How to Sneak a Little Alone Time with Your Significant Other on the Big Day

How to Sneak a Little Alone Time with Your Significant Other on the Big Day

The day that you’ve been dreaming about for months is just around the corner and the excitement is bubbling up. This is likely the biggest day in you and your fiancé’s lives—and certainly, as a couple it is—and it’s exhilarating to think about spending the day celebrating with your closest family and friends. 


The day can go by quickly and it’s easy to get swept up in the excitement, but don’t forget to celebrate with your spouse. It can be difficult to steal away when the spotlight is shining on you, but there are a few ways to sneak away for a little alone time on your wedding day. 


First Look 


Tradition states that the bride and groom shouldn’t see each other on the day of the wedding until the bride starts walking down the aisle. That sentiment certainly still holds true for some, but the school of thought has shifted a bit as couples start participating in first looks. This increasingly popular custom is the perfect opportunity to steal away just you two—and the photographer—for a bit before the chaos ensues. Not only is it a great way to get over any nerves or anxiousness before walking down the aisle, it also serves as a fantastic photo opportunity. Some brides even note that their intimate first look photos are some of their favorite from the whole day. 


Sweetheart Table 


If you are having a sit-down dinner, one of the easiest ways to steal a few private moments with your new spouse is to forgo the large head table in favor of a sweetheart table. Not only does this let your bridal party sit with their significant others or dates, it also gives you some time to yourself. You might be interrupted by guests wanting to say hello, but not enough can be said about the intimacy of a sweetheart table at a wedding. 


Steal Away During Dances 


When the lights go low and the dance floor is packed with people, it’s the perfect opportunity to slip away for a few moments with your new spouse. It might mean missing out on one of your favorite songs, but it’s worth it to take a quiet stroll to a secluded spot with your significant other.  While it might only be a few minutes before people come looking for you and drag you back to the fun-filled reception, a few minutes enjoying each other’s company in peace and quiet and reminisce on the day is more than enough.
