This tradition has held solid today, but thankfully, it’s for an entirely different reason. Many brides and grooms feel that it adds a touch of excitement and anticipation to the big day. That look the love of your life gives you as you make your grand entrance down the aisle is sure to be one that you won’t soon forget.
However, many couples are now throwing caution to the wind and ignoring this time-tested tradition to spend time with their sweetheart on the day of the wedding. Here are a few reasons you may want to consider doing the same:
If you’ve ever seen the many pictures of couples all over Pinterest who have chosen to get a glimpse of each other before the ceremony, I know I’m not alone in saying “wow.” With one look at these unique photos you can see the true love and heartfelt emotion present between the two people. Tracy & David Photography said that they find bringing the bride and groom together for a quiet, private meeting before the ceremony can create more emotional pictures than if they meet down the aisle.
One of the many other reasons couples choose to meet before they exchange vows is to relax. Spending time with your loved one often makes for a much more relaxed environment and gives you both time to share your feelings before you meet at the altar.
If you’re still not convinced about this idea of breaking tradition, take it from real life bride and groom Danielle and Kyle who spoke to Bridal Guide saying, “For couples who will think it will take away from the moment of seeing each other during the ceremony, it did not ruin anything! It made us able to enjoy the moment.”
Whether you opt to see each other before the ceremony or lock eyes for the first time when walking down the aisle, the feelings present between the two of you will be remembered for a lifetime.
