The First Look He Wasn’t Expecting — Wife’s Dad Plays Silly Prank On Husband-To-Be

A man dressed as a bride taps a groom on the shoulder. The groom's back is toward the man

There are so many heartwarming moments to include on a wedding day. One of the most common, of course, is a first look — this is often the moment when a groom sees his bride in her dress for the first time, and it takes place just a few minutes before the ceremony. You’ll find tons of videos online of these special moments, many of which are full of happy tears. Sydney Ward’s first look, on the other hand, includes tears of laughter — and she has her dad to thank.

While Sydney’s husband-to-be prepares to see his beautiful bride, her dad finishes up final details for the best prank ever. Rather than having Sydney show off her gorgeous look, Dad plans to be there instead. Best of all, though, he’s adorned just like a bride, white dress and all. Needless to say, this groom is taken aback by what he sees when he turns around!

The only thing better than the wholesome prank itself is the groom’s hilarious reaction! He leans into this silly setup, giving his soon-to-be father-in-law a huge hug — the two of them even pretend like they’re going to kiss!

First Look With Bride Turns Out to be a Wholesome Prank With Dad

“The way I could see your dad’s shoulders shaking as he held back a laugh right before,” someone in the comments points out.

“I love how you dad tried to do a girly touch,” another person notes.

“The toilet paper veil tied the whole look together,” someone else says, prompting Sydney to reply, “He did that part on his own.”
