Wedding Wednesdays: First Kiss Etiquette

Something every bride thinks about on their big day; the first kiss as Mr. and Mrs. You may have kissed your significant other a thousand times before but this is a whole different level of lip lock. How long do you want it to last for? Do you want multiple smooches? Are you planning to have the groom sweep you off your feet as it happens? All of these are great questions to have when thinking about this "happily ever after" moment. Here are some tips to get you prepared for your first kiss!

Practice Makes Perfect
You and your groom should practice the smooch until it feels completely comfortable. Hold the kiss longer than you normally would to ensure the photographer captures the moment and your guests are able to catch a glimpse. It is something you will be able to cherish forever.

Stay True to Yourself
Don't over-exaggerate the passion in your kiss just because it's your wedding day if it's not something you normally do. When you make drastic or severe changes at a moment's notice or catch someone by surprise, you may end up regretting the way it made you both feel. It shouldn't feel forced; the more natural it is, the better it is.

Don't Surprise Each Other
If you plan on doing something a little extra, like a dramatic dip during the first kiss, make sure you're both on board and know about it beforehand so it goes as smoothly as possible. You wouldn't want to end up on the floor, though it would probably be just as memorable. Take your time with this move and let your romantic juices flow!

Stop Overthinking It
Again, practice makes perfect but only if the final kiss both looks and feels natural. It's when you are trying to do everything correctly that you may fumble and seem unnatural. Your wedding is just one day out of the rest of your lives together. In a few years, it will be a faint memory. Just take a deep breath, pucker up, and let it happen!

First Hug and Then Kiss
What a lot of couples don't realize is naturally, we embrace before kissing someone. So if this is what feels comfortable to you, hug it out before laying a wet one on your significant other!

Avoid the Photobomb
You may want to ask your pastor or officiant to step aside during your kiss. Depending on how you feel about the situation, you may not want them in this everlasting photo.

Tips for a Not Awkward First Kiss
So get to it and start practicing how you want your first kiss as Mr. and Mrs. to be! Devour the details of the smooch and forever share this wonderful moment with your groom.
