Consider a first look before the ceremony. This is beneficial for so many reasons. Ask your wedding photographer to set aside a little time for the two of you to see each other looking your finest, without an audience. Your photographer can position themselves so they don't invade your personal space. You can spend an intimate moment together to mellow the intensity a bit in comparison to seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony. Don't worry, it's still incredibly special to see each other for the first time on your wedding day. It's just special without feeling like everyone is witness to you losing your composure. A first look also allows your photographer to take the majority of your posed portraits before the ceremony. You know what this means, right? You'll get to your reception faster! You'll get to eat and drink! Your guests won't have to wait for you to finish your photos, and your great grandmother will still be there instead of tiring of waiting and going home.
