A kiss is just a kiss, unless it’s the first kiss you share as husband and wife. And your friends and family are watching. And you’ve hired photographers and videographers to preserve it forever.
While it may not take as much planning as the seating arrangements, the wedding kiss is worth discussing in advance so one of you isn’t going for a peck and the other for the real deal.
Consider you own level of comfort with public affection. If this is not something you or your mate are used to, you can do a very small, brief kiss just to seal your ceremony. If you want to show the congregation how it’s done, be sure you’re both comfortable with doing so.
Think about your family traditions. Will seeing a big, wet wedding kiss make your grandmother faint? What is the typical wedding kiss like in the culture you both hail from? You don’t want your wedding kiss to be talked about for all the wrong reasons.
Is one of you a bigger kisser than the other? Some couples don’t see eye to eye about kissing at the wedding. She wants a big smooch; he thinks it is disrespectful, and so on. It is good to get a sense of which way things will go on the big day, before the big day.
Go For It. When everything is said and done, it is your wedding and you can kiss any way you choose. There is no right or wrong way to kiss on your wedding day. Like anything else in the ceremony, having a sense of how you would like to kiss and be kissed can relieve any “performance” pressure.
