The Wedding Kiss - How to Handle It

in Kiss

You're finally getting married. You have quickly been shaken by the reality that you will be kissing in front of all your family and friends. I don't know about you, but to me, kissing is a private exchange and I feel a little funny about doing it in front of an audience. Here are a few things to consider when going for that kiss after the "you may now kiss the bride" part of your wedding ceremony.

1. A little peck. Resist the urge to do a quick peck on the lips to get this uncomfortable situation over with. You give grandma a quick peck on the lips or cheek, not your bride. If you go for a quick peck on the lips you'll end up looking wimpy and unsure of yourself.

2. The French kiss. French kissing is beautiful but it is quite sensual and intimate. I don't know if you want your mom and dad and your future in-laws see you play tonsil hockey at the altar of a church. Something does not seem right about that.

3. Somewhere in between. I would suggest you meet in the middle. You need a pressing, somewhat lengthy kiss that is lingering but not brief. It should be of a good length but not to the point where people from the audience stay shouting "Wrap it up already!" or "Get a room!"

You and your bride should practice what type of kiss and for how long of a duration you will be doing during your wedding. This will avoid an awkward moment. What if you go for a cute kiss and your bride goes for a ravenous kiss? What if you go for a little tonsil hockey and your bride gets embarrassed? Or worse, she jumps or pulls back! You definitely need to discuss "the kiss" so it goes smoothly.
