What is a Bridesmaids' First Look?

March 4, 2022

What is a bridesmaids' first look? It's exactly what it sounds like. You'll get into your gown and accessories in a room separate from your girls. Usually with the help of your mom, mother-in-law or other women you are closest with.

Make sure to block off ten to fifteen minutes on your wedding day timeline so the photographer is ready. It takes time to get everyone in place beforehand. Then it's the big reveal! Your bridesmaids see you all at once. Expect lots of squeals, hugs and happy tears. Everyone is going to want to give you a hug. We love the group hug shown below. It takes time, so plan ahead. It's definitely a sweet moment you'll always cherish.

We recommend a bridesmaid' first look if you have the time and space. No one wants to feel rushed, especially if you have a large wedding party. When there is a lot of commotion and chattering in a room, things can become overwhelming. Getting ready in a private space offers a little quiet time before the craziness of the day begins. Stepping into your gown for the first time on your wedding day is when the "this is it" feeling kicks in. The bridesmaids first look slows everyone down for a moment to enjoy what's happening. You get to put aside the hustle and bustle of the morning and be in the moment with your favorite ladies.
