Conversations about the first look

…one late night while (not) studying over boba…

Me: Hey, do you want to do a first look?
Him: Um…I do not know what that is, therefore, probably not.
Me: Ok.
{tapping of fingers on table}
Him: Aren’t you going to tell me what it is?
Me: Well you don’t want to do it.
Him: {look of annoyance} Ok, what is it?
Me: It’s when the couple meets before the ceremony. Often times, one of them taps the other on the back or something similar, and then the other person turns around, and then the photographer is supposed to take pictures as you ooo and ahh at one another. It’s like a “ta-dah! Look at how lucky you are to be marrying this gorgeous person!” before the ceremony.
Him: Oh. So, this is something that doesn’t cost money?
Me: Correct.
Him: And it sounds like I don’t have to do anything except be there, which I already will be doing.
Me: Yup.
Him: Yeah I don’t care. As long as it doesn’t take effort or cost money, we can do it if you want.

Leave it to the boy to make any decision based on cost, effort, and whether or not there will be free food.

We’ll be seeing each other before the ceremony because we are walking down the aisle together. But a first look is still up for debate, I can’t decide if it would make me feel totally uncomfortable or just plain happy.

How do you feel about the “first look”?
