Deciding whether or not to have a first look at your wedding can be a DEFINITE topic of discussion between you and your future spouse. One of you may want to have one and the other doesn’t. Or you might (hopefully) both be on the same page about it. But what are most people doing when it comes to a first look?

A new poll recently revealed that 45% of couples actually choose to have a first look before their wedding, which means more than half of you aren’t. While we’re personally big fans of doing a first look (you can read our first look advice here), we definitely think it’s sweet that couples choose to take a more traditional approach, too.

In addition to 45% of couples doing a first look before the wedding, it also revealed that not as many couples are writing their own wedding vows (only 36%), 3 out of 4 dads are walking their children down the aisle, and 63% of brides feel some sort of pressure when it comes to their wedding.

Can you relate to these latest statistics? What kind of pressure are you feeling to have the “perfect” wedding?
