Are you doing the "First Look" or are you both sticking with the tradition to meet for the first time at the alter?
Whatever the decision is, you both have to agree on it. More and more couples are putting aside the traditions, and are opting to do a first look because this gives them more time to do more portraits together, rather than rushing during the cocktail hour. Usually, couples that take time to do photos prior to the ceremony, will find time to join in with their guests at the Cocktail hour.
