By the time they make it down the aisle, most people have likely kissed their partner a few times. But for some reason, the ‘first kiss’ as a married couple can sometimes end up being a little…. cringeworthy. We get it, you’re nervous, you might not be used to kissing your partner in front of all your family and friends – so, we’re here to help you go from ‘awkward’ to aweeee.
Don’t surprise each other
Yes, it is super cute to dip your partner during your first kiss as a married couple. But if they aren’t expecting it then you could end up awkwardly flailing around at the altar, or worse, getting hurt. If you are hoping to have a ‘fun’ kiss, make sure to warn your partner beforehand!
While you may have kissed your partner thousands of times, doing it in front of an audience can change things. Decide beforehand, what kind of kiss you’re going for, and make sure you’re both on the same page!

Don’t forget your audience
While you don’t want your first kiss to be a teeny peck on the lips – you also need to remember who is watching it. Everyone from your dad to your grandma is in the audience so now is not the time for a hot n’ heavy make-out sesh!
Do be yourself
Now is not the time to pretend to be something you’re not. If you as a couple are super chill and laid back, your first kiss should reflect that. You want your wedding to reflect who you are as a couple!
Don’t go too fast
One photo you will cherish forever is one of your first kiss as a married couple. The key to making sure you get that photo is making the kiss last long enough for your photographer to capture it! So, even if it feels a little long, keep that smooch going for a while so you can get all the good photos.
Do hug it out
A big part of making your first kiss not awkward is to not be afraid to touch each other. The day is about celebrating your relationship, so feel free to hug it out before or after your first kiss.
At the end of the day, the best way to make your first kiss not awkward is to enjoy it and be yourselves. Happy Kissing!
