Nighty Night

Hi Friends, So I was just thinking about what would be fun to write...I always see the bride and groom as they leave their wedding. They are usually exhausted, sometimes they had too much to drink or so happy to throw off their shoes and collapse.

Hi Friends,

So I was just thinking about what would be fun to write…I always see the bride and groom as they leave their wedding. They are usually exhausted, sometimes they had too much to drink or so happy to throw off their shoes and collapse. But wouldn’t it be just icing on the cake if you, the bride actually puts on the gorgeous lingerie you bought or received just for the wedding night? Often we give up tradition for an extra drink. The wedding night is part of the whole experience. (Hey I know most of you all live together)..but I have so many Brides and Grooms that separate the week of the wedding just to have that romantic Honeymoon night together. Even if you can’t imagine staying up one more hour, make it special, re-fresh your make-up let your hair down and start your new life together with passion, love and unity.

    Hi Mindy,

    So true, isn’t it. I hear stories all the time how they were just “to tired”.

    I agree! I cannot believe that isnt standard.

    Hello Mindy — Your very right and I think an effort should be made!! My wedding night was just as fabu as the day itself! After an all day event — we left our “after party” guests down in the hotel lounge to enjoy even more drinks, while we enjoyed eachother. After — we continued the party with the rest of them– and by late late night– enjoyed our heads hitting the pillows! xxoo

    totally agree, what a nice way to end your wedding by getting home and enjoying each other.

    being a wedding photographer and having seen how tired people are at the end of the night, we planned our wedding for early in the day so that we could have plenty of time to just relax and enjoy ourselves when we got home.

    I so agree that the wedding night is as special as the wedding day as it is the time that the bride and groom FINALLY have a chance to revel in their new union together. I suggest enlisting some friends, and going out of your way to make it special. As my husband and I were planning our wedding in our home town, we made it a point to get ourselves a very special room for our wedding night. If we just went back to our own home, that feeling of comfortableness sets in and I’m sure we would not have had as special of a night. We got a room at a local bed and breakfast that had a jacuzzi bath, and I enlisted the help of my bridesmaids. After we departed the reception, they had just enough time to gather a lot of decorations from our reception (i.e. some centerpieces and candles) and decorated the room for us. I was exausted, and so was my new husband as he had been fighting tonsilitis, but when we saw how beautiful our room was, we knew we had to stay up just that little bit longer and enjoy it. And we will always treasure it, esp. since they used decorations from the reception as I did not previously get to enjoy them as much. The whole day turned out perfect.
