In addition to the traditional First Look, there are at least five other types of reveals you can do on your wedding day! (Note: Please add around 10-15 minutes for each type of first look to your timeline) Bridesmaids Reveal. Father-Daughter First Look. First Touch. Some couples choose to use this moment to read their vows to each other privately, if they don’t want to read personally-written vows during their ceremony publicly. NOTE: Since a First Touch doesn’t involve you two seeing each other before the ceremony (only holding each other’s hand for a brief moment), it doesn’t have the same logistical benefits of a First Look. Doggy First Look. The Bride’s First Look at Herself.

If your ceremony and reception are taking place in the same location, with no gap between the ceremony and cocktail hour, I highly recommend doing a First Look.
If your ceremony (typically at a church) and reception are in different locations, with a 1.5+ hour gap in between, I would recommend not having a First Look and taking most of the portraits after the ceremony instead.
