverage – No cocktail hour equals one less hour of coverage with your DJ! Another reason why first looks are awesome!
- Bonus – Couples who DO opt for a first look still take 15 minutes to do some post wedding photographs, so you get more bang for your buck. Without a first look, you’ll only get one shot at bridal portraits!
