Three realities about your wedding night

Three realities about your wedding night


Written by Katie Byrne


Let's talk about sex, ladies and gents...

#1 It's really hard to get out of a wedding dress in a seductive fashion.

It's not as if you can simply wiggle out of it Marilyn Monroe-style and let it drop to the floor. There are zips to be undone, corsets to be unlaced, delicate tulle trains not to be trodden on... Snapping 'get off my veil!'

If you get a chance, try on your wedding dress the day beforehand and practice getting out of it: this will not only help you work out the most fuss-free way of doing so, but will also give you a chance to work out where all the hidden zips and buttons are. 

#2 Don't be offended if someone falls asleep, uh, half-way through. 

After a long day of excitement, partying and high emotions, you'll both be feeling exhausted: fact. Sometimes, when you're feeling super-happy and oh-so comfortable, kissing and cuddling can be so relaxing that you just... Zzz.

#3 Don't put pressure on yourselves.

Sex is meant to be fun, people - so if one of you doesn't feel up to it, don't force yourselves to go through the motions for the sake of it. Instead, snuggle up together, look through the photos your guests have posted on Facebook and brace yourselves for the inevitable hangover in the morning. 

Three wedding night confessions from our readers...

"My new husband hit his toe on the base of our bed almost as soon as we got to our room. Instead of the romantic wedding night I'd imagined, we spent it in A&E, as he'd broken his big toe. Luckily I had a chance to change out of my wedding dress first..." - Lucy, 29

"We stayed in an amazingly atmospheric cottage in the grounds of our venue. As we snuggled up under the covers, we heard a weird scratching noise at the window. We then - and we both heard it - heard footsteps in the room. To say we were freaking out was an understatement. After a thorough investigation of the room, we tried to go back to sleep, although the noises didn't stop. In the morning, we asked the manager of the venue and he said that occasionally there was a ghost of a heartbroken woman who visited the cottage." - Becky, 31

"My groom got so drunk that he wandered out of our reception and fell asleep on the golf course in the grounds. We were searching for him for two hours before we found him." - Hannah, 25
