The Wedding Kiss


0180_20130526_Emerson-Enhanced “It’s that kiss … that one you lose yourself in. You realize that you don’t want to kiss anyone else and that you are in love; the world around you disappears except for you and that person.” – Morgan Lafferty

 

This is never more true than the kiss you share on your wedding day. But how much of a kiss should you have? 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 your 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.

 

Other ways to show your excitement. Feeling a little shy about the first kiss, in front of your family, and the photographer and videographer? Here are some ways you can show excitement without showing too much.

Fist pump. The pressure of the ceremony is off and you’re ready to have a good time. Signal so, by showing a fist pump to the crowd.

3 Steps to Building the Ultimate Wedding Package

 

1. Pick Your Wedding Photographer(s)

Whether you want ultra-creative or classic photos, our professional wedding photographers can deliver whatever kind of aesthetic you’re looking for. Each photographer offers their own unique professional approach to wedding photography, and you can pick the right one for you. The photography is just the start of the ultimate wedding package.

2. Pick Your Wedding Videographer(s)

One of the biggest regrets we hear from the over 25,000 couples we have served is that they didn’t get a professional wedding video made. Don’t let that be your regret! Like our photographers, our videographers can create cinematic wedding videos that spotlight your love. Whatever you’re looking for, our videographers will deliver a wedding video that you’ll be able to enjoy for years and share with future generations.

3. Pick Your Wedding DJ & MC

In order to capture photos and videos of the touching, hilarious and memorable moments at your wedding reception, you’re going to need the right music at the right time. The final piece of the ultimate wedding package, our DJs will bring your wedding celebration to the next level. Pick the music, don’t pick the music, create a “do not play list”, or give us no list at all, we’ll get to know you and your guests and construct a playlist that fits just right. But our DJs do more than just play songs, they bring energy to your wedding with engaging announcements, introductions and more.
